WOYWW - Happy Easter !

Hi wishing you all a Happy Easter !
Just a few Easter cards and a Journal page on my desk this week

I have been having a bit of a ongoing problem with pain in my hands and so action at my work-desk has been limited, as my ability to grip & my dexterity has been something of a problem !

So as the cards had to be easy to put together, toppers from Hobbycraft were pressed into service !

Along with some wooden bunnies,eggs & lambs with ribbons and papers from the Country Crafts collection.

These lambs remind me of the ones we see in the fields around us here in West Wales !

This card isn't very Easter themed but I made it for my friend Helen, who has just opened a cake making & baking shop - so when I saw these papers they just demanded to be made into a card for her !

And finally I made a page for my Wanderlust Book - this challenge was "What I See When I Look In The Mirror" - which is an older, wrinklier, if wiser & slimmer - version of the women I think I am in my head !!  Time wreaking its inevitable havoc !

Wishing you all a lovely Easter ! Ali xx


  1. love your cards - and hope my namesake does well with her shop! Your Wanderlust page is great.

  2. Hi Ali, loving all the cards. The baking one is awesome. Regarding the stencil paste, I had exactly the same problem all the time. It was going to a demo day where Lucy Ellis from Sweet Poppy stencils was, and she gave out some great tips. I've put them all in my post' Sweet Poppy Stencils Demo Day'- there are quite a few, and it's along post, but trust me, her tips are worth their weight in gold!I haven't had a single crap piece since. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #29 xxx

  3. Sorry, that should read 'SCRAP', lol. xxx

  4. Happy WOYWW - and still laughing at Shaz's comment above! Sorry to hear about the pain in your hands. Have you seen the doctor? When my hands are especially sore I wear some compression gloves. Hunkydory toppers are so useful. I haven't bought any for years, but still have some in my stash drawers. Ali x #63

  5. Very pretty Easter cards. The cake one is my favourite! Hope your hands feel better soon.

  9. Sorry to hear about your hand. Your makes are great. Hope you find some answers and a way to deal with the pain. Peg 70

  10. I'm sorry your dexterity is giving you problems. Adaptation is the name of the game. And you have done so by making some great cards. I love the one for the cake maker. Is that decoupage?
    Thanks for visitng,
    Have a lovely Easter weekend,
