Spring Has Sprung

Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for March 2017. We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our 2017 Blog Hop monthly themes. This month we are featuring Spring or Spring related projects. We hope you enjoy our creations.

You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below. The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.

When I think of Spring, the first two things that come to mind are Easter and Spring flowers. For today’s Spring Has Sprung projects, I chose Easter. I have this beautiful collection of Amana Easter Eggs, I continue to add to from year-to-year.

At the start of Lent, I bring the basket up from the cool darkness of our basement and enjoy this Easter Egg collection though the season of Lent and the Easter holiday.  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these special Easter eggs for their vibrant, marbled colors. It’s this vibrant color I chose to bring out in today’s card project. Haven’t heard of these special eggs, you can find many pictures on Pinterest or through a Google search for Amana Easter Eggs. Here is a picture of a small portion of my collection. I added two and a half dozen new eggs to my collection this year.

For my Easter card, I wanted a white basket to match the white basket featured in my photo. This was the first basket I filled with these precious Easter eggs. I also wanted to use our new Watercolor Pencils to create the vibrant color for this card and the eggs. Take a look and see what you think.

The full list of supplies used to create this card is located at the bottom of my post below the Blog Hop Line-Up and includes among other items the Basket Bunch Bundle, Cupcakes & Carousels DSP Stack, and Watercolor Pencils. The inside of the card is stamped with the “Happy Easter” sentiment from the Easter Message stamp set.

Of course, this post would not be complete without sweetening the deal by adding a few chocolate Easter eggs. This time of year you can find one of my favorite Easter treats, Dove’s Milk Chocolate Coconut Creme Eggs. Hope you enjoy these calorie-free chocolate treats.

Aren’t they just adorable and yummy at the same time? I also water-colored the Chocolate Bunnies in Early Espresso. What is your favorite Easter candy? My husband LOVES Jelly Beans this time of year and eats them by the bagful. Leave me a comment below and let me know your favorite sweet treat this time of year.

    Love your card. The colors are fantastic. My favorite candy this time of year are the marshmallow peep treats. I only like the yellow ones. LOL, There’s no difference in taste I know, but I don’t like the pink bunnies, just the yellow chicks. Your treat package is too cute. The bunny watercolored in Early Expresso is just the right touch. Thanks for sharing.

    I have been to the Amana Colonies a gazillion times and I really have never noticed the eggs! Of course I had to read about them and it makes sense. I live in Pella now and need to make a run to Iowa CIty in a couple of weeks, maybe we can stop there. I like your Dove egg packaging and bunny card is so bright and cheery.

    • Thanks for your comments, Chris! I LOVE Pella; the tulips in Spring are my favorite and the bakeries! There’s a great quilt shop there, too. And the Cheeseburger Chowder at Smokey Row. Use to be able to get the Easter Eggs at the shop off exit 225 of I-80, but have to get them in main Amana at General Store. It’s across for Ox Yoke Inn, which is a great place to stop at eat. Enjoy! It’s fun picking them out!
