Bunny Time

Things still aren't all that warm here in PA.  We may even be getting a bit of snow tomorrow.  We're already a week into Spring.  My crocus are blooming.  The snow drops are pretty.  But I'm not seeing much green other than the fuzzy blanket I've been cuddling under most of the week while I've been nursing a wicked sore throat. 

These cute bunny slippers and sentiment are a digi image from Doodle Pantry.  It was a fairly simple card to put together, a quick color with markers and fussycut for the image, a little embossing, a homemade crocheted circle, a bunny brad from Eyelet Outlet, a piece of chevron ribbon, and some clear skittles for noses.

Guess it's time to get some of these Easter cards in the mail.

Double Click Skittles Challenge #18 - Use a bunny, basket or Easter
Crafty Creations Challenge #285 - Chevrons or Stripes

Is anyone else headed to the Heirloom Stamping Show in Allentown, PA this week-end? 
I'm hoping to get there!

Operation Write Home Mid- Month Throwdown

A dear friend, who is not a blogger, has asked me to enter this card for her in the Operation Write Home March Mid-Month Throwdown - Red, White & Blue.  I hope that is allowed because I think her card is awesome!

I think I might have to borrow that stamp!
Love your card, Sybilla!

Monday Sketch Cards

Not feeling my best today, but I'd feel worse if I didn't get these 2 cards posted.   
Well, maybe not really worse.  I just have this thing about getting them posted as early as I can.  I've had them made for a while.  I kind of got distracted on another project, making an inside step card with only 3 steps.  The directions are for 4 steps.  I do believe I got it figured out.  Now back to my Monday cards....
 For both cards I've used the freebie papers and sentiments from the March Issue of Quick Cards, since it was laying on my craft table.

Card #1 is for the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #100:

Birthday Girl


My mother asked me to make a birthday card for her to mail to a little girl.  The CTMH Cricut Cartridges, both Art Philosophy and Artiste, really helped me out on this one.  The stamps are CTMH, too.  I added a couple stickers, some glitter on the cupcake frosting, embossed one BG paper and corner punched the other.

Today's Challenges include:
Allsorts Challenge Week 303 - Cakes/Cupcakes
Send a Smile 4 Kids Challenge - Pastel Colors for Kids
Chocolate, Coffee and Cards Challenge #87 - Something Yummy to East or Drink
Sieze the Birthday Challenge - Focus on the Sentiment - "Birthday Girl"
Sparkle n Sprinkle March Challenge - Glitter, EP, or Flock

Kittens and Chicks

Gerde has done it again!  
And, just what has Gerde done?, you might ask. 
She's supplied us with another cute digi for March's Challenge at Gerde Steiner Designs

I am also entering these challenges:
Challenge Up Your Life #11 - Easter
Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge #114   - Bright Spring Colors + Ribbon
Crafty Ribbons Challenge - Anything Goes with Ribbon
Fab n Funky Challenge #251 - Spring into Color
Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge #219 - Favorite Embellishments (I really love the little charms, although they are hard to find in our local stores and expensive .  I picked up a package of these little butterflies on clearance.  When I pulled one off the card, the circle link stayed where it was.  So this little guy is just glued on the card instead of hanging from the bow.)
