A mixed bag

 Today I'm enjoying an unusually quiet Good Friday with my sons and my Mum.  Quiet because the Lambourn Open Day has been cancelled because of the weather, we usually have upwards of 10 thousand visitors to the village today and I am kept busy doing car parking, raffle and other such tasks.  I've a variety of cards to show today:  first is a very simple wedding card that a friend requested yesterday - for a wedding today!  The sentiment is Waltzing Mouse and the heart is Stamps by Chloe.  My Perfect Layers tool, that I've had for well over a year now, continues to be a favourite gadget to mat and layer and do exactly what it says...
I'm entering this card for:
Simon Says - anything goes
Dutch Dare - clean and simple

 I was asked to make a birthday card with snowdrops on and came up with this card.  I have no idea who makes this lovely stamp, it belongs to my dear friend Val and in my early days of stamping we would stamps out sheets of each others' stamps; luckily I remembered I had this one.
I'm entering this card for:
Jen's digi crafts - spring
Inky Impressions - Easter/ spring
DL Art - spring
Charisma Cardz - happy birthday
Third card is from the Joanna Sheen/ Jane Shasky CD, which I am loving using.  It's a very simple decoupage shaped card and I've added tiny pearls to the centres of the hydrangea petals and some slightly larger ones on the main card.
I'm entering this card for:
Digital Tuesday - spring colours
Penny's Paper-Crafty - anything but square
Milk Coffee - anything but square
Happy Campers - add dimension

Hope everyone has a lovely weekend and that it warms up soon.
