…Egg-stra Fun Greetings

Happy Valentine’s Day!  I promised that I wouldn’t be sharing any more mushy-love cards (even though it IS Valentine’s Day), so I’m keeping my word!  Instead I have a Spring/Easter creation to share…check it out!

I received me “Buckets of Love” stamp set from There She Goes a while back, and I forgot all about it!  I wanted to do something a little outside the box, so I came up with this…too kooky???  I collage-stamped the eggs image in Black Ink and colored them all with Copic Sketch Markers. I added some grass by using the MFT Fresh Cut Grass Die-namics die then matted the entire focal panel with Black Cardstock.  The focal panel still looked a little plain, so I added some Paper Piercing around the colored portion only.  It still needed something else, so I cut some clouds out using White Felt and  another MFT die called Cloud Trio…I thought that was a nice touch {and a little unexpected at the same time}.  I have all of these dies from MFT and I hardly ever use them, so I’ve decided to make a conscious effort to use them more often!  GO, ME!!!  LOL!  I added some Black Saddle-Stitched Ribbon around the focal panel to finish it off, then attached the panel to a Raspberry Fizz Cardstock base with several Dimensionals.  I’m pretty stinkin’ pleased with the way it turned out…what do you think?

That’s it for me today!  Thanks for stopping by, and I’ll see you all back here in the next couple of days.  I’m thinking of taking a little hiatus from the computer in order to get my house back in order.  It’s tidy, but I need to clean up some baseboards and closets or I will go NUTS!  LOL!  Wish me luck, and I’ll see you all later!  Until then…
