Crafty Cardmakers Challenge - Easter

A brand new challenge starting today at Crafty Cardmakers.  We would like to see your Easter inspired cards or projects.  Please join in the fun and check out the beautiful designs from our Design Team.  

This is my first attempt at a one layer card.  I used 120 lb cardstock from Simon Says Stamp.  It can take the coloring from Copics without bleeding through to the back.  I actually retrieved this card from the trash.  You know when you try something and it isn't working and you keep trying new things and it just keeps getting worse?  Well the little hill below the bunny was a disaster. The more I tried to save it the worse it got, so I ended up throwing it away.  I finally just cut off the bottom of the card and added the green hill to the inside which now shows through to the front.  Card saved!

Crafty Cardmaker's "Go Green" Challenge for St. Patrick's Day

Hello all!  The challenge at Crafty Cardmakers this time is to create something green in honor of St. Patrick's Day.  I chose this cute little Pure Innocence image from Heather Ellis.
 I have fond memories of St. Patrick's Day.  My mom made fantastic corned beef and cabbage and I love Irish music.  My great great grandfather was born in Ireland in 1846 and came to the USA in 1860.  I haven't had any luck tracing the family history in Ireland in this line as yet.  

It's funny, we thought our little bit of Irish Heritage came from my dad's side, but all the history on my dad's side is in the USA back to the 1600's.  Anyway, we enjoy the little bit we do have and I always buy something Irish for my 3 sisters, my niece and my daughter each Christmas.

Enough of family history!  On to the challenge - I hope you will join us this time.  Our design team has created some lovely "green" cards.  It will be fun.  Come on over.  

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

May God keep you

hollow of His hand
 Happy St. Patrick’s Day
