Today for the Clean & Simple Challenge (CAS424) on Splitcoast,  we’re going on an egg hunt! I was pretty good at hunting Easter eggs when I was a kid. In fact, my dad used to make me put some back for my sister & brother. Waaaaaahhhhhh… not fair! Then there was the prize Falstaff egg. No different than any other..just had the word “Falstaff” on it. And I have no idea why, other than it was a beer my dad sometimes drank. So I’d put some back, but if I had the Falstaff egg, I was keeping that puppy!

My CAS card has a big ol’ bunny face, a big ol’ rainbow egg (not the Falstaff, obviously) & and Easter egg hunt sign, in case you didn’t know the way. Colored & fussy cut the pieces, added some grass & clouds and a-bee-a-bee-a-bee-a that’s all folks!

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are Copics I used.

It’s my turn to host the Featured Stamper (FS525) challenge on Splitcoast. I chose Karen, aka redbugdriver, so a big Congrats to Karen! After much browsing, I picked this & this to case…combining elements of both for my card. I kept the cute little girl & layout from the first & the big heart & color from the second. But I used different images & different die cuts. 


 This cute little ballerina kind of reminds me of when my mom put me in ballet class. Except my tutu for the recital was green & orange…and the glittery fabric was itchy as all get out. My regular practice tights & leotard were pink like this little cutie; but we didn’t wear tutus for practice, thank goodness. Apparently I was a bit hyper. Mom also made me take tap, jazz &  acrobatics. Pretty much a full boat of dance classes.

My little pink ballerina was colored & fussy cut. On the front of the white panel, I die cut a big fancy heart then stamped the greeting off to the left & the feet of the ballerina on the right then attached my cutie on top. 

Here’s a look at the inside. I put together 2 greetings for this. Below it are the Copics I used.

I really like the colors in today’s Color Challenge (CC622) on Splitcoast…watermelon, navy & mint. And while at first, they brought to mind flowers or summer, I thought they would also be terrific for a winter card. The dessert option was to use designer paper. Well…I made my designer paper; by stamping the winter words on the mint first using white pigment ink, then stamping them again, slightly offset in the pistachio ink. On the watermelon strip, I stamped them first w/ the coral ink, then in w/white ink.
The mittens were die cut 4 times: once in white, and again in the watermelon, mint & navy colors then paper pieced together. The white snowflake centerpiece was added w/ just one word of the greeting in navy on a leftover circle of white linen c/s. 


Here’s a look at the inside, w/ the entire greeting.
