Have a Happy Easter

Well, it's the end of a very long week and I'm not quite in the mood for a holiday. I would actually enjoy a nice quite Sunday, but instead we will be traveling to Northern New Jersey to see a house full of family. I never got around to making the Easter cards I had planned, but managed to make one Easter project which will be a gift for my Mom.

The paper I used was on clearance at Michael's on Thursday,and fortunately I already owned the coordinating buttons and paper flowers. The colors are definitely spring like, although not your traditional Easter colors. I thought it might be something she can hang somewhere in the house throughout the Spring.

Have a wonderful Holiday,

A Handfull of Cutsie Cards

Just a quick post with a few cards to share.I apologize for the shortness but my little guy had a rough night, he woke up coughing and crying at 3am and I never really got back to sleep. I'm feeling a bit woozy right about now.

The first card I want to share is one that started as an idea that was dancing around in my head all day yesterday. I managed to put it together before I picked up my little guy from school. I was so happy that I was able to incorporate my idea to fit the 2S4U sketch of the week, just when I thought I would never find the time to fit in a challenge.

I've been having so much fun playing with We R Memory Keepers White Out line of paper and it's perfect for fun birthday cards.

The final card is one I made as a special request. I really had fun with it--I got all my pretty girly girl paper and glitter out! I even customized the envelope--I couldn't stop myself. I'm also currently obsessed with textured card stock-- it's just luscious! I used Bazzil and Stampin 'Up textured card stock on all three of these cards. I just can't get enough of it!

I hope you enjoy,
