Back Again!

Hi, everyone!

I know it looks like I haven't been doing anything all week, but the truth is, I've been making a lot of cards. Unfortunately, they were all for posting on my other blogs so I can't share them with you yet.  I do have an Easter card & a birthday card to share today.

This Easter card is a pretty quick one to make.  There isn't much coloring on the rabbit stamp from Whipper Snappers & I love his face & floppy ears.  I grabbed an old Happy Easter border stamp from Hero Arts and added that to the band under him.  The matting was done with Spellbinder dies & the carrots were from a packet I got at Michaels last year.  The paper is Recollections.

 The birthday card actually started out to be an Easter basket!  But then when I looked at my calendar & realized I needed a birthday card for the 9th, I turned it into a basket of birthday flowers.  The inside sentiment says "May your day bloom with wonderful surprises!"  The flowers were created with Cheery Lynn's miniature rose die. The basket is from Memory Box & the bow is from Memory Box as well.
I know I'm going to have fun making this into an Easter card next!  Already have the chocolate bunnies cut out & ready for the basket!

I'll be back tomorrow, of course, with QKR Stampede's Friday challenge.  I have a feeling I will have a lot of time to make cards tomorrow as the weather is not sounding too springlike!  We are getting light rain now which is to continue & get heavier this afternoon, turning to heavy wet snow tonite (2-4 inches unless the system moves & we get 5-6).  Since we have had relatively no snow all winter, I know I shouldn't complain, but gee, Mother Nature, it's April and spring is supposed to be arriving now!!!  I had to get the snow blower back out yesterday & sit it close to the garage door so I could get to it.  That's not something I normally have to do once I have already put out my spring yard flags! Boooo!!!  This year is going to be remembered as the year that winter was ENDLESS!!!

Enjoy your day!


  1. Both cards are wonderful, but that second one is over the top drop dead gorgeous! Holy Moly!

  2. Your little bunny has the cutest expression and I love the little carrot embellishment. The basket with flowers is very elegant. The die cut frame is phenomenal.
