Happy Easter! Fun things to show you!!

First off, Happy Easter! I won't be blog hopping today, but I thought I would post in case anyone is blog hopping over to my site! If you haven't entered my blog candy draw, please do so by commenting on Friday's post.

Yesterday I posted a card that I made for Sharon's funny card challenge. Today I want to show you the amazing happy mail that I received on Thursday from my very good blogging friend Sharon. Sharon is so talented! Her cards are gorgeous! She is a whiz with the Cricut. I recently won some blog candy from her. First and foremost, look at the GORGEOUS card that she sent to me!


Look at this Cricut Design Studio work! She designed the "friends" to cut out in the ric rac piece, and then she designed a scalloped shadow for the ric rac. Wow! The heart borders are fantastic too! I have a question to ask . . . does everyone but me use wire edged ribbon? I NEVER buy wire edged ribbon, and now I'm wondering why I don't, because the black and white gingham ribbon is wire edged, and it's fantastic! Plus, when I took the card out of the envelope, I was able to poof the bow right back up the way it's supposed to be! Cool!

Now look at the goodies I got from Sharon! Wow! I'm telling you, I am the luckiest lady in the blogging world, because I get so many wonderful items from my friends! There is a bag of buttons and pins, a bag of dew drops (these are so pretty -- Sharon used them in the middle of the hearts on the card that she made for me!), GORGEOUS Primas (will you just look at those colors!), My Mind's Eye "this and that" frames (these are fantastic when doing quick scrapbook pages!), and two of the cutest classic Winnie the Pooh sticker sheets. Thank you SO MUCH Sharon! Wow!

On Friday, I got this amazing birthday card from one of my SBS2 sisters, Kathleen! Kathleen is so talented, and it's wonderful to see one of her cards in person! This card is a 6x6 square folded in half! I love the size, and I'm going to have to make this size card myself. Kathleen LOVES cupcakes, and this card showcases them perfectly! (I love cupcakes too!) Thank you so much Kathleen! I love this card!

Happy Easter to you all! Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Easter Carol. You are one lucky lady. I have the Cricut Design studio but I haven't created anything as nice as your friends rick rack card. That's fabulous. I really need to have a proper play with mine I think!

I love the cupcake card too, looks good enough to eat! Lol.

Have fun playing with your new goodies. I love those Pooh Bears, you can't not like Pooh Bear can you, he's the best.

Have a good Easter.
