Easter cards

I'm well behind with making Easter cards. I made sure I had this afternoon free for crafting, unfortunately my mojo didn't.

Still I managed after a struggle to create a card using the MojoMonday sketch for this week:
I used some DCWV cardstock with the patterned paper being by Craft Creations Ltd and Papermania. The stamped image is a Penny Black one called Fur Ball Fun. The sentiment is a clear stamp by Imaginisce.

I also managed to use the sketch by 2sketches4you to make this card:
For this card I used Sandylion patterned paper, Bazzill paper frills and a chipboard image by K&Co.

The other challenge for the afternoon was on a cardmaking forum and it was to use a Penny Black animal image on the card. Quite easy for me as I love Penny Black stamps and have rather a lot :)

I love the colours in this card:
The rabbits are glittered on the patterned paper by Karen Neuburger (glitter bunnies), isn't it cute? The pink paper is also by Karen and glittered. The image is called "Eggcited Bunny".
The next two cards use a split image called "Spring Parade" a row of 5 chicks which I thought was too long a stamp so I stamped two and then three chicks which came out quite well. The paper in the tulip card is by Paper Salon and Craft Creations Ltd; the "peep" card is by Paper Salon also. I like these two cards the best :) sorry for the marks on the cards - note to self to clean the scanner!

Gotta go and see to dinner. Take care and thanks for looking.
