Have a Prickly Pear Easter

Monday, March 30, 2015
Good Morning Friends!!

It’s been a long and crazy couple of weeks with a lot going on in my neck of the woods.  I don’t know about you but I’m sure ready for some warmer weather to come. Brad and I just got back from a Caribbean cruise and I sure enjoyed the long days and warm sun. It was a well needed break from the demands of life.

Today was Palm Sunday and next week is Easter Sunday. My… how time flies these days. Today I am here with a Prickley Pear card to share with you.

I just love these sweet vintage bird stamps Prickley Pear has. They remind me so much of my childhood and the cards and post cards that were so popular back then.

I used GG0208 Stacked Bluebirds – Red Rubber Stamp and CLR013C Scalloped Circle Oval 4 – Clear Stamp Set.

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful Easter week.

Easter Flowers for You from Prickley Pear

Good Morning Friends!

I am here with a Prickley Pear Easter card. Considering that Easter is just a couple weeks away I thought I had better get busy getting some cards made. Today’s card is bright and cheery with colors of yellow, green and purple.

I first stamped the image using Tim Holtz Distress Markers.  Then I used a water color pen to blend the colors in the tulip and leaves.  I added some additional color and “bling” to the flowers using Zig Wink of Stella glitter markers, which really brightened up the flowers.

I used GG0210 Easter Flowers – Red Rubber Stamp. It’s a beautiful stamp and just perfect for making a simply gorgeous card.

Hop on over to the Prickley Pear Blog and check out all the wonderful projects from the design team.

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great day!!
