Eggstra Special

Easter is only a couple of weeks away so the challenge this week at Phindy's Friday challenges is to make an Easter card or a Spring card if you don't celebrate Easter.  This card is for one of my grandchildren who are both Eggstra special to me.

While you don't have to use a Phindy image to enter, you should really check out the images in her store because they are fabulous and I am sure you would love to create with them. The new Wee Babbies collection is growing each week and they are absolutely the cutest. If you do use a Phindy image, you will get two entries in the challenge and Phindy is very generous with a prize for a random winner and a prize for a top pick card, chosen by the Design Team.  At the end of each month the Design Team chooses a Guest Designer from the weekly top pick cards for that month and that person gets to select an image to work with for the Guest Designer spot.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

AI Factory - Easter
Craft Us Crazy - Easter/Spring
Meljens Designs - Easter
Outlawz POM  - Spring Cleaning (Use your stash)
Creative Craft World - Easter
Fresh Brewed Designs - Flowers
