Easter Bunny Springy Card

Hello and happy Wednesday!!  It seems like forever since I actually posted something.  So, hopefully the next few cards I have made and will post over the next few days will make up for it.  

I was asked a few days ago, by some ladies at church, if I would be willing to do a card workshop for a Super Saturday craft day they were having.  I was so honored and thrilled!  I told them I would love to do it.  They wanted a few sample cards for everyone to see the kind of cards we would be making.  This is one of those cards.  I just love how the colors turned out!

What do you think?

Link-Up Party and St. Patrick's Day

Hey everyone!

I'm so excited. It's time for another LINK-UP PARTY!!! Just to clarify (since I've had a few questions about it) ANYONE and EVERYONE can link up here. I would love to see everyone's recent projects! Link up at the bottom of this post. (Please limit your submissions to 1 or 2)

Remember: You can link up any time between today and Sunday night. Then, VOTING goes all day Monday and ends on Tuesday at noon (EST).

Also, I want everyone to remember that this really isn't a competition. I would say that we all just love getting to see what everyone has been up to, and I hope that these link-up parties inspire you to get creative. :-)

Here is my submission this week (we'll call it a "recipe", sort-of, lol). I wish it was St. Patrick's Day themed but I've just been so busy! I just absolutely love strawberries...and you know what makes them even better????? CHOCOLATE.

 
By the way, here is a cute picture of my daughter on the beach in Florida. I just had to post it. Isn't she adorable?? Oh how I miss the warm weather, the beach, having my husband home from school, and the list could go on and on...


I'm not requiring it, but I would love it if you grabbed my Link-up button below and placed it in your post that you linked up. This helps others to see it and come participate in the link-up party! Thanks!
