Happy Easter!

Happy Easter!  Our family is being very, very low-key today, for my daughter's sake.  No company, no visiting relatives.  We had an egg hunt this morning, which is our tradition, and the girls got their Easter baskets when they woke up. 

I had no time to make Easter cards this year.  Instead, I am sharing some cards I had done last year, before I began my blog. 



I still like these cards!  Sometimes I look back on something I'd done a while ago and say, "Blecch!", but not with these.

Hope your holiday is a blessed one, filled with happy moments.

Oh these are so great. I did not have time to get out Easter cards this year either, lol. Too busy making other cards, lol. Happy Easter. I love these two cards you did in past Easters.

Beautiful cards, my friend...I have these stamps as well and they hold such a wonderful place in my heart! I just love the sweet, heartfelt message they contain with no words.
Hope you have a joyous Easter with your family and sometimes low-key is the most relaxing and necessary way to go...

Coleen these cards are both beautiful. They capture the beauty of Easter so well. Who can resist a little bunny. I remember my Grandfather gave me a white bunny for Easter one year. I named him Peter. He was so cute. Hope you have a very Happy Easter.

Bear Hugs,
Carol :O}

I hope you had a Happy Easter Colleen, your cards are gorgeous, I do love that vintage bunny image and the grey colours are so elegant here.

Yes, wedding fever seems to have overtaken normally sane people except my husband - he really couldn't care less lol! Don't know about you, but over here there's a programme about royalty, weddings and the Middletons every day! We will all be glad when it's over lol! I just hope the wonderful weather we've had lasts. Xx

Emily Keaton said...

Yes, both of these are most definitely WINNERS!! And keepers, for sure. I remember when you made both of these last year!! I sure do like that Tender Toile set you used on both cards. Classic!!

So glad that you had a wonderful, low-key Easter!! I hope you had a chance to recharge. :)
