Happy Easter

I want to wish everyone a happy and blessed Easter!

I know it has been a long time since I have posted. I promise to make some more time to post very soon. Life is just crazy sometimes! :)

I wanted to share the Easter card that my super-talented crafty daughter made for me for Easter. The font is Cricut Don Juan, eggs cut from Cricut George and Basic Shapes. She inked the eggs with Distress Inks. She added patterned paper bands with sting and fibers. Then she added some clear crystal bling. What a fabulous job she did!!

Have a happy day.

Modern Birthday Card

I wanted to try out a a few ideas I've been seeing around the craft world lately:
Chevron designs
Teal and orange color scheme
and I wanted to enter a Spring themed challenge

After thinking about how to combine all those I came up with this simple, modern card. It's not my typical style but I really like the results.

My recipe:
White cardstock card-5x6
Teal zigzags from a Creative Memories short cut pack
Orange cardstock scrap-cut at 3-1/2"
White Cardstock cut from Cricut Cindy Loo cartridge at 3"

I entered it in the following challenges:

Have a Happy Spring!
