We're under a tornado watch with a promise of worse weather this afternoon, so I am going to hurry up with this post in case I need to leave my house for a shelter, which is very likely.

I made the card for these challenges: QFTD56 on SplitcoastStampers. The Queen is CarrollAnn aka MrsBoz. I chose this card of hers to case. I made some changes, of course, but used her layout and a punch
around the page.

I colored my image with Copics, cut out leaves, curled them a bit, and popped them. I sponged around the flower while still in the Spellbinders Labels14 die cut. Added ribbon and a pearl. The punch around the page is a Martha Stewart called Flower Patch.

Stampin' B's - Easter Basket/Wreath

Good week and bad week. I bought a new chest for my craft room and hubby helped me rearrange some storage pieces and I'm so much happier with it now. I have my craft table all cleaned off and can actually work on it now. That's a real plus!!

For the bad part of my week, I was in the utility room last night, opened a cabinet door and knocked over a new bottle of Pine Sol which fell to the floor, cracked the lid into and spilled about half the bottle on my floor and into the grout. This was at bedtime so hubby and I had to stay up late cleaning and cleaning. It smells clean this morning but I don't think that will be good for the grout.

 This week at the Stampin' B's Design Team , Lois asked us to use a square, a circle, and an oval on our card. I decided to make a wreath for my circle, my card and the brick wall  are square, and the eggs are oval. I found the  basket and egg punch at T.J. Maxx for $3.99....pretty good deal. I used the brick wall embossing folder and I used 2 circle scallop die cuts cut together to get my circle . The greenery is a Sizzix branch w/leaves die cut.
Hope you'll join us. Just use the inlinkz tool to list your card or project.
