Here Comes the Bunny!


What this card says! LOL

I cannot believe Easter is just a week away and it really sneaked up on us after this extended cold winter. Speaking of winter, we're apparently getting another round of snow on Tuesday, so I hope the Easter bunny has an extra layer of fur to keep warm this year! Spring just hasn't come around here yet and we'll probably go directly into a hot, steamy summer once this cold goes away.

I made this fun card with a PTI stamp set in colors of turquoise and white with a little pop of green done with a SNSS grass die, and a snippet of checked paper that matched. I die cut the panels with a Lil Inker stitched rectangles set, and lastly added a little ball of cotton for his tail. 
I thought this little guy was so cute, I decided to make one in my favorite color combination of purple and green!


Since I make cards for hospitalized kids, I made a few more to send to them!


This cute PTI stamp set was part of a prize I won back in Darnell's first NBUS challenge, and this is the first time I've used it to make cards, so I'm entering these cards into her NBUS#4!  She's reached 800 followers, isn't that incredible? Soon we'll all have to put together an "Acraftamy Awards Show" to honor her accomplishments!


I'm also taking these bunnies over to the Snippets Playground #170 and maybe Parsnip will like some fuzzy playmates too :)

Have a wonderful day everyone and thanks for stopping by!

More snow on Tuesday? What???? I didn't even look at the future forecast yet since we got home. We stayed in PA Friday night and started out early yesterday morning for the last part of our trip home. We woke up to snow and it snowed and sleeted most of our way home. Then last night we got another dusting. Anyway to the important matter at hand: These precious cards. They are so darling and I love all of them, but because your favorite colors and mine are the same I have to favor the purple and green one. The cotton ball is so fabulous. The "kids" will get the biggest kick out of these. Fun, fun, fun. Have a delightful Sunday.

Oh NO! I didn't hear about the SNOW (four letter word!!!) forecast!
Although, I'm not entirely surprised...I remember many years where we still had snow in Easter.

Speaking of Easter...your cards are really cute! I like how you added the cute little tail, and made them in all those yummy colors.

Carol, May I post your card to my blog?

Oh how totally adorable Carol!! I just love these cuties!

I did giggle about the possible ruination of a couple of punches on acetate trying to make a mask - guess who almost did the same AND came close to wrecking her Cuttlebug when she resorted to dies!! None of them really worked properly anyhow which is why I resorted buying the mask :) Good luck in the draw!

Hugs

Aww, these are adorable Carol! I love all the fun, springy colors you have used on the cards. Love the patterns in the papers too, but it is that cute bunny that catches my eye. lol He is adorable! Yes, where the heck is spring?!! Snow yesterday, thankfully it didn't lay-and hopefully it won't on Tuesday either. I'm kinda' thinking it will be another cool summer like last year, but it could just as easy be a hot one. Hard to say. Just stay warm Carol! Hugs, Brenda

What a great design, I especially love the purple and green one too. I love how you've cut the bunnies out in patterned paper. xx

Oh my goodness Carol, just how often do you create? I can't get over here fast enough it seems. You are really on top of things. Those Easter cards are absolutely darling. The kids will love them. I didn't make a single one this year and I think it is too late to start.
