3 Easter cards Carrie and I made and swap tags I have received from DC forum

I've not blogged for over a month, life has gotten in the way and been way too stressful so thought it was about time to recify that.

This week I made an easter card for an easter card and chocolate bar swap on Docrafts forum
very fiddly decouapage, easter ribbons and flower ribbons on glitter carsd and green card base, all elemtns from my stash, makers unknown.

Last night Carrie (almost 8) made 2 easter cards for her cousins Lottie and Ellie. all I did was give her  ahuge pile of resources and cut the paper on the trimmer, everything else was her design, she cut out all the sentiments, not all can be seen as some are inside the cards or on envelopes, forgot to photograph them before sealing. the stamped images were won in a draw on docrafts from Samantha, she has coloured 6 easter images from Sam already, last night was such fun watching her share my passion for crafting!

Both cards use backing papers and sentiments which came free in April's 'Crafters Beautiful' magazine, (a mothers day gift from my daughter Anne-Marie. she also bought me simply Cards & papercraft mag, Quick cards mag, acrylic stamps and skeleton leaves, so chuffed!) 
host swap tags -

I belong to a monthly scrapbook forum tag swap on Docrafts forum. Each month we make 2 tags one for our swap partner and one for that months host. I was host in February and chose the theme of love, these are the stunning, inspirational tags I received which are displayed  on my wall in my craftroom and are all treasured.

thankyou Kay, June, Lesley, Gina, Donna, Helen, Svjetlana, Kelly and Karen.
