Happy Belated Easter

I had intended to get this post up yesterday; but needless to say, the weekend was very busy.  After church on Easter morning, we spent the day with family and had a wonderful time.  Even though we were going to be out on Easter, I spent the day before doing traditional Easter activities like coloring eggs, baking a cake, making potato salad to take to Easter dinner, and, finally, making an Easter card.  Sad to say, it is the only one I made for the holiday.  But I did make a birthday card for a dear nephew that I'll share another time.  Here is my lone Easter card.


I fell in love with this vintage image that Inger Harding used on a gift bag she shared on her blog.  The image came from her Pinterest page where she has pinned many beautiful vintage images.  I simply glued the image to a piece of DCWV cardstock that I then attached to a pre-made Recollections card.  I tied a piece of soft green seam binding around the card and adhered a Recollections flower to the bow.  A strip of Recollections self-adhesive lace was added down the left side and some pearls from Jolee finished it off.

Well, that's it for me today.  I hope the holiday was wonderful for those of you who celebrate it.  I had the day off from work today and spent it doing some spring housecleaning.  Looking forward to sitting back and relaxing now.  Back to work tomorrow.  Have a great week and thanks for stopping by!

  1. Hi Pat,

    How are you? You are so very good with vintage card. Beautiful card as always.

    Thanks for sending me the scrapbook expo. I wanted to go but I most likely won't be able to go. I had to work. Also, I am making Lindsy's baby shower favors. Hope to see you there.
