  1. Hi Pauline

    I hope you are well.

    I need to get a few Easter cards done too!! Never a dull moment here LOL!!

    Loving your cute rabbits and how you have done the letters.

    Sorry for being a bit of a stranger. Busy old world here at the moment!

    Have a good day.

    Love Jules xx

  3. A great Easter card Pauline and the lettering across the top is really effective.

    To answer your question about what I use for my punched flowers, I find Bazzil works really well and shapes well, lots of the better quality DP's are OK, if using plain paper then I find a min of 120gsm best as the punched don't like the flimsier ones.
