Hippity Hoppity Easters on It's Way

Hippity Hoppity, Easters on It's Way, and all my cards have been mailed. Thank heavens I do not have to tell my mom my card is 150 days early, like I did with my Valentine card. It sounds a little better than, "sorry, my card is late--again." Aren't these colours so spring like?

All paper is by Magnolia, and each image was coloured with Prismacolour pencil crayons and OMS. White acrylic paint appears in areas as highlight. Double-sided tape was added to the bird image, and mini beads were adhered.

This sentiment stamp is from Rivet, and the bunnies and birds are from Inkadinkado. The bunny and birds are this month's Inkadinkado special. Backgrounds were embossed with my Cuttlebug.

Double-sided tape was added around this image as well, and mini beads were adhered. As you can see, these cards required extra postage. I went to Michigan to mail these cards to my family, who live in the US, and was pleased the cost was only 60 cents each to mail--and that is with extra postage. My Easter cards last year cost me $1.80 each to mail to my family from Ontario. Mail travels so fast in the United States. I can mail a letter from Michigan on Friday, and by Monday my family and friends have their card . Just to mail within Ontario can take 8 days with Canada post. I don't mind having to pay extra postage because the embellishments really add to the card.

Have a nice weekend.

Stamping Hugs,
Beth

These are just all so adorable! Congrats on getting them mailed in time...I'm guilty of the same sins LOL!

I am with you on the Canada Post issues. It can take 5 days to get a letter to Calary, which is 150km from me, yet a letter from the states arrives in about 3 days. I wish our system were better, even a teeny bit better!
