Easter Cards

This weekend I managed to get some cards made to send to our kids and their families.  Didn't go anywhere as my car wasn't running.  Lots of little things that could become major and a couple almost major things.  Guess when one owns a 2002 car with 231,000+ miles things need fixed.

I made this card using colored card stock, inks, and Silks that will be available in our June catalog, Sour Lemon and Cosmic Grape.  Such BRIGHT neon colors!   It was inspired by a card made by Becky Lemire but with a couple changes so that it wasn't a total case.  I used a few other products, The Light ATS, Journey Glaze, Sparkle Cuts, and Special Celebrations Sequins.

The heart isn't real clear but I used my Star-Dom dies to make the heart.

This card was almost cased of one in our soon-to-expire Bloom This Way mini catalog.  Lots of products make this card.  The button is from my personal stash, not FSJ.

I used a white gel pen to color the eyes before adding Glaze to make the glasses.  You can kinda see they are colored.

Bubble Gum

I noticed that some papers are on backorder but if you order they'll be shipped when back in stock.  I have 2 packs of Whip Cream somewhere along with a couple other items backordered.  FSJ has been real good about getting them out when they get product back in.  We grew by about 500 new coaches in January which did cause some of these issues.  And, with the great February and March specials, wow!  

Friday I'll show you the cute little Easter Pockets I made for grandkids.  I love making things for our family and I've been told they enjoy getting my fun projects.
