Cardz TV Spring Blog Hop

Welcome to Cardz TV Spring Blog Hop! If you got here from the fantastic Melissa's blog, than you are in the right spot. Wasn't her creation just awesome?! But if you just happened to stop by for a visit, well Thank You, but start at Mary's and hop along with us. Mary will be giving 2 sets of her fabulously awesome stamp sets to one lucky winner. Check out Mary's stamps here. I'll wait on you while you head over there and look.............awesome aren't they?! Our hop runs from 12:01 am EST, Saturday, March 24th until midnight EST, Sunday, March 25th. Now, onto my card:
I used the Simply Charmed cartridge. I cut the little ducky in the egg. Now, the cartridge only has the duck and the bottom half of the egg, and I wanted a top part, too. So using my Gypsy Girl, I added another piece of the egg and flipped it so I could see what size to cut it. I wanted it just a little bigger than the bottom so it would hide the duck. I cut an extra of the back piece of the bottom half of the egg so I could pop up the front. I added a brad to the side. All of the papers that I used for the egg and the bg papers are from my scrapbin. I used some Lilac Twine from The Twinery and wrapped it around the middle of my bg pieces. I also put some in the big button and tied it in a bow. The sentiments are from one of Mary's newest stamp sets, Farmyard Funnies. Such a cute cute set!! I did a little bit of doodling, used giggle eyes, coated the duck beak in glossy accents and use just a small amount of stickles on her little bit of feathers on the top of her head. She had to have a little bit of sparkle to her!! And added the buttons. Hope ya'll like my card!!!! :)
Now head over to the fabulous Jeri's blog and check out her awesome creation. And if you get lost along the way, just hop back by and check the list below so you can find your way.
Leave me a message and I'll draw a winner for the blog candy that I will be giving away. (Photo below) You don't have to be a follower, but I will welcome you if you want to follow me. Also, due to postage, please have a U.S. or Candian address. I'm truly sorry about that.
Now photo's my card:
