TGF Battle – Week 2 and Easter Silk Tie Eggs

G’day, friends! I hope you all had a great Easter weekend. Mine was totally mellow and I got lots of cleaning done. My household (includes my roommate, guests and myself) silk tie dyed some eggs on Sunday and you can see that below. I also linked you to the inspiration in case you’re interested in trying next year.

For now, I wanted to talk about my card that I made for The Greeting Farm’s Battle of the Design Teams. Over at TGF, they’re holding this contest/battle where a bunch of teams (around 60) are participating in challenges for 5 weeks. Each week, a team member of the group creates a card for the challenge of the week and are voted out by the public.

My team is called The Sunny Patch and the members are Joni, Melyssa, Sheri and myself. This week’s challenge was to create an easel card and so I made this nostalgic Alice in Wonderland theme card. I’ve been meaning to do something Wonderland since the Tim Burton version came out. I’ve always been intrigued in how she gets lost in the forest and meets with all these different characters. I’ve always imagined Wonderland bright and beautiful so that’s where the inspiration came from.

If you think my card deserves your vote, please leave a comment at the gallery HERE. That will count as your vote and Team Sunny Patch will move on to Week 3. Thanks so much! πŸ™‚

Below are the silk tie dyed eggs I mentioned earlier. This was the first year I’ve done eggs this way and I think this will always be the way I decorate eggs in the future because it’s SO simple and there’s really no mess! The original idea did come from the Martha Stewart site, but I first saw them here on Wendy’s blog. Wendy and her daughter also made a new batch for Easter 2010 as well.

Thanks for stopping by and your vote in the TGF Battle! It always means a lot. πŸ™‚
