Happy Easter

These three little bunnies were trouble makers! Have you ever just kept on with an image until you have gone too far? Well that is what happened here. I wasn't even going to post it, but then I thought I had spent so much time on it, and you can't be totally thrilled with every card so here it is. This is a fun Happy Hoppers House Mouse stamp that I got months ago when Hobby Lobby had their stamps 50% off. I knew it would make a cute Easter card. I started by coloring these guys in with my prisma pencils. Then I used a few copic markers, especially the background. Well it just didn't feel right, so I pulled out my Sakura Glaze Pens, the plan was to just highlight... umm yea. When the were drying they got darker and darker. I wanted just a bit of shimmer so I rubbed some of my shimmering chalks. Ok I really need to stop! The card stock is Bazzill Bling and the pattered paper is American Crafts. I added the cute dot ribbon, and white gel pen. I showed it to hubby... he said it looks like the eggs are fine, we are in Texas and Fiesta is coming, they are suppose to be bright. Ok, I guess I don't mind the bright eggs, if the paper had been brighter to match. Oh well it is made now.

I am so excited, I placed another order yesterday for some of the new Magnolia stamps! Oh they are just too cute. I got a few more accessories this time. I had to have the park bench and the heart carved tree. I tried to be good, and stick to a budget, but I really wanted more than I had in my cart. I started a new wish list, and by the way... have you heard they are going to have pattered papers to match their adorable little angels? Oh my... I can't wait!!! Wish they didn't have to travel so far to get to me!

Hope you all have a great "Good Friday"!
