Happy Easter!

Hello my dear friends !

I am back again, didn't do WOYWW because I had a long day and wanted to finish off all my cards for Easter - I will show you my cards and also some little Easter baskets I have made for my friends at work...
Today is Good Friday - most of you people in England and Europe are starting your Easter holidays - we are not off today - will start our holidays tomorrow - actually just a prolonged weekend! The sun is out but I must say we are having a proper April this year with weather going from very warm and sunny to bitterly cold and windy and lots of showers! Still I am hoping that means I will have a lovely May in England :-) .
Okay lets get up to business then....
Here are my cards.....They are all photos from my phone....I have used various techniques, mostly coloring and die cutting - I still can't get myself to do the stenciling with modelling and embossing paste - it is quite messy and I have so little space on my desk - as I move my "workspace" to the terrace I guess I will start on that sort of technique...

I am having a bit of a love affair with dies and die cutting as you can see on this card....



Next up is die cutting and coloring....ohhh these cute bunnies....


This card is a bit of a modern approach - I like Debbie Hughs cards so sometimes I try to go a bit into a more CAS way but still - it is so hard not to put an embelishment on....

These 2 cards are one of my favourite - The background on one of them is embossed and then lightly tapped with various TH DI, the other is just watercolor painting and both have added die cuts...The hollyhocks die is one of my favorites at the moment!!!







This chic is really cheeky!!!Makes you happy just to look at it!


These 2 cards are made with Graphic 45 papers - it was a tough call cutting into them but totally worth it as they are just sooo beautiful!





All of these cards will be entered into a challenge at MAVELU internet craft shop - their challenge is Easter so I think my post totally suits the challenge!
As last I would like to show you my little Easter baskets - they were my first - I am not really a paper crafter but I think I did well....





Yes of coarse there are chocolate eggs in them!


Thats all folks - see you next week - have a lovely Easter - enjoy time with your family and friends!
Lots of love, hugs and Easter blessings to all,
CARDARIAN
