Just in time for Easter...

Well hello there and a very happy Thursday to all you crafty peeps.
I know I have been MIA, but so much has been happening in my personal life that I just needed a little bit of time to regroup. Did ya miss me??? LOL

I have some really cool news to share with you though. Shortly after my last post to you I learned that some amazing people over at that awesome paper-crafty social network affectionately known as, The Outlawz invited me to join their very talented Design Team, permanently. 
Yup, you heard me right, lil' o me. 

You probably know that I recently had the opportunity to get my feet wet by guest designing on their site for the month of March. 
I wasn't sure if I was ready for a position like that, but if you know me personally then you know that I live by the motto, nothing ventured, nothing gained. Boy oh boy, am I happy that I did because now I have the confidence to take it to the next level. 
Thank you Colleen, Anne and Sandi for encouraging me, and for believing in me, I promise I won't let you down! all I can say! I'm dancin' on the ceiling.
So as of today, I am now an official design team member on the group challenge called, Twisted Thursdays. I will be posting a card or a project, but more likely a card, every Thursday so stay tuned. 

The Twisted Thursday Challenge Group is where you create cards, layouts and other creations using your favourite medium or combination thereof, in an "Anything Goes" kind of design. The "twisted" part is making the card using the theme of each week, and in this case it's an Easter card. There are monthly prizes to be won, and you can even boost your chance to win by making a card using the theme of the week. It sounds easy peasey to me, what do you think? 

So what are you waiting for, come on over and join us.  Enter your card/project into a challenge that suits your fancy, we have one for each day of the week. You can win prizes from some fantastic sponsors each month, so pop on over and take a look. Even if you weren't to win you most certainly will make friends along the way.

So without further ado, this is the card I made for this weeks "Easter" themed challenge. 

I used a Stamping Bella image by Mo Manning called 
Row of Eggs with Bunny. I used Memento Ink on Neenah card-stock, and coloured it up using my Copic Markers. The DP I used is from DCWV Citrus collection. I did a little embossing on the lower half using a SB embossing folder, added some stickles to the stripes up above, and finished it all off with an EK Success border punch.

I also added stickles, and some glossy accents on the eggs, ladybug, and butterfly. I tried something a little different this time with the little flowers. After I coloured them I made little cardstock flowers and glued them on top. I was trying to get a little bit more definition, but I'm not sure if I accomplished that. Either way I'm happy with the finished product. 

I hope you pop over to the site and play along with us this week. Thanks again for taking the time out of your busy day to leave me much appreciated comments, and for simply stopping by :)S
