Happy Easter!

Tom has just finished his last final for his first quarter of school and I have just wrapped up another work week. Spring is in the air and so is the pollen but the flowers and trees are so pretty! We wanted to wish you a Happy Easter and are looking forward to going to a family feast and egg hunt.

SPCC Challenge

I am all about the challenges lately! I checked my e-mail tonight and noticed this challenge loved the color combo! I remembered that I had this scrap of patterned "Friendship" paper in my stash, and some chocolate and pumpkin felt flowers in my flower drawer, so all I did was plunder in my brown ribbon drawer (y'all KNOW I'm the QUEEN of brown ribbon) and BAM! I could not get a great photo of the card...out of 15 photos, this was the best one. I added the pink flower at the end as I really prefer a grouping of 3 flowers when I cluster them. After I finished the card, I went back to the challenge to download the challenge photo and realized that it was a similar layout of Shauna's, but I really liked this card and hardly ever do what I call "long-card designs", so I decided to post it. Of course the card is SU's Pumpkin Pie (LOVE THIS COLOR), I believe the patterned paper if from Die Cuts With a View (it's 2 or 3 years old now and is the last of the 12X12 sheet), the felt flowers are from American Crafts (a HUGE Big Lots find of a whole $2 for a container FULL!), the pink daisy flower is from Making Memories, the bling is from Michaels, and the ribbon is from Hobby Lobby. Thanks for looking! I'm off to eat a piece of carrot cake and watch Dancing With the guilty pleasure!

SPCC Blog Hop Challenge

Here is my latest challenge entry. I hopped around each blog in the challenge and found some cute stuff, but when I saw the color combo, I decided to use the butterfly stamp I just bought. I purchased the egg stamp from A Muse Artstamps awhile ago, and found the butterfly and Easter sentiment in the $1 bin at Michaels! I have yet again found a use for my Martha Stewart grass punch...I think I'll use it all year long as it is so versatile! Thanks for looking!

Easter "Baskets"

Our stamp club meets at an assisted living residence once a month. We decided to make something handmade for the residents to enjoy. Everyone received the same template in different pastel colors and will decorate them in their "style". Here is my interpretation!
