Big Sky Stampin' Papercrafting

I have been a crafter most of my life, starting in about 8th grade when I tried to embroider some frogs on a quilt, that I never finished! Although the list of what "I never finished" is long, and includes cross stitch, knitting, crocheting, quilting and more, my latest obsession is paper! I joined Stampin'Up! as an independent demonstrator in October 2011 and have been going like crazy ever since! I offer classes in my home, do catered card parties at your home and sell my cards locally in Bozeman, Montana and around the lovely Gallatin Valley. I would love to meet and talk to you if you are interested in the papercrafting hobby or just need some unique handmade cards for a special occasion!

Rest of the Easter Cards!

Hi Stampers!
We got an Easter weekend surprise of about 2" of snow after 75 degrees yesterday. That is spring in Montana at its finest!

I have some more Easter cards for you. These are ones that were part of my recent card buffet, as well as others that I made and one very special one a friend made.  Here's the first, which is the real reason for Easter, the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

The next one uses the Basket Builder bundle and stamps to create a colorful bunny and egg scene.

The next one uses some retired stamps and paper to call to mind the spring/Easter theme of renewal, rejoice and refresh.

And finally, a special one from a special friend. A little context first... Ever since our son hit about middle school, he somewhat lost interest in hunting for Easter eggs. He still liked the candy, but it was not so much fun to hunt for it, especially when your much older sisters are away at college or even married. Sooooo, I was thinking about something fun we could on Easter that would make a great day for him. After church and a big brunch, we headed to the local gun range with some pistols and practiced target shooting on Peeps!  It's crazy, very disrespectful to Peeps and fun. We've done it several years since and even the girls, son-in-law and our son's girlfriend have joined us!  I've shared this tradition with a few people and a great friend and Stampin'Up! Upline made this card for our family this year. Isn't it great??!!

I just love it and will keep it forever ;)

I hope you have a blessed Easter, no matter what your traditions and celebrations. It is a time to welcome spring, celebrate the resurrection of Jesus and what that means for all people of faith. Have a great weekend!
