Happy Easter

Happy Tuesday,
I'm glad to be back again for another post. March has been great for me for card making. I've had a bit more time to get into my supplies to create some cards and now my stash of ready made cards is getting bigger. For today's post I created an Easter card. I wanted to use the retired Delicate Dots DSP that I've had for quite a while. I really like these soft colours for spring and for Easter. I'm participating in two challenges this time. I went to Hand Stamped Sentiments for HSS Challenge #111 - Easter and then I went to SU -Only Challenges #41 - Think Spring or Autumn.

Here's my card:

The details are:

CS: Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Whisper White
DSP: Delicate Dots
Stamp Sets: Create a Cupcake, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Certainly Celery
Embellishments: 5/8" So Saffron grosgrain ribbon (retired)
Tools: Cupcake Builder Punch

Have a great day!

Here's the sketch:

I recently acquired both the Fresh Vintage stamp set and Everyday Enchantment DSP from Sale-A-Bration and couldn't wait to use them on this card.

Happy Anniversary Mom & Dad!

Happy Saturday,
Yesterday was my parents' 49th wedding anniversary. I can't believe that they've been married as long as 49 years. Of course I made a card for them. I used the Valentine Defined stamp set for the image. I know Valentine's Day is over, but I love the kissing flamingoes for an anniversary card. For the sketch of the card I went to Freshly Made Sketches #24. I am also participating in another card challenge. This challenge is Stampin Royalty's #113 Dressing Down (No Embellishments) challenge.

Here's my card:

Here are the details:

CS: Basic Gray, Real Red, Whisper White
DSP: Love Impressions
Stamp Set: Valentine Defined, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Pretty in Pink, Real Red
Tools: Big Shot, Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Scallop Trim Border Punch

Have a great weekend,
