Easter Bunnies

One final little banner for Easter ~ this one was made for Lake Tahoe Holidays here in South Lake Tahoe. I loved working with my new little bunny die from Papertrey. I think the next one I make like this, I’m going to use the ribbon bows as their cottontails. Hooking up with How Sweet the Sound for Pink Easter Saturday.

A Little Bit Of Easter

I have a few more Easter items to share before Easter has come and gone. I don’t know about you ~ but it really sneaked up on me this year.

A couple of banners ~ this is one of my favorites. Click on the photo to bring up bigger if  you would like. The trims on the top of the banner are not all the same – I loved mixing them up and the dusty colored buttons – love them!

And this one ~ a little different look for me and I love all the bright colorful retro Easter images. Reminds me of the cards we received when I was a little girl

I started out making it for the shop Lake Tahoe Holidays here in town, but could not part with it. Older collaged paper with the sweetest images, glitter green letters spelling out “SPRING”, beautiful vintage trim and these gorgeous buttons from the Classic Kraft Collection from Papertrey.

I have a few more items to share, but will save for another post. I’m hooking up to Beverly’s Blog Shop at How Sweet the Sound and also Creative Spark.  I think they both start around noon PST, so I’ll be hooked up later today -Great Stuff.

Take care

Erin Go Bragh for Pink Saturday

Hooking up with Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for St. Patrick’s Day Pink Saturday. Pop on over and check out all the beautiful blogs and talented men and women that share their lovely creations, their homes, their gardens, their lives. A new to me blog I visited this week is Michele’s The Nest at Finch Rest ~ a very beautiful blog with a lovely collection of Shamrock china. Take a moment and stop by to visit her ~ you will not be disappointed.

Just a simple little banner (and yes, I now know that Erin go Bragh is spelled this way – NOT how I have it on the banner – which is being corrected post haste!! Made for Lake Tahoe Holidays here in town.

Kiss Me ~ I’m Irish

Actually I only have a little Irish in me and that’s only what I’ve been told – no proof at all.Thought maybe it was time to share some of my St. Patrick’s Day creations before the day has come and gone ~ hence the title of this post comes from this card.

The stamps I used are new to me from Studio G – I bought 2 sets and am loving all the little options. A little paint ~ a little glitter on this one below.

100_6347 (640x535)

This was a fun banner to make ~ paper sacks, paper doilies, vintage images, more paint and glitter, rhinestones, chipboard, etc. And the best part ~ using up bits and pieces of paper – still mucking through it all!

I think I’ll stop here – I’ve a few more but seems it would be good to make another post out of them as I’m so prolific at posting *grin*

Take care and thanks for stopping by
