I've got a two-fer for you today!  My daughter stayed home sick today and while the Tylenol was working she felt up to making a card (she's back on the couch now).  I made the top one and she made the bottom card.  Mine is using that sketch I posted a few days ago from Card Patterns that I've wanted to use.  Took me long enough but I finally got to it.  I tried to give you a little peak at the inside as well since I rarely do up the inside, let alone remember to show you.
My daughter, 9, is very proud of this card and I'm proud of her!  It was her idea to do an Easter card and she chose the colors and design.  I gave her a few pointers here and there and tied the ribbon for her, but she did the rest!  She is excited because I told her we could enter this in Shelli's April Showers contest.  The sketch she used is from the Clean and Simple blog- which I happened to be using myself at the time (will post my creations with that sketch tomorrow).  She was concerned about flipping the sketch but I assured her that was just fine.  The part she got the most excitement from is when I showed her how to use this Tulip Frame border embossing folder!! 

Speaking of April showers, we are definitely getting them today!  Hope you are staying dry!  Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I see you got to that sketch....I still haven't. love the bright colors with the black and the ribbons are sooo pretty. I just adore Ches's card, too. colors are great and it's always a lovely suprise when you see a sketch flipped! She's sure got talent! Hope she's feeling better by now!
