OCC 10 Easter AND 365 Cards 10

I combined two challenges here, which I do not do very often.

365 Cards
asked for ten different patterned papers on the card. That isn't easy ! But it is a great way to be rid of little scraps you otherwise couldn't bear to toss.

OCC is doing an Easter card this week. I came across this little advertising card that included an Easter greeting, and I knew I had to use it somehow. You can barely see the little Easter sentiment.

Growing up in Vancouver BC, and Seattle, and now living here in Oregon for so many years, I cannot recall a single Easter Sunday that wasn't a Pooh blustery day. All the cute new outfits are rain soaked, (if one can even see them beneath the winter coats) and the outdoor egg hunts are always canceled.

Dom suggested we do an outdoor egg hunt for Spencer this year, but I only laughed. I think I am the only one who can predict Easter Sunday's weather with complete accuracy. Meantime, everyone is buying the Easter bonnets to wear with their woolen scarves. They will all be surprised, but I will be very all-knowing and will refrain from "I told you so." (I will say it in my heart tho'.)


  1. Thanks for you comment Jan - I do so love that new Basic Grey line. Wow! You did a Great job on this!! You really did mesh those together well without the support of sort of object like a brick wall or flower. :) Easter Sunday in Michigan is the same way! I feel your pain!
