Challenge #9 Easter

Hello Vintage Friends & Followers,
1st of March today...where does time go?
At least for us living in the Northern Hemisphere this means that we're heading towards Spring. :-)
A certain Sign of Spring is Easter, and as it's falling early this year, already at the end of March, our theme for the March challenge is Easter.

Before bringing you some gorgeous inspiration from the LLC DT and our GDTs, we have the randomly drawn winner and the recepient of the £25 LLC Store Voucher from the February challenge to announce:


It's No.48 Debbie S, with this lovely take on Tina's sketch:
