Easter and Spring

Looking for My Online Store

Click Go Shopping!


Spring is here and that means there will soon be birds singing and flowers will start to add color to the world. For those of us who believe and celebrate the birth of Jesus, we also prepare to celebrate Easter to commemorate his resurrection.

We also have the Easter Egg hunt and the best decorated Easter Egg contest.  Just another holiday for families to remember, share stories and have fun bonding time with each other.  I say grab each second and savor the moment for the next one is not promised. 

Of course there has to be time to add a bit of crafting time in, and with crafting you can always find a way to follow the theme at hand.  This time its "Easter" and here is what I decided to create as part of my contribution to this season.

I decided to create one card around the arrival of Spring, so using lavender and white card-stock, some bling and an array of flowers I came up with this Easter card.

I do like how it turned out and I was very pleased that I was able to use my Creative Expression dies to create this.  This particular collection came with 6 pieces and the detail on each piece is just amazing.





I truly think I am going to have a lot of fun playing with these dies.


I can feel my imagination running wild and I'm anxious to start sketching and seeing what all I can get to fall out of these old gray cells of mine.

My second creation was more around Easter with the bunny and all.  This image is from Mo Manning and I think she is just a little darling. She was colored with a combo of Copic and Spectrum Noir markers.

The designer paper is Graphic 45 combined with standard card-stock from Hobby Lobby.

I added lace ribbon, a few flowers from WOC and a sentiment I typed out on my computer.


On the inside I used the remaining paper and added a blank space for a personal message.

The little strips of lavender was cut using a really old edger I had from MS, back when they were green.
