Happy Easter and a blog challenge card!

A Four Day 'Break'! Yippee!

I want to stop everything and just stamp...but that isn't possible...but I am going to carve out some time tomorrow--I've promised myself!!

I did want to post this challenge card for my SBS sisters...it was a challenge on my SBS sistah, Gina's blog, The Card Kabin, for the month of March and I have been just aching to try it out...everyone who has made a card seemed to love it! So did I! I liked the Square-ness of the card, with the circle of the image added. As you can see, I kept closely to the sketch for this one...I think I'll try a few more too, just for fun! If you are not one of my SBS sisters who will all be making one for our challenge anyway, why don't you try it too? Let me know in a comment that you did this sketch and link your card...I may just have a little something to thank you for sharing ;) oh, and check out Gina's blog, why don't you? Great card creations over there!

I wanted to make a card for my mom...we lost my dad a year ago this Easter Sunday (March 23) and I know she will be so sad. I wanted something bright and cheery and the sketch card seemed to fit the bill!! The ribbon is from a prize that Suzann sent me for last month's sketch and the cardstock and DP is a mix of SU and scraps. The image is from Gina K and I used my lovely Copics to color it...the card just cried out for bling, so I added some jewels that Amber sent me in her PIF :) Love that pass it forward idea!!

Well, better go! My DH is making dinner and I have a meeting at church tonight...be blessed and I PROMISE to show you some stuff this weekend!

He is Risen!
