Challenge #30 E is for Easter at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers

Happy Spring, wow it seemed like a loooooooooooong time coming but days are longer and warmer soon we will be seeing crocuses peeking out of the dirt in the flower beds. Where the snow has slid off the roof there is a three foot pile it will take a while to have that melt.  Back to the challenge at The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers since it is only a couple of weeks until Easter our challenge for you is E is for Easter, lets see your Easter creations. I have two cards for you to look at today, the first one I just HAD to follow Freshly Make Sketches Sketch #178 it fit my plans perfect.

Since I haven’t any Easter verses I just used this Hero Arts verse I have had for at least 10 years.

I used the same stamp from House Mouse Designs ( I just bought it) I am not sure where I got the Friend definition from but thought it would be nice to put on a card for one of my very good friends. I used Spellbinders label 8 and decorative labels 8 and a butterfly embossing folder.
