Pink Gem Holidays

Hi everyone, are you enjoying your weekend so far ... hope you are having fun in the snow and are keeping safe and warm!

Today see;s a new challenge over at A Gem of a Challenge and this week we would like to see any project with a Holiday theme ... this could be Christmas, Easter, Summer or any other kind of holiday you celebrate!

Now i've got to admit, this week was supposed to be just "The Gems" turn to post ... but I got myself all muddle up and created a project too,.... (in fact I created 3!!) it would be rude not to blog them now wouldn't it lol.

(warning ..picture heavy)

I decided to create Easter cards ready for my 3 girls..

Janet has some lovely Easter images in the store, you can buy them individually or in a set as i've done ...if you hurry too they are currently on sale!

I used the same layout for them all....

The papers are all freebies from a magazine!

For all 3 cards I only used 3 sheets of paper and one page with my digi's printed out!

I added little pearls, some doodling and an easter sentiment also from the store.

I do hope you like my little cards, I hope the girls do too!

I've been suffering with a terrible cold this week, so every time I attempt to craft I have to stop to blow my nose... i'm hping to get better soon as I'm getting a bit behind with my DT work :-(

I'm off for a hot lemon now, take care

Hugs xx Cara xx
