I am done with my Valentine's Cards so I am moving on to the holidays that follow. This past weekend, it was in the 70's in Alabama which is very rare and a small gift in the midst of colder weather. Everyone was in shorts and doing outside activities. Made me think of Easter so I am sharing my first Easter card this year.
I used the new Happy Easter Cross Image and the Small Easter Cross (I added the Small Easter cross on top of the cross on the main image to make it really pop up). Added a few liquid pearls to give it a magical feel. This was a quick and easy card - the best kind.

We have had a fabulously warm weekend here in NW Ohio. We're talking just a sweatshirt or light jacket which is unheard of for January. This time last year we were buried in snow! All this warmth has me dreaming of spring and that led to this Easter card. I used the new Cute Bunny for this CAS card. After stamping and coloring the little bunny with Copics, I stamped the Happy Easter greeting with Versafine black onyx ink and then added the yellow layer. I wanted to add the ribbon with a button, but couldn't find a green button in my stash to match, so I created the button. I just punched 5 circles, added the button holes, glued them together, colored it with the same green Copic, added some Glossy Accents and waited for it to dry. This was the hardest part for me.
I really like CAS cards. Not just because they are easy to create, but I really like the open white space. I'm thinking I'll be making a few more of these for my grandkids for this Easter.
