Paper Sweeties April 2020-Release Sneak Peeks!

Hi, friends!

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter despite the fact that many things have changed to make this year's Easter a different celebration.  The highlight of yesterday was having church service in our church parking lot.

Even though we couldn't be in close contact with the pastor and other church members it was great seeing their faces!  It was fun during the service to listen on the radio and honk our horns.  I so hope that we are able to do it again next week!

Pastor Becky has been such an uplifting bright light in our lives by streaming the services on the internet, and today was certainly a special day!  And, now onto my card.

Welcome to Paper Sweeties April Release Sneak Peeks!

Debbie is releasing new stamp sets this month with coordinating dies called Have a Happy Day and Just a Note, which will be available for purchase tomorrow!.   Today I am highlighting the set Have a Happy Day!  I just love the pretty wreath and sweet bird in this new set!

For my card, I started with a mint card base.  The plaid paper is from Echo Park.  The background was made using distress inks of cracked pistachio, mustard, seed, picked raspberry, and broken china using the "smoosh" technique.  The wreath, bird, and sentiments were embossed in gold.  The scalloped circles are from the set Sweet Cuts-Circle Scallop Frames.  Nuvo Drops of Strawberry Jewel and Caribbean Ocean were applied to the scallop circles.  A yarn bow and sequins (Bubblegum) to finish the card.

Project Supplies:

I had lots of fun making this "tweet" card!  I hope you take a peek at the list below of my talented teammates to view more inspiration! 

Thank you so much for taking the time to drop by today!
Have a wonderful day!
Take care, hugs!


  1. Your service sounds fun! I love the colourful, splashy background on this cute card.

  2. Well the Archbishop here did his service from his kitchen!!! How weird are things right now... Lovely card and terrific BG... Be safe and well my friend!

  3. Oh Maria this is absolutely adorable, and I love, love your pretty background!!

  4. Our church is doing the service from the parking lot too. You can listen on the radio and see the pastor. The flower cross is simply beautiful in your picture. The colors in your card are so pretty and the bird in the nest is so cute. I love how you always use your pattern paper on your cards.

  5. Looks like your church service was a great way to celebrate Easter without breaking the rules! Love your tweet little card too with the plaid peeking out from the edges :) So cute!

  6. Everyone is being so inventive to keep things going and your service looked fun and so very thoughtful x. What a super cute little chick and the background looks so colourful and creative on your lovely card x.

  7. Something must be going on with blogger. I found the gray circle instead of some of my card pictures, but not all of them--so weird! Anyway--fun seeing Easter Sunday church pictures & what a gorgeous floral covered cross next to the pastor! Good to show that you don't have to sit "side by side at church" to worship. Love the background for your sweet card, Maria!
