I really love the little bird in the “Good Friends” set from the new 2009-10 Idea Book and Catalogue.  I couldn’t wait to use it to do some paper piecing with the retro look paper featured in the Good Morning Sunshine range and the new Kiwi Kiss in-colour. 

I don’t really do many Easter cards so I was really happy that this cute little bird could work as an easter chick.  Combined with a sentiment from the versatile All Occasions set I think I managed to pull it off.



I know I said I would be back with some samples from the new catty but between preparing for my Open Day and New Catalogue Launch on Saturday 25 April and a quick weekend away with the family for Easter I haven’t got a lot done yet.  In the meantime here is a card I made a couple of weeks ago for my nephew’s 4th birthday.


The astronaut is from Lizzie Anne Design’s “Out of this World” and has been watercoloured using the new in-colours Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss and Tangerine Tango.  The spaceship paper is out of my stash and is Basic Grey I think with a base card of Pacific Point.   As you can see this little guy is experiencing the low gravity on this planet and has lifted off (should have used my Stamp-a-ma-jig) but I really enjoyed the colouring on this one.

Hope you all enjoy a happy and safe easter and that the Easter Bunny has hopped into your yard.
