Chag Sameach! My first introduction to Passover was a young girl. At church one Sunday, the sermon was given by a young man from Jews for Jesus. As part of his talk, he called for a volunteer from the congregation. Naturally, I raised my hand. Little did I know that a Passover Seder had been prepared to be tasted. I don't remember much about it, but suffice it to say it was many years before I could eat raw horseradish again!
I feel privileged to have been asked to participate in this Passover Blog hop. Since Passover is a time of celebration, I thought I'd add some glimmer and sparkle to the cards today. I liked using the little hints of Bermuda Bay ink and paper with the black and white Inside the Lines Paper and Any Occasion Stamp Set from the Sale-a-Bration catalog make it feel like spring. This card one the favorite at my Stamping Bee team meeting this month, too.
This Friday's sketch challenge was rather fun. It takes very simple layers, and gives you a fun opportunity to showcase some of that designer series paper you have collected. It also gave me the chance to use the Mint Macaron Glimmer Paper and 3/8 Metallic Duo Ribbon from the Sale-a-Bration catalogs.

I'm gearing up for spring craft fair season and the bunny from the Basket Bunch bundle makes the perfect topper for treat bags. Stamp him in Basic Gray, cut him out with a coordinating thinlet, add a bit of color to the ears and his bow tie, and he's ready to go! So quick and easy. These treat bags will be front and center on my table this Saturday.
Jelly beans...love 'em? Hate 'em? And what about those black ones? I can't stand them, but my son loves them. One thing's for sure, they're a big hit with children and adults alike at spring time shows.
He is my heart; he is my soul; he is my pride and joy. This young man has dreamed of becoming a jedi, a country music star, a Montana rancher, a famous bass player, and now, aspires to write for Car and Driver. Nothing fills my heart with more happiness than just spending time with him.
Before he was born, I called him my Easter Bunny baby. Born at the equinox, I decorated his nursery with spring and Easter prints. We used to joke that the Easter Bunny wasn't bringing me chocolate that year, but a new baby. So, it seems only fitting that last weekend, I made an Easter collage.
One of my Stamping Bee team members sent me a photo of a collage she'd found on Pinterest. "Want to make this with me?" So we spent the day in my studio CASE'ing and recreating this amazing collage by Connie Tumm. It was a fun day of spent coloring chicks, bunnies, and eggs. Now, all I have to do is go find a nice frame for it!
The Basket Bunch Bundle made it easy to create this. There is literally a die for every stamp! We added a few extras from the Hey Chick Sale-a-Bration stamp set, as well as Little Cuties, Butterfly Basics, and the Project Life Date It. Go ahead; give it a try. It's just to fun not too.
