FMS429 for Easter

Happy Monday peeps!  Wow, the sun is actually shining brightly here in SE PA today!  What a welcome change!  I had a marathon stamping session yesterday, made a slew of Easter cards for friends and family, and finished them off this morning.  I was intrigued by the FMS sketch for this week, and I am squeaking these in by the skin of my teeth:

The plethora of DSP I have made it easy to create some cards with this sketch...I could go on and on!  Here's the three I am sharing today:

The first one uses Bird Ballad DSP, along with some retired Woodgrain and In Color DSP in Terracotta Tile, and a little "sprig" of frayed burlap:

The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Greetings.  Here's a similar one, using a beautiful floral from Best Dressed, another In Color DSP and a sentiment from the retired Delightful Dozen:

I also snuck in a little swirl from Ornate Style, which I haven't really played with yet!  Can you see it there?

And finally, I went with squares for this one; I stamped my little bunny in Smoky Slate and added some Soft Seafoam embossed squares and gingham; he's one of my favorites from 100 Proof Press!

Now to get these out in the mail!  Thanks for popping in today!

Our minister recently moved from our manse into his own home, and his children were bugging him to put up a tree house!  Not being handy in that manner, he asked "Mr John" if he thought he would be able to help him put up a simple platform in one of their trees in their backyard.  John said he would, so our minister sent the kids out to peruse the tree and figure out what they thought they would want the treehouse to look like:

The looks on their faces are PRECIOUS!  I can't wait to see what their imaginations come up with...maybe Mr John will be in big trouble, trying to live up to their expectations!  We'll have to see!

I love your post today. That design is awesome and I'm glad you were able to have a marathon! I looked up 100 Press and they have some great stamps. Have you ever shared a photo of your craft area. You must have so much storage for so many different companies. I really love that second easter stamp. The font is my kind of font. Yes, the expressions on their faces are priceless and I do think Mr. John might have a challenge on his hands.

A triple treat today, LeAnne … I'm betting my last dollar you'd know which one I favor!
Darling kids, deep in thought!
