Got sidetracked again!

Seems to happen more and more often these days, lol. So, finally, I can show you the beautiful card my dear friend Alexandra sent me for my birthday. I so admire her style, the combination of vintage and modern, the gorgeous colour scheme, it is perfection in my eyes -

Ganz herzlichen Dank, meine liebe Alexandra, die Karte kommt mit nach Frankreich und rein in meinen Craftavan!

I also managed to find time to make my Tag Tuesday tag, on the right day! The theme was EGGS. I used 3 different greens and a yellow distress ink to colour the background in kind of Springy greens and then embossed it with little flowers. Highlighted some of the little flowers with Treasure Gold, it doesn't show up very well in the photos though. Used a scrap of 18th Century book page, printed out some antique egg images and added a sliver of corrugated cardboard. That was pretty much it -

Happy belated Birthday, Lizzie! The gifts you received from Suzy and Dorthe are fabulous and Alex' card is beautiful as well. What a fun skype call you must have had with Suzy, unwrapping all the gifts while she was watching you.
You egg tag is just lovely! I'm happy for you that the Tag Tuesday blog is back online.
Happy Easter, my friend!
