Easter's on It's Way - Friday Sketchers #147

I so look forward to Fridays, not only because it is the end of the work week, but I love the sketches from the Friday Sketchers team. I find I use them over and over again. So here is my take on this weeks challenge:

Now ladies, I decided to try something new which I can not take credit for. I decided to incorporate the idea of creating a clay figure to match my card for family and friends. I got this idea from the very talented Gloria Dawson who inspired me the second I saw her GORGEOUS creations. Her work can be found here
Now after you see her work, remember, she's a pro at this and this is on of my firsts attempt so of course I see tons of flaws in the picture, so just give me about a hundred years and I'll catch up.

This is my second fimo creation, which is a little better than my first, My first was done for a DT challenge and will be posted in a few weeks
