For Peeps' Sake - it's nearly Easter!

The spring bulbs are showing off their colour, the sun is shining and there's even a touch of warmth in the air... it's time to crack on with those Easter makes and Stampin' Up has everything you need! Come and see the card I made with For Peeps' Sake:

It doesn't take long to make a whole bunch of this simple design! I started with the washi tape, then coloured the egg stamp with markers before stamping above it. The sentiment was stamped above that in sunny Daffodil Delight, and then I added a border of happy-looking flowers below the washi - using a stamp from the Nature's Perfection set which you can choose for free in the Sale-a-bration promotion.

It's often the details that lift a card and in this case, a snippet of cotton ribbon stapled to the panel  and topped with a bakers twine bow does the trick!

That free flower stamp from Nature's Perfection is perfect for creating stamped designer paper too as you can see in this version. I prefer the simple border personally - how about you?

• You'll find For Peeps' Sake on p.34 of the spring/summer catalogue along with some more great ideas for using it!

I've been a bit of a poorly pudding with a chest infection over the last week but I still managed my puppy duties of course, wrapped up well, and was thrilled to see the partial solar eclipse on Friday. The photos OH took didn't come out at all except (she said smugly!) the one I suggested he took through the lens of my sunglasses.

See that thin crescent shape in the centre? That's all you can see of the sun as the moon passes in front of it. I found this so exciting but... hello? Hello?! Where have you gone?! Come back!!

I'll be back with more crafting inspiration tomorrow - and there'll be no eclipses in sight, I promise!
