Easter is sneaking up on me this year like a quiet little fluffy bunny nibbling on clover in our backyard. Where does the time go?

I did make some fun and pretty Easter cards this year. Here are just a few I thought you might like to see...


This card/envelope design are a free SVG design file I downloaded from the amazing paper engineers at Dreaming Tree.  I made some adjustments and then I used assorted cardstock, embossing folders, highlight inking and embellishments from my Close To My Heart online store to create it.
Speaking of Dreaming Tree, here is another SVG file I downloaded, then cut out and personalized for my needs. You may recognize the paper as being from the CTMH I Heart Us paper packet.

Scattered throughout this blog post you will see pictures of some of the actual team members on the RGV TX Team.

Welcome to my blog Paper Crafting With Rebecca! Today is a different sort of blog entry because, instead of highlighting a paper craft, today it is all about helping a fantastic team of people who work tirelessly to help young women around the world. This blog is the first one in a four part series about the Days For Girls Rio Grande Valley Texas Team and the selfless work they do which impacts and empowers young women internationally.

In this blog series you will learn about what Days For Girls is and what they do (Blog #1), more about the Rio Grande Valley (RGV) Texas Team (Blog #2), what a DFG "kit" is (Blog #3), and how to get involved with a DFG team near you (Blog #4). This blog series will also have ways you can help us today to support this team and the work they do. In addition, because I want it to be even more fun, there will be prize drawings involved!

Color Dare #334
For my three colors I chose Lagoon, Peach, and Gold. I am using white as my neutral color. To start with I gathered some supplies.
