Hello! Happy Easter to all of you!! I hope that everyone is having a wonderful day spent with family and friends. We spent Easter with my parents and after church we went to the Wedgwood Cove restaurant for the Easter brunch buffet. The restaurant is beautiful and over looks the lake and the food was SO yummy!!! Plus an added bonus--no dishes to wash--lol!! The boys did their Easter baskets and then later this afternoon we had an Easter egg hunt. Our youngest son had his basket and was ready to go!! LOL!! Our oldest son will be 18 in about a month so I told him he still had to go out and find Easter eggs (this will be his last year) and he was a pretty good sport about it. *wink* It seems like just yesterday he was a little guy and so excited about the Easter Bunny...
For today I have an Easter card to share with you that I made for my parents. With the sentiment you could actually use this card for several occasions. The stamps and the printed images are both from Crafty Secrets. I used the Angel Blessings stamp set and Love Mail Creative Scraps. To start I stamped the image of the three little cherubs using Rich Cooca ink and then started to add color to their faces and the ribbon using Copic Markers. Next I added just a little hint of blue to the wings.Then I carefully cut the image out using a craft knife.I wanted to try and match the look of the stamped image to the Creative Scraps image so I inked the entire piece with Antique Linen Distress Ink.I used two if the images with the roses and doves from the Love Mail Creative Scraps and layered the roses and the doves. Then I distressed the edges and added the image of the cherubs to the top. For the background paper I stamped the cross two times on to the paper and a third time on a scrap piece of paper and cut out the cross. For a little sparkle I added some diamond and gold stickles.I stamped the sentiment in the upper corner and then added some bling from Want2Scrap. I used Baby Blue Rhinestones and LeCreme Baby Pearls from Want2Scrap. All of the cardstock is from Discount Cardstock.
