Easter Card with Ducks

Hello! It's almost Easter and time to get the cards in the mail. This Easter Card with Ducks was made for my parents. I usually make them a card with a bunny, so I thought I would do something different. The image is from Unity Stamps and it's called Lucky Little Ducks. The Happy Easter sentiment is from the bunny- keep you forever sentiment kit by Unity Stamps. Copic markers were used to color the image. I found a plaid paper by Recollections that coordinated perfectly and added some floral patterned paper by Doodlebug Designs. Everything was adhered flat for easy shipping and that's it. So glad you stopped by and I hope you enjoy the rest of your day!

Mother's Day Card

Hello and happy Sunday! It may be a little early for Mother's Day, but since I'm not crafting as much, I thought I should make one early. This Mother's Day Card was made using colors from the current Inky Paws Challenge to use: Bubblegum Pink, Lilac, Spring Green and White. Most of the supplies are by Newton's Nook. The stamp set is Best Mom Oval, along with Oval Frames die and Springtime paper pad. A piece of pink stripe paper from my stash was added and the markers are Stampin' Blends. That's it, so glad you stopped by.

Challenges entered: Cardz 4 Galz (Spring Flowers), Crafty Catz (Anything Goes/Spring Colours), Inky Paws (Colors), Krafy Chicks (All Occasions) and We Love Stamping (Sping is in the Air). 🌼🌸🌼

Birdies Thank You Card

Good day! It's a lovely rainy day here in Oklahoma, so I decided to spend some time crafting. I made this Birdies Thank You Card for the sweet lady who does our taxes. She has been doing them since my hubby and I have been married, 25 years. A thank you card is probably long overdue. 

The card layout is from this weeks challenge at Tuesday Morning Sketches. An image from Unity Stamps called For all Your Help Birdies was stamped and then colored with copic markers. When I started looking at sentiments, nothing fit right. Then I remembered the retired Vertical Greetings stamp set from Stampin' Up!, that I had never used, and decided that would work perfectly. The floral patterned paper is new from Echo Park from the It's Spring Time paper pad and some coordinating paper from my scrap bin. A butterfly from my stash was added and that's it. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!🌼

Newton's Peeps Easter Card

Good day! Recently, I've been busy making my friend some Easter cards. This Newton's Peeps Easter Card is my latest one I made for her. She also likes cats, so I hope she likes the Newton image as much as I do.🐀 

The image was colored with Copic markers and then die cut with the coordinating die. For the scalloped and center layers I used the Frames & Flags die set by Newton's Nook. Three purple flowers added along with an extra chick on top of the basket for detail. Everything was adhered flat and that's it. So glad you stopped by! 

Challenges entered: Crafty Catz (Anything Goes/Option Spring), Inky Paws (Spring Theme) and Stamping Sensations (Anything Stamped/Option Wings and Tails).
