Happy Easter Bunny!

Hello!  Hope you are ready for Easter!  I am not!  I did already send out card earlier this week, so the two I made today will go in the stash for next year.  Which is good because I didn’t have nearly enough this year.

I made this first card for the Library Challenge for Watership Down.  I haven’t read it, but apparently, it is about bunnies and I was inspired by the colors on the cover.  The bunny is stamped in dark green, I think it works even if most will assume it is black.  

The second card was made for ModSquad’s Ready for Spring Challenge and SimonSaysStamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes.  I used some pretty blues for a very springy look!

Supplies:  Craft Smart (Michaels) 125531 Bunny stamp, Versafine Olympia Green ink, Hero Arts Shadow ink Pool, Recollections Backyard Table 6x6 paper pad, My Mind’s Eye The Sweetest Thing 6x6 Paper pad, Cuttlebug Decorative Tiles embossing folder, Die-Namics Pierced Squares die, other items from my stash

Hey!  You might have noticed that I have embossed and die cut things on this card!  I was recently able to replace my Cuttlebug!  It is the Version 3 and I have to say I like the improvements on it.  You can bypass the C plate altogether, by using their new grey embossing mat in the sandwich. I like it!

Also, I replaced the blade on my trimmer with a titanium one, and it is acceptable, for now!  I do still want to replace it and it sounds like a lot of you like the Tonic one, but gladly, that can wait for a while!

Thanks for stopping by!  See you again soon!

You can find me on facebook or pinterest, too.

Lovely car Heidi! It really does sum up Watership Down - we live not far from there and even here often see bunnies grazing in the lane leading to our house. I really do recommend that you read it - a book I would take with me to a Desert Island for sure!

I really like the fishtail banners and how you combined embossing with great designer papers! That little bunny is adorable and looks perfect within his little frame! Great Easter cards!
