Easter Blessings – Thinking of You

I made this card from  a retired Stampin' Up! stamp set,  however, you can substitute any outline flower stamp. I love the colors and simplicity of this card.

February Paper Pumpkin Critter Basket

Here's  another idea for February's Layers of Gratitude Paper Pumpkin kit.  Treat Holders for Easter goodies!  One box will make one treat holder.  The first one was made with a punch art bunny:

Balloon Bash Birthday and a Happy Easter Bunny

During March we made the two cards below for my workshops.  First is the Balloon Bash card, everyone liked this quick and easy card:

The second card was an Easter card using the Happy Easter Bunny stamp from Stampin' Up!'s Occasion's catalog.  If you like to color this is a favorite.  Everyone used either Stampin' Write Markers or Blendabilities (yes, I know Blendabilitie are no longer available 🙁 , however, you can get the same effect with reinkers and the aqua painter or blender pens).

I cased this bunny from a Punch Art swap at convention and turned it into a card.  The original punch art was made by LeAnn Lansdell. And in case you missed my previous post, here is a scrapbook page I created  with the same punch art bunny:

What do you do at 4am when you can't sleep? I am writing a blog post! And why am ! awake at 4am, well… I thought I heard a mouse in the house. I know there is at least one out in the eaves as we have caught a couple, six to be exact, so I am waiting to see if there are any more. Well I woke up around 3am with the wind howling and thought I heard a mouse in the eaves, maybe it was nothing, but I was still trying to figure out if I heard a mouse or not at 4am, so I decided I could be more productive downstairs at my computer. I have now uploaded my pictures from this weekend's Stampin' Up! events and resized them for my blog.

On Saturday I was one of the vendors for a fundraiser at Erskine Academy to benefit the Senior class. Below is a picture of some of the participants, there were approximately 60 people working on their scrapbooks and cards.

This is one of the Make N Takes participants could make.  Everyone loved the Easter page, especially the bunny.  Isn't she adorable?  I was in a Punch Art swap at Stampin' Up!'s 2013 Convention last summer and this bunny was one of the swaps.  It was created by LeAnn Lansdell. You just want to pick it up and hold it!

One of my customers came back to my table shortly after finishing the page and showed me the page complete with pictures.  It was as if i had designed the page for those photos!  Her grandson has the same colors for his clothing as I used for the page. In one photo he is wearing Coastal Cabana and in the other his shirt is pink and his vest has pink and black in it.  It was perfect…check out the photo below.

Last month I had a class making a Card in a Box card.  My customer Celina was at this fundraiser with some friends and showed them how to make the Card in a Box from my class. All I can say is their creations were beautiful.  I did get a picture of one of them which was a get well card for a friend:

Wished I had remembered to take a picture of Kelly's as it was a birthday card for her husband and it was gorgeous.
