Happy Easter

Today, the entire Avocado Arts Pit Crew has loads of inspiration to share with you! We've all made cards featuring the February Stamp Set: Wishes and Kind Thoughts with sneak peeks of the upcoming March Stamp Set: Springtime Celebrations. Please visit these amazing blogs for inspiration galore:

For my card, I used the base of the wishing well from Wishes & Kind Thoughts as a basket. I coloured the stones in a basket weave and inserted two eggs on a straw bed, three parts which are masked together in one piece, from Springtime Celebrations. The sentiment is also from the upcoming March release. I created a basket handle with burlap string and Copic coloured gemstones.

Thanks so much for stopping by! If you are playing with Avocado Arts, leave me a link to your blog post or gallery and I'll be sure to stop by to check it out. Oh, and in case you didn't already know, Avocado Arts has a publication incentive program! If you are published with more than just a sentiment, you will earn a free stamp set of your choice. :)

Gorgeous Emily! At first, I thought you had placed the eggs inside a globe but when I take a closer look, I laughed out. I need to get my eyes checked! It's beautiful! Love the color combo.

Very CUTE and clever Emily!! GREAT color combination!!!
BTW, I didn't even realize I had the word verification turned on. Thanks for letting me know. It should be off now! (=

Angela said...

I apologize for the "humor" that follows:

As long as your basket is as cute as this, go right ahead and put all your eggs into it.

And I'm done.
