Easter Brunch with my ladies group before Easter (bunny basket)

Always enjoy entertaining....love to cook but mostly like to cook when entertaining....we had fresh fruit , ricotta and spinach quiche and a lemon curd dessert...yummy and just enough food....being from a large family I tend to try to serve too much so am trying to cut back....
 Here is the table setting.......
 Love blue....can you tell?.....and the butterflies go so well with the gold plated silverware...
 Here are the cute bunny baskets.....had a homemade marshmellow egg inside....
 Had to use some un SU ribbon but it went well with the blue I chose....

Easter card (Friends and Flowers set from mini) and Sympathy card

I post so much in groups and on my Create with Fran FB site that I overlook my blog ....sorry about that....will try to keep up....sometimes, Life gets in the way....lol



This first one is a card for my sweetie, Orlando....he loves loves loves comical card....so I am always looking for ideas....lol    Used the Friends and Flowers set from the mini for the inside....for the outside used the oval punch and drew the pink area and added the scallop punch for the tail...the honeycomb embellishment was perfect topper....used the crumb cake card stock....the hole was made with the 2 inch circle in espresso.........after using the Woodgrain embossing folder.....I inked my brayer and ran the espresso ink over the woodgrain to pop it....1 3/4 in circle was used as the bunny's torso....
 closeup....
 inside of card....
 This card will be in my upcoming class in April....April 7th is the only class this month...due to Onstage at SLC in April...I used the Heartfelt Sympathy set in the regular catalog....and back to using my white gel pen.....I have made that my mission for OnStage......to pop cards using that pen....at least a few of them....lol
 Used the white seam binding for the ribbon....and the Wisteria and Eggplant card stock....love this embossing folder....I sssssooooo overuse it....but that is what we do with our favs....lol    It is the elegant dots embossing folder used on the Wisteria....
 close up of folder.....used the gel pne for the dots around the eggplant circle and the flowers....the pearls were used as an accent..used the bone folder to curl the small flowers......the flower punch is part of the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack

Grateful Bunch with wink of stella pen

Used the wink of stell on the flower leaves and the mint cardstock around the label...it really popped it....also used it on the butterfly

the enamel dots were perfect on the flower leaves
the dotted background leaves were done in old olive...

some flowere and butterfly were popped




Timeless Textures and Botanical Blooms edgelits,Balloon Builders

Used a piece of smoky slate behind doily to pop the doily...
 Added the flower and card stock in blushing bride....leaves were wasabi...wanted to keep it pastel...going overboard....pearl was the perfect accent

 the butterfly is made from balloon builder set and has the glimmer from the wink of stella pen

Used the timeless texture set in smoky slate to add the vintage look...I like a touch of vintage without
