Good Morning to you all!! I do apologize for not being here last week. I fractured my ankle bone and it has taken awhile to get use to being in a boot that does not let your ankle and part of your foot move. I am pigeon toed so keeping my foot straight is more painful then someone that has feet that actually goes straight. I am so lucky that I have to keep this thing on for five weeks and then see if it fused back together or have to have surgery on it. It has been kicked several times by my kids and my dog so I hope that is not going to be a problem.

I love doing Easel Cards. Making them at first was hard but now they are as easy as just making a normal one. Our great sponsor this week is Fred, She Said Designs. The way you will get your images for now is through e-mail. The store is temporarily closed but you will see their images. I love the one that they let me use for this challenge. It's called "Daisies and Ladybugs." The image has a daisy chain and ladybugs by their selves or they are together. I used the chain for creating half a frame and one flower in the corner. It's easier to show you then tell you. Here is the prize they are giving and then I will show you my card.

Here is the card using "Daisies and Ladybugs" but I called the card Thank You My Friend.

I brightened the picture up so you could see how vibrant the colors look on this card. I think the daisy chain turned out really good. The background actually has big daisies on it but after I finished the card you couldn't see that very clear. You however can see the daisies on the inside of the card. Here are the items I used to make this beautiful Thank You card.

Paper -- K&Company

Thank You for stopping by this week and I really hope you enjoyed the card. Take a chance with your card and head on over to Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog and enter. See you next week (if nothing happens LOL).

Having a good morning so far? I hope so. I'm enjoying this day because there is a chance of rain everyday this coming week. It rained almost everyday last week. My husband missed two days of work last week because of lightning. I was watching my great nieces and nephew when one of the worst storms came through here. My one great nice Emmy hates storms so I told her the story that I grew up with. I told her that when it thundered it was angels bowling and getting a strike. She said it after me and then said no I think they are falling down. It's amazing what they come up with but I kept her concentrated on something else and she didn't focus on the storm at all. Things you do for the little ones.

Let's get the baker's twine. I have heard of this for scrapbooking but never used it. Didn't really know what to do with it. I should have checked you tube. Bugaboo Digi Stamps is our great sponsor this week. They are currently working on their home page but you can still shop their. Another great thing is they have Freebie Friday. You can sign up for their newsletter or just visit there every Friday. I definitely love the digital stamp they let me use. It is called Edward Springtime. The elephant in the image was what drew me in on this one. Let me tell you about the great prize they are giving.

I'm going to show you my card now with the stamp called "Edward Springtime."

Is this not the cutest thing that you have ever seen. I didn't have little chicks to add on to the card. The elephant that I had was bigger then the one on the card so they are with other friends. I just wanted every animal to have a friend to go with them. it still looks OK though. I will tell you the items that I used to make this cute card.

Happy Easter!! I hope your holiday weekend has been going good and hope you get to spend today with family and friends. Most of our family is sick with some kind of virus so everyone stayed home. My kids treated it like it was just another day and spent time with their friends. My husband was the one that was sick in our family. I know I will have it before this is all done.

Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps And More is sponsoring our challenge this week. I hope you didn't miss the reveal of all the new Easter images she has in her store. There are 19 new images and they are very pretty. Hope you seen the reveal but if you didn't you can go to Robyn's store and see them. Another great thing is that the whole month of April we are having a sale that gives you 40% off all images. There is a lot of great things going on at the store. 

Since we could use one of Robyn's images for this Pastel Colors challenge I used the one called "Roses With All Our Prayers." I new I wanted the roses to be pastel in color and some flowered paper to go with it. I used a light colored purple cardstock to use with the saying and the images. Then I added an angel since it seemed like it was a sympathy card. So here is the prize Robyn is giving to the one lucky winner.

3 Images

Here is "Roses With All Our Prayers"

I do hope you like the card. I tried to get all the purples the same color. I think I did a good job at doing that. So here is my items that's on the card.
