EASTER TIME



Hi to you all 
I have been back in the craft room creating some Easter cards 
I used the free die and papers from 
Issue 188 of simply card and papercrafts magazine in the uk 
I love this Issue so just had to share 
This month they also have Elegant digital download from Nitwit Collections 
I just love the Nitwit collections so have made a few cards with their papers 






Here are my cards 



For the daffodils I used the paper squares you can print out in the different shades made it easy to use and get good shading on the layers 
on the first card I made a box front and added a sentiment I had and small gems all the papers are from the free download 
on the second card I added my own sentiment and a bow 

 Here are the Nitwit cards I made 









On these cards I used the papers in my graphics program and layered them up using some of the embellishments in the collection and the wording also the clocks which I just love 
I added some glitter and glue gems 
I would like to enter the first cards into some challenges 

Thanks for taking the time to look happy crafting to you all
