Egg-tastic Easter!

Hi everyone! 

I'm a couple of weeks early for Easter, but I'm usually late with holiday cards, so I'm going to post this one anyway. LOL

I ordered the 'Fit Planning' set from V's Sweet Ideas and couldn't resist picking up this 'Easter Fun' set as well. Both sets are available for $8.99 each.

My husband and I don't usually do anything special for Easter at our house, but Easter egg hunts were one of my favorite things when I was a child. My mom always made lots of hard-boiled eggs for us to color & decorate, and for her to hide. We always got dressed up for Easter Sunday, but by the time the egg hunt came around, we were usually in comfy clothes. Generally we lived in places where the weather was gorgeous for Easter, and there were always a lot of eggs hidden in tall grass. I enjoyed eating the eggs after the hunt was done. As I got a little older, there were eventually plastic eggs filled with treats. 

Here is the card I made with 'Easter Fun':


The paper is the Wanderlust 6x6 from Studio Calico. I stamped the eggs with Studio Calico Color Theory Inks, and used a Letraset Promarker for some light grey shading to give the eggs some dimension. The basket weaving look is created with Spectrum Noir markers. 

I love the faces on this stamp set! Even though I didn't use them on this first card, there are so many cute options for adding them to the eggs or basket. Next time!

Let me know if you do Easter egg hunts at your house! 
Do you use hard-boiled eggs, or filled plastic eggs with treats? 

Happy Creating!
