I have another card to share with you this week. The image is called Spring Medley and is the April stamp of the month from "From the Heart Stamps". You can find the information to play along here. Each month that you play, the following month you will get a free digital stamp! Faith has some wonderful digital images....be sure to check them out!   
The papers I used were all from Stampin' UP. Regal Rose, So Saffron, Lovely Lilac, and Wild Wasabi, along with a piece of designer paper. The wonderful little pink flower was done using the Flower & Leaf trio from MFT, along with Blueprints 3 to fancy up the inside of my card. Coloring was done using Y02,Y11,Y13,E35,YG11,YG13,YG17,RV02,RV10,RV21,BV00,BV02 and BV04 Copics. Below is what the inside of my card looked like.
Until next time...

 It was a beautiful day here in New England today...and it's finally spring!  I always look forward to the spring.....it's like a new awakening after the long, very bitter cold winter we had this year.  With spring comes Easter. We will be getting ready for our annual Easter egg hunt that my granddaughters really look forward to each year, then all get together and have a wonderful Easter family dinner.
This is the Easter card I will be mailing out to my sister this year.  She lives in Oregon and won't be able to join us.

The bright yellow polka dot note card is by Amuse. All other papers were taken from my
miscellaneous scrap bin. Also used are MFT's Fishtail Flags Stax, Mini Tabs, and Upsy Daisy Die-namics. I added a bit of bling and fine white glitter to the bunny.

Whatever your plans happen to be, I wish you all a wonderful, joyous Easter!

It's always nice to have a few birthday cards on hand and many people have trouble with making "man cards" so I decided to design a birthday card for a guy.
My father always loved the older classic cars and I believe I got my appreciation of older cars from him. I'm sure that's why I liked this set called Classic Convertibles from Stampin UP!

It's now a retired set, but still a classic!

The weathered background look was created using light yellow paper, a Scor-Pal, and both a light and darker shade of brown ink.  It's a nice weathered look and is very easy! The instructions can be found over on Gina K's Stamp TV!

All paper and inks used in making this card were all from SU. Also used were MFT's Star Stax, and some small bronze brads for the corners.
