Shocked, amazed stunned even - to see Hot Cross Buns and chocolate Easter bunnys available for sale at the supermarket yesterday! Haven't really even recovered from Christmas yet!
But if it's good enough for merchandisers to be preparing for Easter then it's a good enough excuse for me to start Easter crafting! So, given our summer is so wet, rainy and dismal at the moment, I took a few hours today to indulge in some guilt free crafting time (after the housework was all done and washing folded and put away of course!).
It was also a good excuse to use some of my beautiful Easter images from Pion Design. I decided to create a tryptych card today, and I thought I'd share it with you...click the pics below to get a closer view.
Bazzill Card stock
Girls Paperie paper

Stick from the garden
Pink feather fluff
Seam binding that I hand dyed myself
Watch face (one of many that my generous manufacturing jeweller gave to me)
Tea Dye Distress Ink (lots of!)
If you haven't checked out the incredible vintage styled papers from Pion Design (Swedish for Peony which also happens to be my all time favourite flower - alas it's too warm to grow them here in Auckland) then click the link above to view their blog and spend some time browsing through some vintage goodness.
Happy New Year to you all.
