Easter Eggs

Simon Wednesday Challenge BlogNo matter how early I start I end up in a rush before each holiday. Fortunately, this one doesn't have too far to go & should make it in time. I really wanted to use my Memory Box egg dies for at least one card & decided they'd work great for the current challenges at Dynamic Duos & SSS Wednesday. The soft purple & yellow papers were in my scrap boxes--always nice to use some of them & it qualifies my card for Pixies Snippets Playground.  I die cut the MFT wreath in yellow felt for added texture & used my Wink of Stella pen on the bow & intricate egg layers.  I also added some yellow Stickles to the eggs & an enamel dot to the bow.  The large scalloped circle is a Spellbinder & I stamped it with Impression Obsession Spatter using Versamark. Fun card going to a house with kids, so hopefully it will be enjoyed.  Thanks so much for visiting my blog.

I'm with you about the holiday thing. I start in advance and then the holiday is here and no cards are sent... or finished. How does that happen? You card is lovely. I love purple and yellow, they are so Easter-y.

What a fantastic shaped card, Great!! So darling for Easter!! I'm sorry I've been missing because of all the stuff going on here getting ready for Easter and company. I just love springtime. I was caught up short getting my Easter cards out the door, too. It's nice to know I'm not the only one! I hope all is going well with Fritz. He looks so very handsome with his haircut!! Happy Easter!! Hugs, Darnell
