Sunny Easter Wishes - Mojo78


Okay....finally....after several days of trying to get this finished.....I did!! I think it is gorgeous! I wanted an Easter card that reminded me of when I was younger....the purples, lavenders and yellows, like the Easter dresses I wore to church on Easter morning.


The flowers are done on watercolor paper with a wash of Barely Banana re-inker. Then I used my Twinkling H2Os for some shimmer. Finally, I had difficulty coming up with a suitable flower center....so, I combined an orange colored brad and several layers of Crystal Effects and a liberal dose of chunky MS glitter. I think they look like little gumdrops.

Thanks to all of you who responded to yesterdays post with your kind words and prayers. I do appreciate you very much! Clark is still in the hospital, still with Pneumonia. He will be in over the weekend. He looks a bit better and yesterday he even managed a weak smile. He let me know he misses his school friends.



Have a great weekend and Happy Crafting!!
