Did you ever have one of those sugar eggs, the one with the hole and a scene inside? Today’s card is my version of that Victorian Easter tradition and although there is no scene inside (and no sugar either) it just reminds me of those beautiful eggs.
The egg is made using the new oval Framelets from the Spring Catalog. To create an egg-like shape place the smaller oval framelet inside the larger framelet on your card stock and instead of centering it place it closer to one end. When using any framelet it helps to keep it from moving by placing a sticky Post-it note across it. The “egg” is then embossed using the Lacy Brocade embossing folder, also from the Spring catalog, and then covered with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter. The punched flowers have a small pearl in the center. Add the bow and attach over a stamped greeting using Dimensionals giving the illusion of a hollowed out egg. The Wisteria Wonder background is embossed with the Polka Dot Embossing Folder. I did use an old Easter greeting but this would sure be cute with one of the stamps from Everybunny in the center.

I recently bought a new car. A convertible! I have always wanted one and so I was thrilled when I got it. I couldn’t wait to go out riding with the top down and since I live in Florida the weather was just perfect. Well, almost perfect. Our pollen counts have been unbelievably high and it turned out that my allergies meant I had to keep the top and windows up. There is a married couple, Cheryl and Mike, who come to one of my weekly classes and they made me a survival kit with decorated goggles, masks, and a jeweled clothespin to hold my nose closed. How cute would I be wearing this in my new car!
It’s late and I have an early morning demonstrator meeting with a stamp class in the afternoon so I’d better call it a night. Thanks for stopping by.
