A Masculine Easter Card and some Gluttony
This card is for two challenges: IC382 on Splitcoast Stampers and Pattie's Creations Blog - Challenge #64 Easter. On SCS, the inspiration site is called Eglantyne Shop - click here to see my inspiration picture. I used a lovely sewing box as my inspiration for the coloring on the basket and for the fun embees at the bottom. At Pattie's Creations, the theme is Easter; there were no rules about having to use a traditional Easter image so I felt free to use this super fun fishing image that I received in a past PC challenge (it is one of my favorites). It has been so long since I was able to do these two challenges, and I had to wake up this morning at 5:00 to have time. I felt like I was visiting old friends. Yay for three day weekends!
This card is the Easter Card I am giving my sweet husband. I am going to tuck a Bass Pro Shop Gift card inside. He deserves it for all the errands he ran yesterday to help us finish up the wedding invitations for sweet Crystal. If all goes well they should be in the mail on Monday, and then we can start focusing on all the other 42,000 things we have to do before May 11th.
Since I had a bit of time this morning, I also did a card for the Haunted Design House challenge (HDH163) - it has been ages since I participated in that one. This week's challenge is the levels of Hell in Dante's The Divine Comedy. I chose level three: Gluttony. I know this is a bit tame for an HDH card, but you have to admit that this image is the epidome of Gluttony (plus it totally makes me smile)! The image is from Squigglefly and is done by Lynne Stansbery - it is called Dad's Food Moment. Since I have been dieting since January 1st, this inspires me.
Now we are off to the Wedding Dress Fitting in Birmingham today! Fun, Fun, Fun.
