My SIL called at 8:30 Tues. am and said she wasn't going to see the aunt because she had to do something with her daughter. We will reschedule for a later date. I'm somewhat relieved but we will still go. Yesterday we trekked down to Nashville again since they finally called her and said her stamps were in. I only got one thing out of a visit to both stamp stores! It is, new to me, a stamp set by Stampendous! and is by Laurel Busch. It is, of all things, cats! It caught my eye the last time we were there and I didn't get it, so this time I caved. She was a great designer and used copics so beautifully.  Had a great lunch and a most beautiful day in the 70's.

Todays card is a Simon Says stencil and sponged with Distress Oxide Inks. I added sequins to the flower centers and the sentiment is Lawn Fawn. I cut a oval with a SB die in pink cardstock and mounted it over the stenciled egg. Be kind to one another.

  5. Glad you had a good outing at a stamp store. Definitely a happier trip than the one you'd planned. Love what you've done with the oxides and stenciling too. The sparkle sequins as centers are a brilliant idea. Very spring like card, and don't you love the oxides' smoothness? TFS & Hugs.

  6. I do so love this card, Brenda! Your stenciling is perfect & you know I love the pink! I have a Laurel Burch doggy pillow on my love seat, so was excited to see the new stamps on the blog. Probably won't get any, but will be anxiously waiting to see how you use your new one! Happy Easter to you & your family!

  8. What a fun and beautiful way to use a stencil to make a pretty Easter egg card! This is fabulous, Brenda! My order of Oxides came in, but I haven't had a chance to try them yet. Do you find them easier to blend than the DIs? That's what I'm hearing and I hope so since I can't blend worth a darn with the DIs! Can't wait to see your NBUS cat creation! Hugs, Darnell
