2013 Easter Cards

I have seen a few "Bunny Hole" cards and decided to make one of my own for my No Foolin' It's Easter Therapy Card Nite month.  Thought this was a pretty neat idea making me think of Alice in Wonderland, one of my favorite Disney movies.  I used soft colors with some ribbon to finish it off.
Easter Duck
This is a duck rendition on the Easter Chick I made for Therapy Card Nite last year.  I so loved this card I had to make it again with a slight change.  Love all the ideas that you can do with all our Big Shot dies.  Really love the scallop die and all the "fun" things you can do with it!!!
Matchbook Easter Bunny
It's been a while since I made a matchbook card and what better way to showcase one than with a chocolate bunny in the grass.  I have quite a few new girls so this was something new for most of them.  I really liked this bunny and had used it last year and just had to bring it back for this year.
I really hope you all have a great Easter and enjoy your family and don't forget the real reason for this wonderful season!!!

St Louis Regional Thanks card

Spent the weekend in St Louis so that I could attend a regional on Saturday.  It was my first SU event since the 20th Convention in Salt Lake City!  Just to give you a time line for those who do not know, this is Stampin' Up!'s 25th year celebration!!!  Boy, I have really missed coming to these events.  Not only do I get a lot of great ideas, but just being together with hundreds of other demos who share the same passion is amazing!  Not only that, but I was chosen to be a helper for this years event!!!  What an honor!!! 
So this is one of the super cute projects that we made.  Love that, not only is it masculine, but it has one of my favorite accessories ~ a matching envelope!!!  Never send a naked envelope, give the mail carrier something special to enjoy also....  Really liked that we used a sponging technique that I have been doing at my card nites, but in a different way.  Nice to see I am on the right path with showing it, now I have a new way to share it with the girls!  Not only the technique, but also the banner look...
Be watching this week as I share more convention projects...

Stippled Blossom Birthday

Made this during Therapy Card Nite.  Really love that there was Twitterpated DSP that matched with the set.  I also used the Labels Collection Framelits with some some rhinestones to help dress it up a bit.  Finished it off with the Happiest Birthday from Apothecary Art and a touch of the white gel pen.

Antiqued Shoe

I really like this shoe from the Fabulous You set!  My cousin, Heather, has a lovely shoe fettish that I was able to help with!  :-)     I bought this awsome pair of zebra print 4" red heeled shoes that she loved so I took down a pair to her.  Told her that I also had another pair in the same style but lepard print and with a brown heel.  So when I got home I sent her a pair of those too!  That is why this shoe is sooo perfect for her.  I dressed it up with the Flower Trim and a safty pin on the distressed shoe image.  I also embossed the shoe with the cherry cobbler embossing powder to really make it stand out.

I (heart) U

Saw a similar card on a site and made some changes to make it more my own.  YES!  That is some "dry wall" tape, does anyone else remember SU selling this?  I have a roll of it I dug out and used to help make this card.   I also used the Red Glitter paper for the heart that I feel helped it stand out and Notable Alphabet for the I and U.
