Happy Easter one and all

Hi everyone.  Hope your Easter is going well.  I am enjoying spending time with my friends, Michael and Yvonne, at their bach ( holiday home).  I'm sneaking some time on the Internet while the other's are doing some work around the house.  The weather is coolish today but was rather warm overnight...  yesterday was lovely, enough for the others to swim ~ but too cold for me.  I'm such a wooss when it comes to swimming in the sea.

I've managed a card earlier in the week, for the Hostess Same Stamp challenge over on the Flickr Hero Arts Group.  The hostesses all have "Antique Engravings" and challenged each other and us, to use it .  I had popped into my LSS on Wednesday and saw a sample card from Jill on display and loved it so thought I'd recreated it as best I could.

EDITED:
REMOVED FROM THE BLOG AS THE LSS WAS OFFENDED THAT I RECREATED THEIR SAMPLE - PLEASE NOTE THAT WAS NEVER MY INTENTION AND I APOLOGISE FOR ANY OFFENCE CAUSED.


I did another one for my DT challenge for June... so you'll just have to keep guessing what it looks like till then.   It's hard to make cards so far in advance of the date I can share with you.  But I'm loving being on the team.  Please do join me at Simply Scrapping Crafts and join a few of the amazing groups there.

Well. I've been sprung.... so I better sign off and go help with doing some stuff round the house.  The guys are putting up some fascia on the garage and Yvonne is doing some work in the bedrooms.  Getting them ready for painting I think.  Enjoy the rest of your Easter weekend.

What?? That is absurd that you had to remove the photo! Most people should be honored that you love/like their creation enough to 're-create' it and as long as you justify what you did and mention their name and work, that is sufficient! I can't believe they were offended! So wished I could have seen the card!
