Happy Easter

This year has been rushing by so fast, I seem to be permanently behind.
With our son, granddaughter, and most friends either living overseas or 
many miles away, I have to make cards, and sent them well in advance
of any special occassion. This Easter has caught me by surprise!

Early last week I realised that I needed to make a card (in a BIG hurry) for our 
little granddaughter in London. I have had this pretty paper for ages, and because
I didn't have time to find and colour an Easter image, I decided to use some of
the cute stickers that were included in the paper pad.

Inside the card, again using paper and a sticker from the paper pad.

I didn't have a die that suited the shape of the larger sticker, so I 
hand-cut a matt for it with scallop-edged scissors.

The sticker that I placed in the inside of the card.

This morning, I washed our doonas and towels, so with the shadows lengthening, I had best go and take them off the clothes line.  

I will be on duty at the Fort tomorrow, as there is a very large cruise ship coming into harbour for the day. The 'boss' has asked for as many guides as possible, as we often have up to 1,000 people visit the Fort when these large ships come in. More unseasonally hot weather is predicted tomorrow (today is 30oC), so I will be in bed early tomorrow night, as I do not handle hot weather well, and I will be on my feet all day. Having said that, I find it ever so interesting meeting people from all over the world.

I wish you all a happy and safe Easter.
