Easter Blessings from the Lamb of God

I just finished up an Easter card tonight for a gift tomorrow, nothing like waiting until the last day to get it accomplished, right?!  Well, in my defense, it's been pretty busy the past couple of days.

I used the Lamb of God set from Imagine That.  I have loved this set ever since I first saw it.  I only wish I had sat down and got creating with it sooner.  The fun thing about digital stamps is that you can order it right now and have it in your hands in just a few minutes via download from Kris' store and your own printer ... awesome, right?!  Kris has a special going on right now too -

EXTENDED SALE:  Buy 3 / Get 1 Free sale is good thru the end of April!!  No coupon code needed, once you have you 3 sets in your cart, simply click the "add a note to seller" and tell me which set you'd like for free!  (KD-Kits excluded from deal)

I created this Easter flower basket last night for my Mom and added the ribbon and angel today.  Then I needed a card just as fitting for the Easter holiday, so I reached for the Lamb of God image and sentiment.  :)  I sure hope she likes it as much as I did creating it.

May you have a Blessed Easter, everyone!!

Kelly's Post-Birthday Blog Candy!!

Hello there, readers!  

Yesterday was my birthday, so as a friend tells me nearly every year, "I made another trip around the sun."  
That makes me chuckle.

I had mentioned in a previous post that I would have some blog candy coming up soon, and I just had to get some other goodies together to take the picture, so here it is!! :)  
I hope you see something you might like.

I have had this Two Red Bananas set for a while now (Made in the USA by the way), and it's just so cute.  I just haven't cut it apart or inked it up, so I thought it would make a great gift for someone.  Terrific for get well or congratulations cards with the "lucky dog" or "Having a Ruff time?" sentiments.  There are a few papers in this stack that would work well with a dog image as well as some swirly, pretty girly things, so there should be a little something for everyone.  

  • Stamp set mentioned above.
  • Seasonal DPs included are from Stampin Up.  
  • Some flat backs and buttons from my stash.  
  • The ladybugs are from K&Company.
  • Lace from my stash
  • Glittery adhesive flourishes are from Recollections
  • Also included but not in photo ... Copic markers (C1, C5 & C7).

What do you need to do to win?!

  1. Comment below with your blog or email address so I can reach you if you win.
  2. Share this sweet candy on your own blog with your friends.
  3. Becoming a follower (would be great but not necessary to win).
NOTE:   Blog candy only open to US residents due to shipping costs (my apologies to my foreign friends).  :(

Thanks so much, and I hope you have a GREAT Sunday where ever you are!
