Congratulations, Michelle! I emailed you about your addy!
To be fair I printed out the comments and cut out each one. I placed them all in a shoe box and had my 2.5 year old dd pick one. It took a while because she wanted to play with it and she kept pulling out several at a time, but eventually she did just pull out one! This was fun! Thanks for visiting and commenting!

I used chocolate chip cardstock as the base and pretty in pink with naturals ivory for he insert and the scallop circle. Chocolate chip ink to stamp the Happy Hellos and chocolate chip ribbon across the front. I distressed the insert with, yep, you guessed it, chocolate chip...(why do I have the sudden urge for cookies and milk?) I've forgotten how much I like doing these criss-cross cards! If you have not made one of these yet, you must go here and get the tutorial!

On another note, why is it that my UPS man cannot get here until late afternoon? Doesn't he understand my daughter naps from 1 - 3 and if I had my deliver here before then I might actually be able to do something with it today? Why are my needs not being met? Does he not care? Apparently not! Oh well, life goes on =-) On a happy note, I got chocolate in the mail today!!! When we went to Hawaii this year I purchased a package of pens to give out as souvenirs and when I got home, none of the pens worked. I called Hilo Hattie and they said they would credit me with the amount of money I spent on the pens, but I didn't want the money, I wanted working pens!!! So they told me I could send them back and they would send replacement pens. They arrived today and the nice lady sent me a box of chocolate for my troubles!! How cool is that? They also gave me 20% off the next time I am in their store...which may be never, I don't know, but the thought is nice! Sadly though, the pens still do not work. I think I may try to find refills for them myself. They weren't very expensive, but I kind of expected them to last a couple days! I am happy though, they tried to rectify the situation and that is what is important to me! Wow, I really went off on some tangents today didn't I? Thanks for reading! (Send some delivery vibes to my UPS guy! Thanks!!)
Updated - Thanks for the delivery vibes! He came at 3:00 exactly and my daughter slept for another 45 minutes! I was able to mount 2 of my Sale-A-Bration sets and use them on a card, I'll post it later =-)

I used Pretty in Pink as the base and then Sage Shadow and Spring Fling Designer Series Paper. I stamped the Never Ending Joy stamp in versamark on white paper and used Stampin' Pastels and sponged the colors over the images. I just loved the colors. My next version I used an image I received from my Secret Sister, Tina:
I colored the bunny in with my water color pencils and used my creative memories cutting system to cut the ovals. I bought a little package of flowers at Archiver's, so I put one in the corner. The Happy Easter stamp is a Stampendous stamp that I also purchased at Archiver's. I put some stickles on the bunny's fluffy tail. My next one I used a cute little House Mouse stamp I purchased at Hobby Lobby. I also colored him with the water color pencils. I am trying to use some of my embellishments that I have been hording.
I have one more to show you because I couldn't pick a favorite, I am showing them all! I felt like I needed to take advantage of the double sided paper. I love easter cards because the colors are so pretty. Now, if we could just get rid of the snow!
