Happy Easter

Happy Easter to everyone!  Today is a beautiful day here in Virgiinia -- sun is shinning and it is suppose to get to 85 degrees.  A great Easter Sunday!  The bunny is from Sparklensprinkle and I paper pieced her dress.  The pattern paper is Basic Grey.  The yellow, avacado, light blue and white cardstock is all from Papertrey Ink.  I used Prismacolor pencils with Gamsol plus Copic markers to color everything!  Enjoy your day!

Springtime bunnies

Aren't these bunnies just the cutest??  When Flourishes came out with this set I just had to have it!  I don't buy as many stamps as I use to but this set caught my heart strings!  I colored the bunnies with a combination of pencils and Copic markers.  I then cut them out with this beautiful die that I have had for sometime using my Grand Caliber machine from Spellbinders.  The designer paper is by Prima.  You will be seeing more of these cards using this stamp set from Flourishes.  Hope you enjoy!

Migrating butterflies

Hey everyone!  Here in Virgnia today it is cloudy, rainy, thunderstorms, etc. so a good day to "play" in my craft room.  I am doing a craft show at the Earlysville Fire Department this Sat. and am trying to finish up a little boy baby album!  These baby things are so sweet and I can envision all of the cute smiley pictures that will go into the albums!  I'm a sucker for babies!!  Anyway, the card above is a very simple card.  I got a coupld of new embossing folders from  I believe these folders are bySizzix.  I embossed the buttefly folder with so saffron cardstock from Stampin Up and then  loaded my brayer with Chocolate Ink from Papertrey Ink and lightly brayered the chocolate onto the raised area.  I used a new stamp I had bought by Inkadinkado and stamped the sentiment in Chocolate.  I added some dark brown pearls, wrapped chocolate and yellow ribbon around it and then attached it to a chocolate card.  Easy peasy!

Kindness is appreciated

Morning everyone!  Spring weather is here!  Yea.  Why don't you go and visit and see a couple of lovely thank you cards.  The above one of mine is featured ont their blog and you will also see the stamp set that has ALL kinds of thanks. I just love these sets that have all of the matched sentiments in one set!  So easy to reach for different ones when doing a batch of cards and you  can have a different sentiment on each card.  Plus they are all in one place!!   I did a vintage look with my "thanks" using ribbon, lace, distressing, flowers, etc.  I want to thank everyone for their comments and I read everyone!

April contest at SNS

What a beautiful sunny day here in Virginia but we are suppose to have thunderstorms, etc. tonight but for today it is going to be gorgeous! I have two beautiful cards to share with you today!  Sparkle N Sprinkle is having an April contest (and you could win prizes) regarding "Remarkable Women".  All of us have some of those remarkable women in our lives -- mothers, grandmothers, friends, sisters, daughters, aunts -- you get the picture!  Why not enter the contest at and try to win a prize?!  These same two cards are up on their blog so please be sure to visit and leave comments and then play!!
Isn't this a beautiful saying for a grandmother?  The sentiment and the cup is embossed in antiquities gold and looks very fragile and old.

Do these cards make you want to try to win a prize?!  Have a beautiful dary!
