Easter Cards!
These were made at my Friday card club at Claudia's house.
They turned out so cute I may try to make some more!
Thanks, Claudia, for passing along great ideas!

I'm A Winner!
Back in January I filled out the survey for Paper Crafts magazine's 5th anniversary issue. I got an email in March that said I was one of the winners, and soon, I received a Purple Cow Paper Trimmer in the mail. What a surprise! It has a straight paper cutting blade on one side, a detachable ruler, and 4 interchangable blades for free-hand or diagonal cutting of a straight line, wavy line, perforation and scoring. Yipee!

stencil, green ink pad and fancy-edge scissors.

I used hand made paper, gold paper, silver and gold brads,
angel charm, sheer pink ribbon and "a thought for you" stamp
