Guest Design - Sweet Easter

This is my final week as guest designer for MFP Simple Salutations Challenge.  I've loved being a guest designer for the hostess - Melissa.  She makes such adorable cards, and she spends a lot of time leaving love on blogs.  Nice!  These are always fun challenges....and there's always a chance to win some really great mini-stamps! 

This week's challenge is Anything Goes.  The "Anything Goes" challenge always bring a smile to my face because my first thought is, "hey, I can do that!"  Silly, silly Karen!

The first card posted is my challenge entry into MFP Simple Salutations this week.  I'm also entering this into Paper Girls Challenge blog.  The photo to the left is their photo inspiration.  I was inspired by the splotches of color, the natural string, and the tag shape to make this Easter card.  The tag is a gift card holder, and I'll be putting in an iTunes gift card to send to my son for Easter.  He's at advanced training in Oklahoma for the U.S. Army, and this will be our first Easter apart.  I am super proud of him, and I miss him a great deal.  It was hard to get a good picture because I used liquid pearls to create my splotches of color on the tag, and it's VERY shiny!

The next card is in honor of the host of MFP Simple Saluations - Melissa, who is very sweet and always leaves the nicest comments.  This is the card for my guest design spot.  The stamps used on both of these cards are from Marks Finest Papers.

Craftily yours,

  1. Thank for the nice comments about my nice comments. Like the layers & sparkle of your Easter card. The bird house card has 2 of my fav colors blue & yellow and I like birds as well as the way you colored the card. Both cards made me smile. Thank you for Guest Designing & entering MFP Simple Salutations Anything Goes Challenge.
