Egg Hunt!!

Hello to you all!  Hope your week is being sweet to you!  I'm just warning everyone that the next two weeks on my blog may be a bit skinny---due to all the work I'm doing behind the scenes to get the "Color Me Creative Classroom" up and running and our NEW Mini-Magazine coming April 1st!  I try not to view my to-do list as a whole, cuz' then I get overwhelmed so I'm just working my way down the list one bit at a time, LOL!  But there will be posts everyday and new projects, just maybe not 2 a day :o)  Last night my kid's middle school had a School Spirit Fundraising Night at our local Fuddrucker's and my son entered an eating contest, LOL!!  He had to eat a whole, huge hamburger in a race against teachers, his principal and other students---omgoodness how funny!  Wish I had a picture of it, too fun and the night raised alot of money for the school which is good.  Nothing better than a Fuddrucker's burger, fries and shake I tell ya! Mmmm....mmmm Good!

Easter Egg Hunt

Today I'm sharing my Try It Out Tuesday card for Susana's Custom Art & Card Design store--yes I'm late, seems I'm really behind this week (surprise, surprise)!  Anywho I challenged the DT to a color challenge--pinks, moss/sage green and cream--I added kraft (hey it's a form of cream, hee hee) and soft sky blue!  Cheater, Cheater--yeah I hear ya, LOL--oh well!  I used a fabulous cute image from Elisabeth Bell for SCACD called "Bunnie"--isn't she a doll with her bunny friend?!  The papers are from K&Co's "Life's Journeys" paired with colored cardstock.  The kraft cs was scored with my Scor-Pal in a basket weave pattern to match her lil' basket--very easy to do.

The pretty swirls were made with my NEW SLICE MACHINE--woohooo!  Love that thing cuz I'm not much of a Cricut gal (gasp)--I just don't have room in my craft room to have it set up and it's too much of a pain to pull out all the time.  So enter the SLICE!!  I bought 8 cartridges and I can store it under my table, pull it out when I need it and it's so easy to use!  These swirls are from the "Basics 3" cartridge--I got all the cartridges at  I added some ink to them to distress a bit and then pearls from Kaisercraft and with my NEW White Pearl Pen by Viva Decor (wanting some of these? Susana will have more in stock by Friday--BUT she does have the opal Paper Pen in stock which gives the same effect if you want to make pearls)!  I tied my bow with PTI ribbon and my Bow Easy and then made some hatpins to match!  All of the flowers are by Prima's E-Line except for the small ruffly flowers (see those here).

She was colored with copics (pinks: R22,R21,R20 and Colorless/Blues: B01,B000) and then I added Smooch Illuminate to her bonnet and trims (love this stuff).  Her shoes and eggs got a nice shiny coat of diamond glaze.  I think she's a real cutie!

Now make sure and hop over to the store blog HERE to see the rest of the DT's lovely projects!  I'll see ya back here tomorrow!

  18. Your new card has a very special warmth to it. The softness of the colors used brings the Spring holiday season softly into view. I just used that same background for a sign for my classroom pet..."Max's House!" He's a black guinea pig. I finished my sign just before I opened this email! I really like that background!

  19. Oh she is so sweet. Great card!
