Easter Blessings


This week's Stamp Simply Challenge is to make a creation that is Easter themed -- this could be a project that is specific to the Christian celebration of Easter itself -- or more generically to spring and the the new birth of flowers, grasses and fresh new life. This challenge is not limited to cards only -- anything goes! More details are here. We would love to have you join us!

This card was made using Crafty Secrets' Easter Creative Scraps, Classic DP, and Bouquet of Joy stamp set. I used my tracing wheel for faux stitching on the lower panel, added some trims, glitter, and flower and my card was complete. I love using the Crafty Secret images when I need something that is quick and easy!

I just wanted to say thank you to Sharon and the design team for allowing me to join you this month! It has been a joy and honor. Thank you for your kindness and hospitality. Thank you also to all of you who have come and visited my blog! I hope each of you have the opportunity to enjoy the new life that Spring brings!


If you have time please come and see what this wonderful design team has created!
