Happy Easter!!

Good morning, everyone, & Happy Easter!! It's time for another High Hopes challenge, & this week it's Crissy's turn to host! The challenge is Pierce It......so find your paper piercer or needle...or you can use your sewing machine....& make some holes!!!



For this week's card, I used Maribelle Cow. I colored her with Prismas & gamsol, & added just a touch of Twinkling H2O's. I covered her bell in Crystal Effects & glitter.....because this cutie needed some bling!! The papers are SU's Chocolate Chip, Bazzill, & SEI Aunt Gertie's Garden, which I picked up at Hobby Lobby about 2 years ago!! I love it, but I've hardly used it. I used my Nesties for the circles, added some Chocolate Chip ribbon & some brads in the corners. And for my holes, I used my piercer on the scalloped circle & the pink layer. Even though I used my Mat Pack, it still ended up not quite a straight line. Hmmmm....maybe I've worn out my Pack & need a new one, lol!




Here's a closeup of Mari with her sparkly bell.




And here's a picture of the inside....yep....more piercing!!

Be sure to pop over to the High Hopes blog to see what the other Divas have created. And, as always, you can join in the fun & be entered to win a couple of HH goodies!!

I hope you all have a fabulous Easter. We are going to my mom's later, where the kids will get even more candy & we'll fill up on Deviled Eggs & smoked fish. I always eat so much of that stuff, that I'm too full to eat dinner!!

Here's a picture of my kiddos, after they found their baskets this morning. They were more excited about the Bakugan then the candy!! Of course, as I type this Michael is at the kitchen table stuffing his face with chocolate, lol!!




Tomorrow it's back to school & work......have a great week!!
