Happy Easter!

I hope all of you had a great day full of family and friends!  We spent some time with my cutie pie nephew early in the afternoon and then we went to my sister in law’s for dinner.  Tonight I’m sharing two Easter cards I made today – yes I waited til the last minute, I work better under pressure!


Here is the one I made for my nephew~


I used my Cricut for the second time in a month and cut this adorable bunny.  I used my Big Shot for the first time to emboss the background and cut the grass borders. Full supply list at the end of this post.

And this one I made for my sister-in-law~


I used a new MFT stamp set that I’ve had for about a month. I just had to make sure she got inked up before Easter was over!  The rest of the card is very old stash.  I’m having fun digging through my treasures and getting stuff used up! Full supply list at the end of this post. The layout is from this week’s Sweet Sunday Sketch.
