Mojo Monday #76: An Egg-cellent Easter

Happy Friday! Yay! Found time last night to make a card combining the Mojo Monday #76 sketch challenge and the Kristina Color Inspiration #44 challenge! You know what they say...work smarter, not harder! I've never been very good at that actually...



I used the uber-cute An Egg-cellent Easter set from the upcoming SU Occasions Mini Catalog. You might remember from this post that it's available to everyone right now! I loved it the minute I saw it, and I'm not one who usually buys "animals" or artwork that has to be "colored in"...y'alll know I'm lazy!


I applied the bunny girl piece with Dimensionals placed around the edges, leaving the center empty so you could pull the long piece out and use it as a bookmark. That only came to me after I was trying to figure out how to get the ribbon to work with the very cool new grommet (also from the new Occasions Mini Catalog, available April 1, and you can't even see it now behind the ribbon!). I ended up with the little loop accidentally and thought it was cute, so it became a bookmark. The white bunny part might look a little too plain, do you think?



Do you have any exciting plans for the weekend? Do share! Since I was gone last weekend, I'm hanging out and working on the neglected house and dh. Hmmmm, maybe that didn't come out quite right! lol! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

I don't like to color either. I jsut want to make a card and be done with it.
I got a Blackberry, so the plans for the weekend include a lot of playing with that. Hopefully I can make it to my stamp table too.

Aw! Angie, I'm so glad you got this set too, so now I know where to come for inspiration when I need it! Funny for me though, at first I didn't like this set at all, then I saw the vintage qualities and thought I could imagine some really cute stuff with it! Your colors and patterns are adorable and make the simple white panel with the bunny just perfect- not too plain!

Ooh, one more thing, I got a good chuckle out of reading that you needed to work on the house & your hubby this weekend. LOL!! Gotcha! ;)
