Happy Easter!

The Good News today -  He is Risen!  Let the Earth Rejoice!  
Wishing everyone a Joyous Easter today!

I thought I'd share some cards and crafts I made this year for Easter.
Playing with my Distress Oxide Inks to create the backgrounds and black embossing the sentiments on these 4 cards.
A little wreath I made with grands Landon and Mila -  using a paper plate as the base with the center cut out, layering die cut Nestie eggs around the wreath - some cut out of patterned paper and some plain to stamp or color on - they came out so cute and the kids loved them!
A clean and simple card out of Kraft cardstock - stamps from Waltzingmouse (retired)
More stamps from Waltzingmoues (retired) die cut layered over a piece of Washi Tape.
I made these tiny coffee bags (1"x2") using a Waltzingmouse die and stamps (retired), that just fit 4 Cadbury eggs inside.  A little piece of lace and Nestie cut egg decorate the front.
I made these sweet little sunbonneted bunnies out of clothespins, painting the bodies white and the stand base green, gathering a little rectangle of cloth around their necks for the dress, painting wooden ears and sticking them on the back of the hats, making arms out of a knotted piece of twine and adding a carrot, chickie or egg.  I drew the face with a Micron 01 fine black pen and put a little rouge on their cheeks. 
After church - we're having Easter dinner at niece Christie and Nate's along with niece Katie and her family as well as Christie's in-laws -  I'm bringing roasted rainbow carrots and cookies
 along with the place settings that I made out of ice cream cones with edible grass, rainbow Twizzle handles and Cadbury eggs.  (I'll post a little tutorial in a few days!)

Happy Easter to all those celebrating!
