**** My card WON CUP OF THE WEEK at The Play Date Cafe!! Delighted!! : ) ***
We had a great Easter, it was nice to spend some quality time with family! We had a wonderful picnic in a nearby forest park on Saturday... there's a few pics at the end of this post! Ok, I managed to squeeze in some late night crafting last night and here's the result! The colors (which I just couldn't resist! they're Cath Kidston inspired) are from this week's color challenge (PDCC78) at The Play Date Cafe.
The sketch I used is from Sketchbook Saturday Challenge #8. I substituted the butterfly with a cupcake!
For the sentiment I used Half Pint Heroes by Waltzingmouse Stamps. I made the label using one of the stamps from Bitty Banners, I just inked up the ends and stamped either end to make up the label. I'm so glad I use clear stamps I'd have no chance of lining up the ends otherwise!!
The stars I stamped on the cupcake are also from Bitty Banners by Waltzingmouse Stamps, I embossed them in white.
For the cupcake I just drew a simple cupcake shape and paper-pieced the sections, I added a little stitching for interest. Here's a few photos from our picnic!
There's a fabulous lake at Curraghchase, it was such a fabulous day, not too hot, just perfect for a picnic!
Isabelle had a great time feeding the swans and ducks with daddy! (Shh, don't tell him I posted a pic of him!)
There were beautiful old trees, I love the dappled light through the leaves.
Oh and there were lots of pretty bluebells... white ones too, which I'd never seen before!
Isabelle saw lots of butterflies, this is the only one that would stay still long enough for me to take a photo!!
Isabelle insisted on folding the picnic blanket up neatly!!
She did a good job!!
Of course no visit to the park would be complete without a swing on the tyre swing!! Oh and an ice cream on the way home!! : ) I hope you had a lovely Easter too!
