Happy Easter!

Happy Easter everyone, I hope you had a great weekend with your family! We had a great 5 days at home doing not much at all really!  It was so nice to not have to worry about being here, there and everywhere at a certain time. The kids have had fun playing, we did a little bit of clearing up outside and enjoyed a bit of shopping:-)  

While I had loads of free time this weekend I only made one card.  I found myself enjoying my other hobby/day job - web work.  My dear friend (and super talented stamper) Bron let me fiddle with her blog and give it a bit of a makeover.  I've been bugging her for ages to let me play...not that there was anything wrong with her old blog,  she's just a thoughtful, kind person that's always there when you need her, so I wanted to make it one of a kind... just for her :-)  

I managed to finish it off yesterday so I decided to do a challenge.  Given that Bron is now on the DT for Magnolia Down Under, it was an easy choice. Here's what I came up with...

A little out of my comfort zone with all those greens, but I think I really like it!

Papers: Kaisercraft Chapter One DSP, SU Basic Black cardstock
Stamps: Papermania Born to Shop sentiment, Magnolia 
Copics: Skin - E11,000,00, R20 Hair - E25,49, 53, 59, Jeans - B97, 95, 91 
Shoes & Handbag C9, 7, 5, 3, 1 Top - G02, G00, G000, Shopping Bags E55, E43, 41 40
Pendant - YR28, spica
Embellishment - flock flower ribbon, SU Tag punch, black satin ribbon, flowers handmade with SU boho flower punch, glimmer mist and DSP,  SU bling brads, kaisercraft black rhinestones.
Unfortunately it's back to school for the kids and work for me tomorrow, so time to curl up with my book for a little while. Hope you have a great week

thanks for stopping by,
