Beads and Bunnies

 I'm quite late getting to my Less is More Challenge this week, it has been a busy few days.  I enjoyed a lovely visit to the NEC with Lady Limette Chrissie and then the next day was off down to Plymouth for applicant day at the Uni with younger son.  Today I am catching up on the chores before collecting older son from Uni, no peace for the wicked!

Chrissie and I both bought some tapestry stamps from Card-Io and I used some to make a simple Easter card this morning, hope it has enough white space to be LIM!  The challenge is to use beads and if you look carefully you can see that there are seed beads stuck to the centres of the flowers.  Sentiment is Waltzing Mouse.
This card is also entered for:
Addicted to CAS -  Spring
2 Sisters - Easter/spring
Cardmaking Mamas - spring colours
Simon Says - Easter/spring
On Thursday I was asked to make someone EIGHT decoupage Easter cards!  Having not been home until now this is a bit of a challenge, but here goes with the first one, another Jayne Netley Mayhew/ Joanna Sheen decoupage.  This card is also entered for:
Speedy Fox and Friends - bunnies or Easter
Chocolate, coffee and cards - bring on spring
Crafts4Eternity - egg-cellent Easter
Creative Corner - layer it up
Raise the Bar - spring is only a hop away!
Off to get older son's room ready and then play with my NEC goodies, keep warm everyone.
