An Easter card with a difference

Just noticed I lost a follower today, so waving goodbye, maybe you'll be back, who knows. Thanks to all those of you who take the time to come and visit and leave comments. I appreciate it so much.

I was asked to make an Easter card for someone who loves pink so decided to use one of the gorgeous Fairyopolis images from the Crafter's Companion CD. I teamed her with some Henbury Lane papers, raffia lace, an MS punched butterfly with pearls and a gorgeous sparkly flower from Michaels.

Just heard on the news that we have a hosepipe ban coming into force next month which is bad news. Shan't be buying lots of plants for the garden this year unless they are drought tolerant. Much as the dry weather is nice we really need some rain. Wouldn't it be lovely if it could rain every night whilst we are asleep.

Hi Marianne. Love your card, such a pretty image. Been over to our local reservoir last week and it looks pretty full! Not surprised, we have had lots of rain - you know what they say about Devon - Devon, Devon glorious Devon rains six days out of seven!! Jill x

I try ever so hard not to take it personally when a follower disappears, but it's still not a nice feeling is it? Hugs, Lisa x
