Happy Easter to all of you! I truly hope you have a magnificent weekend... or what's left of it! I had a lazy weekend so far! Friday, made some invites for a friend's daughter's 18th b'day. Saturday, quickly went to work and then went clothes shopping! That was nice... Then got home, and finished the invites. Today, pure bliss, made some cards, walked around in my slippers the whole day... hmmm.... That's resting! Tomorrow, Definitely the same as today.
Now I have to tell you. Most of you are celebrating spring and warmer weather, while we here in SA are starting to freeze. Temperatures are dropping, rapidly, and it's still dark in the mornings when we have to get up. I'm not complaining. I am a winter person. But getting up early when it's cold.... not so nice!
My Kids also went Easter egg hunting in our garden today! I grabbed the camera and set off to take some pics, ended up carrying my LO bag around telling him where to look. Have you ever noticed that even if an object is in front of a child, they rarely see it!? No pics, but isn't it just great seeing their little faces light up every time they spot an egg. That small moments make up for all the naughtiness!!
Onto the challenges!
Here is my card. I know this is a Bride Tilda, but don't you think it works as a Mother's day type of an image. It's a woman holding roses isn't it! I bought this stamp from an online friend here in SA, who by accident ordered double some Maggie's. Got 4 from her. Always nice to get new stamps.... And Lucky me!
