Easter Egg cards!

I bought a set of Basic Grey Easter stamps at my LSS a while ago and I finally got to use them for the first time. Since stamping each egg is labor-intensive, I decided to make two cards out of it. 
The egg stamps are really tiny (size of a finger nail), so I think it's best used as background stamps
I took out my TH distress Ink to stamp the eggs in all different colors.
So FUN!
I'm sharing a photo of "goodies" that I got in the mail this past week. Yummy chocolate from Donna and her most adorable doll card! Jane's (Tainan Jane) handmade key chain and her most elaborate card with intricate details. I bought ourselves the two Easter Bunnnies just because both of my children are away at the moment (Stephanie likes dark chocolate and David likes milk chocolate).
I'm anxiously waiting for David's return from Italy on Tuesday. His teacher sent me an e-mail from Rome this morning :" David's having a blast! He has lots of photos and even more crazy stories! " I really want to know the crazy stories that he has to tell me.... NOW! Can't wait!

Those are so so so uber cute and do i see some distressed stickles? and yes, labor intensive, makes one want to hire some free immigrant labors to do that!! oh wait, mine are coming HOME, LOL!!! LOOOOOOOOOOOL
so typically, the crazy stories involving rome is how the Italians drive, though I've never been there, and I personally cannot imagine them driving any worse than the ones I've seen in China, LOL.
xxoo have a great Sunday.

Your cards are so cute, Virginia! Those eggs look so small, this must have been quite a job to stamp them all in different colors! But they're so much fun!

Your cards are ADORABLE, Virginia! What a ton of love went into creating them, especially all of the mini eggs colored differently. CUTE DESIGN. I'm enjoying seeing what you received in the mail.......DARLING CARDS from Jane and Donna, too. Sounds like you're keeping BUSY, even without David home. But wait, there's MORE..........MORE DIRTY LAUNDRY to be done when he arrives....something to REALLY LOOK FORWARD TO!
Love,Karen xo
