M5D Floral Cross Easel Easter Card

Can you believe that Easter will be here in just a couple of weeks?  Now that winter is gone, I fear that my Spring and Summer will just fly by.  I want to capture every warm and happy moment that it has to offer. To remind me that Spring is here now, I have created this easel card with a beautiful M5D digi image that has just recently become available along with a nice variety of new Spring/Easter digis that have been added to the M5D store.  They are so wonderful that I am wondering how I will find the time to use them all as quickly as I would like to.  If you haven't been over to the M5D store yet, now is the time to pay them a visit.  Along with my M5D digi, I also used some other M5D items including wood paper dies, tiny roses and half pearls.  I used the Priscillastyles envelope kit to create my box envelope, and it is all ready to go to someone for Easter.  I have not yet decided who though ; )

I hope you enjoyed your visit here today, and please feel free to leave me a comment to let me know what you think of my creation.  I look forward to hearing from you and appreciate the time you take to leave me a message.  Have a beautiful day!!

Hi Carolyn..this is just beautiful. You've done an amazing job with all those challenges. I know what you mean about spring and summer. Mind you, apparently we have a nasty coldfront coming in. -17*C tonight with the windchill. Yesterday was PLUS14!!

Thanks so much for joining us at FBW this week.
