Happy Easter !!

Happy Easter Everyone, I hope that everyone has a beautiful Easter with friends and family. I will be heading over to my Aunt's house to celebrate Easter with Family. I'm bringing dessert which I'm really glad I made two because my dog decided to lick her approval on one of the pecan pies. I don't think that would have gone over too well with the family. So here is an Easter card that I did using Heartfelt Creations stamps and dies plus I used some Biblical sayings  from Our Daily Bread Designs as well. Hope You have a Great Easter!!

Waiting is almost over.....

The waiting is almost over... tomorrow is the day that the Heartfelt Creations Design Team will be announced. I'm really anxious about this is because it's my first time I tried out for a design team and I tend question my ability lots. Another sad note about this week for me is that it's my 3 year anniversary on Saturday when I loss my husband to Cancer. So I'm hoping that I will have some very exciting news to tell you about! Please keep your fingers cross for me and I will show you my  cards that I sent down to be judged.
 Here is Card #1 plus the inside of the card.

Tomorrow I will show you Card #2.
