Happy Easter! (late) and March Stamp-A-Stack Card #1

Hope you had a very Happy Easter! I had originally planned on sharing the Stamp-A-Stack cards sooner, but it was a little crazy around here getting ready for Easter. We had 20 people here for the day! John grilled the ham and I made a triple batch of my family's favorite cheesy potatoes. Everyone brought the rest of the meal, and as usual we had way too much food! It was a really nice day and a great way to celebrate 1 month in our new house!

On to the cards from the March 31st Stamp-A-Stack... 


Stamp Set: Outlined Occasions (Sale-A-Bration), Mixed Bunch

Colors: Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette, Pear Pizzazz, Basic Black, Whisper White

Accessories: Blossom Punch, 3/8" Pleated Ribbon- Riding Hood Red

The white card front is 5 1/4 x 8", folded in half and layered on a piece of Riding Hood Red that is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2".

This card was CASE'd from a swap I received, but there was no name on it. I turned it and changed the colors.
