You're A Good Egg

Happy Friday! Before I get to my card tonight, I have to take care of a little business. First I must announce the lucky winner from the WMS March Release Blog Hop. One winner was already announced here, but the second winner comes from my Blog Hop post. And the winner is...

"Love the idea of not having to color, still looks beautiful!"

Congrats, Nancy! Make sure you contact Claire, if she hasn't already reached you first!

And, the second order of business is a Waltzingmouse Stamps St. Patrick's Day blog hop on March 17! Don't worry; if you are short on St. Pat's stamps you can join in by using a digital stamp that Claire will make available for free! Sign up for the hop will be through the WMS Forum here. How much fun will this be?!

And now, onto a fun card on a Friday night. I couldn't help but think of my fellow WMS design team member, Bonnie, when I created this card. If you know Bonnie, then you'll know why:


I downloaded the tag shape from the online Silhouette store and cut it out with the digital cutter. I did some background stamping on the tag using Off Beat Backgrounds and added pierced holes in the scallops. My favorite part of the card are the egg shells, which I made with my oval dies. I used a small pair of sharp scissors to cut the eggs to resemble cracked shells. I colored the little chick from L'il Buddies with colored pencils and stamped him again so that I could cut out the the egg and pop it up with foam mounting tape. I like the dimension it gives to the card:


There you have it! So from one good egg to another; have a great night and an even better weekend! The sun was shining brightly here today and I think it did a world of good! Spring is coming...it is!
