{cQc #26} Easter Blessings!

Easter Blessings
to All my Blog Readers!

Aren't these colors simply *perfect* for Easter and Spring?

This is another fabulous color combination and inspiration photo from Arielle at the Colour Q Blog. She found these "cutie-patootie" pair of booties on Etsy.

My base cardstock is Stampin' Up! Lovely Lilac and I've stamped it with the On the Spot background to coordinate with my flowers.  The flowers are a combination of a couple different retired sets ~ Seeing Spots and Just 'Cause I Like You.   The Bermuda Bay layer was embossed with the swiss dots Cuttlebug folder and I used the Stampin' Up! scalloped edge punch on the right side... and also on the Certainly Celery "grass".

The photo on the left above shows you how I've finished the inside of the card.  I've left it blank for a personal handwritten message. 

I had hoped to spend all of my 3-day weekend stamping and creating cards, but duty called and for the past two days I've been cleaning and organizing our basement storeroom!  Goodness! It is amazing how much STUFF we have accumlated over the years!    Have you seen the show "Hoarders"?  : )  I would like to think it's not quite that bad, but years of "junkin" (going to garage sales & auctions) and collecting does add up!   Can any of you relate?   ; )

Before I go, I want to share an *adorable* Easter easel card I received in the mail yesterday from my sweet friend Dori who lives in Hawaii.  I have to find out how in the world she made this because it just shimmers!  And if I didn't know better, I think she may have created this bunny background paper herself!!   What's funny, is that I've been making easel cards the past couple weeks, but I've never made this particular size.  It wasn't until I was photographing her card that I saw the extra fold and realized it was an easel card!  duh!  :)

Wishing you all a very blessed Easter Sunday filled with much love, peace and happiness!

Hugs & Smiles ~

This is fabulous, Pam!! Love how you used the trendy tree for the flower (at least that is what it looks like from here...I forgot to check the ingredients LOL!). Great use of those colours too.
