Secondly, Happy Birthday to my dear brother, Larry. Today is his 60th! Big day. New decade. Larry, you're now officially old. Put that in your pipe and smoke it. (Insert evil grin here.)
OK, now on to the actual post. This week our Greeting Card challenge at the Outlawz is to "Express Your Spirituality". And we are being sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps.
I took this opportunity to make another Easter card, this time for my niece's munchkin, Tristan. He is just the cutest little guy. I thought Bugaboo WOE Big Egg would be a great image for a 2-year old boy.
I printed Big Egg on Cryogen CS, and colored it with my Copics:
Skin: E000, E00, E11, E21, R20
Egg & Hair: E71, E74, E77, E79
Egg Dots & Bunny Suit: G0000, G000, G00
Suit Trim: E41, E42, E43
I printed my Create with TLC sentiment on Cryogen CS as well. I cut it out with a Whimsy Postage Stamp die, and then sponged SU ink around the edges of both the sentiment and the image. My DP came from MME Lost & Found Breeze collection. It was paired with Bazzill Kraft CS. I added cheesecloth to the card layers, and embellished with eggs made from the following dies: Cheery Lynn Lace Egg 5, Lace Egg 7 and Nesting Eggs; Memory Box Filigree Egg. I added corner die cuts made with a La-La Land Crafts Corner die. And I think that's about it.
We had a marvelous birthday dinner for Gary last night at our daughter's home. Angela fixed some papadum with two yummy dips for an appetizer. Then we had a most marvelous lentil soup with yogurt. And the main course was a scrumptious chicken biryani, which her family didn't seem to like much. Probably because they were comparing it to the same dish that they had eaten at The Dhaba, (our favorite local Indian restaurant.) But I thoroughly enjoyed it, and was horrified when she told Jon to throw the leftovers into the garbage disposal.
Needless to say, (so if it's needless, why am I saying it?), I got the leftovers to take home with me.
Oh, and btw, there was a wonderful yogurt dessert with pistachios. Oh, yum. It was a fabulous meal. Our daughter is a very good cook. She learned that from her dad, she did.
It was a really nice evening. And we watched a reality show I had never heard of--it's called "Duck Dynasty". One of the more ridiculous reality shows, for sure. But I'll tell you what: I was laughing so hard I cried. Don't know if I'll ever watch it again, but it was certainly good entertainment for a half hour last night. Duck Dynasty, indeed.
Well, peeps, I'm off to do my comments. Yup, I am waaaay behind again--happens every time I work on a card. Now, y'all be sure to check out the great cards by my teammates! And have a wonderful week!
