You're Eggstra Special!

Hello Friends! Happy Sunday to you! I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend. I'm enjoying my last day of Spring break. The weather is wonderful! We had freezing rain last night and this morning there were blue skies with fluffy clouds. The air is crisp and cool and I love it like that.

I was able to crank out a few cards for the challenge over at Paper Crafter's Library. You can see the inspiration piece HERE. It is a beautiful card, by Andrea Walford, featuring three butterflies. So so pretty! I kept the element of three and decided to go the CAS route.

I needed some little cards to tuck inside of the Spring baskets we give to the girls and our niece and nephew. I thought these would be perfect. They came together very quickly. I only glittered the center egg, because it's 'eggstra special' just like each of them. These were fun to make because I didn't have to fiddle and fuss with patterned paper. I just stuck to the basics...stamps, card stock and ink. Hmmm...I may be on to something!

Thanks for dropping in today! I appreciate the visit!

I think you should have made one more of these lovely cards and put it into a basket for yourself. You are very special as well!
