Illustration Friday: subtract


If you subtract the background it becomes an easel back greeting card. My submisssion for Illustration Friday's "subtract" is an Egg House from my Applesaucey kids card line.


We dog sat Nomi for 6 days, she is the most well behaved love bug and she was Ratty's friend :)

What a wonderful way to start the spring! Your card is so lovely..and SEE ..you were easily able to stand an egg on its end for the vernal equinox.

(Yes I know it's just a myth, but we do it every year anyway.)

Hugs to Naomi!

aw Nomi looks like she's missing Ratty, now I have to go hug my dogs.

Love the candy holidays! Hubby already got me my chocolate easter bunny, can't believe it's survived so far, but I fear its days are numbered!

Very cute egg house!

What a clever card! And in such soft colors, too. Beautiful. It's hard to stand an egg up on end like that. Hooray for the easel. :)
