I have an Easter card for you all too (which is also just right for some challenges!)
I have used some of my 'nice' paper for this card and one of Donna Gray's new That's Crafty sets featuring Freddy the cat! As you can see Freddy is out in the garden today and he has lost the mouse he was chasing amongst the (freebie) daffodils! I coloured everything with my Promarkers. A lot of masking and fussy cutting going on here but isn't Freddy adorable?

Another 'thing' is that at last the sun has been shining and we have managed a couple of walks!
Yesterday we went for a walk along by the River Mersey which is quite near to where we live.
We hadn't intended walking so far, but it was so nice that we headed in a different direction than usual! Hubby had already done this walk last year and kept assuring me that there was a bridge 'just around the bend' - he didn't say which bend and before we knew it we had walked over 3 miles!
We came across a part of the river with waves on it - which may have been caused by a change in the tide - any ideas anyone?
We finally reached the bridge - we took a short cut up quite a steep bank and found ourselves on a path by the bus lane!
We were on the home straight and passed a familiar landmark!
This little garden is by a path that leads to the road home!
Our walk today was lovely too! We went to Dunham Massey and it leads me to Bluebeard and Elizabeth's for T Stands For Tuesday!
You may remember the last visit here was for the Winter Garden at night
I love how they are using this old drawer set to grow IrisesThis was one of quite a few bees - so lovely to see them!
The volunteers were getting moss out of the flower beds.
The Orangery is a lovely calm space
The last two shots are hubby's - he walked over to the lake while I was looking in the Orangery and the miniature daffodils were by the gate on the way out and I had put my phone away already!
You can see hubby's tea but I forgot to move my coffee over, his choice of cake was a fruit and yogurt slice while I had a fruit scone! The cafe was very busy and we could only find a table in the shade outside!
Oh! and one more thing, I was going to show more of my Gelli prints but I think you will have been here quite long enough, so I will make a separate post tomorrow!
Thanks for dropping by, I hope to be along a little earlier than I got to some of you last week! Chris
