Easter picnic

I hope everyone had a lovely Easter weekend! Anyone else happy not to eat chocolate for a few days??!!

This is the card and little gift I gave to my dear dad for Easter. He's not a big chocolate fan so I bought some spiced nuts and packaged them up with a card to match. These seem to be my go-to male colours - Cream, Bashful Blue and Chocolate Chip.

The stamp is a Lockhart image, coloured with Copics - for the bag I cut him out and used him as a tag. Background paper on the card is Kraft paper from the Level 1 hostess 6 x 6 paper pack.

Yesterday (which was a Bank Holiday here in the UK) my best friend Ashley, her husband and their beautiful baby girl came to visit - Ashley and I shared a house at university, then lived together in London for years. Now we live 5 hours away from each other so time together is very precious!

Thankfully we had a glorious sunny day so we went out and had lovely picnic - I love this picture Ashley took of me and Sophie!!

Hope everyone has a great week, thanks for visiting!

Hi Kate,
your cards are always so elegant. Love the layout and the colours - I will add this colour combo to my "to try " list. The card and nut box made a really thoughtful present for you Dad. I can imagine my liking that too.
