Now where'd I hide that darn egg???


Bwah-ha-ha-ha!! OMG, that's SO ME!! I have to count them before I hide them or I'll forget one for sure! I LOVE hidin' eggs too! None of that easy "out in the open" stuff if Aunt Jeanie's hiding eggs. Ok I admit, I do give my little niece a "hotter or colder" hint, but that's it. Free Smiley Courtesy of www.millan.net Yeah, I'm a pushover for that cute face....

Today is the beginning of another Catch the Bug challenge. This week's challenge is 4+ layers! Can't get no easier than that for this hen! Ya'll know I LOVEEE layers. So whatcha think of Gus in his Easter Bunny suit? ROFL!! OMG, what a hoot! This is Gus - Hiding Eggs from Bugaboo Stamps. I printed Gus out onto some Neenah Classic Crest CS and colored him with my Primsacolor pencils and Copics. You can play along in this week's challenge too. Just head over to the Catch the Bug blog and get all the details....

I'm also following the recipe in this week's Catered Crop FTR #9 challenge.


Here's the recipe:
  • Pattern Paper – stripes, plaids and polka dots
  • Colors – kraft, red, green, blue, and yellow
  • Stamps – alphabets and stars
  • Color Mediums – stamping ink
  • Embellishments – bling, buttons, ribbon
  • Tools – sewing machine, distressing tools
  • Techniques – sewing, distressing, try threading your buttons with ribbons, ruffled paper/ribbon
  • Theme – Boys! and Alligators?!
  • Shapes – stars, circles, scallops, and swirls
It's super easy to play along in this challenge too. Just use any of the ingredients listed above. I've highlighted those that I've used in my Gus card. For all the challenge details, just click on the Catered Crop FTR button above.

Ok hens, that's it for me today. I'm headed out in the boat today with the DH! Now where'd I put that darn sunscreen...... {{{hen hugs}}}

  4. Ha! Counting them doesn't always mean you'll still find them all! LOL We hid REAL eggs in my uncle's basement years ago... he found the one we couldn't find MONTHS later!
