Easter Greetings

Hello ladies, thank you for your visit.pewh... where did the day go??? I cant remember when i posted last time at 6 pm to my blog. I am sure most of you are running some of these errands before the Easter break just as i do. Who told me to make some of those routine visits the week before a holiday??? i must have been insane that day.


I have made my card using a photo we have up for you as inspiration on the Deep Ocean Challenge blog. Please if you have some time swing by and check it out?!

I made this card about a week prior i had the newest Easter stamps... i hope you still like it even if it does not use the very newest "stuff" :-) I had a play with watercolors. Really different, its hard for me to go light on inks, although i would like my picture to be paler and more romantic. I think thats just me that i do go for the bright intense color. I think recently i got also a bit bored with the regular things and was just looking for a change. I think you may have noticed that because i make many more 3 D items than what i used to make.

For my card i used Fabriano hot pressed watercolor paper as i am really happy with this choice i read on some blogs about the Langton paper and i am super excited to see that Sir Stampalot has it now for sale, as i was not able to locate the paper anywhere i felt comfortable to order overseas.,
I really want to give this paper a try.


For those of you who do not recognize the stamps or just recently started with Magnolia stamps.. here are the names of the images.
Tilda is Tilda with Tulips and Floral background

Even though you wanted more subtle colors, I happen to love the slightly brighter ones. They are so much more springy!

Thank you for your kind words on my blog. I hope your son's asthma gets better over time. No little boy should have to worry about breathing. I will keep him in my prayers.

Have a wonderful day and, as always, thank you for sharing. Yours is some of my very favorite art work!
