Wishing You Every Easter Blessing (4/13)

 .


Happy Hump Day!    We're halfway there and we're about halfway through April already!   Unbelievable!

I am Guest Designing for the wonderful Sisterhood of Crafters!  What a bunch of talented ladies, I thank them for allowing me to hang with them this month!

Their chosen theme is Easter/Spring.   They welcome ANY type of craft, how fun is that?!

Stamps: (bird) SU! wildlife set
Image: The Graphics Fairy
Papers: SU! cs, K&Co dp, Creative Memories dp
Other: Nesties for felt trim, hand-dyed doily & ribbon by
Mary Duffek, (etsy shop HERE!)

Wow, this is a vivid aqua isn't it?!  lol  not so much IRL!   I really enjoy using vintage postcards on my cards. I downloaded this one from the graphics fairy, but I will be seeking some out this summer at flea markets & yardsales!

Today, we have a new Belli Challenge for you, Eggs/Bunnies (Easter theme)!  I just had to combine the challenges, that was too easy!  lol   So there's your COMBO ALERT!   Visit both challenge blogs for some incredible inspiration!

Enjoy your day!
Blessings!
