Verve Week 1 for April

Hey there...I hope your Easter long weekend is going along nicely.

Today DH and I headed inland to a sweet little gift shop/cafe in a tiny town called Tyalgum....had a beautiful lunch and snapped a few pics to share with you.....

Here's the quiet main street....

...bananas for only 60c each at the farmer's roadside stalls on the drive out to Tyalgum....beats the $12.99 a kilo Woolies had them at a week ago.....now I can have a banana on my muesli again this week....I've been missing them dreadfully since Cyclone Yasi wiped out our FNQ banana crops:-(

Well, it's high time I got around to my card for today I'm sure you're thinking lol.

I played for a while last night and caught up on 3 of the Verve Sketches for this month...here's Sketch #1 and my card....

Butterfly Garden Cards

Butterfly Garden love narrow
 
I had lots of fun recently playing with the scrumptious Butterfly Garden products from Pink Paislee. Must admit as soon as I saw these out there in blogland I had to get my hands on them. The soft, muted colours, stunning vintage stamps, pretty butterflies, text papers....and so much more, had me at "hello" :-))

Butterfly Garden love

Butterfly Garden thank youclose up

Butterfly Garden thank you

Do you have any fun Easter long weekend plans?

We do.....eat chocolate, relax and eat more chocolate:-) Oh maybe a walk on the beach if it's fine....some fishing if the weather permits.......some crafting no matter what the weather :-))......and also a trip up the Sunny Coast to see family is the go for us.......should be lovely.

Hope yours is too!

I'm off to attack one of this week's challenges....be back with more to share soon:-)
