Happy Superbowl Sunday!

Instead of sharing a football themed card with you today I'm going to jump ahead to Easter and show you the little card I just finished. My eggs4Easter set from The Stamps of Life by Stephanie Barnard arrived yesterday and so last night when I couldn't sleep I crept to my craftroom and starting stamping.

This was a fun card to put together. I knew I wanted to put the eggs in a basket so I cut strips of kraft cardstock and inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Next I created a weave pattern with the strips and placed them in a circle Nestabilites and ran it through my cuttlebug. To create the basket handle I ran a piece of kraft through my cuttlebug with two Nestabilties circles using just the strip between to two dies.

I spent most of the afternoon yesterday creating paper flowers like the one of this card. I keep seeing them on other people's cards so I decided to try making them. It was a wonderful project to do while watching a movie with my DH. I now have a glass canister full of assorted colors of paper flowers with button centers.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you're having a wonderful weekend. I'm planning to watch the Superbowl later to see the commercials. Since we're Packer fans I can watch more for the commercials than for the game. Happy Stamping!
