An egg-cellent day

Having a pretty good day today. Slightly marred by having to redo passport forms because of using the wrong kind of pen. I did use black pen but
It has to be ball point.
Nothing else will do.
Ah the stuff you go through to get a student loan (yes not even a foreign trip. And as he doesn't have a loan yet I suppose we will be paying for the passport)

But apart from that a good day. Some good stuff coming from Churches Together. Being Churches Together isn't always as easy as it sounds. We all hold together our faith in Christ but sometimes the way we express it means we end up at odds with each other. But there was a wonderful lunch and time of sharing with one group and some signs of hope when things were not good in the other. (I'm in two groups because I minister to two churches. Yes - double the fun!) And I am not doing so badly with my Holy Week Service planning which just gives me some room to breathe. Go me. It also starts to get me excited for the whole Holy Week celebration.

And today I have a card to share as I chose the theme for Daring Cardmakers this week.

How Egg-citing!

Easter is on its way. Which, amongst other things means Easter Eggs. So be inspired by egg shapes or chocolate or both!

I don't often make Easter cards and when I do, they are religious ones so I decided to go with a punny birthday card instead.I'm back to the "classic" square white card aka my go-to for Daring Cards.
From the base up
American Crafts red and black cardstock
American Crafts Dear Lizzy papers (heart and stripe)
Kaisercrafts red pattern paper
Nestabilities rectangle and scallop frame
Cuttlebug candy cane embossing folder
Dot paper pack from Wild Rose Studio
QK egg and photo corner die
Glue pen and glamour dust
Black sharpie
Foam pads.

Writing that down makes it sound really complicated but it isn't at all really.

Tomorrow I am going on a church family walk and then spending time at the best craft shop there is (Imagine That of course) for some fun crafty time. Should be another great day. And then Palm Sunday when we will wave palms and think about the events of the week to come to prepare us for Good Friday and Easter Sunday. Easter here we come!
