Good morning everyone! We had such an enjoyable weekend. We went to see the Monsters vs. Aliens movie and we saw the 3D version on an Imax screen. 3D and Imax - need I say more? It was great! I had my fill of buttered popcorn, and then when we left the theater we spied a Maggie Moos and went to get ice cream! Maggie Moos has different flavors of ice cream and you pick what you want and then pick what you want mixed in it. They put the ice cream on a frozen marble slab and mix all of your stuff in it. I got a cinnamon ice cream with toffee pieces in it. Yum! but I was so full after that that I didn't eat anything the rest of the day!
Yesterday morning I saw two of my iris plants had bloomed; one a deep dark purple and the other a larger lighter purple. The light purple one has a shimmer to the petals that is just gorgeous! I also saw my first clematis bloom. Then the weather turned really windy and I was afraid my newly bloomed iris were going to break in the wind! It's much colder today too; but I like that!
I'm still making some Easter cards. One of the things I loved to find in my Easter basket as a child was those little sugar eggs that had a hole in one end for you to look through. Inside you would see a little 3 dimensional Easter scene. The outside of the eggs were always decorated so pretty too!
I made some of those eggs myself one Easter when my kids were little. It was so much fun! The hardest part was finding a plastic egg that opened in half length wise. You just mix sugar and food coloring and a little bit of water and press it into the egg halves and let harden. Then you carefully remove the shells and build your scene in one half and then use icing to seal the two halves together and to decorate. We cut out some of the Easter images that come on the boxes of egg dies for our scenes.
Anyway, it was thinking about those panoramic eggs that made me come up with today's card.
I made a tunnel card! Here's the front

The bow wrapped egg is an image from DRS Designs. I colored it with copic markers and added stickles to the flower centers.
When the bow is untied you see this
here's a close up of the scene
I used the little Happy to Bee Me image from Squigglefly, a little chick from an unknown source, the little bunny from Squigglefly, and the sheep from Squigglefly.
It was fun making my little scene! What was your favorite thing to find in your Easter basket when you were a kid?
Well, have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!
