With only 3 more weeks before Easter, it’s time to ramp up the Easter card making. Some cards for Easter are whimsical and cute – showing images of adorable bunnies, and cute little chicks, but then there is the serious side of Easter – the real reason we celebrate this advent of spring; the resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ. I always make a few more serious Easter cards, for a few family members who really appreciate the mystery of this observance.
I created this card for my in-laws, using one of my favorite Easter sets from Gina K Designs – Easter Blessings. I layered the stamped image onto layers of floral prints by Dover Craft and embellished with Zva Creative pearls and flowers.
Waltzingmouse Stamps Customer Blog Hop
I just wanted to remind you all that Wednesday is St. Patrick’s Day, and if that wasn’t enough cause for celebration, Waltzingmouse Stamps is hosting another customer blog hop on the brand new Forum on St Patrick's Day. We would love for friends of WMS to get out their stamps and show us some green!! Claire has supplied some free digital images for folks who don't have WMS stamps and want to join in the blog hop. The free Digital images can be got by clicking here.
Now here's the plan: You have from now until next Wednesday to make a card or project for the hop. Write up your blog post, but don't publish it yet!!! You can snag the blog hop logo above to help identify your post if you like. (drag it to your desktop, Mac users or right click for PC folk) Visit the Forum and register, if you haven’t do so already, so you'll be able to post your link on the 17th. Then, sit back and enjoy the ride. To get all the details, visit Claire’s blog.
And now for the Blog Candy winners
Thank you so much for all the great comments about my card and for the sweet comments about poor Molly Stamps’ demise.
