Egg~trodinary Spring Bouquet

“That is one good thing about

this world…there are always sure

to be more springs.”

~L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Avonlea

I love Spring!  New life, new beginnings, and especially for those who experience long, cold winters, a welcome sign that warm weather is on its way.  I’m seeing signs here in my yard; Robins, daffodils popping up, and even some flowering trees in bloom.  Yep, there are always sure to be more springs!

Today’s project is somewhat whimsical with Violets (Pansies) in an egg, but, for me, it’s also memorable.  One Easter, my Dad gave my mother a “sugared egg” with a lovely bouquet inside and I couldn’t resist replicating this starting with Joset Designs Easter Egg done in Silk Microfine Glitter (not sugar:-D) and my Garden Notes Pansy.  I encompassed the egg with my Round Grapevine Wreath, Leafy Branches, White Lilacs, and some colorful branches, covered with Plum Crazy Prills.  The bouquet is set on Graphic 45’s “Children’s Hour” collection and ECD’s Soft Finish Duo Cardstock in Dusky Lavender and could easily stay as a card or the recipient could frame it in a shadow box for a true keepsake.

Sneak Preview…

On Thursday, I leave for CHA (Craft & Hobby Association) annual trade show in Anaheim, California.  I have five new Garden Notes (including this Daffodil #1139), seven new CountryScapes, including a new category I’ve called Garden Edges and three new stamps from Seeds of Thought.  If you follow Susan’s Garden Club on FaceBook, you’ve seen some of the new dies.

I thought since it’s so chilly here (we’ve gone from 75-degrees at Christmas to 37-degrees today!), I’d give you something to look forward to–Spring.  When I get back, I promise you new projects with these flowers, as well as, combining them with some of my others to create beautiful bouquets.  Stay Warm, y’all!
