Happy Easter

Hello friends.  It has been a month since I posted.  I hope you are well. Finally the snow is off the ground, and the hint of spring is here. I need to make a few Easter cards.  I have wanted to use this cross die from MFT for a while.  I think it worked out nice with the MFT stencil backround and the Mini Rolled Roses.

I have a card for PTI Win It Wednesday, Fabulous Favorites #3.  This challenge is to use your favorite die.  I used the Basket Cover Plate and the Fruit Salad Cherries Die.   I also used a mixture of Distress Oxide Inks on the basket, and PTI papers on the Fruit Salad die.

Lots of Love

We have had some bitter cold weather in upstate NY lately.  My mojo is at an all time low, and I am trying to push the creative button!  I guess the Christmas holidays did me in a bit too.  My happy news is my daughter Sarah got married in January.  Her husband  Frederick is the best, and just like another son.  I am very happy for them!
I have a card today for the current Lawn Fawn Challenge #45, Lots of Love.  I just love the Poka Dot Heart Backdrop, the Scripty XOXO, and the How You Bean Conversation Add Ons.  They are so adorable!  I covered the Scripty XOXO with Martha Stewart Kunzite Glitter.  I also used my new Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils. I am also entering my card in The SSS Wednesday Calenge, Anything Goes.
