Card and sketch of the week

I made this card using paper from the Creative Basics Emporium collection. The scalloped edge was made using a corner rounder (the spring idea book tells you how to do this technique, it is listed on page 27); then I took a hole puncher and punched holes in the scallops. The word "Hello" is from the "Gracious Greetings" stamp set and is stamped in Vineyard Berry ink; then I outlined it in liquid glass to make it shine!

Card and sketch of the week

I made this card using one of my favorite paper packets, That's Amore! The word friends is a rub on from the Love Letters rub on set in chocolate. The circles and hearts are dimensional elements from the Fresh Shapes collection; I colored them using a sponge that I inked with blush, tulip or chocolate (just dab your sponge on the ink pad to pick up color and then dab it on to your dimensional element); attach the colored dimensional element to your project with a glue dot.

Easter pictures

We had a fun Easter this year! My parents visited with us and brought a darling cake for Patrick. He colored eggs with his friend David and then on Easter morning opened his gifts. The bunny was good to Patrick this year, he got 3 lego sets (legos are his favorite thing on Earth), 2 new Ninetendo DS games and a DVD of the movie "Marley & Me."
