With the laundry finished and the bread pudding baked,

a GS design, download and use the special watermark and hide it for the
GS design team to find.
Today I decided to make some cards just for fun rather than for one of the design teams for whom I usually make my cards.
In your house, who is generally assigned the task of hiding the Easter eggs for the kiddos to find? Our Easter bunny has changed over the years. First my DH did the hiding for our kids. Then when our first granddaughter arrived my son, who was still living at home, did the honors. After he married and had a home of his own, I've hidden the Easter eggs. Now the grandsons are grown and they hide the eggs for the next generation, my great granddaughters. They also help them find them, which is wonderful. Half the time I can't find the glasses on my face.
(That reminds me, I have wash in the dryer to fold. It'll wait.)
You may be wondering why I am sharing our family Easter bunny history. Gerda Steiner is having an online Easter Egg Hunt. Participants make something using a GS design, download and use the special watermark and hide it for the GS design team to find.
I thought it would be fun.
Here's the card I made:

And Just for Fun, I wrote this blog post on the lanai while enjoying a beautiful Florida day.
Fun Folds always intrigue me,
like this Hexagon Triple Pocket Twist Card.
Luckily there was an excellent tutorial that accompanied this
fun fold card, which I originally spied on Pinterest.
This paper is from a pack called Wild Flower. I love all the shades of purple. It reminds me of all the flowers in my yard that first open in spring, crocuses, lilacs, tulips, hyacinths, azaleas and the rose bud tree that was originally a shoot off a dear friend's tree.
Here are two more views of the card, partially opened.
I used stamps from various companies: Simon Says Stamp, CTMH, Art Impressions, and My Favorite Things. The front ovals were made with a SU punch. The ribbon, a purchase from Violet's in Lakeland, FL, just slides off like a belly band. I was trying to keep the weight down for mailing. BTW, this fits in a regular A2 envelope.
