Last minute Easter creation.


I just hate when days get away from you. Seems all I did yesterday was sit on the computer, blogging. One thing after another kept catching my eye, then it's lunch time, then ...ok ....one more quick glance at my mail, then boom it's supper......what the?!?! On the up side, I did actually sit down after supper (sans computer) to create! Do u ever find that if the computer is at your fingertips, then you are always on it. Step away from it, close it down & pick up the crafting scissors, ladies and gents, you will get alot more accomplished.

I was inspired by numerous challenges for this card.
First of all at All That Scraps Magnolia challenge they want anything Marvelously Magnolia ("May" moments)! Now, easter is April, I get that, however, this will also make a lovely mother's day card from her 3 kids. (me, my sister & my brother- Of course I'm the youngest hiding in the egg- lol) .After checking out that challenge I was intrigued by the Back Panel Side Step Card Pam Sparks created; thus another computer search rampage began! Finally I found Pam's wonderful tutorial page where she created a Front Panel Side Step Card, which I am now fondly in love with. Thanks Pam! After a few miss measurements, wrong scores and misjudged cuts, I ended up with my creation! Not too bad for a first try. I LOVE trying new things.


Then at Magnolia-licious Highlites blog- they want to see Tilda & Edwin! That's not asking too much is it!?! LOL, Poor Edwin, he seems to always be pushed to the side hey?>! So I gave him a little limelight here. This is the only NON-Christmas Edwin I own and he is very versatile!

Also the new sketch at Just Magnolia appears to match my layout:


And the new Frosted Fridays Challenge to incorporate a butterfly or bird on your creation, lends well to my side step card.


Next at Stamptacular Sunday, they are Magnolia-licious & at Magnolia Stamp Lovers & Magnolia Down Under they both want Easter creations!
Then there's Flutterby Wednesdays that has an OPEN challenge.
Phew!




Oh Ya and can't forget at the Magnolia-licious Challenge blog- they have this fabby photo inspiration to trigger your craft buds. This is what pulled my whole card together! Pinks & Greens. How'd I do?!



I just had to show you this last shot of Tilda with Butterfly that I borrowed form Lori. (I too am in love with her now, thanks alot)! Check out the sky behind her. YUP! I did that, with a little.....ok A LOT......of help from Dana. Ever since I saw one of her many MAGNIFICENT creations a couple months back, I have been aching to get my hands on some blue copics to make some clouds. Thanks to a Just Magnolia gift cert win, I was able to order these copics to complete some sky/cloud scenes! Thanks DANA!



Thanks for stopping by today.
I hope you all have a very happy easter!

Oh wow!! I had a hard time getting on to read your post because that photo inspiration is GORGEOUS!! And so is your card!! Love it!! I know it's got to be even more gorgeous in person because for some reason those light BG's don't like to be photographed (the shy lil' boogers!!) So glad you were able to pic up those colors and that you took the time to share it with me!! Love it!!!
Happy Easter g/f!
