Have an Eggcellent Easter!!

Spring is definately NOT here at the moment, once again we were inundated with snow! We got a total of 8 inches yesterday. It was so crazy....we got 3 inches in 40 minutes. One minute you looked outside and it was cloudy, the next minute you couldn't even see the backyard because of blowing snow! Needless to say I needed something springy and cheery to cheer me up. So I spent the day in my craft room (with various interuptions from the kids...darn kids! lol). I have to say that this Tilda is going on my top 10 favorite list. She is sooo adorable!



Once again I watercolored with water based markers. Her skin and shoes are colored with copics. I like them the best for skin. The cart and eggs are also colored with copics. I'm trying to use all copics, but my inventory is a little scarce. Little by little I'm building it up.

I made an easel card again. I think it's my favorite template, LOL! Cardstock is SU, DP is SU, butterfly dp is K&Company. I embellished with stickles, K&Comany sparkles, the little chick is from JoAnns. The white border is a SU border punch. Flowers are Prima.
I hope it is nice and warm in your part of the world. In the meantime, I going to go make some hot chocolate to keep me warm! I can't wait until Spring arrives.

Thanks for stopping by today, it was great to see you again!!

Love it! Yes, we all need a breath of Spring... we got snow here too after weeks of dry streets, it was a shock. Luckily it melted in few hours... even up here in the Great White North, we are more than ready for Spring!

Wonderful card... so pretty!

Adorable! I love the little chick and the calla lillies. Great layering of the papers, too. I can't believe all of that snow. We had our worst season in more than ten years, but at least it's gone here now. Come on over to Maryland...the only precipitation here right now is yucky rain. Better yet, let's all go to Hawaii! LOL. Gina
