Happy Easter

Woo hoo - I've got 4 days off.  So what will I be doing?  Well, I've got some homework (that's what I call my magazine work) to do, so that means I get to craft - yeah :)  Then I'll be recharging my batteries and spending some time with my family.  Sounds like a great plan to me.
I sneaked in a bit of crafting last night and have made cards for some challenges:

This one is for Daring Cardmakers at their challenge this week is to be inspired by egg shapes or chocolate or both!  So I went for chocolate.  I've had these little chocolate stamps from gel-a-tins for years but I still love them and thought they were perfect for this challenge. 

The second one is a new home card and as it's a shaped card I'm entering it into this weeks challenge at A Spoon Full of Sugar.  I still need to make a box for it but that won't take a minute with my Ultimate Pro :)  The key, the papers and the die cuts are all from craftworkcards, they've got some gorgeous stuff at the minute.  The fabulous flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts  and I blame Jacqui for my latest addicition!!

Last but not least is this little cutie.  The papers including the owl are from the Papermania Honey & Hugs 6" x 6" paper pack.  I love making toppers from patterned paper.  It's a great way to make those pennies go a bit further.  I'm popping this card into 2 challenges:

So I hope everyone has some time off and gets to relax for a few days xxx
