Easter cuties :-). Christ has Risen!

So I guess I am staying true to my style....either pouring with posts or complete desert....what's it been? 2 weeks? More? Well, I have not counted (not properly anyway....). I know it's been about that because Jamie has been away and I have not posted since he's been away....and I also have not done much in the realms of craft....lost my mojo a few weeks back and I have not been able to find it....just snippets of it :-)

Well, during those snippets that were found, here is what I made:

These invites were made for my really good friend Tin who is having an Easter Egg Hunt for the kids. She loves a good party! And what's a good fun party without invites?

Hope you all have a blessed Easter and keep safe if you travel during this time, but most importantly I hope that you all get a chance to think about the reason why we celebrate Easter....and I do not mean the bunnies and the chocolate eggs, as much fun as those may be! Pagan customs seem to have hi-jacked all of the Christian holidays, and Easter is no exception. But if it was not for Christ coming and dying on the cross on Easter Sunday all those years ago, we would not be celebrating Easter. So I just hope that as you celebrate this holy time, you take the time to think of Christ's great sacrifice, made so that we could all have eternal life.

In Romania, at least back when I was growing up, Easter was more Christ centered. As we sat at the table to share in the Easter meal we had a saying as we broke the red eggs, one person said "Christ has risen" and the other one said "indeed He has risen". 

So, my friends, Christ has risen! And hope you have a blessed Easter season.


For those of you that do not know, January through March is Sale-a-Bration Season at Stampin Up. For every $50 spent you get to choose a free product from the Sale-a-Bration brochure! And I have to say, this year it is pretty sweet!!! There's a TON of super cute super fun products to choose from! I have to admit that I pretty much own all of them (just don't do the math), and some I absolutely LOVE!

So here are some projects I made using some Sale-a-Bration goodies. I went slightly crazy with the Feelins Sentimental Set! I have to say it was my no.1 when I saw the brochure! Absolutely love it!!! And I thought it would go GREAT with the retired Mocha Morning DSP. And it does :-). I always loved brown in combination with different colours, but I am really starting to love Crumb Cake and Vanilla with Chocolate Chip and Early Espresso!

 This card was made with the Sycamore Street DSP and Button and Ribbon Pack and the Patterned Ocassions Stamp Set. All free during Sale a Bration!!
And this is how it all starts.....slightly messy, but it comes together rather quickly:
 Not using Sale-a-Bration goodies, but I really like the opening of this card! And fairly easy to do too.

I have another very cute post to do soon....knowing me it might even be today :-). Although I do need to go and volunteer at Alina's school.


Well, it seems to be true that I either write a few posts in a row or I don't write any for ages....Being more consistent should have been on my new year resolution list. But life and kids get in the way....

Anyway, this was probably worth the wait.

One of my really good friends, Sina, is having her third girl in a few weeks. I had no idea what to get her, because, really, what do you get for someone who already has 2 other girls??? I am sure she still has things in her cupboards that her girls never wore or wore a couple of times.....and toys, really? I don't think she would appreciate the clutter :-)

Well, I thought I would make her baby announcement cards. So I asked her what colours she would like and what kind of image and this is what I came up with! I was IN LOVE! I said to her that if I was pregnant I would think twice before actually giving them to her. I liked them that much! Well, seeing as I am not pregnant, and even if, there would be a 50% 50% chance of needing the pink and purple colours, I reluctantly gave her the cards.......I was super happy she liked them! I just hope she gets the time to actually mail them! It's busy enough with 2, let alone adding a baby to that mix.
And here is the inside: 

Hope you like these cute Baby cards, I know I really enjoyed making them!
