What have I done?

I went and made another Easter card.  Now I have to get two out in time for Easter.  Oh, the pressure...
The image I used is by Bugaboo and I think it is so cute. I'm sorry but I can't find where I have the sentiment on my computer, so I don't know who created it.  That's terrible I know.  I colored the image by my favorite way, water coloring with Ranger Distress inks.

The card will be entered in the following challenges:

Easter is coming soon

I used to buy Easter cards and some how never get them mailed.  That is terrible.  So, I've only made ONE Easter card to make my responsibility smaller.
This image is by Stitchy Bear.  I used Ranger Distress Inks to watercolor the image.  I worked on it until I was too tired to work on it anymore.  My neck was killing me!  Hobbies are supposed to be fun, not debilitating!!

Enough of that, and on with the challenges:

For Spring

My card today features love, and I like to think that Spring brings fresh feelings of love.  Always did the trick for me, heh heh.  'Nuf said there!!
I used a digital image by Sami Stamps. Her images are wonderful.  The sentiment is a stamp by Hero Arts.  This card will go to Operation Write Home for someone to send to his or her loved one.
I should be too embarrassed to show this card since there are so many things wrong with it. Hey, DON'T LOOK! 
I'm posting it here because I want to enter into some challenges, especially the Simon Says Stamp one.  I'd like to win that one just once! Here is the list of challenges:

I'm Tickled

I used a Bugaboo image and sentiment on the card I have today and it just tickles me.  Some of you in the retail business may relate to this.
Yes, this is a bright card. Just sort of turned out that way.  One of the challenges I'm entering requires 'spring colors' and I hope my colors comply.  I'm also entering it into a challenge on a spiritual-based challenge blog and I really hope this card doesn't offend them.  Or anybody for that matter!
Here are the challenges I'm entering:

Hope your day has been brightened!

Its a struggle!  The card I am sharing today was quite a struggle for me. I had the stamping (Hampton Arts) done and colored.  I picked the paper, lace and black felt swirly lace.  Then I had the hardest time putting it together.  I tried vertical, then horizontal, this and that, that and this......and finally went with this:
