Easter Egg...

Hi all!!

Well when the challenge at Uniko was announced I panicked - 
I don't send Easter cards as such and certainly had no Uniko Easter stamps -
 so had to put my thinking cap on!

This is what I came up with......
I downloaded an egg template from Google 
and cut it out leaving me with either the actual egg cut out or the negative 
- so I taped the negative onto a blank piece of card 
and chose the Uniko stamp set - Background Builders Vines, 
repeatedly stamp in spring colours to create the egg shape......and voila!!



Thank you for stopping by!

Washi 21st....

I've had a busy couple of days making cards and enjoyed every minute of it!

Here is a card that I want to enter in the challenge at

a new number die set from Stampin' Up.
The sentiment was computer generated before I die cut the square with 
the MFT wonky stitch square die.
