WOYWW #459 - Easter Cards

Last week I finished the mammoth task of cutting 1080 eggs for the church Children's Easter Day next Sunday. A super Easter Wreath.

I have got a sore neck from all the die cutting, but it's not too bad.

From the minimal waste papers I have managed to cut some small eggs and will be making Easter Cards with those.

I also received a new Quickutz alphabet courtesy of Julia's sale of Mary's craft supplies. It is the  Zelda one which I have always liked. It's a bit funky which certainly rings the changes. All I have managed to cut so far are my initials. I popped them on an ATC with my new Heart diecuts - nice Thanks JULIA super wrapping too.

And who spotted the WOYWW addition on my keyboard too?

Finally I made my March SWAP I used all items already cut as I just need a break from die-cutting just now.

Happy WOYWW Everyone.

I first read that you had finished the mammoth task of "Eating" 1080 eggs. Eyes popped and I realised my mistake. Doh!
Love the wreath, and love the alphabet - now why did I not see it?

Hi BJ, that is one great alphabet! Glad you are finished with the die cutting. The ATC is fabulous; such a good idea to use up your left over bits and pieces. Sarah #12

Like the card for the swap, lots of purple Passion. I believe the best way to ease the ache is to stretch it gently the same way..or diecut another 1000 eggs using the other hand!! Glad you’re enjoying ownership of the alpha!

Lunch Lady Jan said...

I like that alphabet too - how lovely that you bought some of Mary's stash. I met her many times at Julai's card workshop days and she was a really lovely woman. Your BJ initials are fab. And well done for rescuing some of those scraps to make mini eggs!

Take care. God bless.

busy desk again this week. Love the wreath and the ATC. I spent some time with the little Sidekick die cutting stuff. That little thing is really easy and fun! Just bought another Vagabond from a crafting friend that wanted to get rid of it for $15...a steal and I tried to pay her more but she wouldn't take it! Have a great week. Vickie #6
