A Tweet Thank You

I love cards where the cardmaker creates sweet little scenes.  I am working on learning to do that myself and collectiong various stamps with images to aid me as well.  Here is another attempt.  I used a stamp set from Simon Says Stamp and punched the clouds and butterflies with EK Success punches.  The paper is from Lawn Fawn....don't you just LOVE the tiny print?
I am entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Monday Things With Wings Challenge .  I am slipping my entry in right under the wire before the deadline..
I hope your Easter was wonderful.  Ours was quiet but restful but just what we needed as we face another work week tomorrow morning.
Thanks for visiting my blog.

New Home, New Life

My niece Frances and her husband Dan recently relocated to Raleigh, North Carolina from the Chicago area.  I know firsthand what that is like having done that myself nearly 11 years ago.  My husband and I moved to South Carolina to make a new life for ourselves.  It is not easy leaving friends and family but Dan had a wonderful job offer and I know they will enjoy the warmer weather in Raleigh and make friends quickly.  I wanted to send a card with our congratulations and to welcome them to southern living.  I used my two favorites on this card..... a nearly vintage Bella Blvd collection called Honey I'm Home and sentiment stamps from 2 different Paper Smooches stamps. I am entering it in the Paper Smooches Anything Goes Challenge.

Happy Easter Cole

I hope my 8 year old grandson Cole does not think he is too old for this card.  It is really hard to make Easter cards for tween boys.  I think next year I will just send them candy and money....I am sure they will like that!!

Have an Egg-cellent Easter

Making an Easter card for a 12 year old boy is not an easy thing but I hope I achieved it with this card for my grandson Jacob.  He is a sweet kid and I just sent a package of goodies for him and his brother Cole today.  They live in Indiana and I really miss getting to spend holidays with them.
For this card I used this sketch from Always Playing With Paper:
