Sketch & Stash #32

These are the Easter cards I made my boys, following this fortnight's fab sketch at Sketch & Stash. Not very Easterish I know, but the idea is these are baby dinos that have just hatched from the (rather naff) eggs in the bottom left hand corner!
There isn't much to say about this. I used my new Greeting Farm stamp from Quixotic Paperie that I got a few weeks ago, but this is the first time it has seen ink. The DPs are some old Basic Grey papers, Skate Shoppe or Hang 10, I forget. I felt, with it being Spring, I was able to get away with flowers on a boy's card!

Ben & Jack are mad for dinosaurs. As I write this, Jack is currently excavating a dinosaur skeleton he got at his birthday party earlier today. He turns seven on Wednesday, but announced a while ago that he wants to be a paleontologist when he grows up!
I have to apologise for the fact I have not done much commenting of late. I have been stalking & quietly admiring lots of wonderful creations. But I have been very busy with Easter & working up to Jack's party this afternoon. Fortunately, Jack friends are nice & well behaved so it was not as bad as I had feared! I'm glad it's over for another year nonetheless!! Anyway, I hope to do a bit of catching up this evening.
I hope everyone is happy & well, & having a great weekend.
Big Hugs,
Andie xx

The cards are just gorgeous Andie, bet the boys loved them. Always dreaded parties too, especially if they were at home lol. We opted for family teaparties for our kids.
