Easter with the Dragonflies

Good morning to you from sunny Cyprus. Think Summer's started early here. Hurrah!! Hope you all enjoyed blog hopping with the Dragonflies last week. I'll post later who won the little prize for commenting on my blog.

Over at Crafting with the Dragonflies this week it's Easter already!! We have two fab sponsors and some great prizes.

                                                            Prize: 3 images of winners choice

Prize:7 images of winners choice
Two very generous sponsors don't you think!! Thank you so much.
We were lucky to get digis from both sponsors to play with. I made the first card using a digi from Squigglefly.
I use A4 card from my stash and folded it lengthways to create a tall DL card. I then covered it in spotty yellow paper from my stash. The long piece of orange card down the centre is attached with an orange polka dot brad to create a free swinging pendulum. There's a double mounted strip of card across the centre to slot it down. I coloured in the digi with bright fine ink pens. Then punched a circle shape of green card and circle cut the image and mounted it off centre. Finally I added a bow to the bottom and Easter embellishments down and across the pendulum. A card with a bit of movement that I hope the grandchildren will find fun.
For my second card I used a digi image from Bugaboo.
The base green card was folded landscape or tent fold and yellow card stock was mounted on top. The four squares are cut out of paper and stick-on Easter embellishments were placed on each 'window'. The tag was made using the same card and the image coloured with soft pencils and adhered to the centre. I added bright coloured grograin ribbon to the top and 3 yellow chicks and an Easter greeting.
A strip of summery flowers were placed across the bottom of the main card. Voila!!
I've enjoyed 'playing' with my Easter images and I'm sure you will too. Just pop over to Crafting with Dragonflies (link on sidebar) and be inspired by the rest of the team. Then get yourself another cuppa and visit our generous sponsors.
Remember Have Fun and Happy Crafting!!!
