I am still working on my Easter cards to get them ready to send out this year. I love this time of year and I especially love the colors and themes relating to spring and Easter.

Here are my latest two creations and of course they are done using some recently posted challenges!

This Happy Easter card uses the sketch from Shirley's 2 Girls. I missed the deadline, but I still liked the sketch and wanted to use it! The stamp is another adorable Elzybells stamp that I got from Amuse. I love these little Chicks (or are they ducks??) and I have several of these images on different stamps of hers. The DP used on this card is from the MM Chloe's Closet set like I am giving away in Sunday's BLOG CANDY. I love these papers and will be using them a lot more in the future!

The second card is cute and feminine (IMHO) and I think I will be giving it to my sweet little GD Shaelynn for Easter. The stamp is an old SU bunny from 2001 that I bought on Ebay. I thought it looked like it was hopping and therefore made it perfect for the sentiment I chose to use. This card is full of details... from the border punch to the bunny buttons, to the fluffy embossing on the tail, to the little pearl embellishments, and even to the machine stitiching! This was one of those cards where more was never enough! LOL!

The sketch was from Paper Craft Planet's Saturday Sketch. I mirrored the image and chose to use a circle instead of a flower for the accent piece. The gingham paper is also from MM and the adorable mint green Hoppy Easter was a Michael's find this week! Love it!!

Here is a close up of the bunny hopping! (LOL!)

I am a little short on time today and didn't post the The Fine Print for the cards, so if you have any questions about any supplies that I used to make these cards, just leave me a question in the comments section.

Thanks for looking, don't forget to sign up for the BLOG CANDY and have a great day!

May your bucket be overflowing with the warm colors and pretty images of spring!
