Hello Crafty Friends!!
Popping in today to share two cards that I made for this week’s CARDS Magazine Gallery Challenge – Easter Cards! I adore Paige’s challenges because they always inspire me to create something unexpected for me. Today’s cards are no exception. Both cards were created using my brand spankin’ new Silhouette SD. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!! The cut files were purchased from the Silhouette Studio.
My first card was a bunny shaped card that cut out like a dream. I embellished it with some fun polka dots using Papertrey Ink’s Polka Dot Basics II and some Fresh Snow pigment ink. The gingham bunny tails are some brads that I picked up at Hobby Lobby a hundred years ago. The tag was created using the new Tiny Tags die cut from Papertrey Ink, and the sentiment is from the PTI Mixed Messages set. The tag is tied around the bunny’s neck with Cotton Candy Baker’s Twine. Cute, right?!
My second card can also be used as a treat holder – isn’t he stinkin’ adorable?! Again, my Silhouette cut this baby out like it was buttah, I tell ya! The pink polka dot paper is from Papertrey Ink and is called Happy Spots. More Cotton Candy Baker’s Twine for his whiskers, and the sweet tag is again from the Tiny Tags Die Cut and coordinating Stamp set. How fun would it be to create a bunch of these with some yummy Cadbury Chocolate Easter Eggs wrapped up inside? Yummmm!!
I thought I’d share a picture from the wedding that I was in this past weekend. My sweet friend, Kim Hughes, got married to the love of her life, and I was blessed and honored to be her Matron of Honor. Isn’t she beautiful?!! I also had the great pleasure of meeting one of Kim’s friends, Becky Olson, whose work I have admired for a while now. The other cute face in the pic is Lori Barnett (far left), our fun and silly cropping buddy. Love these girls!!
That’s it for me today, folks. Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you have a great day!
