Loved the step card. I need to revisit that card first effort was disasterous. Yours is great! Love the pretty trims - and of course the punched butterflies. The LOTV image is of course, delightful, and I'm liking the sentiment dies. (which I will guess are Joanna S? So pretty). What a wonderful Mother's Day card. And Happy Easter to you - along with hugs & TFS

Congrats on your guest designer spot Mrs A. These are LOVELY xxx

Gorgeous Mother's Day card - I still haven't tried one of these step cards, but will do eventually.

I did see our entries on Hillary's Pintrest board - when I looked yours was right up at the top. I'm glad I did look because today I received an email from them with the title 'competition winner' or something like that - I would have thought I'd won, what a disappointment that would have been - lol.

Hope you have a lovely Easter xx

Di said...

BEAUTIFUL Mrs A!! Aren't those LOTV images a brilliant starting point - and I love the stepper. Technique Tuesday's current (and sadly very last) challenge is to make a side stepper card. I know this is a double but I bet you could make anudder one :) You have a while yet - end of month I think.
