The Easter Table

We had a wonderful Easter dinner at my brother and sister-in-law's with a few of their friends.  I brought the centerpiece and it was so fun to make.  It took me a while since I had downloaded the update to the Silhouette designer software.  It had so many bugs and looked so different the I restored my old version.  Well it wasn't a complete restore as it dropped the designer part.  I wasn't able to upload the SVG file I needed.  After trying all day to get it back, I finally decided I'd trying going back to the email that I got the update from.  I reloaded it and fortunately the bugs had been fixed.  So after much trial and error, I finally got the file I purchased from SVGcuts loaded and ready to cut.  I think it turned out quite well.

The bunny is from SVG CUTS  I filled his tummy with chocolate eggs.

The carrots are from Silhoutte and are filled with chocolate eggs.

I added some paper eggs and daffodils from Silhouette.

The meal was delicious and everyone seemed to enjoy the decorations.  Hope all had a Happy Easter!

OWH cardmaking for April

The Pennbrooke ladies have done it again and completed a nice batch of cards to send to Operation Write Home.  I created the kits with images from Doodle Pantry, Lettering Delights, and Silhouette.  Digital images are so easy to use for kits.  Being able to cut them on the Silhouette makes it even easier.  Here are the April kits that were completed:

Father's Day deadline is coming up soon so our focus was on masculine cards.  I think these would work for Father's day or most any other occasion that requires a masculine card.

OWH Sketch #219

Doodle Pantry sponsored Operation Write Home's Sketch Challenge #219.  They make the greatest doodles for card making.  It's a great place to get inspiration.  So I had to join along with this card:

This was an easy and fun card to make.
