Baby's First Easter

Happy Tuesday all!!

Sorry I've been MIA for a few days....I had a *horrible* weekend! It was one of those spurts when everything went wrong. My cat was sick, my son was sick, & my garbage disposal was sick! Puke everywhere....water everwhere....ugh! Things are better now, but I am way behind on everything!

I think I told you once or twice (lol) that I needed to do a custom card for a customer. It's a Baby's First Easter card for her granddaughter. Here is what I came up with....

I absolutely adore Bunny with Bonnet from High Hopes! The image is colored with Copics & cut out...I added Liquid Applique to the tail, & Fun Flock to the ears & chest. The papers are all DCWV....the designer paper is Nana's Nursery Baby Girl. I used the Martha Stewart Icicle border punch...& made it grass. Added some ribbon & flowers.....& a heart charm...the Baby's First Easter is printed on the computer, then cut out with my smallest Labels 4 Nestie.

This card is still pending approval. I originally had LA on the chest but she didn't like it...she said it reminded her of a beard so I took that off & added the Fun Flock instead. This is why I generally don't do custom orders....the customer & I always have different ideas! Well if she ends up not liking it, I will try again & this one will go into my Etsy shop!! Good think I love making Easter cards!

Thanks so much for visiting...I hope you enjoy your week!! My kids have yet another early day on Thursday, which will be filled with a visit to the eye dr (I think my 11 yr old needs glasses!), the Scout shop (he crosses over from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts in a few weeks...gotta get that shirt we were supposed to get a couple of years ago LOL) & a Scout meeting. They were supposed to have off Friday but they are thankfully making up a snow day :)

Hi Michelle!
I love what you did with Bunny, your coloring is so soft and pretty! Gorgeous cute papers too and way to use the icicle punch as grass! What a great idea! Beautiful bow and charm attachment too. xo
