Easter Blessings

Hello, Hope you are doing well. Our temps here in Florida are rising and I am so very sad. I want Spring to stay forever! Luckily, hubby and I enjoyed the somewhat cooler temps (85) yesterday and spent the day on our bikes for our 30th Anniversary. It was a very nice day and it felt good to be outdoors by the water.

Now onto my card. I have an Easter theme for you today, with a few more to share in a few days or so. I am playing along with two challenges. The first is The Card Concept. They have an Easter-inspired photo for us. I have quite a few elements on my card like they do in the photo; the bunny with no face, carrots, small eggs, and the Easter Blessings sign.

I am also linking up with Inkspirational Challenges where the challenge is Critters that Hop.

Card Details: Bow Die-Pink Fresh Studio, Wreath was made using a Sizzix leaf die cut out multiple times, the bunnies, eggs, and carrots are from Spellbinders, the greeting is from Papertrey Ink.

Thanks for stopping in! I love your visits!

Take care and do something today that brings you joy! Nanc’


Guesting along at Inspired by Challenge

Hello everyone, Today I am tickled to say that I was asked by my sweet friend Cindy Beach to be her guest over at the Inspired By Challenge. Thanks so much Cindy! I am honored to be with all of you.

Here are the photos and the sketch that you have to chose from this time around! You can pick whichever one you like or can pick one photo and use the sketch, or use the sketch alone. As you can probably tell I was inspired by the Christmas photo. I also wanted to add another Christmas card to my completed list. As I looked at the photo and decided what to do, I immediately thought it would be fun to make a wreath and add some Christmas trees to pick up on the Buffalo Check in the photo. I even made my own babies breath by sticking dots on the end of some small branches. Not sure they came out quite like I had imagined they would, but it was fun anyways.

Card Details: Postage Dies are from Hero Arts. The wreath base is from SU-Swirly Scriblits. The 6 sprigs of Greenery from Sizzix are die cut in the same color green and layered on the base to form the wreath shape. The trees are from Impression Obsession. The bow is from Paper Smooches. The tiny sprigs that I carefully glued white dots on are from Spellbinders. The greeting is from Verve and at the last minute I decided it needed a pop of gold here and there.

Thanks for stopping by and make sure you head on over to Inspired By and check out all the other cards and see who else is joining the rest of the Design Team as their guest this week. I know we all will be inspired!

Take care, Nanc’
