Easter Mashed Up!

My poor sister has three major life events all happening at once - she has just returned to work from maternity leave to a new job, she is currently moving into a new home, and her daughter will shortly celebrate her first birthday with a party! 

So I had a mish-mash of cards to make recently - and seeing that I went to a crop yesterday and made one card, it was up at dawn today to get the cards done and posted to Australia in time for Easter. 

I made this one by chopping scraps up into various shapes.  The text print is 7gypsies tissue paper.

Here's my Easter cards so far.  First one is grungy stamping, second one very clean - coloured in with Copics.  I used up my scraps of Junkitz spring paper, I think it is. The flower stamp is Pink Paislee.  The word and circle stamping is Paula Pascual designs - I bought her stamps from the recent QVC craft day about a month ago.  Very clean, classic designs -will be invaluable. 

I borrowed my friend Tara's Martha Stewart loopy punch for the bottom.  All out of scraps.  I always think ginghams look good for Easter cards, even though these are going to Australia where it's autumn!

This last one was a rush job and think it's a bit busy for me.  Old Chatterbox stickers and some plastic lettering.  I actually cut into a piece of Teresa Collins for Junkitz Love Line 12 x 12 - go me!  The Vs were converted into A's using some 3D foam - a bit clumsy, but oh well!  Amazing how a simple white line within the red border gives the card a little bit of room to breathe. 

At least they're done and sent!  And hopefully not too late.  Another rush job tomorrow morning ....
