Happy Monday Morning!

I hope that all of you were blessed with a fabulous Easter Sunday.  It was such a beautiful day here - perfect for remembering our Risen Lord.

I have a few cards in this first post for the day.  The first is a sketch from the Sweet Stop:

This sketch is wonderful, and I absolutely loved working with it.  I grabbed some Tim Coffey papers, Martha Stewart ribbon, and a CTMH sentiment to create this card.  This card will also fit into the Stampin' for the Weekend challenge which is ribbons and bows.


The next card is a sketch from Card Patterns:


I am not much of a circle user like this, so this was a great challenge for me.  Again, I used Tim Coffey paper.  Along with that you'll see a Bazzill flower and CTMH ribbon and sentiment stamp.  In order to make the circles pop, I used Ranger Glossy Accents.

The last card of this post is a sketch for Your Scrapbook Stash:

I used Cosmo Cricket Material Girl paper for this card.  The flowers are CTMH and Prima, the button is from my stash, and the ribbon and sentiment are CTMH.  I love the brightness of this paper - so cheery!!

Yesterday we received some news about my mother.  Two of my sisters took her to the ER, and it turns out that she has double pneumonia and will be staying in the hospital. I am quite worried about her so if you happen to remember, would you keep her in your prayers?

I like all of your cards, especially the last one. I just had some of that measuring tape paper out the other day and wondered what to do with it. Nice pairing with the other paper.
