Hoppy Birthday


Happy Easter!  I am on spring break this week and will be headed all over the place.  We are celebrating Easter with both sides of the family today.  I am looking forward to a week filled with friends, family, and relaxation!

I made this card for my brother in law for his birthday.  I used Stretch Your Imagination.  Instead of cutting out the card with the critter I went over it with a cricut marker then cut out just the solid card.  I used my gypsy to get the layers the size I needed and the frame as well.  The font is Mini Monograms.

I then used my Martha Stewart scoreboard to create a coordinating envelope because the card is 5.5x5.5. I am still getting the hang of the scoreboard but I do like using it!

I hope your Easter is blessed and that you are able to spend some time reflecting on what Easter is truly about.

Much love and Happy Crafting,
