A Joyous Easter

The resurrection gives my life meaning and direction and the opportunity to start over no matter what my circumstances.

Heart Wreath

 Hi Everyone!  I'm feeling much better!  Yeah!

I made this card a couple of weeks ago, and finally here it is.  I borrowed the stamp from a friend who was into stamping, but hasn't done much in a long while...which reminds me, I need to return it! 

I'm casing Bridget's card Flower Tapestry.

Stamps: Friendship Flowers, Beyond the Basics, heart wreath

Paper: Stamping Up! card stock, designer paper 
Ink: mellow moss, barely banana, ballet blue, old olive
Accessories: stickles, fine glitter dust, handmade tea stained ribbon

Have a great week and don't forget my blog candy giveaway!
I promise to take a better picture of the cards as soon as I get a chance...

Hi Everyone!  It has been busy around the Ohlson home lately.  I had a little...actually a BIG SCARE this week.  I ended up at the emergency room due to high blood pressure.  I completely ignore all of the signs of hypertension, until I had really bad chest pains and lots of pressure.  I was having a hard time catching my off to the ER I was rushed and had a stay at the hospital for observation.  I'm finally home resting and making sure I follow doctor's orders to a "T"!  It's time for me to wake up and smell the roses!

This card is another one of my Featured Stampers Challenge, 214.  When I saw Bridget's card I knew I had to case it since I had exactly the same designer paper.  Thanks to my Big Sister, she had included this paper in a packet of assorted 6" x 6" designer paper I received from her.

Bridget called her card English Garden.  I had the flower lace for a while, and I knew that eventually it would come in handy.
Stamps: Bliss

Paper: DP; assorted CS
Ink: basic black, craft rose red

Accessories: pearl sticker, oval scallop punch, large oval punch, organza ribbon, flower lace, piercing tool
Techniques: piercing

Please take care and think of you first!
God Bless!
