I finally finished making my 20 cards for the soldiers, YaY!!! One of my scrapping friends, Patty Loup (aka: Paperpiecing Patty or Momma 411) is organizing another mail of cards for our soldiers who are away from there families. This time she is gathering Easter cards. They can be handmade or store bought, either way the troops are the utmost appreciative for whatever they get as they don't have the luxury of going to a card shop like we do... If your are interested in participating, you can contact Patty Loup through her blog at http://paperpiecingpatty.blogspot.com/
Okay, for my card I sort of cheat...lol I purchase these card packs from Target in the $1 bends and just added to it. The stamp set that I used was from The Angel Company called, "I love Easter." I used the flower punch to cut the flowers out and finish the card off by adding stickles to the center of the flowers and around the saying, "For Somebunny Special." I have a small "Happy Easter" saying inside so that they can have plenty of space to journal to there love ones. I also got the card layout idea from "Mojo Monday" #70. Thanks, Mojo for the idea! I'm still struggling with making cards for some reason. I just can't seem to put them together but I'm a die hard, so I'll keep on trying...lol

Here is a little plaque that I made for my niece who is having her 1st baby this month! Obviously, she is having a little girl! I used the wooden flower that you can buy at Micheal's and covered it with paper and embellished. I used a saying from the vellum girls theme book and cut the words, "Princess Aubrey" out using my sizzix's. She can use the matt on the flower to either place a picture of her little princess or she can journal. Myself, I would put a picture but it is now her's to do with it what she wishes. Good luck Amanda on a safe, quick, and healthy delivery. Can't wait to meet our new little "PRINCESS AUBREY!"
