These are Easter eggs that I learned how to make from my dad who was born in 1917. People are amazed when I tell them how they are made! So let me amaze you! Take white raw eggs, wrap them is onion skins from yellow onions (they are brown), wrap that in fabric and tie securely. Boil them as you would any other egg. Peel the fabric and onion skins off and see what happened. The fun part is you never know what kind of design you will get from the skins and pieces of skins!

I have been wanting to use an image from The Graphics Fairy for a card for a very long time! I looked through her images for Easter and found this one. The card turned out how I had imagined it. That is nothing short of a miracle!
I cut the image out with my Spellbinders classic oval large. I used victorian lace ribbon (unknown maker) and the small brown bow with American Crafts velvet rickrack. The blue Stampin' Up paper was embossed with the Victoria Cuttlebug folder. The brown paper is Stampin' Up kraft paper. The kraft paper and the blue paper were distressed with Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress Ink.

Am I the only one who decides to make a card at 9 at night? I kept having to make adjustments so it took me 1 1/2 hours to finish it! I scarfed up some Copic Markers cheap and used them to color the baby's face, hearts, bottle and duckies. Don't ask me which ones I used other than skin white and blush on the baby's face. Oh yeah, carmine red on the hearts. The card is created using a Cuttlebug combo set that is perfect for baby cards.
I paper pieced the sleeper so I had to cut the hands out of other paper and color them in.
I have fallen in love with Glubers!! I saw them on blogs from CHA and knew I had to have me some. This card is the 4th flower I made with my Glubers. I am glad I bought three packages of them because rumor is they are in short supply!
