A very 'Hoppy Easter' to you all......


Afternoon friends!
Just wanted to wish you all a very Hoppy Easter and my card for this week's Just Magnolia Challenge fits in perfectly!
The girls over on the team have asked us to create a card with at least two folds for the special monthly challenge, so I decided to create a stairfold card..... these are sooooo much fun to make and you can add lots of stamping!

I used lots of images from the Magnolia Easter collection and papers from Kay&Co and Papermania. I picked up the giant tree stamp from the Magnolia stand at the NEC, isn't it gorgeous? I also cut some grass with a QuicKutz die and used my new MS fence punch which was a birthday pressie from my fab friend Heather ;o) I created the 'Hoppy Easter' sentiment on my PC.
I really enjoyed creating this card and will be making more like this for sure! The DT at JM have created some amazing examples of cards with multiple folds so do check out their creations for some inspiration..... makes you think outside the box a bit ;o)

Well enjoy the rest of your chocolate-filled weekend folks and thanks for stopping by for a visit ;o)

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xx

Absolutely gorgeous T and all the elements look fantastic on the step design. The tree is gorgeous, another one for my wish list LOL, and your colouring and grass and fence are superb. Hope you didn't eat too much choc, I wasn't too bad but anything left lying around has been eaten by me :D. Love Chris xx
