Easter wishes

















During the weekend I finished a couple of projects; a bag and a necklace. I started sewing a book (tutorial will come later) and continued crocheting my doxie. I also tried to make a lighttent, but the pics didn't get much better than usual so I'm quite disappointed at my daylight bulb :(

This card is another thing I finished. I used fantasy easter ocean from sweetpea stamps. This stamp is so cute and I wanted to make it very "eastery". I used my newest bunny die. Isn't it a perfect match?















Here's a pic I took in my lighttent with a daylight bulb. It shows off the shimmer and glitter better, but it's so grey. I read somewhere that you can fix it in photoediting. Any suggestions on how to make it better?
















I made the card with a couple of challenges in mind:

Simon says stamp - easter/spring and some glimmer ( I used twinkling h2os on the bunnies on the image and used bling cardstock for the die. The text has some shimmering embossingpowder.
Stamptacular sunday  - flower power. Can't you just see the card overflow with springflowers?
Pile it on  - animal.riffic. Do bunnies count? Maybe I was supposed to have scary animals?
Stampin for the weekend  - Easter
Humblepie stamps  - Easter





I used a sketch, but forgot where I got it from, lol. If you recognize it let me know.
Woohoo, I found where the sketch was from:
creative inspirations.

This is lovely Katarina. I think taking the photos is the worst part of blogging. Hope the weather gets better soon and it's easier to get better photos!

SUCH a cute card - love the bunny frame!

tip on how to lighten your photo up - open it up in Windows photo gallery, and click "FIX" - then click "Adjust Exposure" and tinker with the brightness and/or contrast. i find this helps me get the TRUE colours of my projects, as sometimes they just don't look right!

thank you for joining us at The TownScrapper this week! good luck in tomorrow's prize draw! :D
