Egg Hunt

Wow!  It is really amazing these days when I am able to get more than one card completed in a week, let alone a month.  I managed to make another card this week because I really liked the sketch from Crazy 4 Challenges this week.  I thought I would make some kind of Easter card for this challenge.  I really love the stamp I used from Serendipity Stamps.  They have the cutest Easter stamps!  This card definitely gets me excited for Easter and taking my daughter on her first Easter egg hunt where she will actually understand and look for the eggs.  I can't wait for that!  I hope everyone reading this has a Happy Easter.  Thanks for looking.

Here is the sketch from Crazy 4 Challenges:

Here is my card:

  • Stamps:  Serendipity (Main image); PTI (Sentiment and Sentiment Frame)
  • Paper:  PTI Cardstock, Imaginisce DP
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Rich Cocoa, Cantaloupe, and Copics
  • Accessories:  Stickles, Crystals, Spellbinder's Nestabilities

PTI March Blog Hop a little too late!

Well I had intended to use this card for the PTI March Blog Hop, but didn't finish with the card, pic, and blog entry until too late.  Two minutes too late to be exact.  That is what happens when you have an unexpected vehicle problem and then have to deal with a baby and toddler!  I also made this card based on this week's SCS Card Sketch Challenge #325.  For the blog hop, we were challenged to use embroidery floss in a fun and inventive way on our project. This could include stitching, wrapping it around and tying it like ribbon, braiding, accenting tags, embroidered patterns or anything else we could come up with.  I don't think I did anything very inventive.  I just embroidered the stem of my center flower.  Sorry for the photo quality.  My digital camera broke and my husband took this picture on his Blackberry.  I am not very good with photo editing programs, so I couldn't make any adjustments.  Thanks for looking!
