My Thoughts - Eggsactly

Good morning! I seem to have a few 'eggstra' minutes on my hands this morning. Can you guess why? It's because grandpa and grandson fell asleep on the lazy boy recliner just a bit ago. How very sweet they look napping together. Anyway, that means I have about 30 minutes to get this blog posted and back on the job, so here goes... Here's the other card the ladies made at Hostess Club in March. Since we're getting near the Easter season, it's time to think of those Easter cards we want to send out. Usually I go for a more Christ related theme, but thought this one would be fun and 'eggsactly' right. Stamps: Easter Blossoms Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Confetti White, with Springtime Vintage Designer Series Paper Ink: Soft Suede, Daffodil Delight, Marina Mist, and Pretty In Pink Accessories: choices of Very Vanilla Seam Binding Ribbon or 5/8" Satin Ribbon, Basic Pearls or Rhinestones, Subtle Collection Designer Buttons, Hemp Twine, and Mini Glue Dots Oops, looks like I messed up and took a pic of my sample for the 'before' choices and not the finished one. Each of the ladies used either rhinestones or pearls in the center of their eggs. Really cute, but you'll just have to imagine them on my sample card! Then there was the choice of ribbon. With the seam binding ribbon being fairly new, I wanted to use it on this card. After this one was made, I got the idea for the Vanilla Satin Ribbon. Oooh, so much more rich and elegant looking. And with it being a little wider and heavier, it scrunches up in the middle nicer than the seam binding. There was a choice of the blue or rose buttons also. Both looked very nice with the card. It was a hard choice. I wish I would have taken a picture of the ladies' cards when they were all finished. With the many options and how the 'eggs were laid' out, I don't think any two cards were totally alike! One of the ladies even made her card a landscape style and moved the components all around. So I guess you could say this card has the possibility to be 'eggstraordinarily' different! And that's enough egg jokes for today. Happy April 1st! Don't get fooled too much. Have a fabulous day!

I love your egg card. Now I wish I'd purchased that set.
