Easter Egg

I wanted to get on my computer last night but my husband was using it to do our taxes. And tomorrow night my daughter will be over to do her taxes using my computer so I better get my card posted tonight or I won't get to post it for a while. LOL! The weekend will be busy since Tom's parents will be visiting and we'll be out at Baby Creek without Internet access. So I'm working on some Easter cards to send.

Isn't this fun. I found this scrap of designer paper that I used on my in-laws Christmas cards. So I matched some of the colors from it to make the layers. The image is from Bugaboo Stamps. The sentiment is part of Studio G Easter stamp that also has a little duck on it. I covered the duck before inking and after I had the sentiment inked I pulled the tape off and stamped the sentiment. The Easter eggs are another stamp that has 5 eggs on it with various patterns. It's also a Studio G stamp. I stamped them on a scrap of card stock and colored them with a mixture of Copics and Bic markers. I added a faux stitched border around the image after I distressed the edges with Squeezed Lemonade Distress ink. I am entering these challenges:
The paper has arrived that I ordered for my daughter's wedding invitations. I can start folding and make a mock up for her to see. We also have any idea for the centerpieces that I am excited about. If you have any ideas for  favors we can use I'd be thrilled to hear about them. The these is Moments of Magic and her colors are cornflower blue and silver.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope the first half of your week has gone well. Here's to an awesome second half and weekend!

Oh, this is adorable, Donna! I love the bright colors!! I don't really have any original ideas for favors, but when my son and DIL got married they had a "candy bar." A long table filled with all shapes of clear vases (purchased at thrift stores) filled with only white candies. White Jordon almonds and white-chocolate you-name-it, etc. There were tongs in each and little paper cups and it was a huge hit. It's originally a Martha Stewart idea, I think. That's really awesome that you are going to do the invitations! Hugs, Darnell
