Easter Wishes


Today is my 1st post as a Design team member for “The Paper Shelter”  & I must say it’s a happy day for me !!! This group of ladies have gone above & beyond help to welcome a “newbie” on board. Shirley, our A team leader is a jewel !!! She’s been so patient & helpful to me & I’m sure I’ve been driving her to drinking with my endless questions!!! If all goes well this will post TOMORROW morning (the 14th) as it’s supposed to & I won’t be a day early. Fingers crossed !!!
My card is for the A team Challenge #103 – “Easter” … Hop on over & see what my DT sisters have made for your inspiration …
I hope you will join in our challenge this week where the prize is $30 to spend in the Paper Shelter store if you use one of their images or 3 digi's of your choice if you use any other image…

The Paper Shelter has so many great images to choose from. I’ve picked this cute little “Sweet Gardener” for my Easter card … Not exactly an Easter image but with the cute little basket in her hand I’m sure she’s on her way to hunt a few eggs & with the “Easter Wishes" sign I think it works quite well. I added a couple of tiny chain links so the sign even swings.  I saw this sign used by Paula awhile back & thought it worked perfectly on this card.  I love using stamps & dies different ways than they may be intended. She’s cut out with a Spellbinders Floral Ovals die.

The lamp post & sign are Marianne dies #LRO191 & the tiny flower on the bottom of it is from a Cheery Lynn build a flower embellishment #2 die. The spikey flowers I made with a strip of paper & a Cheery Lynn Fringe die & inked the edges. LOVE those dies !!! I got them from Darlene at Dutch Paper Crafts

Finished off with a little “Loopy Bow”, a WOC rose, a few pearls & called it done !!!
