Happy Easter!

what a beautiful day it has turned out to be here in Yorkshire...completely the opposite to what the weather man said!!
Just had a trip to the garden centre to get some plants in ready for planting out once we have finished with the frosts.
Yesterday I sat in my workroom for most of the afternoon just playing with stamps and card and generally having a fun time!

I made this sweet little cup as a try out from an old template I found in my box - not sure where it came from, but had to adapt it as for some reason it wouldn't fit together properly, so I rescored the lines and made the base abit bigger and finally, it worked!

so here is my attempt....

I used Lavender Lace CS and some strips of paper from my stash, inked the edges and scallop edged them, and then punched some little flowers out and added them to each panel. Added some purple gems to the centre of each one, and faux stitched round them .
Going to have a go next stamping on the card to see how that works!
Looking at this cup has made me thirsty so off to make a 'real' cuppa!
