No blogging for a while - been very busy at work and also we had a few days away in Blackpool.  We enjoyed freak weather - very sunny and warm considering it was the end of March and Blackpool looks so different in the sunshine.   A couple of photos below show a fabulous sunset which we saw every evening and Blackpool tower with a blue sky in the background.

Came back home to "normal" weather - cold, raining, windy but also back to crafting.  Here are a couple of Easter cards I made - one for my friend Anne and another for her mother. 

Made with free papers and images from Simply Cards and Papercraft magazine.  The papers are from Nitwit Spring Whimsy collection.  For the first card the backing paper was a scrap piece of paper from stash.  Also used flowers, scalloped circular die cut and candi from stash. 

The second card was made with free papers as above and just added Happy Easter sentiment stamped on to card and also added gems. 

On return from Blackpool I had to make a Pearl Wedding Anniversary card for a work colleague (had completely forgotten until the day before).  Here it is.  Again I used scraps of paper, die cuts ribbon and pearls in my stash
