It's freezing here. Maybe that's why I'm showing you some Easter cards; to warm up.

Good morning everyone! I hope you all are or will have a FABULOUS DAY Saturday. Here
in Milford, Ohio where I live, its freezing right now outside. Although quite a sight to
see; all this new snow we received Thursday. I love the snow. It's very tranquil and peaceful.
When I was a kid sled riding was my thing, building snowman not so much. You see I
have an older brother and so I had to keep moving {sled riding} or else I would get zinged in the
head with a nice ole snowball...OUCH!

So snowmen we out of the question because I had to be quicker than he was.

 So the other night I created 2 new cards; Easter cards.  I hope you like them.
The first one is called "Happy Easter Weave Card"


 As you can see now why I call it the weave card.  I used my Cricut Expression with the 'Beyond Birthdays' cartridge to make the eggs, Cricut cartridge 'Storybook' for the word "HAPPY", and 'Walk in My Garden' cartridge for the yellow daisy.
I took purple strips all the same size and with the one, I used that to weave in and out of the
eggs. I had cut on the back of each egg to make tiny slits.  Also I wanted to add a little something up at the top right near the word "HAPPY", it just looked to bare to me.  So what I did was used my Krylon 18kt GOLD Leafing Pen to put little dots on the top right-hand corner.
You can see on the second pic the gold dots better as you can also see the inside of the card {first picture} which also has the gold dots on the corners.

The next card I did is entitled "Rabbit and a Rose".
This card is layered FOUR times, and layered three times inside.  The grass on this card is
made using Doodle Bug green flock.  The rest of the Rabbit was colored using Copic Sketch Markers.

I do hope you have enjoyed looking at my cards, thank you for stopping by! 
STAY WARM!!!
