Painting Eggs

You can click on the photo to enlarge it
 Spring is my favorite time of year but here in Florida it feels more like the middle of summer felt in my old stomping grounds.  MInd you I'm not complaining.  It's quite enjoyable.  But it is Spring so I'm in the mood to make Spring cards which is why I chose to use the penguins decorating an egg stamp.  The sketch is  the Cat's Pajama's challenge for this week.  Banners have become a big thing in the paper crafting community and when I see them I marvel at how good they look, but they don't come easily to me, well, that's why it's a challenge!

don't forget the inside
Here's the deets:
stamp - the Cat's Pajamas "Spring Fling"
ink - Brilliance "Graphite Black"; Stampin' Up "Soft Sky"
paper - Georgia Pacific white cs for stamps; October Afternoon "Ducks in a Row" dp; MFT "Sno-Cone" cs for base; Stampin' Up yellow (from an "in color" pack) cs for mats
miscellaneous - copics; brads; ribbon; button; charm; pink burlap twine; sewing machine; Nesties "Curved Rectangles"; corner punch

Here's the challenges:
The Cat's Pajamas TCPTUES150 - sketch
JUGS #76 - Baja Breeze, So Saffron, Soft Sky and Pink Pirouette
Raise the Bar #58 - Pixie inspiration (I was inspired by the colors)
DYSO #11 - Add a Bow
If the Shoe Fits FF#71- Aquamarine
Wee Memories - Cute and Cuddly

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you'll come back again.
