Happy Easter!-BBTB2 Challenge

Hello my crafty friends, happy Monday to you all!! I hope your week is starting out great. It is a chemo day for us and we have been blessed in that we aren't going to chemo in the snow anymore. lol  Hubby is doing well, but had to take our little dog in to the vet last week. She has diabetes, so now I need to give her 2 shots of insulin a day. I think we are falling apart around here. lol She is doing so much better now that she is getting the insulin and I'm very thankful for that and for how well hubby is doing! We are indeed blessed.

I am host this week for BBTB2 and I have given my design team sisters the challenge of any kind of Easter project. Easter is this Sunday, so I know you all are busy getting those last minute Easter projects done. I have been working on my grandchildren's Easter cards, so that's what I have for you today. This is the first time that I made them all the same. Usually I do something different for each one. And even though they are the same, they are different too. I used different colors for each child. I still have two more to get done and will probably work on them after chemo today. I used the Cricut cartridge Spring Holiday Cards to make the cards. I love the one that says "some bunny loves you" because we sure do love these little precious ones. That saying that grandchildren complete the circle of life sure is true! We adore spending time with the little ones and plan on doing just that this week by dying eggs with 2 of our granddaughters. Other granddaughter is to young at only 2 months old, 2 are in NY and the other 2 we don 't even know where they are. So we send love to them through the good Lord. Now aren't these cards just too cute?! Plain, but still cut to me. I used google eyes for them and little pink crystals for the nose of the bunny. I think the grands will love them cause they are cute and a little bit funny. lol Now it is your turn, link up your Easter project with BBTB2 and make sure that you follow our simple rules. Thank you for stopping by to visit with me a spell and for your sweet comments, they always put a big smile on my face. I hope your Easter is a blessed one and the day is gorgeous! Spend time enjoying the real meaning of Easter and hiding those Easter eggs!And don't get a tummy ache on all the Easter candy.  Crafty hugs, Brenda

So glad to hear that your hubby is doing well with the chemo! And Yay for not having to fight through the snow to get to the treatments! I say this as it is spitting snow here-sort of winter's last little hurrah, but my daffodils are bravely standing strong! The Easter cards are darling (love the goggly eyes you added) and I'm sure your grands will LOVE them! Have fun dyeing Easter eggs! (My boys still like to dye eggs even as teens and preteens!)

Your positive attitude, Brenda, makes my heart-melt! You manage to find the blessings in everything; even the challenges you face, you handle with grace and prayer! I hope your husband's treatment went well today, and that your dog continues to improve with insulin. I'm sending prayers to you, filled with gratitude that our paths have crossed. I believe angels walk the earth, and you are definitely one of them! Now, about these cards...eeeee!!

Your cards are just as adorable as can be!! I so love the cutout of the bunny and the darling sentiment. The different papers and colors are great!! I just know your grands are gonna love them. Have fun dying eggs. I bought hubby set or PAAS Color Snaps that I found at Hobby Lobby Saturday. You just paint the eggs. I think he will have fun with them. Yeah, even at his age he still loves to do eggs!!!! :)

These are just plain ole cute! Love this sweet bunny design, and your different colors for each card is sure to delight each child that gets one. They will adore the wobble eyes too. So happy to hear the good report on DH. All those prayers worked a miracle, thank the good Lord for that. All praise due to Him. Enjoy your little ones, and have a ball with the egg dying. That's so much fun. Something they will long remember too, in the days ahead. Hugs to you both. TFS & Happy Easter. MM

Hope hubby is doing well and your dog is okay. Your cards are so cute with the fun eyes. Grandkids are wonderful. It's a double edged sword. It's fun to see them grow up but I miss their childhoods! Have a terrific Easter.

These are adorable, Brenda. The girls will love them. So glad hubby is doing well and your little dog is doing better. I hope you are well, too.
You asked about my advent frame. I bought it from Silhouette America around Christmas. It's usually $40.00 but they had it on sale. With the sale and shipping it cost $31.00. It came put together but in shipping it wasn't very sturdy so hubby glued and renailed and braced the corners. It's an easy way to change things up quickly.
Sorry, probably more info than you were expecting. lol

Jaren said...

These cards are precious! Love the eyes!

Sheila H said...

These are just darling, Brenda. I love that the design makes it so easy to create multiple cards :)

Hi Brenda - we've just returned from a most fabulous visit with my family (my 4 year old niece and 2 year old nephew are becoming more and more precious each time I see them!), and finding your comments have made the sadness of leaving more bearable! You are such a treasure and delight; each time your name pops up with a comment, my day is immediately filled with sparkle! I hope your Easter was excellent, and that this week (actually, all weeks!) sees you happy, energetic and, hopefully, if time permits, delighting us with a card or two! You're incredible - a gift and blessing in my life! Huge hugs~c

Thoughts for you and your Hubby! Battle on! :-)

Caroline said...

I really did miss you and your crafty creations, this week. I hope you are feeling better really soon. You are definitely a friend to me and I appreciate your friendship. I certainly understand funkiness, I seem to be blessed with that infirmity myself at times.

Hugs,
Caroline
