Winners Post for Challenge # 23: Make something for Easter

I am very late for our regular post of winners (sorry)
for

Make something for Easter 
it could be a card or it could be a scrap book layout, Easter basket, anything.....

I have a house full of grandchildren, and their parents  and life just gets away. So lovely to see them all, all the same

Now, we have two really generous sponsors for this challenge - so here are the two winners chosen by Hilde


The winner is:   # 70 Jane Savage 
 I love all the details of the baskets and the Daffodils, the cute Meljens image, a perfect Easter creation 

and Bugaboo
The winner is: # 63 Jennifer Scull
This beautiful elegant and colourful card depicts why we  celebrate Easter, just lovely
TOP THREE
These are chosen by Ina today - her last job on the team as she is leaving us to concentrate on the family - we will miss her a great deal!

My Goodness - what a task. Hilde 'pinched' one of my picks but there were so many others I had to go to and fro to only pick 3.

An absolutely gorgeous box that I would love to have filled with chocolates on my dining room table for me to indulge in over Easter. A beautiful piece of work and in my favourite colours.
 I loved all the embellishments added to this beautiful card. The layout is fabulous and the soft colours so pretty. The attention to detail is superb.
Again the attention to detail caught my eye. Beautifully laid out in gorgeous bright colours perfect for Spring. So pleasing to the eye.

I also give a Highly Commended to #5 - Leanne. 
Her card was such a lovely cas one, showing us the true meaning of Easter and the bling just finished it of beautifully.


We hope every one had a great Easter break and enjoyed the festivities and the reason for the season!  I hope the Easter Bunny left a lot of chocolate behind him  - I know we are currently feeling the effects of chocolate overload at our house but that is all part of it, isn't it. Well, now moving on to our current challenge
