Easter Egg

The temperatures here are supposed to slowly creep up this weekend....which I am grateful for. 
This has been an exceedingly long winter. I am looking forward to warmer temps, longer days, and not needing 800 layers of clothes on!
Spring is around the corner. (I hope!)
Which means,  so is Easter.
And Easter means, eggs.  (Sounds like a version of, "Give a Mouse a Cookie!") 
So here is an egg I created using my Silhouette.  I added white liquid applique to all of the flowers.
Once dry I added heat to puff it up, and while it was still warm, I sprinkled glitter. It has great touchable texture, which unfortunately, my camera really wasn't able to capture.
I added glittery flowers I cut using dies from Papertrey Ink.  The leaves were a Silhouette cut.  I used a bit of ribbon, a sentiment from JustRite called, Welcome Spring, and a scattering of sequin flowers to finish it off. 
I finally switched up my living room mantel!  I couldn't stand looking at my snowmen for one more day! It was time to put up my spring decor.  Which is rather ironic considering there are 5 foot snow piles still outside! ;) I have various glass jars and canisters filled with green moss.  I bought the mantel scarf from Pier 1.  It can be difficult finding decor that matches a living room such as mine.  (Red and gold are not always the easiest colors! LOL!)
I have a tray on my coffee table filled with moss and eggs.  I added a couple of rabbits to the mix.  It isn't Easter without a few rabbits!
I appreciate your visit! I know how busy everyone is, and it means a lot that you spend a few minutes here!
Have a wonderful weekend!
