Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog #298 - Easter

Our challenge at the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog this month has an Easter theme.  You'll want to click over to the blog and see the inspiration from our DT.  We hope you join the challenge so you have a chance to win a cool prize.
             Our Sponsor                                       Our Prize

To qualify for the prize, you must use at least one Cricut cut on your project.  If it's not obvious, please tell us which cartridge you used.  If you use a Cricut Explore, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.  And if your project is not a card, you will get two entries in the prize drawing.

I made a clean and simple card as is my usual style. This was fun to make and took very little time.

I'm making more Easter cards this year than I have in past years.  I will make multiples of some cards, something I don't do a lot.  But I need to keep it simple and time is definitely running out to get cards in the mail.  I'm looking forward to sending more happy mail than usual.  Do you send lots of cards for Easter?

All the cuts were made from snippets of paper I had in my scrap basket.  I just hate to throw away card stock and DP.  The clouds were actually cut years ago and saved!  How's that for being thrifty?  (Thrifty sounds better than hoarding - LOL!)

Cricut Cartridges:  Welcome Spring (umbrella); Art Philosophy (eggs); Artbooking (grass); Artiste (clouds)
Stamps:  Sunny Studio (A Good Egg)
Inks:  Broken China Distress Ink; Close to My Heart (Pear)
Card Stock:   Recollections 110 lb and 60 lb
