Happy Easter!

I hope all of you who celebrate Easter have a lovely holiday weekend. We are promised some warm, sunny weather here, so I plan to make the most of it!

I thought I would share a couple of quick Easter cards that I made for the thrift store where I volunteer. They've been selling out every week for the last 6 weeks or so.

These two cards were made with a couple of the felt bunny stickers that I had left over from last year. I definitely got good use out of those stickers. There is only one left.

The fancy doily die-cut on the green card is one that I got at the thrift store. I'm not sure of the brand, but I think it might be Impression Obsession. It's very delicate, so I used some spray adhesive to apply it to my card.

On the inside I used a computer-generated sentiment.

For this card, I added some scalloped borders (Fiskars border punch) on each side of my DSP (Stampin' Up). My Happy Easter die-cut is unbranded. A couple of self-adhesive pearls along with my bunny sticker completed this card front.

I added another computer-generated sentiment on the inside of this card.

Tomorrow I will be doing a little baking (Lemon-blueberry upside down cake and caramel rolls) and getting ready for Sunday. We will have some family join us for brunch. I plan on making three different kinds of quiche: sausage and cheese, artichoke heart and roasted red pepper, and spinach and crab. We'll also have bacon, sausage and a big fruit salad. I baked some banana bread today, which I'll serve with the caramel rolls. And to drink I'll serve some juice for the kids and mimosas for the adults (along with coffee and tea, of course). I'm looking forward to having the upside down cake for dessert. I hope it's good, as it is a new recipe.

May your Easter be blessed with all good things. Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

Both are cute cards. The felt of the bunnies adds a nice texture. Your brunch menu sounds yummy. If you like the lemon-blueberry cake, share your recipe. I love those 2 flavors combined. Have a joyful weekend.
