A banner birthday card

Did you have a good Easter?

Ours was good, but loooooong..... LOL! We got up at 6am to attend our church's sunrise service at a cemetery on the hill..... There's something so fabulous about having a sunrise service celebrating the One who conquered death in a cemetery.... Then we had a continental breakfast at church, followed by another church service, then Sunday school (where I got to play a crying and babbling Mary Magdalene). After a quick lunch at home, we drove to my mom's in Winnipeg to celebrate Easter with her. It felt so good to climb into my bed last night....

I thought I'd share a card today. I made this card last month for the Papercrafts submission call. It was for one of their sketches...


I used Papertrey Ink cardstock (stamper's select white, soft stone), stamps (Boy Basics: Game On), buttons & dies (tag sale #5 (trimmed down to make the banners) and tiny tags). The patterned paper is My Mind's Eye.

Thanks for looking!

Sounds like you had a long and busy day. I am sure you played a great Mary Magdalene. Fabulous banners. I am going to have to try that now that that die has made it into my craftroom.
