```~~~ Easter ~~~```

Hello everyone
Rainy Easter weekend for us, a bit milder out though making the lawns green up.
I walked along the lake shore this week and noticed the boats are
starting to come ...a sure sign of Spring.
I also noticed the pair of Red Neck Grebe are back.
 Everyone is anxious for them to have babies ~ the past two years the water
has been too high and their nest has been submerged...sigh!

..on to my post.  I've an Easter card for you today that I made several weeks ago.
It features an image and sentiment from Mo's Digital Pencil.

Coloured with Copics
Die cuts are Memory Box
Ribbon from Stamp Simply Ribbon Store
Sparkle paper - the $ Store

I've another picture for you..this features the single Mute Swan that resides
at the marina...(there are others but this guy is alone)   
Not sure what happened to it's mate but it makes me sad to think of it.
The rest of the flock always swim in a group.  So elegant to watch them diving and skimming along.
There were cygnets for us to watch last summer. Swans are wonderful parents.

~~ Christmas Skate ~~

Hi everyone,
Hope this finds you well.
It's the 3rd Wednesday of the Month and that means it's time
for some Christmas inspiration, this time from the Funky girls at

Fab'n'Funky Challenge #436

We are hosted by the lovely Susan

As always a Top 3 will be chosen.  

I received some new craft goodies recently and couldn't wait
to create with them.  Love the Memory Box stamps and matching dies.
They are simple and fun to work with.   I never duplicate or mass produce my creations
but I can see how easy it would be using these sets.

Here is Memory Box "Be Jolly" stamp, coloured and cut out
using the coordinating die.

StampinUp Night of Navy papers, MB Fresh Pine Curved Border die.
and Spellbinder curved Border Two die.  Frame is MB, ribbon from my stash. 
StampinUp embossing folder Softly Falling used for some texture.
