Easter is approaching


It's been a wild and wacky week. Yesterday, I enjoyed a very long lunch with my bestie; we hadn't "lunched" since November and 4 hours later, we decided that the conversation needed to continue next month. Oh my! Then it was on to my dinner with high school friends that meets monhly; I hadn't seen them since October! And last night, we hosted a St. Patrick's Day dinner for 10 at our house. The corned beef was scrumptious, as well as the colcannon, pea salad and tangerine/avocado green salad. Today, my sister-in-law, who is the best in the world, spent all day helping me sort and purge more stuff from my craft room. We accomplished a lot and will be back at it on Sunday.

For today's card, I'm happy to show the card I started working on earlier in the week. It's a beautiful Easter Egg stamp from Magenta. I embossed it in gold, and colored it with Zig's Clean Color Real Brush watercolor markers. When I stamped the image, I used washi tape as a mask across the middle. Then I used the same tape and applied it 3 times in the blank space. I fussy-cut the ribbons and the egg; foam mounting tape was used to adhere to the card panel. Where there was a butterfly in the stamp image, I used a 3-D butterfly sticker. I used a Marvy brush marker for a faint blush of color on the bunny's inside ear and nose.

Speaking of Magenta, here is a posting on their blog from Ellie Knol. I love the fish and the background she created. Take a look!

I'm anxious to take Marj Marion's Shaker Card class at Art 'n Soul. Since it's midnight, I had better sign off and finish up my evening chores. Thanks for stopping in. I hope the weather is as glorious tomorrow (Saturday) as it was today (Friday) and that you'll find some time to get out and enjoy it!
