Oooooo....that's bright!

Hello & happy Wednesday!! I'm not even going to comment on the weather....because it's the same. Cold, white, & very unsunny. Have I mentioned I'm ready for spring?

Speaking of spring, it's about time I started working on Easter cards!! High Hopes has lots of fun Easter stamps, which are available at 7 Kids College Fund!

I used Bunny With Gift ....colored with Prismas & a bit of Twinkling H2O's. Had to make the egg sparkly :) I had picked out these fun papers from The Paper Studio, but I underestimated how bright they were!! Yikes!! Well they definitely scream spring!! The other papers are DCWV & SU's Razzleberry something (a color I hadn't used before). I cut the image using my Nesties Labels 9 & the matte with my Nesties Labels 3. The usual stitching & flower cluster....with some pearls added to the punched Razzleberry layer. Oh, & of course I added Liquid Applique to his tail....can't have a bunny without a fluffy tail!!

Such an adorable face on this bunny!!

Here's the inside, & the matching envelope....all ready to put into my Etsy shop!! I often make my envelopes using the Enveloper, but for this card, which isn't too bulky, I used just a store bought white envelope. I always line my envelopes with matching card stock or paper....just so everything matches & looks pretty :)

I hope you enjoy the rest of your kids get out early tomorrow (11:30....what's the point of going??) & then they are off on Friday. I'm sure they will be at the height of bickering by Friday night. Thank goodness for Ipods!!
