Easter Preparations

Easter is less than 2 weeks away ...
 I remember as a little girl getting a new pretty cotton dress and new sandals for Easter
As I remember it ... Easter Sunday was always sunny ... warm enough to walk to church in a cotton dress and crisp white ankle socks 
Maybe it's because Easter is early this year ... but it sure is cold here still!

Tonight at Thursday Club my group are looking forward to making Easter cards ... Being as they are all either physically or mentally challenged (or both) ... I always need to come up with something that looks not too babyish (they are all 18 - 60+) but that they can just assemble ... It can take a few days I can tell you!

So we are going to make popup cards something like this...

All the cards and inserts are cut ready to assemble ... the embellishments done .. some bought some printed and cut and of course lots of bows hand tied ...

And what is Easter without an Easter bag?

... and more embellishments - I think I could tie bows in my sleep!

And I couldn't forget these guys ...

... But what good would a bag be without treats to put in?

Yes the important ingredients!
I have catered for just over 20 ... but I always carry extras just in case ... 

See you when I've recovered ...

Keep safe

Sweet little Birds

Good morning!

Our challenge at Papercraft Star this week is Birds

We just want to see a bird or birds on your project ... 

It may still be like Winter here but the birds are more than hopeful that Spring is just around the corner ... As dawn breaks they are in full song and busy throughout the day ... The Magpies are already building nests in the trees beyond my garden ... not that they are my favourite birds ... 

So, on to my card ... which I made for my Aunt's 86th birthday last week

I love that K&Co image ... so Spring like

... and glittery

The ladies at Papercraft Star are really looking forward to seeing your creations so please come and join us 
Here's a link to the Blog so you can check out the rest of the DT projects and please be sure to read the rules 

I'm busy with the Easter projects for my sweet group so I'll catch up with you soon

Have a beautiful day
