Preparing for Easter and 1st Communions

For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.

  1Corinthians 11:26

We have a busy week ahead with Easter Sunday being the children’s 1st Holy Communion and a craft morning planned for local children on Good Friday.  By busy, I mean that I have to fit lots of crafting in as I’ll need cards for all of these occasions.


Today though I am sharing a simple Easter card that I have made using a Hunkydory Kit.  I love spots and dots and this backing paper is delightful.  The diecut squares are edged with gold foiling and everything is mounted onto a gold 5″ x 5″ card blank.


I’ll be entering these challenges today: – any digi goes – Anything goes – (Purplies) Easter – for a child – Easter – happy Easter – Easter – Easter – Easter – spots or dots

Art deco

A feast is made for laughter, and wine maketh merry: but money answereth all things

Ecclesiastes 10:19

This is a 3D decoupage image made into a card solely using Docrafts projects. I chose the yellow card blank to emphasise the yellow of her dress and although there are the colours of the sea and trees, this is a card in yellow, black and grey – striking and perfect for the Art Deco theme. I made this card for a lady who has recently left work.  The range is called Art Deco and makes me long for a glamourous picnic by the sea…with champagne of course!




Here are the challenges I’ll be entering today: – anything goes/spring – anything goes – 3d

Today’s challenges are: – bears in mind – for a child – teddy bears – no flowers – clean and simple

Hopoe you are enjoying Easter holidays,
