Eggcellent Easter

I thought about making small cards this year for easter treats but instead I decided for the quick and easy tag :)  So following the colour challenge from AnnaBelle Stamps Blog this week - 'say it in yellow and white' (I luv yellow!), Through the Craftroom Door - tags for easter or spring, Jay Gees Nook Blog photo inspiration - inspired by easter eggs! and CAS-ual Fridays - 1,2,3 - a pattern, an image and a sentiment ... I made this little tag ...

I love these little eggs from the 'eggcellent' stamp set (Jillibean Soup) and I put little pearls for the eyes and created a pupil with a permanent black marker!
Normally we are not easter type people (having no children seems to be the reason!) but we will be spending Easter here in Melbourne this year and I think I might make up small chocolate treats for the family so if I get cracking now I should be able to do a few more tags before easter so then it is not a last minute rush!
materials - white and yellow cardstock; MME 'Stella & Rose Gertie' papers; Jillibean Soup 'eggcellent' stamps, MFT 'mini banner day alphabet' stamps; StazOn jet black ink, Versa Color canary ink; Kaisercraft pearls; black marker; yellow gingham; bow easy; Sizzix oval tag die (large tag); Ranger buttercup liquid pearls.
thanks for looking.
