Easter Wishes!

Happy Easter everyone! Thought I'd pop in for a quick post after spending a few days with my parents. I made my dad's favorite meatloaf for Easter dinner and everyone got a little Easter basket with yummy candies. My favorites were the caramel filled bunnies - yum!! Anyway - besides the Twofer Challenge cards here and here that included Easter cards, I made 5 other cards. First, a card for my friend Heather and her family - she assured me it arrived safely - yay!

Supplies: Paper - DCWV green A2 card; Neenah Classic Crest Solar White
Lawn Fawn plaid & watercolor
Dies - My Favorite Things Die-Namics Blueprints 13, 20 (retired) & clouds (retired)
Stamps - Your Next Stamp Hey Chickie; Sunny Studio A Good Egg
Other - foam tape; 3M washi tape; Copic Markers; Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink

I love the LF plaid papers and have them in many colors! Really like how they look with the crisp white scalloped mat. The little ceramic bunny and egg in the photo were made for me years ago by a friend; I bring them out every Easter along with a ceramic basket and more eggs - so sweet!

Now for the rest of my Easter cards - I squeezed them into one photo to save time. One of them was similar to the card I sent Heather but simpler without the scalloped layer.

Supplies: Paper - DCWV green  & lilac A2 cards; Neenah Classic Crest Solar White
Lawn Fawn plaid & watercolor; Stamp on It pre cut window card;
Dies - My Favorite Things Die-Namics Blueprints 13, 20 (retired) & clouds (retired)
Stamps - Your Next Stamp Hey Chickie; Sunny Studio A Good Egg
Other - foam tape; 3M washi tape; Copic Markers; Hero Arts green ink
Mermaid Lagoon & Wilted Violet Distress Inks; Hobby Lobby bunny sticker

I made the butterfly on the Spring card using more bits of the tulip die from my Twofer cards. Used a MFT butterfly body and put an orange backing on it. Just love the bunny sticker from Hobby Lobby - came in a set of 4 and I bought several. Didn't get anything made for Cards for Hospitalized Kids this year but I'll use some bunnies on CFHK cards next year. The Happy Easter and label on the bunny card are both ancient Hero Arts items, long retired.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll check back tomorrow when I share a card for the new Merry Monday Christmas Challenge! Meantime, don't eat too much Easter candy!!
