Easter Cards -Quick and Easy

Hi Dreamers!
I spent the day yesterday at a card making event sponsored by, Suzanne Everett. My friend, Sharon, and I spent the day making 14 cards.  You have to hustle a bit to get them done, but it sure was fun!  We did not make any Easter cards, but that is fine as I had finished my Easter cards this week.  I thought I would share the Easter cards I made.  I had quite a few to make and wanted to make them "quick and easy".  Take a look.




I had all these tulips in my already stamped box.  I just pulled them out and added some layers, ribbon, and Easter Sentiments.   Here is a close up of one.  I did a bit of distressing on this one with Vintage Photo Distress ink.





This batch was made with papers and some pre-cut shapes from a Crate Paper set.  I had a pack of Easter Rub-ons from My Sentiments Exactly.  I added the rub-ons to the pre-cut shapes...and instant cards!  The Easter blessing is made with a piece of DP from Stampin' up---the colors worked well with the Crate Paper pre-cuts.








I stamped some tulips and added some papers from Stampin' up.  






This was a rub-on.  The papers are all from Stampin' Up.






So, I was able to get these cards done in time.   The cards that have to be mailed went out on Friday.   The rest will be hand delivered.

And, now how about a few Challenges for my Quick and Easy Easter Cards!!

Today, I am doing some blogging, as you can see.  And, catching up with the laundry...how exciting!.  Check back tomorrow for  Paris in the Spring "Time".  This is a project made with Stampsmith Stamps and spring colors.   Have a great weekend!  Love ya.
Karen
