He is Risen!

The angel said to the woman, "Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified.  He is not here; he has risen, just as he said.  Come and see the place where he lay.  Then go quickly and tell his disciples:  He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee."  (Matthew 28: 5-7)

Thank God that we had Good Friday, and now Easter!  Easter blessings to all of you!  I prepared a simple card for Easter earlier this month: 

You can see the details a tiny bit better in the photo below.  I used Kinda Eclectic, Work of Art,  and  Hardwood for my stamp sets, although the card only took a few moments to prepare.  When you stamp with Hardwood, the board lines are set at about 5/8" apart, perfect to form the cross.  

I'm sorry the picture isn't better!

Then, since I'm still in love with these Easter M&M treats and the berry basket die, I had to create an assortment of fun Easter treat baskets yet.  You'd think I would be getting sick of them by now!! (*edited to add:  I used an assortment of c/s colors, a full sheet of each for each basket, plus the Berry Basket die, Item number #137366, found on page 21 in the Occasions Catalog.)

Unfortunately I'm out of the bunny eggs, but I have plans for Mother's day seed baskets now!!  Can you see it ... ?!

3D Prom Date Request

My son had to get creative in his request for a date for the prom so I decided to help him.  He rolled his eyes as I got to work, but in the end, loved my idea! 

This is the same basket that we made for my 3D Easter Treats class this week but I customized it for the occasion!  Don't you love the M&M Easter egg?!  So adorable!  Then, using the back cardboard that comes in the DSP packages, I stamped and cut out two garden picks using the Handpicked framelits and the From the Garden stamp set.  I individually mounted the letters from the Designer Type photopolymer stamp set -- unfortunately that was one of the monthly releases this past year that is already sold out.  I couldn't find a "?" so I had to hand-write it in.

 (I just realized that I used a retired Little Stems sizzlet -- sorry!  You can substitute the leaf from the Bird Builder Punch f you don't have this sizzlet!)

So ... the pink Easter egg holds his handwritten, "... go to Prom with me?!"  And she said ... yes!!

Now I guess we have to start fitting for tuxes etc.  Oh well!  I'm excited for him!!

Have a wonderful day and ... get creative!!
