Lollipop Crafts #75 - ATG Easter

Hello everyone!!

Hoping you all had a wonderful weekend and got to spend some quality time celebrating Easter with your loved ones.  Today, Lollipop Crafts is celebrating Easter Monday for our friends in Canada, England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Australia, and European counties.  Our team captain Tammy lives in Canada so we salute her and those of our friends across the globe celebrating today.  With that in mind, our challenge this week is Anything Goes with an Easter theme.  Please stop by the Lollipop Crafts blog to see what the rest of the LC ladies have to share.

This is the Easter/Spring card that I sent to my March swap sister, Dena, who just happens to be one of my LC sisters (lol).  It features the adorable Easter Anya (retired) from The Greeting Farm

Ta-da!!   Isn't her expression the cutest?  I've always loved her, she's so sassy and yet cute at the same time.  She makes me smile each time I see her.  The card is a gate fold and I used a sheet of MME Happier dp for the panels.  I went with greens and pinks and touches of yellow for this one.  Used the beaded oval Spellbinder and distressed the inside with DI in crushed olives (one of my favorites).  I love how the ovals look like eggs!  (Simple pleasures my friends)  I stamped Anya on a separate sheet of cs and colored her with Copics, fussy cut her out and mounted her in the center of the card.  I added the paper flower to her hair with a sun and a little bit of bling because she just wasn't girly enough.  (I'm kidding!!  lol)  The pink and white polka dot ribbon holds it all together. 

The sentiment is handwritten and mounted on to a scrap of dp from the same paper pad.  I haven't used flowers in a while so I thought the pink and green combo would be a nice touch.  It's also holding the sentiment closed.  I would not hire me as a florist.  (hahaha!)

Okay, now it's your turn!  Let's see those Easter themed projects or cards fill up the LC blog this week.  There is no sponsor, but we are going to choose a top 3.  Mahalo for stopping by, have a great week!!


Sorry I forgot to take a picture of the Copics I used.  If I remember I'll be sure to update.
