Easter eggs in one basket

I feel like I am just like the stores that as soon as Valentine's is done I already have an Easter card made.  I just can't help it since I just love Mo Manning images and I haven't colored one in some time.  The sentiment and patterned paper is from TLC. I used two of the Lifestyle dies and had to make this one with the frills of lace, ribbon, pearls and flowers.  I actually can't wait to put out my new Pier 1 Easter holiday decorations later today.

Rings in the New Year - Another Follower Give Away


I had a follower give away that I did for the first of the New Year because I feel so blessed to have wonderful people who leave such regular comments on my blog about my cards and projects.  As I shared before, I had my husband die from cancer three years ago and he was a wonderful man to me and my children.  I have been lucky enough to find another man that is very different, but is very unique.  We have been together for the past two and half years.  To me it is amazing to find such love twice in a lifetime with such incredible men.  Jeff and I just exchanged Eternity Bands so that is why I say "Ring in the New Year".  At some point, not now, we look to move together so I will need to down size my craft supplies because I have more than I could ever use.  I love to shop and it's a bad habit which I am trying to break. For a fun job I also worked part-time at a Scrapbook Store some time ago when they still had stores.

So, what it is......if you are interested.....leave a comment that you are interested and I will pick a random winner after Midnight Central Time on Valentines Day Februay 14, 2017.
Any questions please see previous winner.....http://chrissyscardland.blogspot.com/2017/01/lucky-winner.html
This will be for my LOYAL followers please, I am not looking for people to join as a follower and then unjoin as soon as the date ends.
