Welcome Spring!

Hello my Stampin' Friends!

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter long weekend; sorry I disappeared on you, but I decided to take the long weekend and enjoy the time with my family and friends, on this side of the computer!

All is not lost – I do have some great pictures to share with  you!  I was able to 'get crafty', and made some cards and table treats for our family dinner 🙂

Okay – now back to Easter! 

I had such fun making cards for friends and family this year; here is one I made for my BFF, Susan. 

This is the front of the card:

 

  and this is the inside!

Don't you just love this bunny!?  I know that this card has been done a lot of times, by a lot of different people, but it's the first time I made it! 

When I made the cards for my parents, and my brother & SIL, I did them on different days – but obviously, my subconscious had a 'theme' going on!  Have a look:

 

What do you think?  I was definitely on an 'egg' theme, don't you think? haha…They liked the cards, anyway!

Did you notice how I made a boo-boo on the 1st card – I missed properly applying the heat & stick powder along the one inside edge, so the Dazzling Diamonds glitter rubbed off!  Not to worry; I used my Two Way Glue Pen, applied some glue, then sprinkled more Dazzling Diamonds on top – and it looked good as new!    And I'm pretty sure I've already shared the 'Easter Blessings' card with you earlier; I just new my Dad would love it, so had to make one for them! 

We had a wonderful dinner – and along with the cake for dessert, I brought a little Easter treat for each place setting. 

Here's what I made for each place:

 

Don't they look like cute little carrots?!  I CASED the idea from a fellow Demonstrator named Julie Pitta – you can see hers on her blog here – http://thoughtsthatstick.blogspot.ca/2013/02/carrot-treat-holders.html

And here's how the beautiful table looked, before we had to move the flowers to make way for all the food!

 

I filled mine with a cello bag full of 'Little Eggies' – candy covered chocolate eggs, and it was so full, I couldn't fit the little gold Lindt bunny inside!  So he's just tucked in next to his giant carrot 🙂

We had such a great dinner; it's always nice to spend time with family, sharing stories, catching up on each other's lives, and sharing laughs.

Well that's it for me for now – I have more new cards to share with you, so I'll be back tomorrow!  In the meantime, 2 things to remember – the Late Night Stampers Treasure Hunt, and my new Class Schedule – check it out, and SIGN UP for your classes now, before they fill up! 

Until tomorrow – Happy Stamping!
