Happy Easter

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog this Sunday in March. 

Hope your weekend is going well and you had something fun or relaxing on the calendar. Mine was relatively quiet. I am going to start my Spring decorating when I finish this post. Time to take down all the Valentine decorations. 

I am part of a shower that we are giving for someone at church. I volunteered to make the favors. I found a really cute idea on Pinterest using a "perfect pair" theme. 

I bought the pear candies to place inside and now I just have to design the tag that will be on the outside. I have a really cute Lawn Fawn set that I will use for stamping. I just want to get the couple's names and wedding date on the tag. I plan on working on that layout today.  Hopefully I can figure the layout using Micrsoft Word.

Now onto my card for today. This one I created for the Splitcoaststampers color challenge #938. We were to use Flirty Flamingo, Pear Pizzazz and Crushed Curry for our color trio. Optional was to add a 4th color. I chose gorgeous grape. I think the colors have a great Spring or Easter vibe.

My card was inspired by an ad for an off-brand stamp company I saw on Facebook. I decided to recreate it with this week's colors and CottageCutz dies to make it my own.

I used the Stitched Alphabet die from CottageCutz for my Easter phrase and I cut the letters in different dotted designer paper. 

Then I layered the letters on gorgeous grape ombre specialty paper. It's from Stampin' Up. The Happy phrase is another die from CottageCutz and it also included the bunny ears. I cut the ears in flirty flamingo and the happy word in pear pizzazz cardstock.

I added the bunny feet to complete my card. This one I will send to my 8 year old great-niece. She loves to get cards from me in the mail. 

Well, that's it for me for this post. So until next time......God bless.
