A few cards.....a few days late!

My friend Vic sent me these lovely image sheets from Crafty Secrets a couple of weeks ago and I finally have a chance to share them. They are the loveliest Easter images - I was so happy to give out hand made cards. Two of the pictures aren't the greatest - I needed to send them out to family in Idaho and didn't bother to check the pictures before I put them in the box and sealed it...but you get the picture. I think my favorite card/image is the first one with the pink and the Easter bunny. I gave it to my Mom, but really thought seriously about putting it in a frame for a deco for next year! Which one is your favorite?

I think the eyelet ribbon or border is something that Vic sent me a long while ago. It looks so pretty on these cards, I wish this picture was better!
This was another of my favorite cards, the yellow cardstock looks so pretty with the little bunny....I gave this one to my brother and his wife, I think my SIL liked it! In addition to all these pretty pictures - and more - the Crafty Secrets image sheet had several little images that made perfect tags for the Easter Treasure hunt we had on Sunday morning.

This isn't an Easter card, but one that's been on my desk patiently waiting for 10 minutes to stitch and finish it so I could send it out. I quickly painted a vintage photo with my EK Success brushables markers and sprayed it with a fixative then collaged it into this card. This was a fun card to make.

I've decided that since it cost about 3.95 or more to buy a pretty card that I'm going to be making all my cards from now on....I've got so much stuff in my studio that it's silly not to make cards.
Thanks for visiting and Ta Ta for now!
