Gosh friends, what a crazy day.  The State Basketball Tournament starts tomorrow and I am ecpecting company.  Bet you can guess how I spent most of  my day.  But, as the day wore on, I knew that I needed to stop long enough to create a catd for my blog and to prepare dinner.  In my fantasy life I have a cook and a housecleaner – how's that for dreaming!

On to my card.  I promised quick & simple and this card is definitely both. Take a look.

The Sweet Sorbet dsp is perfect for an Easter card.  It has many of the delicious pastel colors that we associate with the Holiday.  After stamping the tulips twice with Black Staz On ink, I used a Blender Pen with Crisp Cantaloupe, Summer Starfruit, Pistachio Pudding Gumball Green Ink Pads.  I like the swish of color and it fits perfectly with the dsp.

Because it is such a simple card, I put a coordinating liner in the envelope.  The Envelope Liner Framelits make quick work of the liner.  In order to save dsp, I don't cut the full liner.    Add some snail, and my liner is ready to go in the envelope.

I thin stip of Basic Black cardstock adds just the touch I needed to create a nice border for the dsp. And, the best part is that I used a scrap that I had been hanging on too for just such an ccassion. 

You may wonder why my greeting is not in the location that the stamp shows.  I did some engineering by cutting the tulips and the sentiment apart.  I placed the tulips on one side of my block and the sentiment on the other side.

And the other side.

Now I can use the tulips and the sentiment independent from one another.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
