Happy Easter!

Hi Friends! I had every intention to make a Easter Card, but I made the mistake of going to the mailbox and finding this new little stamp set, and I have to say I haven't been this excited about a stamp set in a long time. I went to buy it only a few hours after it was available and it had already sold out! But lucky for me I was cruising Simon Says and they carried it, so I snatched it up! But sad to say it's already sold out there now too :-( It's from a new stamp Company called Altenew...here's the link .The set is called painted flowers. I would love to see them make a smaller rose set too!
With this stamp set it's so easy to put together a card. I was intimated by all the pieces, but you can't go wrong...they work together nicely!
 I used my Stampin' up ink's. They have a nice line of  stamps with different tones that work nicely together. On this card I inked the outline with brown, but the bottom card I used black.

This big sentiment is also from a new Company called Winnie and Walter. I picked up a few sets of the big sentiments they have. They are very nice and ship quickly !! Which is great because I don't know about you, but when I want something I wanted it yesterday lol! I am trying to teach the grand kids to be patient, but I need some 1st lol! I had them last night and we were coloring Easter Eggs and they were wanting to do everthing all at once......normal kids right? I asked them if anyone had ever told them they were impatient and Jasmine says yes, my other Grammy says were like an empty hospital...no patients lol!!
Here's my 2nd card with the same set.I'm linking up to Winnie and Walter's challenge, to join in go here

Here's a few pics of the baby shower...I haven't edited them yet, I'm still recuperating lol!!

My DIL made these cupcakes. I think she did a fantastic job on them!

These were the Thank You bags I made...45 :-)  The Stork's were cut using my Silhouette..and cutting out 45 pieces and gluing them together was quite a task , I bribed a friend to come over and help lol!!I started out using a PTI bag and when I saw how long it was going to take, I carried my fanny to Michael's and bought the bags , so all I had to  do was put the stork's together and  the trim !!

Sorry, bad picture...the place we had the shower was all windows and the shine was bad, but my DIL had a table for everyone to make hair accessories! It was the most popular table !

There was ribbons, and bows, flower, hair bands etc...I'd say Kinley is all set with hair accessories for all ages. These bigger flowers will be great for when she's bigger!

The diaper cake :-)

 The diapers for the guests to sign :-)
 This is the outside of the building where the shower took place. It is so pretty here and surrounded my water with a full deck on the back. It was a beautiful shower, a gorgeous day and Destiny had a wonderful time! I'm so glad! She got pretty much everything she needs for the baby and has her hubby putting it all together this weekend lol!
Well, I think that about does it for me. Long post huh? LOL
I hope you have a wonderful Easter!!!!
Hugs, Char

Gorgeous cards, reminds me of the 2 step stamping roses from Stampin Up, these are much prettier though, I like the larger size. You made 2 gorgeous cards with the set that's for sure! The shower looks like it was a really big hit! Those cupcakes were beautiful too. ~Diane

Oh, what fabulous pics! Such a fun party! I so missed one for our littlest guy. It's always so fun to celebrate a new baby, but I guess once you're working on number three, nobody cares anymore. Tee hee! And those floral stamps are FANTASTIC! NEED! TFS!
