Oh, Happy Day

A great day to create, I think. :) I didn't get much done, but I did get one card created. I also helped my 6 year old make a pillow and blanket. :)

The colors look a little screwy here, but you can see some of the details.

My inspiration for this card came from a couple of challenges. Strangely, the colors came from the CAS challenge on SCS. This card didn't turn out to be CAS, but the colors came from the Family Circle magazine cover that the challenge was using this week.

Stampin' Sisters In Christ had a challenge to be very opposite of a CAS card ... use everything! I used a lot on this card, so I hope it counts for that.

Cute Card Thursday has an 'anything goes' challenge going.

Card Recipe -
stamps - misc. set from Hobby Lobby, Christian Friendship (Clear Dollar Stamps)
paper - dp, lavender, pink, white
ink - brown, black
accessories - ribbon (under lace), lace, Spellbinders' dies, Designer Labels dies(Clear Dollar Stamps), other die, flowers, pearls, Sheer Shimmer frost, pop dots

My princess got creative today, too. She wanted to make herself a pillow. When she brought me the fabric she had chosen, we found that it was big enough for a pillow and a blanket to match. Yes ..... she's a John Deere fan.

I helped her put the lace on, but she very carefully sewed her pillow by herself. :) She did a great job, and I'm very proud of her.

I'm still working on her Easter dress. I just need to put the buttons, hook and eye, and pockets on. Then.... we'll be done! :) I can't wait for her to wear it on April 8th.

I hope you are having a wonderful Tuesday and that you have a great, big, beautiful tomorrow.
