Basket of Eggs

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog today.

Today was such a beautiful day here in Pittsburgh. Even though we are still under the "stay at home" order when it's sunny and warm it always makes things seem better. I walked my neighborhood for about an hour. We are allowed out to exercise.

Then for dinner I made some potato-leek soup. Found the recipe on the Food Network site and it was so delicious. Here is a link to the recipe, if you are interested. I served it with a garnish of Applewood smoked bacon and homemade croutons. My hubby really enjoyed it.

Now onto my card for today. This one I created for the color challenge #782 on Splitcoaststampers. Jeanne was the hostess and she chose calypso coral, daffodil delight and seaside spray for her color trio. Optional was to use washi tape.

I started my card by creating the background with some wide watercolor strokes washi tape from Altenew. It had the challenge colors. I also added some daffodil delight ribbon on the left side of the card.
My image is the new Basket of Eggs die from CottageCutz to create my card. Cut the eggs in the challenge colors and the basket in a neutral shade. The Easter phrase is cut in calypso coral.
To finish off my card I stamped some splatters in calypso coral ink and scattered a few calypso coral enamel dots. Another Easter card finished. I am going to send more cards out this year since we probably won't be celebrating Easter with family or even be in church. I think a card will be a welcome gift to my family and friends.

Well that's it for me for this post. So until next time...….God bless.
