A Gem of A Challenge- Anything Goes

I had to make two more Easter cards so I thought it would be perfect to fit them both in at A Gem of A Challenge. :)

 The first card I used Bunny with carrots image. The second card I used Bunny with flowers. The first Easter card I made more neutral because we have a granddaughter and two grandsons in the family. The second card we have all granddaughters in the family. Oh, come to think of it, I made the second card for my sister who has all girls in her family, lol. I already posted the card beforehand of the one I am sending  my granddaughters.
Oh, on the second Easter card, I hand cut the eggs. I didn't own a die and really wanted them in the center. When all else fails, you do it yourself! (Chattering teeth, lol)
Hope to see you as there is a great prize to be won at A Gem of  Challenge!
Hugs, and happy crafting!

This adorable image is called, Bunny painting egg! I wanted to make a boy bunny as we have a few grandsons as well as all the granddaughters we have. We have 7 granddaughters, and 4 grandsons. Most of the time I try and make a neutral card, but this time I went all out male! He is an adorable little bunny isn't he! :)

The shape I used is a Dutch Doobadoo. I just love them!!! I was very fortunate for a dear friend of mine to send me a whole bunch from the netherlands. :)

A Gem of A Challenge- Anything Goes

Welcome to another A Gem of A Challenge blog post! :)
We were asked to make Mother's Day cards seeing as in England, their Mother's Day comes first. For everyone else, the challenge is always Anything Goes.
Well, my mom and mother in law both have passed away so I sort of just made a celebration card instead. It still fits, all but the balloons. :o
The image I have used is called Emma cocktails.
The challenge just started! I look forward to see you there!
Hugs, and happy crafting!

Today starts another challenge at A Gem of A Challenge.
The theme for us is to use pastel colors, but for everyone else it is Anything Goes.
I think it's perfect timing to start thinking about Easter, don't you!? Here is the first Easter card I made this year.
I used this adorable image called Bunny Painting. Isn't it just the cutest! This one will be going to my daughter and her family in Texas.
Polkadoodles sells Pink Gem images now so it's just so much easier for everyone to shop. :)
Come play along with us! We love to see all your wonderful creations!
