You shall eat the fruit of the labor of your hands; you shall be happy, and it shall go well with you. Psalm 128:2

Hi!  It has been FOR-EVER since I've created things to post online.  But I feel like I'm getting my mojo back and so I'm starting out with a few Easter cards I made yesterday and this evening.

I like this one because it really shows how versatile (and timeless) Close To My Heart products are!  The patterned paper is from the Chantilly paper pack from one or two years ago.  The washi tape (three different colors) was from last year.  I've had the cardstock AT LEAST four years and the swirl gems is at least a couple years old.  The Happy Easter stamp came out last year...I think.  The point is, it matches so nicely!!!  The flower and the other gems are the only thing not from CTMH and yet I've had them a couple of years as well!

This adorable bunny is the reason why I wanted the Happy Easter Holiday stamp set!  After I colored the egg, I added the gems.  Again, all CTMH products except the arrow and the butterfly.

Now I made this card in 15 minutes!  How, you ask?  The topper is actually a 5.25"x4" die-cut cardstock from an old package of K&Company set!  The flower, bird and butterfly already had glitter on them to make them stand out.  I just inked the edges of my card, stamped the sentiment on a scrap of cardstock and cut it out with decorative scissors and mounted it on the card with a mounting strip.  Then I just added the bling!
Well, I hope you enjoyed these cards.  Hopefully, I can get more items made now that things have quieted down in my house! 
I plan to add a layout before the holiday but incase I don't, I hope everyone has a BLESSED EASTER!  HE IS RISEN!   :-)
