Easter card marathon

My sister was off work this week for spring break so she asked me to take a few vacation days and go to her house and play with our paper stuff and make some cards. I packed up paper, supplies, and basically the kitchen sink and drove there on Saturday. I had to stop once to get air in my tires because all the supplies causing my tires to go flat. hehe....just kidding. but it sure seemed like it!
So my sis got a record 40 cards done in the three days!! Since I had made my Easter cards before I left, I played with the Cricut while she made hers. Here is a picture of her Easter cards in front of her adorable quilt and Easter decorations.
Isabel made this card using a Tulip embossing folder for the outer edge and Easter eggs from a stamp set called Easter Blossoms.My sis is so clever. We went to Michael's and she was looking for a balloon punch so she could cut out all the little eggs. She found the perfect size in the Martha Stewart section. She stamped the egg in various colors and cut it out with the punch and only had to trim off the little balloon tail. Plus, she bought it with a 40% off coupon. Woohoo!
Here are her other two cards. Both using Stampin' Up! decorator papers and that Easter stamp set.
I'll post some more pictures of more cards in the next few days. Whew, I've got some unpacking to do and get ready for work tomorrow. :o(
