Back to Blogging!

Hello! Sorry I've been away so long. Seems like life kind of "took over" around here! For those of you who haven't heard......I'm a grandma now to an adorable Granddaughter named Irmina! Yeah....the name is a little out there but we have gotten used to it. I'm having fun shopping for girly clothes and putting together a scrapbook for her. She was born on January 2.
My DH and I went on a cruise vacation in February on the Amizon River and some of the Caribbean Islands. It was an educational and fun trip. As always it was good to come home......and start planning our next vacation!
I have finally found time to fit in some stamping though! So here are a couple of cards that I would like to share with you.
The Easter card is made with the An Egg-cellent Easter set from the new Occasions Mini. Isn't that bunny juggling the eggs just too cute?! I used Bashful Blue, So Saffron & White card stock. Designer paper an Saffron Ribbon are from the Sale-A-Bration brochure. I used the flower assorment brad which I absolutely love. Stampin' Write markers to color in the bunny image, small oval punch and word window punch and sponging.
The other card is made with the Trendy Trees set. I used Whisper White, Close to Cocoa & Tangerine Tango Card stock, Kiwi Kiss Designer Series Paper, Tangerine Tango Ribbon, the new scallop oval punch (love this!), oval punch 5/16 brown brad from the Nuetrals assortment, Tangerine Tango, Basic Brown, Kiwi Kiss & So Saffron Pads and some sponging. I really like this set & it's retro feel!
Hope you enjoy and I'll try not to be away for so long again. Check back in a couple of days.....
Thanks for stopping by!
