It's time for a new challenge at The Card Concept. It's called Celebrate Easter and is a charming display of rabbits, carrots and storage jars!
I was obviously inspired by the bunnies and carrots but also by the tall lettering and the container shapes on my Clean and Layered card. I love how it all came together!
I was very excited about this one because it gave me an excuse to buy a die set that I had my eye on. I thought it would be perfect for my son's cards for Easter. They are 21 and 25 so not cutesy but not serious. I had talked myself out of it partly because I have other choices already in my stash and I wasn't even sure I'd send cards. My youngest son complains that he has to walk all the way across campus to get my cards (realize he's at a smaller school of only 2,500 students so not a big campus) and it seems to always be blizzarding or pouring rain (he's probably right there - it's on the border of Iowa and Illinois near the Mississippi River and it can get insanely cold). It's not worth sending him a card unless there are gift cards or other goodies tucked into it. My oldest is busy trying to figure out how to finally graduate and what to do next in life. My cards don't get much of a reaction - but this one's going to him. He really needs hugs!
I hope to see you playing along with us this week at The Card Concept!
