Easter cards – made with love…

This is my 101st blog post, so by rights it should include some dalmatians, but it doesn’t. It’s more about rabbits.

When I get that rare luxury called ‘free time’ I love to read, but if I have more free time than time to just read, I do like to make handmade cards, but this is quite rare these days with more commissions and so many other concerns and worries that the world seems to be throwing at us all at the moment!Eastercardsby Michael Quinlyn-NixonforblogHowever, putting the world issues to one side, I recently found these handmade cards that my youngest niece, Cora and myself made a few years ago, before my middle sister and her family moved to California. Most Saturdays my sister and my two nieces would come over for a cup of tea and a piece of cake and Cora and I would either play Cluedo (my very favourite board game) or make cards.

Cora has a natural talent for card making and crafts and together we fashioned some cardboard templates and found some nice gingham paper backgrounds and things that would be suitable for Easter cards and we got to work. Quite quickly we could produce a good few cards and then put on the wording and the features of the rabbits’ and chicks’ faces.

Easter is my favourite time of year and although this Easter has been anything but usual or expected, I have still found time to enjoy this special time of year and the odd one or two pieces of chocolate eggs.

There’s nothing like an Easter egg, unless of course you can have two…

  1. You are an amazing illustrator and feel so happy we have been friends for so long x
    You are a very lovely funny person who is humble and really do not know how talented you are ♥️

    • Thank you, Sara, that is lovely. We have known each other for many years now, since those days at the Cumbrian Gazette. I am working on an illustration now as I type and you have given me that last bit of zeal and encouragement I need to get it finished (thankfully). Thank you and take care. Stay safe, Sara. M x
