Easter cards

Good morning everyone, I hope all is well with you and yours...hugs.
I haven't looked outside yet to see what it's like out there! Yesterday it was freezing fog to start with then the sun came out and it was a glorious day :o)
I had a wonderful day on Monday, an extension to my birthday. Off I went to visit Docrafter friend Mol, she and her hubby Mick entertained and fed me right royally. We went to Once Upon a Stamp at Pleasley Village and I spent, spent, spent :o) I bought 4 x Grand Nestie sets, an A4 Mbossability folder and several A4 magnetic sheets to store them on. Sorry I can't show you pics, I forgot to photograph them before I threw away the packaging!
Anyhow, on to my cards for today :o)


 This one is so simple, I just printed my own photograph onto Papermania Textured card and added the greeting in Word using my favourite Dauphin font, then folded and cut to A6.


Another quite simple card again using my own photograph also printed onto Papermania textured card, and cut with Marianne die. The frame, also a Marianne die, is cut from gold mirri card although it looks bronze here, as is the Spellbinder's cross. The base card, also Papermania textured card, was folded and cut into 6x6 
Now I have to get blogging and catchup on your gorgeous uploads whilst I have been enjoying myself :o)
