I made this card quickly to send to my son for Easter. I thought I could cut corners by using funky foam instead of a few layers of card stock to build up the eggs. Unfortunately with the stitched borders on these eggs, this leaves an indent in the funky foam so lining up the image meant the funky foam could still be seen so I had to trim some of the foam which made it a little messy. Definitely not one of my better cards but I'm sure my son will love it and appreciate the work that went into it.
I decided on this sentiment from A Good Egg from Waltzing Mouse Stamps because he's been a bit down lately with all the bad news on Covid-19 - he's a very sociable person and the isolation has been tougher on him than most. The sentiment actually was one long sentiment and I'm afraid I performed a little surgery on it to break it up into two lines - I can always join it up again later.
I'd like to say I added that yellow egg to brighten up the card a bit but you as fellow card makers know a cover up when you see one - turns out Versafine ink takes a fair while to dry!
I'm entering this card in the following challenges
Cuttlebug Mania - Put a Bunny on it;
The Sisterhood of Crafters - Easter;
Make My Monday Challenge #145 - Easter or Spring;
As You See it Challenge #246 - Easter Thoughts
My thoughts this Easter go to my two older sons who won't be here for Easter. Today I've organised their deliveries of chocolate. On Easter Sunday I'll be having an Easter egg Hunt in the garden with our youngest. My thoughts will also be with my choir friends who I would normally sing with on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I miss them terribly but am too afraid of risking my husband's and youngest son's health to join them. Masks may provide enough protection but then again, this is an incredibly contagious virus and a deadly one for some.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed your visit. If you leave a comment, I’ll be over the moon! I’ll also know you were here, so I can check out what you’ve been up to and we can get better acquainted!
