Easter Egg cards (from the past...)

Happy Monday!  Well, it is not a particularly happy Monday for me due to "technical difficulties."  I am visiting my Dad for a couple of days and my laptop power supply cord has stopped working!  This means that I can't post my items for Scrappy-Go-Lucky today since I was working on a review full of screen shots and I can't duplicate these on my Dad's Mac computer.

It is too late for me to change course and post a different project (I post at night for the next day's morning email) so I will once again give you a few links to refer to until I get the situation sorted out (or get back home to my desktop PC!).

The cards at the top of this post are some that I designed a couple of years ago.  A lot you have started reading my blog more recently so you may not have seen them - they are quick and easy to make if you still are looking for Easter card ideas.

The post about this card is HERE.

The links are the old 4shared links since I can't re-upload right now to the new service I use for instant downloads.  I don't think you will have any problems with these - you just have to wait a bit for the download.

The swirly egg card uses just the Wild Card cartridge and the pink card uses the Beyond Birthdays and Storybook cartridges.  These both take advantage of "hide selected contour" and you could try something similar with some of the newer cartridges.

I will take this power failure as a sign that I should slow down and enjoy visiting my Dad - but I might be able to post a little project for you tomorrow if I can remember how to upload photos to his computer (and if I have the right cables with me)!

Don't forget to check out the Discussion Day link and add your thoughts if you would like to join in.  I hope you have a great day!

  1. I think you are right - maybe the power failure is a sign to enjoy your visit with your Dad! :-) Thanks for sharing your cards - they are beautiful!

  2. Hi Diane ... My hubby is a computer nerd (thankfully -- he keeps me powered up!), and perhaps I can be of help while you're here in Bucks County. He may have a power cord to loan/give you, and/or he can check out your laptop to see if it's on course. And OF COURSE I'd like to take the opportunity to meet you, play, or shop! So please send me a private message with a contact phone number if you have a couple of hours during your visit to PA!!

  3. I love these cards so cute and all of the blings just adds that special touch to make them shine. TFS


  4. They are still very pretty. I get in such a bad mood when I have all those tec problems. I hope all is well now.

  5. By now I am sure you are chilling with your Dad, enjoying his company. I lost my Dad last year and envy those whose fathers are still around. However, being a type A personality, I do commiserate with you on not being able to do what you want, when you want to do it! Anyway, thanks for the review of your projects from the past. They look as good now as they did when you first posted them. Thanks for sharing.

  8. I love those cards!!! I have cut out the one from Wild Card a couple of times, but didn't "see" it as an Easter egg! Duh!! You make me think beyond what I see!!

  9. Those are nice cards. I had my computer cord die recently and was just so thankful it was the cord and NOT the laptop itself!
    What a sweet offer you got from one of your readers. The kindness of others in our paper community just made my day and it wasn't even directed at me. :)
