Happy Easter...


So I started cleaning and organizing the crafty room yesterday and I think I've decided to go through my scrap bags and pull all the Easter/spring papers and put them together for quick reference. I ended up using two scrap papers for my card today and it felt really good to make a bit of room in those scraps. Yes, it will be a mini mission to only use scraps this month and see what I can come up with. And considering I haven't seen many new Easter collections this year the decision is even easier for me to make. 

For my second Easter card this year I chose to use SSC Honey from The Greeting Farm so that I could play along in the FFF challenge this week. The theme is 'ribbon or lace' and I had this giant pink ribbon just sitting on my desk, mocking me. I don't usually go for wide ribbon like this on a card, but this came in a kit so I was stuck with it. I decided to tie it into a bow to mimic the one in Honey's hair (which I slightly altered by wiping away the skull) and pop it on top of that sentiment tag. Yeah! Another bit of clutter off my desk and on a card, I'm on a roll! The cute chicks are a new die from Memory Box that I just cut out off yellow cardstock and used a few Copics to shade in a bit of shape and dimension to. 

Ok, I've got to get a move on.
