Eggstra Special!

Hello friends!  As soon as I saw this beautiful new set from Deedee's Digi's I knew I had to make a glittery, shimmery egg shaped card with it.  This is the Dollar Set at Deedee's digis this week.  You can get it for free by participating in this week's Happy Monday Challenge and using one of Deedee's digis on your entry.  The sentiment "Happy Easter!" is included in the set. 
This view shows how shimmery and glittery my card is in real life.

Magical Monday

This is a picture of one of the two big Oak trees in my back yard.  This is the one that I can see from the window of my craft room.  This tree is one of my blessings.  The tree itself is gorgeous and I love the wild life that it shelters.  Everything from birds to raccoons.  When I opened the back door to take this picture I spotted a squirrel and 5 species of birds in my Oak tree at a glance.  I would have seen more if I had taken time to study it more carefully. 
  • The boy's ranch where we work and live just celebrated it's 46th anniversary!  To God be the glory!!!
  • A surprise long distance call from my 8 yr. old niece.  That's something I'll treasure. :)
  • Fabulous happy mail!
  • A lovely answer to prayer for some special friends.
Have a terrific day!!!

Inky hugs!

Beautiful card - love the colors you chose and all of the sparkle - yummy! It's funny to see how green and gorgeous your tree is and then to look at ours so plain and leafless. I'm beginning to think we may never see leaves - they are predicting more snow next week - yuck!
