It's always good to see you. I have the best looking readers in all of Blogland! I sure hope that you all made it through the stormy weather of the past week unscathed. I thought about many of you in the states that were affected. We've had quite a couple of nights with heavy wind and rain, but thankfully, no damage.
Well, last week's poll revealed that the most aggravating part of our card making is CROOKED CUTS. I'm with the majority there. You have all read my rants about paper cutters that don't cut straight. Coming in at a close second was SMUDGES. Again that would be my second biggest frustration. Thanks for participating. I've got a new question up, so let your opinion count!
Nothing over the top for tonight's post. I've been scouring the internet for some new creative ideas and have been coming up dry. But I did create 3 cards for this post so here they are:
My first is a card I made duplicates of for a couple of neighbors and my doctor's office for Easter:
This is the newest addition to my Happy Hoppers collection. This sleeping bunny is just adorable. Looks to me like he ate everything in the basket and now is sleeping it off. I colored it with my colored pencils and oms, added the bow and done. I really do think this is a perfect Easter image. This image is called "Hoppy Dreams".
Here is another Easter card:
Do all of you have those neighbors who decorate their outdoors for Easter? I was inspired by those folks that decorate their trees and shrubs with brightly colored plastic eggs. I really do love the DIY Topiary Stamp set from Flourishes. I've used it more than any other stamp set I have. So, I thought an egg covered topiary tree would be perfect for an Easter card. I created the little eggs in Microsoft Word and cut them out. Made the little tiny bow with the Bow Easy (love that thing). I kind of like how it turned out.
This last one represents something that I normally don't do, but I did make an exception for this card. This is almost an identical copy of a card I saw HERE.
I changed several things, but they look so similar. I changed colors a bit, stamp, ribbon color, sentiment. . .but all in all it is a case. I loved the look of her card and it was one of those classics that can be used for so many things. Thank you Wendybell for the inspiration for this card!
PIC OF THE WEEK
I took this photo yesterday, and it just made me think that it was the perfect depiction of Winter giving into Spring. You have the trees in many different stages, the dead grasses from Winter's cold and the greening up all happening in one scene.
OK, that's it. Thanks so much for stopping by. To all of those who celebrate Easter, I wish you many Easter blessings. Easter also happens to be my Gunther's Birthday. So along with Easter dinner we will be having the traditional ice cream birthday cake for dessert to celebrate his day.
Hugs to all of you!
