Happy Late Easter!!!!

Happy late Easter!!!  I would apologize for the late post but I had a busy last couple of weeks and for good reason.  Our church put on an Easter egg hunt for disabled children this year!   It was a last minute thing, but God's hand was in it and many children were blessed!  We had one for those in wheelchairs with magnetic eggs, one for autistic kids, one for visually impaired with beeping eggs, and a general for the all others and siblings.  It was a great time by all who helped and participated.  For most it was their first egg hunt ever! 

With all that going on, I missed putting up the Easter cards made last month along with the extra gift from the Easter Stamp Camp that I held.  So better late than never, but here goes...

This was the extra gift I had the girls make during the Stamp Camp.  I can't remember who's this is as I found it on pintrest.  I really need to start writing  down names.  I just never know what I will end up doing for sure.  See lots that I like, but takes me a bit to decide what I end up making...

Here is one of the cards that we did do.  I can say I did copy the basket from someone.  Since I missed last months card nite due to a flooded basement I carried over the shaving cream technique.  I thought it went well as our Easter eggs!  The girls really liked it.

you make me HAPPY...

So sad to see this years Sale-a-Bration come to an end because I loved alot of what was in it!!!  Such as the See Ya Later stamp set that I used here on the card along with the Sweet Sorbet DSP and Small Banner Punch!!!  (used as the suns rays)  I added a bit of Rhinestone bling on the sun and a strip of ribbon to top it off....

Peachy Keen...

So I cased this cute card layout from my good friend, Jamie Hurley.  I loved the bow that is made from the envelope punch board!!!  So I tried it out, and guess what?  It is easy peasy...   As I have recently found out there are many things you can make besides envelopes from this awesome little board!!!  

I used the Peachy Keen stamp from Peach Keen set from the Occasions Mini that is out along with Sweet Sorbet DSP from Sale-a-Bration.  Once the bow was complete I added a bit of bling with our Rhinestone Jewels.

Here is a picture of my youngest son, Quintin, looking quite "Studly" for his senior Vise Versa dance.  This really captures how he likes to dress up.  Except for the tie, although once in a while he does wear one.  He has always liked to dress up a bit and adding shades just put his whole look together.  Oh don't worry, I did get other pictures, just this one by himself...he just looks STUDLY!!!

For this page I used Twitterpated DSP, Wild Wasabi, Perfect Plum, and Basic Black card stock, Basic Black, Certainly Celery, Lovely Lilac ribbons, daisyd's cardstock stickers, and George and Basic Shapes on the Cricut.  I know it's hard to see, but I pulled the colors from his corsage.

You Make the World ~ Hexagon Hive

Here is a card that I did for a workshop.  I stepped out of my comfort zone a bit with the colors, but I can say that I really liked how it turned out!  Most of this has come right from the Celebrate the Everyday and the Sale~A~Bration Catalogs!   Can honestly say that this time around there was quite a few things I did like!!!

For this card I used Crisp Cantaloupe for my base, then I used a sheet from Sweet Sorbet DSP (SAB), then topped it off with Pool Party cut out with the Hexagon Hive Thinlit Die (Celebrate the Everyday Mini).  I stamped "You make the World a better Place" from Starburst Sayings Set (C the E Mini) with Basic Black onto Crisp Canaloupe and cut it out with the coordinating Starburst Framelits Die (also from C the E Mini) and placed that over the Basic Black grosgrain ribbon.  

Really like the effect this Hive has when placed over DSP!!!
