While the Kids are Away...

Hi friends! I hope you are having a great week! My kids are at my in laws's house so I've been resting and stamping a bit. Well, a lot. I should probably be sleeping more but I don't feel that tired. Probably since I rested well last night. You never fully "turn off" when you're a mommy. Every bump and noise at night makes me wake up but I didn't do that last night because I knew my kids weren't here.

Let's get into the cards, shall we? First up, another one for the Paper Smooches Sparks current challenge as well as the Easter challenge on the Create Blog. The bunny is from Paper Smooches A Little Lovin. The sentiment is My Thoughts Exactly Easter Greetings. The paper is from American Crafts Dear Lizzy Neapolitan.
The next card is for the Retro Sketches #5. I used Amy Tangerine's Sketchbook papers for this and the stamp is from the first Amy Tangerine line.
The last card is for Card Patterns Sketch 159, Lawnscaping Challenge 31: coloring, and iCopic #76: for a child. I used Lawn Fawn stamps and paper for this. I used May Arts ribbon, Martha Stewart punch, Spellbinders Nestie, MFT cloud die, and Kaisercraft bling.
Have a great day, friends!
