Easter Shopping

Picture 693
I have started to buy bits and pieces when I see them for the  baskets I am planning to make this Easter. I thought these chocolate coins were a bit different from Morrisons for 99p a net.

First Day at School Card

These cards measure 12.5 cm x 12.5 cm and are made using  white linen effect card.

These Provocraft Stand-Out stickers were perfect for these First Day at School cards and at only 29p a packet (from HobbyCrafts sale), I got two packets, and went the whole hog and used all the embellishments per pack on each card.

I’ve used a red and blue gingham backing paper, so perhaps,  (but not wishing to stereotype) one could be for a girl and the other a boy.
First Day at School Card 1
Every year I say that I ought to make more First Day at School cards, as it’s not the sort of card you see in many shops. It’s something I’m sure grandparents etc. would love to send to mark such a special occasion.

My Favourite Photos from The Czech Republic

I had a lovely time in the Czech Republic and managed to get a few hours to myself to go out with my camera. Picture 716
I know it sounds a bit odd but on Friday I took myself to the tiny cemetery that was near the hotel, and fell in love with this small statue standing on her own in the snow.

Then as I walked around I noticed that the snow/ice had formed into what looked like the feathers of an angels wing.

My photography just doesn’t do justice to the beauty.Picture 280
It was cold, but it wasn’t that that gave me tingles down my spine.
