Hello and welcome back to my little corner of the world. Hope you're fine and ready for what ever life has in store for you. Despite this cheerful greeting this morning, I feel sad. It has been a hard time as one of the kids over at my youngest day care passed away about a week and half ago. It was very sudden and unexpected. So at the moment are we both here at home and over at the day care spending a lot of time with working with the grieving process. Here it shows in tantrums, anger and sadness. If I only know what to say...
This is how it looks when I look out this morning. The question is: Is this spring? LoL Snowing again, well at least it's not that bad as they said on the weather report that it would be. Best yet to come maybe?
It felt good to get that out, and now I will try to write something about this little card of mine. I have not been very inspired to make cards as you understand, but have done my best in this hard period. We have a new challenge up today over at the Paper Shelter and the theme is "Spring". And since I have always felt that spring starts with Easter here in Sweden, I made another Easter card with this fun and cheerful image called Easter Masterpiece. Nice and easy to colour and this time I have really kept my colouring really simple. To get a little more life in the empty corner of the image I used chicken wire stamp from Magnolia and a sentiment stamp from LOTV. Should have used brown ink, I know but it can't always be perfect, can it?
Once again I have used the Paper Pad from First Edition called Spring Drop. Love the colours in this pad, but I hate, or maybe dislike the glittery ones so by now I have torn all of the most glittery stuff out from the pads I have and gave them to the school. Kids in the age of 7 or so loves their glitter and they will be put to good use.
I have been a bit lazy and used the left overs from my last TPS card when I also made an Easter card. It was all I had energy for. A string is also added to the card and a little charm. Some die cuts from the Spring Drop pad is used to decorate the card with as well. Pearls from Bunny Zoe's is also used.
So this week's theme over at the Paper Shelter is "Let it be Spring". So all and everything that you connects with spring time will fly this week. Pastel colours, Easter, sunshine, etc. Just bring it on and make the world a little lighter.
Love n hugs
