Morning everyone, time for another Theme Thursday and today I’ve chosen …



First up is the card I made for our 10th birthday challenge, the whole team made one each and I’ve been showing them throughout April. The challenge closes at the end of April so still plenty of time to enter if you haven’t already. You can find full details on our separate challenge page at the top of the blog or by clicking on the graphic below

This cute stamp is called So Many Presents although I used one of the handy pre-coloured images from the Party and Cake art pad to save time

Hoppy Easter

Morning, Jen here today whilst Anne is having a nice break...   
I thought I would show you an Easter creation using the very cute "Hoppy Easter" stamp.... 
Make's me want chocolate just looking at that egg!

I have kept it simple... would you expect anything else and simply coloured in the image using Stampin Up markers for the bright colours. 
Simply finishing it off with some signature stitching and a scalloped edge die.

Hope you have a great Good Friday!
