And the Animals Came in Two by Two!

Good morning to you all - did you have a nice weekend? It was Mothering Sunday here in the U.K. yesterday.  My daughter came over with a gorgeous bouquet of flowers and took me out to a Michelin Starred restaurant for lunch.  My sister came too as she doesn't have any children and has always been like a second Mum to mine.  We had a lovely time and I felt like the Queen!

Today sees the start of a new challenge at Lexis Creations and the theme this week is Easter we want to see your creations made for Easter, here is mine:

Mmmmm quite a busy card I think!  The image is by Your Next Stamp coloured with my Copics and chalk for the sky which you can't really see that well.  The papers are Nitwits Waddles Whimsy and the little duck in the corner comes from the set.  The sentiment is Inca stamps and I used Marianne die to cut it out.  Heart banner is La La Land and Dienamics Stitched Rectangles to cut the image out.  Here is another view:

Please pop over to the challenge at Lexis to see the rest of the creations by the DT.
