This one I made for one of my sisters.  I'm going to enter this one into the Twinery's challenge #003 as well. For this one I used Lilac twine.

Banner Easter Cards

I made a few new Easter cards for my family.  This one is going off to my grandparents. 
I am entering this card into the Twinery's TT003 challenge "It's a Banner Day!"  I used their Blossom twine to string the egg banner

Last egg

This is the last egg card that I made.  I popped up the surrounding polka dotted purple bit.  I added texture to the center egg with Darice's Argyle embossing folder, then I brushed ink all over it to give it depth.  Cute.


Here is another Easter card.  For this one, I popped up the center egg, not the surrounding green part.  There's some "blossom" twine in there from The Twinery.  They make a great product.
I'm entering this into PTT's challenge #112 as well 

Egg cards

So I decided that I wanted to make a few more egg-shaped cards since Easter is fast approaching.
This one is probably my favorite of the 3 that I will show you in a minute.  The center egg has 6 different washi tapes making up its pattern and color.  The yellow outside is popped up and I added a fun twine detail.  The twine is from The Twinery (Caribbean color, so pretty).  The card base is a pretty blue cardstock called "Bluebell" from Paper Source.

I had this fun negative image left over after I cut a few clovers for my last project, so I thought I'd fashion another card.  The clover negatives are "Lky Ttl-s" cut from Create A Critter 2.  I used some green chevron washi tape and a large faux bois background stamp.  There's plenty of twine there too, from The Twinery.  I used their Peapod and Honeydew colors.

Green Beer

Lots of great inspiration this week.  This is the card I came up with after I pondered all the fun challenges from my favorite craft blogs.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:
My Craft Spot's Challenge #89 "Tasty Treats"   ...Beer is a treat for me, especially at the end of a long work day, so I figured it'd fly as a "tasty treat".  Feel free to agree or disagree.  It's cool.

"Cheers" Die Cut=Cricut Craft room freebie from months ago.  It's from the Spring Holiday Cards seasonal cartridge.   
Martha Stewart Glitter Glue 
Distress Inks (Vintage Photo and Tea Dye) for inking around the edges
Peachy Keen face stamp from PK-486 In Stitches Face Asst.
Paper Source base card in "Khaki"
Martha Stewart button embossing punch
Sew Easy Floss
White Gel pen for the whites of the eyes
Glossy Accents along mug

Lastly, I'd like to send out a BIG THANK YOU to everyone at Party Time Tuesdays and Eureka Stamps.  My card was chosen for their challenge #108 prize and now I get to pick out 5 digi stamps from the Eureka site.  Thank you, thank you!

oops, almost forgot to put PK's photo inspiration:
