So, I lied...

I told my friends earlier today that I wasn't going to make any more Easter cards. I said I didn't have time. If I thought it was the truth, does it still count as a lie? Basically, I figured on running certain errands tonight in preparation for my trip. I won't bore you with details. Suffice it to say that banks don't always have money and now I have to go back there on Wednesday. I thought I needed to head to the store for some things, but found out that I have them all at home, and so on. That's enough info on that. Anyhow, the unexpected free time allowed me to finish another Easter card. Really, it wasn't free time...I should have been cleaning my house. Who feels like cleaning when Mr. Mojo visits, though???

My mojo tonight came from two places: 1) this adorable stamp from Stampavie. Yes, I used it on an earlier card, too. I can't help it. This little chick is too cute for words; and 2) the great sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. It's sketch #96 this week.

I colored the image with copics. My friend Tracy inspired me to use tiny ribbons to tie up bigger ribbon. I took some sheer yellow ribbon, added lavender crinkly ribbon on top of it, then cinched it together with three thin purple ribbon pieces. I got the pom pom ribbon on clearance at Hancock Fabrics ages ago. The yellow flower seam binding came in a basket of odds and ends from an antique store, still in it's original wrapper with the original 20 cent price tag on it. The sentiment is from Whiff of Joy. Papers are prima and bazzill. I think that about covers it! Once again, thanks for stopping by. Have a fabulous day!

So glad you had time to do another Easter card! I love this one and haven't seen it before! Your sentiment is perfect with this happy image! I love the pansies. I purchased $36 worth of pansies to plant at my parents home and the deer ate them over night! But yours are gorgeous and remind me of my favorite one....white with deep purple centers! Love all your detail on your card! Thanks for joining us at SSW!
