Greek Easter

Χριστός ανέστη! 

καλό Πάσχα!

Hi Everyone!

Today is Greek Easter. Here is a special card I made with a red egg. The Greeks play a game with the red eggs by tapping them together and saying Χριστός ανέστη! Christ has risen!

Have a great day!

Easter Butterfly

Hi Everyone!
I hope you are having a terrific week! It is spring break for us here so we are on a little family vacation to see D.C. I am posting from my iPad - I hope this works.

Today I am sharing another Easter card. I used this beautiful paper as my focal point and my Spellbinders to create a base for the sentiment. The sentiment stamp is from Mypinkstamper. Some light and airy ribbon, a few rhinestones on the butterfly and there you go.

Enjoy the rest of your week!

Blessed Easter

Hi Everyone!

Happy Easter! I hope you and you family have a special day today!

I only have a quick minute to post today. I am sharing a card made with Kate's ABCs Cricut cartridge and the Birds and Swirls Cuttlbug embossing folder.

With Sympathy

Hi Everyone!

I hope that you are enjoying your weekend.  I've been really busy with work lately, but I wanted to take a moment to share this card with you.  This is a sympathy card that I made for a close family friend who recently lost her husband.  I hope she finds some comfort in knowing that we are all thinking of her.

The card base is made from kraft card stock, I then layered it with this beautiful paper from DCWV Garden Party Stack, and the lace border was made with my EK Success border bunch.  The ribbon is from Michaels.  I added two sweet Prima flowers and dressed them up with an antique brad from Stampin-up.  I stamped the K. Andrews sentiment in Chocolate Chip ink from Stampin-up.  I also used two other sentiments from this K. Andrews sympathy set on the inside.  I made the envelope using my Martha Stewart score board,  This is the first time I made an envelope with the corner tool.  It was easier than I expected.  I will definitely use this more often!  The dimensions are slightly larger so there is plenty of room for a card with some dimension.  I also lined the envelope with some pretty paper from the K&Co Designer paper stack to make it a little more special.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
