A hatched idea for a Eggstra Special surprise.

easter-eggThanks so much for stopping by for another Kitchen Sink Monday!

I had one more Eater card that I had wanted to make. I wanted to make a card that had a little extra surprise to it for a very dear friend ….. so when I saw Jan Tink’s card HERE, I thought her idea of a brad acting as a hinge would look pretty cool as an egg with a “special surprise” inside. Thanks Jan for the inspiration for my Hoppy Easter card…. and for everyone who celebrate Easter yesterday, I hope your day was Eggstra wonderful! 😀
