Fabulous Easter Cards for Friday

Welcome to this week's edition of Fabulous Friday! The Sisters are showcasing Easter Cards this week. My family lives far away and we send out Easter Cards most every year. First up is Jacque--
Really like this little bunny from the So Cute stamp set and the way the Designer Series Paper matches. Very fun! Here is the link to Jacque's blog so you can go check it out.

Next up is Debbie--

 Debbie was very creative using her BigShot! You can find out all of the punches and dies she used to to make her Bunny on her blog.

Here is Rachel's Easter card--

This little bird just begs for sweet Easter wishes! Find out more about Rachel's card and the technique she used here.

Lastly is my submission for this week--

This card was a swap at my Downline Meeting last week. Katie ( said she copied it from Jackie Topa's blog ( Isn't it the cutest??
   I have been missing the last couple of weeks because we are in the middle of a major bathroom remodel...not quite done yet, but we are very close! Bathroom #1 is new a porcelain tile floor, Bathroom #2 is a TOTAL gut, knocked down 2 walls (read lots of drywall dust), Bathroom #3 was just a few rough in pipes in the basement floor, now it's a real live bathroom with a toilet and everything--my customers will appreciate this. I will post some pictures when we are completely done.

Thank you for stopping by this week! The Sisters are taking next week off to spend time with our families.

Bring On the Cake!

If you make a lot of cards, you probably make a lot of birthday cards and thank you cards.  Those are the two that I make the most, with birthday cards by far taking the lead.  And I make birthday cards for all ages, young and old, male and female.  So when I saw the Bring On the Cake stamp set in the Occasions Mini Catalog, I knew right away that I just had to have it!  This set is a great birthday greeting set with stamps for any type of birthday!  Don't forget that there are only three more weeks to get your hands on this set as the  Occasion Mini Catalog expires on April 30th!

As you can see by Debbie's birthday card, this is a great set for making masculine cards!

 Check out Debbie's blog for details on how she made this great card!

My card can be used for kids and teens and although from the same stamp set, has a completely different look than Debbie's.

Check out my blog (Jacque) for a list of supplies used to make this card.

Rachel and I must be thinking alike alot lately.  She used the same stamp, colors and designer series paper.  Check out her blog for more details.

Karla is still in the midst of a home renovation and must be having major stamping withdrawals.  We miss her and hope to see her back with us in a few more weeks!!

Have a wonderful week and thanks so much for stopping by to see us!!

Jacque, Debbie, Karla and Rachel!

Spring is Blossoming... isn't it Fabulous?!

Welcome to another edition of Fabulous Friday - this week we are featuring products from the new "Spring is Blossoming" promotion that Stampin' Up! is having for the month of April.  I don't know what the weather's like where you live, but here in Central Virginia we are seeing signs of Spring everywhere... daffodils are blooming, everything's turning green again and the birds are chirping - I love it!

To celebrate the return of Spring, Stampin' up! is allowing us the opportunity to earn for free (as a hostess of a qualifying $350+ workshop) or purchase (with a qualifying $20 order) two sneak peek items from the upcoming 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog that will debut in July.  How cool is that?!  What are these items?  Well, they are a gorgeous pack of designer series paper (DSP) called Paisley Petals and a fun stamp set that coordinates with our XL decorative label punch called Four Frames.  Here are some samples for your inspiration... happy Spring!

First up is this wonderful creation by Jacque Craig.  How gorgeous is this card?!  Be sure and visit her blog to find out more!

Next we have this fabulous project designed by Rachel Yurkanin.  You can see so many of the beautiful designer papers in her card.  She has all the information about it on her blog so be sure and check it out!

Here is my project for this week.  It's been a while since I did a scrapbook page so I decided to go for it... I love this DSP and I know you will, too!  Please visit my blog for all the details.

Karla Anders is in the midst of a major home renovation so is taking a few weeks off... but don't worry, she'll be back soon!  Thanks so much for stopping by today - we hope you are inspired by our projects and take advantage of the "Spring is Blossoming" sneak peek opportunity this month!  Have a wonderful weekend!
