Moving Along With The Times 'Easter Wishes' Challenge

Firstly I would just like to say thank you for all the wonderful Anniversary/Birthday messages I received on here and on Facebook, you are all wonderful. I had three wonderful days of cards and amazing pressies including Mother's Day but my children are sure pleased this week is over as it has been an expensive one for them!

Now onto the job in hand. This week it is Lisa's turn to set the challenge at Moving Along With The Times and she picked 'Easter Wishes'. Our sponsor for this week's challenge is Digi My World who very kindly gave us some images to play with and I have used Holly Ears, isn't she cute.

This is a first for me as I have never made an Easter card before and had to dig deep to find these papers that have been in my stash so long I don't know where they came from, I think they may of been an old DCWV Spring Stack but not totally sure. I will give this card to my god daughter with her Easter Egg but of course that now means I need to make another Easter card for my god son. Two in one year wow that is a record for sure lol.
