Are you ready for Easter?? Some Easter cards from Paper Craft Crew challenge #89

What do you do for Easter?  Baskets, dinner, buffet, Easter egg hunt, send cards??
I am doing a couple of baskets, and since most of my family is on the east coast, I send cards, flowers, cookies, and candy.  I was wishing someone would send me flowers on Easter, so I figured, I could send some to myself from our furbabies!  Here is what I will be getting (purple is my fave color!!)

Yes, chocolate too as my husband loves chocolate more than me!

I am sending my mother a twig and moss garden purse. This gift makes it easy to pick a little slice of Spring up and bring it with her to any room!  She was sad she couldn't go out and work in her garden now that the weather was getting better since she got sick.  Pink is her fave color.

And my sons are getting some Easter treats too - although I told them to expect it this weekend, they never read my blog, so I can share pictures here, lol!

 I had to send both, since one of them doesn't like chocolate much (can you believe it?).  Sure hope everything is as great as they look.  I will let you  know when I get my flowers this weekend!

So, on to the card design #89 with Paper Craft are the cards from the design team using the card sketch above:

Creating Watercolor Backgrounds Using Your Clear Block

As you know, water coloring is really hot and popular now!!  Here's a quick video that shows you how easily you can achieve this look with just an acrylic block and a spritzer in 2 minutes!!  This video also shows how you can use the masking technique and a few sequins.

 Buy them in my online Stampin' Up store...
It works really well with Stampin' Up's water coloring paper but you can use any nice cardstock too!

April Fools Blog Hop today!! Di's Country INKers

Hi, hello, welcome to Di's Country INKers April Fools Blog Hop!!
If you are already seeing the other participants in this blog hop, you just came from the blog of Crystal :

For my project I wanted to do something that I have been seeing - this project has been done in many different exciting and interesting designs and I'm sure you have also seen tutorials and templates on how to make them.   

I decided to make my project in a size that I could put into a standard A1 envelope to mail (4" x 4").

I also had some help from my furbabies, Inu and Tootsi, who inspired my theme....well, with the blog name of Dogg and Pony Show, it is to be expected, right?!

Here is my project - can you tell what it is??

 Inu and Tootsi tell me that you need more information and pictures, so here are a few more:

Now Inu and Tootsi are getting excited to see what's coming up next in the pictures of this project!

Can you tell what it is yet?  Give them more, says Inu and  Tootsi!
Okay now time for the full frontal pictures!

And finally, the full effect!

Yep, my April Fools blog hop project was a card in a box with two dogs having fun!
 Now Inu and Tootsi are getting bored, the wait was hard to do!  So off they go, but before you hop to the next blog, here are the stamp sets I used for my project, along with gumball green cardstock, ribbon, and paper stacks (blender pen to color the two dogs):

Hope you enjoyed my April Fools Blog Hop project and had some fun!
