Waltzingmouse March Release Previews ~ Day 1

Welcome to the first day of the Waltzingmouse March Blog Hop!  I'm so excited to share these new sets with you!  Today we're featuring a charming set called A Good Egg.  And Claire has designed the images so that they can be used for Easter and year round.  I made my first card an Easter one by using the Rocking and Rolling technique with two inks for the sunburst styled egg and framed it using Claire's Opera Tag images and die.  Of course I had to include a chocolate bunny.  

I went a little silly for my second card.  I was making bacon and eggs for my husband and remembered one of the sentiments for this set:  "Keep your sunnyside up", and thought why not make and egg?  I just free-handed the egg white and punched out a yellow piece of cardstock and embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I know pretty corny...but I just couldn't resist.

That's it for me today.  Your last stop is Claire's blog.  
Here's the hop list in case you might have missed a stop along the way.

 Thank you so much for dropping by.  I hope you've been enjoying hopping along.  Be sure to stop by tomorrow for some more peeks and inspiration!
