I went with a fun kinda teen look for my card...teen girl that is! LOL! Oh actually, it would work even for my age group, cause we are young at heart, right? LOL! But I do so love this set, I love grunging things up sometimes, and this set has a few things I can use for that too!

Cause to celebrate the Joy of Christ Arisen, well, we need to do that more often!! Here is my card, an Easter card that I have done:



This is one of those cards that looks so much better IRL...I cross is embossed with gold embossing powder, then colored with copics...I was going for that enamelware look...Here is a close up of it too:


I should have put some Crystal Effects over it too, that would really have made it look like inlaid enamel! Ill do that next time, LOL!

Next up is Basket Blessings....This set has so many cute images in it that can be placed into the above basket image...omg...just wait till you see them! I actually chose to not use the basket on mine, but just wanted to point at that they WILL fit into that basket! Here is mine for today:



When I first saw those cute little animals, they just screamed paper piecing to me...and to alot of the other DT too! LOL! Lots of us thought the same thing about them, lol. See? You dont have to be an expert at coloring for sets like these...paper piece them! They turn out adorable IMO!
