Easter + birthdaycard

A birthdaycard

I had a very nice easter this year with lots of sunshine and I hope you did too!

My aunt and her husband have their birthdays close to one and other so this year we celebrated them on easter eve with family and friends.

This is the card I made for them.

I had a hard time figuring out what to do so in the end I went with the fact that my aunt collects egg cups, they go to masquerades at times and... well it was easter! ;)

Thanks for looking!

Ellie painting done + progress pictures

Just like the oh so amazing title say, this is Ellie. ;)
She is one of the naive folk-art inspired little girls that where on my desk a few weeks ago.
I finished her and another girl that I have named Viktualia last week. So this means that I actually have reached my goal of finishing two girls. Yay for me!

I thought I would show you Viktualia in a few days with progress pictures too, but until then you get to see Ellie.

And this is the photographed version with glitter.

Some new pixies

Don't have so much to say today... I'm sick again so haven't got much done this week but I did manage to finish the red haired pixie and started on four new magnet (or they might be turned into brooches). The blond pixie is a ACEO that I did a couple of weeks ago that I will be adding to my shop once I have taken some photos of it.

The girls that where on my desk last time have gotten some more colors on them. I'm far from finished tho but I hope that I feel better tomorrow so that I can continue painting them.

Thanks for looking!
