Egg-stra Sweet

Happy Sunday!  

It's back!  My mojo has returned and is in high gear!  Somewhere over the last day or so it finally decided to pop up, thank goodness!  I was so frustrated I was about to shut my craft room door and take a reluctant sabbatical.  Whether it was the approach of "spring" (sssh! Winter's listening!) and lots of sunshine or what, something knocked the cobwebs out of the ole right side of my noggin'! 

So, this morning I have a fun and springy Easter card to share.   I even had the chance to take my photo outside and use beautiful natural lighting.  It's a good day!

STAMPS: Eggs & Sentiment (Paper Sweeties); 
PAPER: Lime cardstock.  White cardstock base; DP - Pebbles Basics.
INK: Black Tuxedo (Momento).
EXTRAS: Basket die, grass die, bow die (Impression Obsession); Egg die (Paper Sweeties); White ball fringe ribbon (Pink Posh). Pink enamel dot.

I'm playing in a new challenge today too --- over at Paper Sweeties.  I recently had the opportunity to meet Debbie, owner and designer of Paper Sweeties Stamps.  She's a fellow North Carolinian just down the road in Chapel Hill.  She was so kind to invite me to her monthly local card class she gives and I had sooo much fun!  Going back as often as I can!  Her stamps are so adorable, centered around the old fashioned paper dolls idea (if you're old enough like I am to remember and actually played with paper dolls)!  The eggs here in my basket are her stamps. The sentiment is also Paper Sweeties. The polka dot egg even has a matching die.  They were perfect to use in my basket die from Impression Obsession.  Don't know if you can see in my photo, but the basket has a basket weave design on it.  So darn cute!  The grass die is also from Impression Obsession.

I couldn't resist using all my polka dot paper from Pebbles Basics and slipped in some matching blue chevron from the pack too.  The lime green dot however, is from my stash and I cannot remember where it's from.  The sweet little bow die is from Impression Obsession too.  They have the cutest and most inexpensive dies.  The white ball fringe ribbon is from Pink Posh (got to order some more of that).

For The Following Challenges:

Egg-stra Special Blessings!
