Thinking of You!

Happy Tuesday Crafty Friends!!
I Pray you had a Wonderfully Blessed Memorial Day Weekend!
We had a Great Weekend! Yesterday we got to ride on my hubby's Grandparents' 1934 Firetruck in the Twinsburg, Ohio Parade! His Grandpa is the retired Firechief, so it was pretty cool and they own the firetruck! My kiddos loved it! 

With the Hot Weather Here in OHIO (90+ Degrees in May, I thought I'd do a Summery Type Card this week for my STAMP N PLUS POST!)
Here is my card featuring the stamp J351 Flower & Fairy  & Using Paper Alice Hand Made Paper.

Thinking Outside the Yoke- Her Craft Kre8tions 1st DT Post

 Welcome to Her Craft Kre8tions first ever Blog Hop which we are calling Thinking Outside the Yoke. Each Design Team Member was given a paper mache egg and were to transform this into something other than what was given to them originally. Our Design Team is to think outside of the "card" and do something other than cards and layouts. What a challenge .... could you meet this challenge?

Here is my whole Creation! It was a bit of an interesting experience as my egg disappeared from my Craft Room a few days ago, so I had to start over. So I ended up taking an Easter Egg, Paper Mached it, added a bunch of flowers that I had received at a crop that someone didn't want, spiced them up with some jewels, and there you have it!! It reminds me of a hyacinth. I totally stayed true to my Crafting Green Philosophy!

Close up of my Egg:
