Easter Chick

What's cuter than Easter bunnies than little Easter chicks! I did CASE this template,but I changed the colors. I just don't remember who from (so whoever you are this is sooo cute)! I really love this set "A Good Egg", as it is very versitile in many ways for Easter. The chick popping out of the egg is just too cute!

Easter Monkey

Who doesn't love Easter? With it comes springtime, birds singing, flowers popping up, and most of all warmer weather! Here is my Easter Sock Monkey that we did at Therapy Card Nite. Although this picture doesn't show it all, this card is layered on purple all the way around. This is a simple kids card, but don't rule out those "adults" that love Mr. Sock Monkey like me!

I love going through our catalogs looking at all the wonderful samples that they give us. Hince the name IDEA BOOK & catalog, as I always remind my workshop guests. So this one is from an older catty and all I did was take the "sack topper" change the colors around and make it into a card. And since my grandmother once worked for a button factory and handed down the HUGE tin of buttons to me, I am never at a loss for them. So the girls got to enjoy rumaging through a sack of buttons to find one they liked for their card. So enjoy....

Being a SU demo we get SU magazines in which I also take and make cards into my own. I so loved it the card that I incorporated it into my own once again. I used the same colors, but changed up the hearts that were used and a few other things. So, you SU demos, without looking, can you point out the differences? I think the girls liked making a card that could use a more normal sized envelope that they have readily on hand!

More than a thought...

Oh I love going through out catty and looking at the different samples and trying to make my favorites my own. As in this card. I took the main look from the sample cup from the Thoughts & Prayers set. By using the same "look" sort of I made it in to this great card. I incorporated a SALE-A-BRATION set "Whimsical Words" to finish it off along with some ribbon. The girls really liked this card and they love this set. Liked this so much I made up a few of these cards to have on hand!

Tree of friendship...

Therapy Card Nite's theme this past month was called Spring Envy. So every card had something green in it to turn our thoughts toward springtime. (which could hurry up and come already!) After all the snow and cold we've been having during this time of "global warming" I thought it would help with cabin fever. Atleast mine anyway! So here is one simple card to get us ready for springs budding trees!

Perpetual Calendar...

Finally after having the tuitorial for I don't know how many years, I finally made one. Well, actually 3 of them! This picture doesn't really show the colors very well at all! Once I got going it wasn't as hard as I thought it might be. And to be quite honest I am thinking of making this into one of my Christmas Stamp Camps that starts in August and runs through November! Never to early to start on those Christmas gifts!!! I know there are some of you who are starting to think about their Christmas cards already! Any way I hope you enjoy this as much as the demos who got this from our Christmas demo meeting that, as Jamie said, has been put off twice before, but altleast it is before our next Christmas get together!
