While the girls were playing this morning I snuck down to my craft room to do some much needed crafting (yes, I have to sneak - they always want me near by!) My high-school best friend is coming over Friday night to make Easter cards with me and my girls so I figured I should have some ideas ready. Here is the first one - look familiar? Yep - it's a variation of my Circle Circus birthday card:
(I used Circle Circus, Perfect Plum, Certainly Celery, Daffodil Delight, Pretty in Pink, Concord Crush and Marina Mist inks and the Concord Crush cs & ribbon, the jumbo scallop and 1 3/8", 1" & 3/4" circle punches - and lots of dimensionals)
It's not my FAVORITE card of all time (I'm not a hugs fan of the traditional Easter colors) but I think it will be fun (and easy) for the girls to make.
I then wanted to make a simpler version of this card:
Finally - a friend of mine is getting married in April and I want to give her a stack of Thank You cards as a gift. I tweaked this card:
So although my projects aren't 100% new they certainly fit the bill. Heck - why re-invent the wheel, right?
I hope to do more crafting in the next few days so I can use my BRAND NEW stamp set and designer series paper from the upcoming Summer Mini catalogue. Check back soon to see what I come up with.
Have a happy day :)
