Thursday I used all cool colors for the Thursday challenge but today I'm changing it up to all warm colors.
The bunny die is from Elizabeth Craft Designs. The corners are an old punch that I still have, I'm not sure of the maker. The stitched ovals are from My Favorite Things.
I really love the woven plaid stamp, I think you know that by now...I use it probably 1/3 of the time. I love finding new combo colors to use. I use the stamp that came already separated by our lovely ladies at DRS. It makes it so much easier to change up the colors. These Jelly Beans make a great background too and I change the colors to go with whatever my color scheme is.
Easter is a very special time with lots of special memories for me. My family (including aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents, etc.) always went on a potluck lunch picnic at the park after Sunday services. We kids (sisters and cousins) would have Easter egg hunts and eat our candy till we were sick! We would join the adults in some Three Outs baseball (since we didn't have 18 people who could play). We had so much fun!! Loads of food, family and candy...what could be better? Oh, and we four sisters always got new frilly Easter dresses, hats, purses, shoes, gloves...yes, my mother LOVED fashion. I am pretty sure she made a lot of our clothes because we usually had matching outfits!
Thanks for visiting!

Happy Friday!I hope your week has gone well! It's not too soon to start your Easter cards...Easter comes early this year..March 27th. To make my Easter card, I put the Stained Glass Oval image into my Misti then stamped the image w/ Memento desert sand. I knew I wanted to gold emboss it but since I also wanted to color it w/ Copics & the two don't play well together, so it was stamped first w/ an ink color that would allow me to see the lines but also disappear when embossed.
After coloring it, I over stamped it w/ gold pigment ink then heat embossed it w/ gold powder. I die cut a piece of lilac card stock & a larger piece of sage green then cut the ovals out of the centers. The Happy Easter Cross was stamped, colored & I cut around the top to let more of the stained glass show through then attached it behind the oval frames & then on top of the stained glass background.
Here are the Copics I used.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend.

With my crazy schedule this week, I am feeling very CAS. Between work, Bunco being at my house, and a Scrapbook Retreat this weekend, everything has to be easy.
I stamped the new Tall Shamrocks and fussy cut them out. Next I stamped the new Tiny St. Pats Day stamp and the new Shamrocks and Shenanigans stamp and cut them up so I could use parts of both to make the sentiment.
I sponged the shamrocks with Distress Ink and added a little middle dot with Liquid Pearls.
This card would work perfectly for the Lucky Charms challenge - it ends today so if you want to play too get your card in soon.

I had a few scraps and pieces of neon green paper in my stash, so I thought I would use them up on my St. Patrick's Day card for today's post. While I associate Kelly green with all things Irish, this bright green seemed like it would make a cheerful, sunny card :) It also gave me the chance to use my neglected Color Box Lime green ink pad on my background that I made using the Small Shamrock Group.
I broke out my Woven Plaid background stamp and used that for my accent piece, which I die cut and layered using my Rectangle dies.
After I stamped the Blessings Outnumber Greeting, it was also die cut and matted, and I added the same background shamrocks stamped in grey ink. Before I adheared it to the card base with foam tape, I did a bit of sponging with the same lime green ink.
Thanks for visiting and you can check out our latest challenge right here! Hope to see you there :)

Hi Everyone. My card today features our new Rainbow Gold Greeting. As soon as I saw this greeting I knew I wanted a rainbow to go with. I decided to try and create one using a SU border die. I die cut the border in rainbow colors, then cut off the ends so only the curved part remained. After attaching the curves to some white CS, I cut away the excess white so only the rainbow remained. The blue panel was embossed with a CS swirl folder after stamping the greeting with VersaFine Onyx Black ink. The rainbow was attached with foam squares and then I added some sequins around the greeting to represent the gold. This was a fun card to create.
Have you checked out this week's challenge: Lucky Charms? You still have time to join the fun. You can see details here.
Thanks for stopping by,

Hi all, this passed week has been very spring like but at last winter has returned and there saying we might get a dusting of snow on Monday.
So I thought I would share a Easter card to give all of you trapped in the cold dark winter something to look forward to.
This little Cute Bunny with Egg is so adorable.
I stamp him then covered him with a mask and stamped the Splatter Background
with Sky blue and Lemon Yellow.
The little Bunny was colored with Copic markers.
For the tag across the top I stamped the
cut with a die then with it still in the die I sponged on the sky blue.
Have a wonderful day,
