Hoppy Easter

Talk about a tired toopee...I have been doing a lot of overtime lately. Today I worked another 8 hours. Hey I gotta do something to support my rubba addiction. It was also very warm today, about 79 degrees. We sure have been having weird weather lately. It is probably the cause of all the flus and sicknesses that have scattered across this city. The Bradford Pear trees are blooming along with so many other flowered trees and bushes here. It is just breathtaking. I live in the part of town where it is noted to have people flocking this time of year just to see how beautiful, with the dogwoods, crepe myrtles, daffodils, pansys, etc. blooming.

Okay, as for this card, I used pink card stock as a base and SU's designer series Spring Fling patterned paper for the background. The pink satin ribbon I bought from Flourishes. The hat pin, pearls and crystals came from SU's Pretties Kit. I used oval Nestabilities and the sentiment is from High Hopes Stamps. The flowers came from a bunch I bought at AC Moore and I put Swarovski Crystal in the middle of each flower to give it some more bling.

There will be more Easter Cards coming soon. Thanks for your visit. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend :)

This card is as cute as a new baby chick! I love the pinks and yellows. The flowery paper is perfect for a backdrop in enhancing the yellow flower embellishments and the beaded hatpin. Lovely, just lovely. I can't wait to see your other Easter creations.
