The EASTER is made from a SU stamp called Alphabits. I punched each letter out with a 1/4" circle punch. The Happy is actually a Happy Birthday stamp that I masked to get just the Happy part.

My boys went fishing today so I had some time to myself. Started the morning grading papers. (Best to get it out of the way so I can enjoy the rest of the weekend.) Had a baby shower to attend. My friend liked the card I made here. I came home, watched a movie, visited some wonderful blogs, gathered some inspiration, and started to make some cards. Here is the beginning of my creative process. I wanted to make some Easter cards. I started by pulling out some pastels but it wasn't working for me. I bought some Recollections Craft Cardstock a few weeks ago and decided to use natural colors- brown, blue, and green. I chose the ribbon with brown and blue flowers. I got the stamp this past fall when my DH took me away for a weekend and we found this cute little craft store in Franklin, NC. It is an Inkadinkadoo stamp. After cutting the paper to size and using my gypsy & cricut to cut tags from the TBBM cart I was ready to assemble. Here is the card. After putting the basic design together I decided to add the flowers cut from the Paisley cart. I cut them out at 1.5" and at 1". I brushed all of them with the brown ink and layered three together, punched with my crop-a-dile, and held with a brad. The tag is topped with a small piece of brown ribbon.
