And now for a wee crafting interlude.....

Afternoon to you all and Happy Easter.
Are you having fish tonight?  I don't know what we are doing as the cupboards are bare, best I go food shopping soon.
It is a beautiful sunny day here in the north of Scotland, so much so my conservatory furniture has been stripped and is now hanging on the line.  #Spring cleaning.
I've got everyone home so I won't be getting any crafty time today but it is great weather for a long walk along the beach and an ice-cream.

Instead of more holiday snaps today I had been asked for a couple of bespoke cards so I thought I'd share them instead today....just in case you thought I'd given up crafting all together?!

The first brief was a donkey, not a cute Eeyore type of donkey, a proper one.

Apparently the lady in question keeps Donkeys and it is not a slur on her character!

The second was for a simple bunch of flowers.

Briefs followed to the letter, the cards went out last night before I made another couple of crochet flowers.
I shall be sharing that project when it is finished.

It only remains for me to wish you all the very best for this Easter weekend, I'm in work tomorrow but hoping to enjoy a nice family chill out day Sunday with maybe a nice roast dinner.

I hope you have a visit from the Easter bunny too.  x

Erika two great cards, done to the brief given. That donkey one is fab. Yes we have had a lovely day, took Anna into Dundee to get her Dr Martins but that was it the two of us couldn't wait to get out of there, oh country life is far better, we couldn't get over the sites?? Plus it was just to busy. Down side of getting back quickly we had to attack the family/ playroom not an easy task with two girls who didn't see why they had to do it. But that's kids for you, not good that you have to go to work tomorrow. Enjoy Sunday Hazel xx

Brilliant cards, love them both but the donkey one is really good.
Do you print the sentiments onto your card using your computer??
I love the effect you get, I would never get the greeting in the right place if I tried printing.
Happy Easter to you and yours

Happy Easter to you and your family Erika.

Loving those cards, simple is always best for me just now. Cardwise I have been really lazy recently but I've done lots of knitting and crocheting specially while I'm off work.
