Pinkie time again.... (let's face it, it's never NOT pinkie time here..)

Hi all

It's time again for a new challenge at In The Pink...  these fortnights come around soooooooo fast!  This time, the theme is Spring/Easter...  which at first I thought would be quite difficult to do..... but then once I dug around - I came up with some fab digis that were perfect for my DT cards!

My first card uses a digi from From The Heart.... and it was an easy image to colour...  of course, my favourite pink copics were used again and again...  think they're going to be worn out soon!

Card Recipe:

  • Image - Easter Egg Tulips - From the Heart
  • Copics to colour
  • A4 sized Spellbinders M-bossability...  fabulous to use for larger size cards
  • Own doodling around image (yikes.!)
  • Papertrey Ink Mini Tag die
  • Sentiment done on PC
  • Glitter and twine from stash
  • Bazzill Cardstock from stash
And now onto my second DT card.. (a bit picture heavy this one, but wanted to show all angles!)

Card Recipe:
And this time I can't decide on my favourite.....  normally I can.  So which do you prefer???  

It's my lovely OH's birthday tomorrow.... and believe it or not, I went out to buy him a card this morning...  I can never come up with a card for a man that I like...  and I tell him it's more special for me to buy it for him... Anyway, we're off out for a nice lunch in a lovely pub above Ilkley...  hope the sun shines a bit!!

Big hugs to all and Happy Crafting.... oooh and don't forget to pop over to In The Pink..
