Happy Easter!

Hello!  Hope your having a wonderful Easter weekend!  We sure are!  Yesterday was Good Friday which is a holiday here with no stores open or school!  Actually no school Monday either!  Yay to a 4 day weekend with Ariel!  :>  

I have a Easter card today to share that I made inspired by Ariel's Easter dress!  I bought the kids Easter outfits last weekend and realized that one of the Floral Blossom stamps kinda matched the flowers on Ariel's dress!  Here is a picture of her in the dress:

I always make my inlaws an Easter card, here it is inspired by Ariel's Easter dress:

 Isn't this stamp close to the flowers on the dress?  I mimicked the belt with the bow on top.   Not the best photo of this card I had to take the picture really quickly as we rushed to get out of the door on time!  I am entering this card into A Blog Named Hero's challenge of Playing Favorites.  I am sure your not surprised that this stamp is a favorite!

Yesterday we celebrated Easter with Chad's family!  This year is the first year that the weather was nice enough that the egg hunt was outside!  So much more fun looking for chocolate eggs in the grass!  Enjoyed a yummy turkey and family time!  :>  

Here are a few photos from yesterday, first up the kids with Grandma and Grandpa (Chad's parents)

The last one is of all the cousins together!  10 in total!  :>

Well I am off to do an Easter craft with Ariel while Carter naps!  Hope your having a wonderful weekend with your family!  :>

Happy Easter!

What beautiful pictures- Chad's mom looks the same as when I met her 20+ years ago! Great cousins picture too- everyone is growing up so fast!

Your card is BEAUTIFUL! I love the different colours~they work wonderfully together! I also really like the layout, the way that you placed the flowers and cut some out! Looks so pretty! Beautiful bow and loving the edges!

Ah, cousins are the best - I have great memories of holidays with mine. They all look so happy and cute - the grandparents, too! You are doing wonders with this stamp, Anita - this card captures the happiness of that dress fabric and the holiday. So sweet.
