Easter & Eggs

Good Morning Everyone!  I hope all is good with you.

I missed out on last week's post due to a surgery that I am recovering nicely from, so I'm happy to be back today to bring you my make for this week's Craft Heaven Shop inspiration.  This week's theme is Easter and Eggs.

This cutie pie is Little Miss Tilda.  Isn't she just too stinkum cute in her little bunny costume?!?  She is from the 2015 Sakura collection.  I've colored her up with Copic Markers and Distress Inks.

This is my 2nd time working with Maja design paper and I'm totally loving it!  I know it's been around a while and most everyone knows this but it isn't widely available in the states and so I'm a little behind the band wagon.  Awesome stuff though, especially if you love the vintage/shabby look like I do.

As most of you already know, I usually make my own flowers and that's mainly because I have no idea where to even start when buying them.  Where and what to buy, which colors will I need for a card that I haven't even thought of yet...  YIKES!  It's always been an overwhelming thought.  Putting these together was actually quite easy since several of them were bundled together.  I added the brown Lollipop Fringe flowers which I die cut using a Cheery Lynn die and Maja paper and used a DooHickeys die for the leaves..

I cut the egg tag by hand using a template that I printed from the computer.  I've hand stitched all around the edges of the tag and the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Much more information can be found below including the challenges I would like to participate in and a supply list.  Have a wonderful day!
Hugs & Kisses,
Laura C.
