I'm so ready for warm weather!!!

This is one of the cards I used in my last card class. I love orange and pink together. They look so bright and cheery together. Reminds me that spring should be here soon. The high today here might reach 45. The forecast for tomorrow morning is 28!!! On Easter morning!!! So my girls will have to wear a coat over there outfits. Last weekend my hubby told me Easter was this weekend. I thought I had until next weekend to get my girls baskets ready. NOT!! So Jerry and I are going to go out today and brave the crowds to get them a basket. I know they are 15 and 13 but I will probably give them a basket when they are married with kids. I even make one for my hubby. Their basket will not be that big this year cause we just got them both new cell phones and upgraded to unlimited family texting (we were tired of fussing over the bill every month) so it will have candy and makeup in it. I know I loved getting baskets when I was young so I plan to make my girls feel special too!! Anyways back to the card. I used the 5-petal punch and cut it apart to make the leaves. I had seen several crafters cut the flower apart on SC and on blogs so I thought I would give it a try. I like the how it turned out and will use it again.

Supplies I used:

So Many Scallops, Flannel Background Stamps
Pixie Pink, Wild Wasabi Ink
Only Orange, Passion Pink, Wild Wasabi Card Stock
5-Petal Punch, Scallop Punch

I worked on yesterday on Eater pails for my Sunday School class. I had picked up the pails at Wal-mart a few weeks ago and picked up the candy last night. The pails where only a dollar and I only have four preschooler so what a deal!! I have one boy and three girls (poor guy) so of course I got all the girls pink. I found peek bunny bubbles at the dollar store this week aren’t they adorable!!! They were in a package of three for a dollar. I got them a Reese bunny because don’t all baskets need to have a chocolate bunny in them? The cards measure 3 x 3 ¾.

Supplies I used:

A Good Egg set
Close to Cocoa Ink
Pretty in Pink, Barely Banana, Certain Celery, Pale Plum Card Stock
Marvy Scallop Punches, Su Ribbon

Thanks for Visiting!! Have a great Weekend!!!
