Happy Easter!

Hi guys! Hope you're all well and enjoying your Easter break if you are getting the time off work. Hubbie isn't working which is wonderful so we are well and truly enjoying the weather and time together. In fact, I best get on with showing you my cards....

First up is a Riley card using one of my fav Riley stamps- Coffee Riley. I coloured him with copics, paper pieced his armchair and added some shading with copics and lyra pencils. Papers are all by Doodlebug. I used MFT Die-namics die for the star borders.

I'd like to enter this into:
Riley & Co- aqua, yellow & brown
MFT- sketch 16
Cupcake Craft Challenge- lots of layers
Papertake Weekly- spots n stripes
Crafty Creations- 1 technique, 2 embellies, 3 papers (paper piecing, dienamics die & brad, 3 papers)
Pile it On- use a rubber stamp

While I'm doing a Riley card, I'd like to give a big shout out for the Riley & Company Challenge blog which holds challenges on a Tuesday every other week. Go check out all the amazing designs by the DT.

Crafty stash used: Stamps (Riley, Papertrey Ink); Papers (Doodlebug); Assorted cardstock; Star border (MFT Die-namics); Brad; Nesties; Copics; Lyra pencils

And a quick little card I did for our friend's little girl- super quick and simple this one. I was going to put some buttons on it but then thought it looked better just simple. These little teddies are of course Penny Black coloured with watercolour pencils. Paper is Cosmo Cricket stitched straight on my card blank. I added rub-on letters. Click on the image for a better look as this photo doesn't really do it justice- you can see my shading alot better!

I'd like to enter this into:
Crafty Catz- card for a child
Delicious Doodle Challenge- anything goes

Crafty stash used: Stamps (Penny Black); Watercolour pencils; Copics; Paper (Cosmo Cricket); Rub-ons

Are you enjoying the shorter, more frequent posts? I think I might stick with this if poss and if everyone prefers it?!! Have a fabbie Easter xxxxx
