We're going on an egg hunt

And they're off! An early morning egg hunt to kick off Easter Sunday this morning. I love the anticipation of this photo. It is straight out of camera, so sorry for the slightly off colour balance.

The basket is one I made last year- I recommend origami baskets made out of vellum, thin but very strong!

A very happy Easter to you and your family.

"Thus it is written, that the Christ should suffer and on the third day rise from the dead, and that repentance and forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in his name to all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem." Luke 24: 46-47.

Silhouette girl card

Several months ago after some encouragement (thanks Heike!) I submitted a set of cards to a magazine and to my shock, they actually published them. Who would have thunk it?

Well, this was the idea that started it all: Stamping on the back of patterned paper and cutting out the image to make a silhouette. And it works brilliantly with this stamp which is one of my favourites (Me and My Balloon by Laughing Moon.)

So now that it is past sale date- I get to say thanks to Australian Cardmaking, Stamping and Papercraft and share them here.

Wishing you all sunshine and laughter...
