A Dilly Beans Easter



I am a huge fan of Dilly Beans images - they are so playful and fun. This week's Dilly Beans challenge is Easter so I made my last two Easter cards with Dilly Beans images.

For the first one, I used this card by this week's Queen for the Day (Sharon aka SMadson, QFTD158) as my inspiration. I used her basic layout, used a lot of purple, and used a floral background. I cropped the Dilly Beans' image Amalia and Laylah #403 down to just Amalia's head and framed her for the first card. I overdid the liquid pearls a bit, but I like the outcome. On the next card, I openned up an arrow shape in Word and dropped in a bunny image that Megan gave away free on the store blog a couple of years ago. Inside it says: "lOvEs yOu! ME, ME, ME, ME, ME!!!!! The challenge runs until Thursday night.

Today represents a very magical moment in the Universe - one I sink to my knees in grattitude for because I need this gift desperately! After I finish cooking my turkeys and making a giant pan of macaroni and cheese, we are off to my Sister Sharon's to watch all the little ones hunt for eggs and catch up on family news. Hope you all have a wonderful Easter!

Hugz!
