Happy Easter... live with Passion!!

Happy Easter everyone!! Spring is in the air and the chocolate bunnies are in full force this weekend... :) Yum!! (I'll just look at them from a distance!)

First, I just want to let you know I did have some blogging troubles where my comments were not coming in so I missed out as they are popping up now. So don't think I forgot about you and will be stopping in to your blog for a nice visit soon!! :)

Last night I got into my craft room to stamp.. it felt so good! I wanted to make a card using my NEW set Inspired by Nature. I just {{LOVE}} the tall grass. So I though I'd try a calm earthy card with a simple sentiment that came with the set. Now, do you remember that dragon fly? It's from SU!... Bunch O' Bugs which is retired, but I enjoy dragonflies. Why give the butterflies all the fun lately... He!

The card is pretty basic! Not sure if this would qualify for a CAS card. (Clean and Simple) My dragonfly was stamped in Craft Chocolate Chip and then clear EB over Close to Cocoa CS. Then cut out!

Enjoy!! Have a super weekend my stampin' friends and thanks for poppin' in for a visit.

Happy Easter!! Smiles... Michelle

LOVE LOVE LOVE this card. The nature theme and colors are fabulous. I love that grass set and have been thinking about getting it. Now that I see this, it moves right up to the top of my wish list. I really like how you embossed the "water" panel and popped up the dragonfly.
