a Crafty Spring challenge

Miss Vic has challenged the Crafty Secrets DT again! This time the theme is Spring, Easter etc. I went straight to the new Easter Joy set. Isn't it perfect for Easter and Spring? I used my Creative Memories cutters to make the egg shaped cards. I made faux rick rack on the little boy bunny card with my pinking shears and card stock. I stamped the sentiment and cut out the 3 words, joys of Spring and glued them on the card. His little tail is a pom-pom, I dabbed it with glue and dipped it in glitter to give it some sparkle.

Supplies: Stamps - Easter Joy. Paper - Classic Paper Pad, GP white, scrap card stock. Ink - Ranger Distress Black Soot & Vintage Photo, Copics. Acces. - pom-pom, glitter, linen thread, buttons, Martha Stewart Gem Stickers from Wal-Mart, velvet rick rack. Tools - Creative Memories cutters and blade, Tim Holtz blending tool.This is the CM cutters I used. The egg shapes are in the centers of the hearts.
Make sure you check out the other design team members blogs to see the beauties they have come up with!

Look at this card I got at a flea market. It's so dainty and pretty! The cutout window has real lace curtains. On the inside of the card is a table with a vase of roses and a book. Gorgeous! There were so many vintage cards there, some were 3-D and cost $35.oo, WOW! Wouldn't it be nice to find some of these for cheap?!

I hope your Monday is a good one, thanks for stopping by!
