Card Patterns 158 - Another 6 for 6 at Easter


With Easter approaching, it is time to once again make 6 cards for 6 grandchildren. To make things a little easier for myself, I used the same sketch from Card Patterns 158 for all 6 of the cards. I used different digi images I had saved a while back.

I was a little tempted to enter each card separately, giving myself more chances to win the terrific prize from 'My Favorite Things' because there are some wonderful things I would love get and that would give me 6 chances! But I decided it might not be fair, and I really didn't have the time to invest in entering that often. So I'm posting them all together. The one that is posted for the challenge is the last one of the six, here at the bottom of the post.

Here is a photo of all 6, and then following is each card individually.
Hope you'll enjoy them, they were fun to put together as I was thinking of each grandchild.








Since I'm pressed for time these days, it was great that I had made a bunch of card bases from my scraps. All I had to do was pull out the ones I needed, cut the didgis, which also saved me time, and used scraps of white for the image backing and tags. I cut up one sheet of Echo Park country Drive Leafy tree Tops. One side had four 6 X 6 prints on it and by cutting it into three strips, and then 5 1/4 inches from each end I had the six pieces I needed with two of them half of one pattern and half of the one next to it in the other quadrant. It worked out rather well.

I'll write to them each this evening and have them ready to send off when the time comes.

Thank you for stopping by, and happy crafting! (As if anyone wouldn't be happy crafting ;))
