Happy Easter - Digistamp Boutique Easter Cards

Good morning and happy Easter.  It's the start of British summertime today and I've remembered to put all of my clocks forward an hour this morning, I'm sure that I will feel the effects of losing an hour a bit later on.

I just thought I'd share a couple of  the Easter cards that I've made using images from Digistamp Boutique.  The first card was for my 3 year old niece so I wanted a cutesy image.

I have used
Daisy from the Digby and Daisy set by Digistamp Boutique coloured with copics.
The DP's are from my stash, they have got separated from the rest of the paper pack so not sure of the make or name.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
Little Red Wagon - Easter/Spring
Digistamp Boutique - March competition

The next card I made is a one layer card so I made a few of these with different colour variations to send to a different people.

I have used:
The image and greeting are from the Easter Branch set by Digistamp Boutique.

I have printed the image and greeting on a 5" square piece of smooth card and coloured with copics before mounting onto yellow card (it looks a bit lime green in the photo but it is yellow).  I then just added a few sequins.

Have a great Easter and enjoy all those chocolate eggs.

See you soon x

Mother days card for Crafty Calendar March Challenge

Good afternoon to everyone.  I hope that you're all well on the rainy Saturday afternoon. Today I got up and decided to sort my wardrobe out, do you ever wish you hadn't started doing a job because it then got more involved and took more time than anticipated.  At least it's finished now.

Today is the first Saturday in March so we have a new monthly challenge for you over at Crafty Calendar.  Here in the UK tomorrow is Mother's Day so our theme for this month is 

For this challenge I have tried a different style of card.....

I have printed the image 'A Special Flower' from A Day for Daisies onto textured card then coloured with Faber-Castell polychromos. 
I cut the textured card to a 13.8cm square with my image in the bottom corner then printed the greeting 'Best Mom' from Digistamp Boutique.
I then stamped a few flowers and coloured them, doodled a wiggly border, added some perfect pearls onto the flowers and the butterfly is from the Butterfly Wishes III stamp set from Clearly Besotted.

It was going to be a one layer card but I couldn't resist adding the butterfly and then layering onto pink card before added it to the white 6" card blank.
