The reason for my lack of blogging lately is I have been working on my Easter cards and finishing Mum and Dad's calendar (Paul's is still a work in progress....). I wasn't planning on posting my Easter cards just yet, by the Stampin' Royalty challenge this week is EASTER, so I thought, why not.
I send Easter cards with a photo of Miss Luana to immediate family and godparents each year, as I figure then they at least get semi-regular photos of our princess. As I make quite a few, I like to keep them simple! The gorgeous striped ribbon from the retired Sweet Shop Ribbon Bundle provided the inspiration this year - but I didn't have enough to make all the cards, so I pulled out the Certainly Celery from the Ribbon Bundle that was available last year. Not a bad substitute, but I did like the stripes... You can't see it in this photo, but the strip of Almost Amethsyt DSP on the inside of the card has been punched with the scallop edge punch.
Here are the cards that Miss Luana made for her grandparents (with very little assistance):
And check out the Easter page I made a few weeks ago here for an Inkspirations Colour Challenge - it made the special mention group!!
Wishing you a wonderful Easter with your families - can't wait to see mine!!
