r.Bottom := 105;
form1.canvas.FrameRect(r);
form1.canvas.Ellipse(10,10,100,100);
form1.Canvas.Brush.Color := clYellow;

with form1.canvas do
 begin
  Brush.Color := clYellow;
  Brush.Style := bsDiagCross;
  Ellipse(0,0,210,350);
  MoveTo(13,90);
  Lineto(210,210);
  MoveTo(6,120);
  Lineto(206,240);
  Brush.Color := clBlue;
  Brush.Style := bsSolid;
  FloodFill(14,94,ClBlack,fsBorder);
  Brush.Style := bsClear;
  Font.Size:=12;
  TextOut(220,0,'HAPPY EASTER!!');
 end;


Good luck!!
