Springy Bunny Beauties!


Goooood Morning!  I hope you are off to a good start this week!   The kids have standardized testing this week so it's full steam ahead here!

** Lagene - winner of my blog candy, I would love to hear from you!  Please contact me via email and I will get your candy win out to you!**

This week, Deedee's Happy Monday Challenge blog brings you a new challenge - Easter!  For my card, I actually colored up this image when it was first released weeks ago ~ again, coloring before the card!  I set it aside and never made it into a creation until now - timing is everything, right? :)

I colored this, not as a traditional soft, spring Easter pastel colors but more to match the stuffed Easter Bunnies my mom would put in my brother's and my Easter baskets growing up.  She would always make sure a bunny was in the baskets: his usually purple or blue and mine was always pink :)  Such fond memories of the wonders of Spring I have and created this card to match.  And I'll send this card to mom and see if she remembers, too :P    The Bunnies are from the set "All Ears"  and the sentiment is from the set called "Gifts of Spring" - you can find them both here, in the shop!







Link up your card to the HMC Blog here and we'd love to see your Easter creations, too!

Blessings to you!
~Kelly
