The Sisterhood of Crafters

It's time for another challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters!
Today, I am your hostess and our challenge is most appropriate for this time of year!  
Yep, I'm talking about EASTER/SPRING.

We are thrilled to have a sponsor this time around and it is QKR Stampede.  They have some really fun images, please be sure to pop over and check them out.  Of course you can always play along in the Sisterhood Challenge and have the chance of winning FIVE FREE digis from QKR. 

I've created two cards for you today ... one for Easter and one for Spring!  
NO you don't have to make one of each ... it is an "either/or" theme.
 (I've been accused of being an 'overachiever' ... hmmm guess they might be right!  LOL).

First using the fun digi image from QKR called "Easter Message #24126", I've created an Easter card.  The jellybean paper is actually a free image from the internet which I printed, cut & adhered as my background.   I've used Spectrum Noir alcohol markers to color my image and a Fiskars swivel craft knife for the fussy cutting.  I created the wording on my sign in WORD.  The grassland border & picket fence are dies from

My second card is for the SPRING portion of our challenge.
 My focus image is from the Crafty Secrets 'Victorian Easter Eggs1'  Digital Sheet which can be purhcased at the store.
 I've used my Creative Memories oval cutting system for my shape & matting.  Michaels red gingham ribbon and a few gems help to embellish this CAS creation.  The doily lace border and butterfly are by Martha Stewart.

I hope you'll come join in our challenge fun!
