Easter Gal

I cannot believe how quickly the past week went by. I had to work almost every day, and on Wednesday I drove up to my girlfriend's. Every other Wednesday (most of the time), I make the 60 mile drive up to have a play date with my friend. We don't always get a lot done, but we enjoy the day together -- and usually do a good bit of laughing.

This week Bugaboo Stamps is our sponsor. If you don't have a good collection of their stamps, you are missing out. I noticed, when I went to find the link to my image, they have revamped their site and added some new images. 

Here is this week's sketch:

As you can see, I had to turn the sketch in order for my image to fit. My card is white with a layer of purple and plaid DP. Both designer papers are from the same 8.5 x 11" paper pad called Sweet Pea. I think the pad may have come from Hobby Lobby, but I can't be totally certain. If not, then it came from Michael's Crafts.

I printed off the image, Easter Gal,  onto x-Press It brand card and colored it with Copic markers. The matching flower medallion came from my stash and isn't even made by the same company as the paper, but sure did match well, didn't it? I added the little white bow because, to be perfectly honest, I needed to cover a little boo-boo (smile).

Do take the time to go over to the Tuesday Morning Blog and have a look at the cards that the other team members made for your inspiration. I think we have some very creative ladies on our team.


  1. I need a friend like that!

    Your card is stunning! What an unexpected image from Bugaboo, it's really different than their usual stuff. I love it. And you did an amazing job with your card.

  2. What a cute Easter card! I like the plaid paper you paired with it.

  3. I love that you meet up with your friend regularly. I moved a couple years ago and now I'm 10 hours away from my friends :( I love your swanky bunny card just perfect for a hubby Easter card! So true how your medallion worked out great with your background papers-love it when that happens!
