Easter Monday

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter!  We enjoyed a wonderful service and some family time with my in-laws on Easter Sunday. 

I had meant to post this card last Friday but I simply forgot in the busyness to get things ready for a quickie trip we planned with the boys for Fri & Sat.   I thought I'd go ahead and show it anyway.  This was actually a card I made last year and had a couple left over to use this year for Easter.  It's a direct case from Teneale Williams.  Her cards are simply beautiful and I love her style.   You can see her original here.


Everything is from SU! except for the sentiment which was typed on the computer. 
Stamps:  Easter Blossoms, Looks Like Spring (diamond pattern stamp)
Paper:  very vanilla, baja breeze, pear pizzazz
Ink:  crumb cake, baja breeze, pear pizzazz, regal rose and versamark
Accessories:  vanilla seam binding, scallop border punch, pearls, 2-way glue pen and dazzling diamonds glitter

Here's a look at the inside of the card:

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great Monday!

Spring Chick

I saw this very cute chick card by Nicole Heady and decided to replicate it using a stamp set I had that is just a little bit similar to hers.  At least the chick part anyway.  My chick comes from SU!'s A Good Egg set and the little roses are from SU!'s Everyday Celebrations set.

Sentiment is a little too close to the button but I had already cut it out and decided I didn't want to waste so went with it.  Cute little card that didn't take long to put together. 

Supplies used are PTI's white, SU! daffodil delight dsp, pool party dsp, crumb cake cardstock that was trimmed with the scallop border.  Ink is daffodil delight, black stazon, pumpkin pie (for the beak) and white craft for the flowers.  A snippet of pool party seam binding and a yellow button with strip of pool party cs for "thread".  I typed the sentiment using Albemarle Swash font on the computer. 

We had a really nice weekend but our allergies are in full swing.  Itchy eyes and noses, sneezing and drainage are our companions right now.  I really like Spring but not all the pollen that comes with it.  Hopefully it won't be too long before we are all feeling better. 

Happy Monday!
