Easter Blessings

What a wonderful day and the sun is even shining here in western Washington.  We are planning our annual egg hunt in the cul de sac and brunch tomorrow.  The kids have so much fun. Should be around 18 kids participating this year.  I've stuffed hundreds of plastic eggs with candy, money and rocks.  I don't know who has more fun, the kids are me!

I brought this card to our monthly American Ink Demonstrator's March gathering for our make and take.  I really like the Easter Blessings stamp which is on page 24 of the Spring Catalog.  I embossed it with the Vintage Wallpaper folder which always adds class to any card.  The egg is cut from the Oval Framelits Collection and the stamps came from the Bright Blossoms stamp set. I used Primrose Petals and Gumball Green on the flowers.  It's a plain and simple card, but looks elegant.

Happy St. Patrick's Day

This is my time to celebrate since my maiden name is Connolly, even though I look terrible in green!  I had fun making my card.  I started off with a base of Certainly Celery embossed with the Stripes folder.  The Shamrock was punched from the large heart and embossed with the Swiss Dots folder and a large pearl in the center.  I used Lucky Limeade Sunshine & Sprinkles DSP to accent the card and stamped it with Teeny Tiny Wishes.  I love that stamp set.  Punching out the bottom of the card using the Big Shot and Adorning Accents Edgelits finished up the card nicely.
