Easter Greetings!

We started off our morning with an Easter Egg Hunt, so what better way to spend the afternoon than creating Easter cards? How cute are these little chicks? I used Denami Designs Chickie Easter Basket to stamp the main image and colored it in with my Stampin' Write makers. At a rubber stamp show, Nami showed me the most darling trick...use an Exacto knife to cut a slit along the top of the Easter basket, and push through some real Easter grass. Absolutely adorable! I used my Stampin' Up Year-Round Fun II and SU Stampin' Pads (in Pretty in Pink, Barely Banana, and Gable Green) to create my own printed paper. I framed it all with SU Gable Green card stock. Inside, I will include a photo of my daughter in her Easter dress holding a bouquet daffodils. It will be a toss up as to who is cuter - the Easter chickies or Sydney!?! On another note, I am happy to report that Maddie has been seizure-free. Phew! Thank you to everyone for your concern. Thank you also to those who were kind enough to comment on my new blog. Have a great weekend!
