Have a Blessed Easter

This was a card we made this month at Stamp class.  How fun to use orange as a color on an Easter card.  I would have never thought to use that color.

Love the cloud embossing folder and the little butterfly punch from S. U.

We plan on just playing it low key, having a ham dinner and just spending time with family.

Hope your day is extra special!!

Fun Bunny Cards


This is adapted from a card that I saw online here.  I didn't have all the necessary punches so had to improvise.  Since making these cards, I have seen so many other versions.....all adorable and I would have done them differently if I had seen those first.

The first photo is the front of the card.  The Polka dotted paper is from Amuse.  I order mine from a friend that demonstrates for the company.  I fell in love with their polka dotted card stock.  It is card stock, not designer paper.  The inside of the card stock is white, so you can use it as a card.  In this instance, I used it as designer paper :-)
The second photo is the inside of the card.  Since then, I have attached feet to the card.    It looks a lot cuter with feet.  I had already taken these photos before I decided to add the feet.
Here is another card that a friend did....where I got the idea for the feet.
This card was made by Barbra Byrnes, a friend of mine, and I liked her Bunny much better....but had already made all my cards when I saw this one.   Check out her blog to see some other great cards she has created.

If you don't have time to make these for this Easter, there is always next year.
They are so much fun!!!

Have a great day!!!

Wow, 10 cards all at once

Well, it just goes to show you that we never know what is going to happen and that having things scheduled helps IF you schedule them way ahead of time.  Usually I do have at least a couple of weeks of cards scheduled ahead but this time, I was at the end of that couple of weeks and hadn't gotten around to posting more cards.

I got a call on February 17th that a friend died and I flew out the next day to Arizona.  I had previously scheduled posts to automatically post till that Friday (not knowing then that I would be leaving) and was going to upload some more cards that Friday, but it wasn't to be.

I was gone 2 1/2 weeks and when I got home, I wasn't in the stamping mood at all.

BUT, I attended a stamp class a week or so after getting home and got my mojo back and I will be sharing the cards I have made since coming home.

I want to thank my friend, Jenny, for attending class the Saturday I was gone, in February, and making my cards for me!  What a huge blessing that was to me!!

Here are the 10 cards that she made.  That meant, she had to make 20 cards in two hours.    Normally, I wouldn't post 10 cards in one post but since I didn't actually make these, I felt that she should get the credit all at once!!

Aren't they wonderful???

















Have a great day!!!
