Are You The Easter Bunny?


This early Spring weather we are having here in this part of WI has had me looking at all of my stamps and digital images that can be used for Easter cards and projects. It continues to be 80 degrees here and is so amazing. The weatherman said that this is our earliest Spring since 1896.

My card today is a combination of two of Mo Manning's digital images - the dog Bronte is taken from the image "Bella and Bronte at Easter" and the sweet little girl is "Big Shoes" - and the eggs are from a Stampendous wooden stamp called "Easter Egglets". I have entered the card on Mo's Challenge Blog which you can check out at The theme of the current challenge is 'Buttons and Bows' and my bows are on her hat and his collar, with the little buttons added on the corners of the card.

I added some Stickles to all of the Coral-colored images - the inside of Bronte's ears, the flowers on her hat and her purse, the heart on her bloomers, the eggs and the buttons - to add a little bling. I also added white dots to the border and blue dots in between the flowers of the paper pattern and added cut out flowers to the yellow egg and a cut out bow to his collar.

Thank you for stopping by to visit my blog today! I love reading your e-mails and comments - thank you for taking the time to send them! Wishing you a happy day today!

What a bright and cheerful card! Hey, but if you could give us back our Arizona weather, I surely would appreciate it. I am one cold lizard.

What a fun card. I've been enjoying all my springy/Eastery stamps also. So much fun this time of year to see all the bunnies and chicks.

Hi Barbara,
My wonderful package of designer paper arrived safely today. Thankyou so much for making my day.
Muim is now in a care home and as I cannot get to visit her every day I have decided to make her a card every week and send to her so your papers will be making her day for her too. Hug hugs Mrs A (aka ValeryAnne).
