Easter Eggs

These are the Easter eggs I decorated and filled for my daycare kids. 
I apologize for the poor pictures.  It was hard getting a good shot of them.
I found the eggs at the dollar store and filled them with toys and some snacks.
I opted not to use Easter grass.  I hate vacuuming that stuff up.  It is almost as bad as glitter. 
I figure all of my parents probably feel the same as me.

Project Details:
Plastic eggs:  Dollar Tree store
Names:  Base Camp Cricut cartridge cut at 1.75 and 1.5 inches
Rabbits:  Easter Cricut Cartridge cut at 1.75 and 2 inches
Flower border:  Mickey and Friends Cricut cartridge cut at 1.75 inches

Bestie Birthday

Today's card is a birthday card for my Sister-in-law. 
I used one of my new Besties images.  Isn't she cute?  My daycare kids would love her tights.  Mismatched socks are all the rage with them right now.  I colored her with copics and then painted her dress and headband with extreme glitter paint.  I added stickles to her flowers.  I found this Happy Birthday sentiment stamp in the back of my stamp drawer.  I think it has been back there for 10 years!  Time to use it!

Happy First Day of Spring!!  Today one of my favorite young people celebrates his 11th birthday!
He loves snakes so I couldn't resist making him a card with a snake even though it creeped my out to color it.  He loves snakes so much that he has started spending time with a conservation agent looking for them. He has even spent some time on our farm looking in the barns and sheds for them.  Better him than me!

Rapunzel Birthday Card

Here is my dt card for Aud Sentiments.  The challenge is to create a project for a girl and of course, to include a sentiment.  I made a birthday card for a special young lady.
The image is Rapunzel from The Paper Shelter. I love the flowers in her hair.  I had some flowers that were similar so I used them as an accent and then used yellow gems for the centers. I used the gems in her hair as well.  After coloring the image, I used gold and pink spica pens on her hair ribbon, jewel in her hair and on her belt.. Love those spica pens.  They are just perfect for adding a touch of glitter to small areas.

Mother's Day Card

The challenge at Creative Craft challenges is to create a Mother's Day card.
I hope you join us in this challenge.  Just link up your cards to the challenge blog for your chance to win a prize from Crafty Ribbons.
After coloring the wings and dress with copics, I painted with extreme glitter paint.  I  use the hologram paint and it gives a nice glittery finish that dries very fast.  I also painted the butterflies with the extreme glitter paint and then added some stickles on top for some extra glitter and sparkle.
