You're Egg-Stra Special & Thankful Thursday

Hi, everyone Hope it's been a good week....

Thankful Thursday

... and that you've stayed safe and sound during this stormy week.

Tonight, I'm incredibly thankful for the calm after the store. We came pretty close to being hit by some seriously nasty weather last night. We are sooooo thankful that wasn't the case.

You're Egg-Stra Special

Tonight's card was made for an egg-stra special Stampin' Up! demonstrator.

Recollections paddywhack dp; Stampin' Up! green and black card stock; Distress Ink core paper
SU basket bunch images and sentiment, stamped in DI black soot, and dies
Paper Smooches holly jolly tag image
eggs stamped on Distress-Inked Recollections white paper
small hearts: SU owl builder punch; SU whisper white twine
adhesives: Scotch ATG; Zig 2 way glue pen; Zots dots; foam backing

I went with a rainbow color palette to play along with the Simon Says Make a Rainbow Challenge, and I thought this dp paper was a perfect backdrop to pop the basket and showcase these multi-colored eggs.

In addition to the SSS Challenge, I'm going to share this at:

Parting Thoughts

Good news, bad news. The bad news is that we messed up our W2CB linky. The good news is that means you have a few more days to play along. See you at Words 2 Craft By.  :)

That's it for tonight. Have a nice Friday and a great weekend. Until next time, thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!

  2. I love this beautiful basket of eggs Easter design.

  3. What an absolutely happy and vibrant card! This reminded me of everything good about Easter (especially the egg hunts). I love how you built an entire scene here and how the eggs are so vivid. This is a beautiful card and I'm so glad you shared it with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
