It's a Six Chick EASTER!!!

We're Celebrating Easter from now until EASTER
With each and every order (regardless of amount) through Easter Sunday, Limelight will be sending out a plastic Easter egg filled with goodies!

They could be filled with ribbon, stickers, Cat’s Eye ink pads, small stamps, buttons, Dew Drops, Shimmerz, and more!
A few will have some “big prizes” written on slips of paper!
There will be no rhyme or reason to which egg goes in an order. We’ll keep it as random as humanly possible!
Doesn't that sound like fun!!
Does Mandy know how to throw a party or what!!!
When Mandy challenged us all to do Easter Baskets...I knew what it had to be... I wanted to make a "girlfriends Easter Basket"
I filled it with a bottle of Sweet Red Wine
Starbuck's Chocolate Covered Espresso Beans
and Dark Chocolate Covered Cranberries

I popped it all in one of those $1 tin pails from the dollar store

Supplies Used: Paper Basic Grey Urban Prairie this is probably my favorite paper line by them right's so springy and goes so well with all the trendy bird stamps that are out right now and 6x6 pad works great for cards and smaller projects; Unity Stamps: Easter Blessing Side Set and What a Pal Bunny


I have to confess, I'm glad this challenge is over because now tonight I can Veg out on the couch with a glass of wine, some chocolate and my new Somerset Memories Magazine...shhhhhhh....

If you're looking for a place to hang out and chat with fellow stampers today come and play at The Unity Forum on SCS for Hip Hop Hangover Day!!

I want to take two minutes to tell you if you have access to HBO on Demand, I hope you will take the time to watch "Taking Chance" with Kevin Bacon. It is an extremely well done movie about how America pays respects to our fallen heroes. No matter what your politics are, it's a very accurate look at what happens each and every time we lose someone who has served.

Thanks for indulging me.

Now Go Shopping!!


Lot's of new stuff !!

Cute Easter stuff! I haven't even thought of easter yet. Too many birthdays and wedding showers in March to worry about now.

I did start on my card for yesterdays challenge. Hope to finish it tonight.

Your bunnies are just too stinkin' cute!

PS I loved your review of Taking Chance, I saw that the other weekend and cried the whole way through - its a beautiful story and an honor to the men and women who have served our country. I watched it again the other night and cried through it more, its an amazingly moving movie. God bless America! Land of the Free, because of the brave!
