Stamp with fun #105–DT project

Hello dear friends, I’m sorry my posts are so late today but I had such a lovely but hectic day yesterday that I was too exhausted to schedule my posts last night.  I also had to go and visit my dad in hospital after work (he’s had a hip replacement) so now is the first chance I’ve had to do them!  My first post is for this week’s stamp with fun challenge.  This week we have a very easy theme for you “Easter” so get ahead of the game and make all your cards and projects in plenty of time!  I have a little story for you lol!  My husband buys fresh free range eggs from a friend in work and they come in the usual boring egg boxes but imagine my surprise when he brought home two girly pink egg boxes last weekend – well the idea to decorate them was immediate and just in time for me to make my DT project.  I didn’t go overboard with the decorating as the colour was too gorgeous to cover up too much but this is what I made (I’ve gone a bit mad with the photo’s sorry):

SWF #105 - Easter

SWF #105 - Easter (2)

SWF #105 - Easter (close up)

Isn’t it just soooooo cute!!!  I have used a brand new image from DigiStamp Boutique called ‘Easter bunny girl’ and is part of the “Easter Collection” which is one of the offers of the month for April.  There are 8 eight images in total. Four main images - all with a girl (added bow) and boy version and they are so sweet.  I’m definitely using them for all my Easter cards this year, so look out for more samples soon.  I have to say I am really pleased with how my bow came out – usually I struggle with bows but it worked out perfectly this time!  Some embossed panels and wild orchid crafts flowers and voila it was done.  I just need to get some yummy cadbury creme eggs or something similar and it will be a perfect Easter surprise for someone. 

The rest of the design team have created amazing samples once again this week, so please pop over and check them out.
