Happy Egg Hunting

Happy Easter!!  I'm delighted to be sharing this special holiday with family.  My daughter and her boyfriend are able to visit this weekend so we're having lots of fun with them.  It's such a joy to have the entire family together to celebrate this very special day.  This afternoon, we'll go to my sister's house for a traditional Easter meal and an egg hunt for the children (young and old!).  I'm also super excited to eat chocolate again!  I had given up my favourite treat for Lent.  It was tough at times but I'm proud of myself for making it through 40 days of no chocolate with no cheating!!


I am elated to be the winner of some SP & Company Easter stamps from my sweet friend, Susie, of Susie Craft Happy.  Susie made sure the stamps arrived before Easter so I was able to create these fun little cards to put at the children's places at the table this morning.  (Thank you SO much, Susie!)  

I created these cards using a die from Jaded Blossom.  The eggs - complete with their scalloped shadows, outlines and fun designs - are all co-ordinating stamps from the SP & Company Easter set.  I popped the top layer for some dimension.  I then stamped a fun little sentiment from My Creative time. 


I mixed up the colours of the cards as our breakfast table is a colourful place with all the sweets on Easter morning.  Our Easter bunny is a rather spiritual one and always adds a large "He is risen!" across the table - spelled out in jelly beans!  These little cards added a splash more colour and excitement to a morning filled with joy and celebration.

It is my prayer that you will have a blessed day, and that in the midst of all the fun, food and sweets, you will take time to give thanks to God for his promise to us fulfilled.  

Happy Easter!!

I like your idea with the jelly beans! I gave up chips and cheesies for Lent and am pretty amazed I made all 40 days. Congratulations to you, especially for giving up chocolate. Great job. Hope you all had a wonderful Easter and enjoy your holiday!
