Spring Colors - FMS174






I used markers to ink up images from the new set For Peeps' Sake on my card today.  I am getting a bit concerned that the Easter Bunny will be hiding eggs in the snow around here this year!  But in the meantime I craft using spring colors on cards to brighten my day!

Miss Emma received a gift this week done in gorgeous spring colors!  A friend of my daughter's made this amazingly beautiful quilt for Emma to use when she moves into a "real" bed - won't be long!  The love and care that went into making this quilt is so special and I am in awe of this lady's talent! That quilt will be treasured forever!





That fabulous card maker Cindy Lovell designed a fun sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches.  Use any shape you want on your diagonal piece and have fun!

I am so glad you posted this card today. I just got this set and I think it's adorable! What a great idea to color everything with markers! Too cute! And Miss Emma sure looks like a movie star in that big bed, with those cute little arms so high! She's so precious. Beautiful quilt and an amazing gift for Emma to treasure until she has children! Very nice.... :-)

Linda cute little egg card in sping colors. Could sure use some springy weather! I'm with you.. our Easter will have snow dirfts too I'm afraid. I also love your "signature" twine twirlly thingy behind the sentiment.
LOVE the quilt... nothing like a homemade quilt to feel comfy. What a great friend .... lots of work too. Just beautiful. Hugs.

Such a fun card Linda and I do love those tumbling eggs!!! I really should have invested in some Easter stamps! I always love how you wrap your twine! Mine never seems to look so natural! Love Emma's quit! What a treasure!

Your patience and attention to detail are amazing, as proved by this awesome Easter card! I could never color in all those little eggs! But the quilt--wowza, what an heirloom to be treasured! Lucky Emma!

Devil's Canyon, bunny trail - who can tell! But I will say that I'm super impressed with the coloring of those eggs. I'm not sure I'd have the patience to do that! And what an amazing gift for Emma! That's a keepsake to treasure always!

I love all of those colored Easter eggs. And I love how you've split the base panel for the sketch. Emma's quilt is beautiful! My grandmother made too many quilts to count over her lifetime, and I'm blessed to have a few in my home. They are treasured possessions, and she always did all of the stitching by hand. What a wonderful gift for Emma.
