Easter

Good morning and hope you're having a lovely day so far. Welcome to another new follower, Ms. Mustavcoffee. (if you would, please, add your 'name' or blog contact on a comment, so I can add you to my database of followers, especially for any giveaway goodies. I moderate comments - so only "I" will see it. Tried to link back on your Mustavcoffee, and couldn't find you. And thanks for joining as a new follower!)

This will be another scheduled post, so I hope Mr. Blogger is being cooperative with me today. Here's another Easter card, and I'll be adding a St. Pat's card that I received from my niece, Julie, who also does cards. So - on to the cards for today!

- image is a Hoppie from Nellie Snellen (and so easy to color with Copics) and I thought Miz Hoppie was so adorable
- diecut with S/binders Floral Ovals (one of my fav dies)
- background paper was from a snippet embossed with an egg motif Darice Easter Eggs EF
- grass was also snippet paper using an MS grass punch. I doubled the layers for some fullness.

Since this is a scheduled post, I'm not sure about linking to Miss Pixie at the Playground, so I won't throw a bolt in the machinery just cuz I got some snippets here..., but ya'll, check out those Playground cuties. Bound to be something fun going on over the pond...but I bet it's Brrrrr....cold! Could be a cup ov sumfing hot goin' round to warm up yer 'ands. (I've been watching too much Brit tv, haven't I?! We've been following Lark Rise to Candleford, and I just finished an oldie dvd set, Fall of Eagles...great watching.)

Thanks for joining me today, and here's the sweet St. Patrick's Day card we received from our niece, Julie. Hope you enjoy seeing it as much as we did. In the meantime, thanks for spending your time with me today, and many hugs. Ya'll come back again!

Hi Mary!

I just linked your adorable bunny for you! Such a sweet card and beautifully coloured. Love the grass too - I just made a card using an icicle die here, not quite the same effect :(

Mustavcoffee is Gay by the way. Lovely lady and this is her blog: http://mustavcoffee-craftymusings.blogspot.co.uk/

Ahem, an email on the way to you too Missie :))

Hugs, Di xx

Hi Mary, gorgeous card, your colouring is amazing, I had a closer look and you've even got shine on the little shoes!! I don't have copics but love the look of them. Love the frame too, Cathy x

Awww, I love this card Mary! The paper is beautiful and I love that you embossed it, it so subtle but makes a big impact! I love this little image and you have colored it so perfectly! Mary I so need to come down and get lessons on how to color from you!!! No matter how hard I try, it just isn't working for me!! Not sure if I'm just over thinking it or what. lol Love, love this card! Hugs!!
