Easter Cards

I finally got 3 Easter cards done. I really only have one stamp set to use, so I ordered Easter Blessings from Taylored Expressions a few days ago. This first card is going to my Godmother & her husband in Rio Rancho, NM. I tried to keep it soft but neutral since it is for a couple. The cross is from Inkadinkado and let me just tell you the flowers were not easy for me to color. Overall I really love this card, so I might have to duplicate it. The dp is from Basic Grey's new line Kioshi. This second card is going to a wonderful woman we call Nana. What a blessing she is to so many people. Her favorite color is purple, so I hope this card brings joy to her. See what I mean about one Easter stamp.

For this card I decided to use a scripture that reflects an Easter theme. I am sending this to my Aunt in Georgia. I decided to go very feminine on this one with all the pearls and the soft paper. The dp is Luxury Stack from DCWV. I originally bought this stack to scrapbook my daughter's First Holy Communion, but I never got around to that. (LOL)

I'm a Shining Star

I'm soooo excited!!!! The shabby chic card I posted a few days ago got me a Shining Star and a blinkie from Stampin' Sisters in Christ . This really made my day to have a card I made recognized.

I just begun to make Easter cards, yes I forgot it is in 2 weeks. I made 3 already but will have to post tomorrow as I am sleepy. Until tomorrow.....nite-nite!

I thought I would try to make a shabby chic card. I see so many beautiful cards made in this style, but was afraid to try it. Finally said what the heck and started distressing my cardstock. This is what I came up with and entered this into the Stamping Sisters in Christ Challenge. Notice anything different about this cards? I finally figured out how to do a watermark on them. I am not computer savy, but thankfully I have Photoshop Elements 6.0 and it was not too hard. Couldn't figure out how to save the watermark, but I will try tomorrow. So this card was done for the Viva la Verve Sketch Challenge week 1 for March. They are already in week 4 ,so I am way behind.
That's it for tonight. I got new dp the other day so I can't wait to post new cards.
Love & Blessings

Oops! I forgot to post my daughter's birthday card. So here it is. I used Sassy Suzi from The Greeting Farm and dp from DCWV. This stamp reminds me so much of my fasionista girl. Here is a picture of the Birthday Girl. She loves to take pictures of herself.

I totally forgot to post the birthday cards I recently made.

The yellow & green was made for my friend Joy using a Mojo sketch,
the black & cream was made for my friend Patricia using a Viva La Verve sketch, and the red & yellow one was made for my daughter's hair stylist. I will come back later to show the card I made for my daughter's 18 birthday.
