Egg-cited about Easter for Heart 2 Heart Challenge, Cuttlebug Mania and Fantabulous Cricut

Happy Easter!  Heart 2 Heart is a challenge blog featuring (mostly) Close to My Heart products and I have lots of these!  For my Easter cards this year I wanted to use the CTMH Artiste cartridge to cut out words from Spring Iris cardstock--although it is retired it is a great purple for Easter and I have lots of it in my stash.  (The cricut cuts are from page 73 Shift Spring at 1.5" and from page 66 Accent 2 N at 1"). I glued them (little dabs of Tombow adhesive) onto a white daisy panel that was dry embossed with a Darice folder called Floral Border. (I hope CTMH offers dry embossing soon!)  I then used Close to My Heart chalks--also retired--to color the flowers and the stems. The flower centers have a little drop of Stardust Glitz Glitter Gel.. (I'm not sure why the stems look so grey--they are actually a pale garden green.)  I mounted them onto Spring Iris, Buttercup or Taffy and mailed them to family members.  I'm also entering this card into the Cuttlebug Mania challenge to make an Easter item and Fantabulous Cricut #154--Easter Greetings.



If you have a lot of Close to My Heart products and love to enter challenges that feature these products I encourage you to try Color My Heart Color Dare.  This week's challenge is to use Hollyhock, Blush, Sunset and Outdoor Denim (Claire colors) in a papercrafted project.  We would love to have you play along with us!  There is also a prize to be awarded to the winner--Hollyhock Zipper Lace and Blue and Green Expoxy bubbles.


Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativity!
