Please excuse my dust....

My blog is work in progress this week... sorry. I decided it was time for something a bit different, and had some problems with a few things. And of course I won't be home most of today or tomorrow so I will be working on it a few minutes here and there until it is all fixed.









I will admit... I am a little sad Valentines Day is over... I was having fun with all my new LOVE images - you may still see one here and there ;0







But here comes EASTER! And watch out people Helene at Alota Rubber Stamps has a whole bunch of really adorable image!! REALLY GO SEE... HERE this will take you to all of the new images this month... lots of bunnies, chicks and such.




Then also she has a new set that you really will want - A Furniture Set - perfect for all of your character images. How cute are they? You can have a chance to win this set at Paper Craft Planet - the Alota Rubber Stamp group has an Inspiration Challenge and the prize is this very set of stamps!








Now to my Easter Card - This bunny is probably suppose to be a cute fluffy bunny - but I was craving chocolate, and so this guy is a solid chocolate bunny! Not one of those cheap hollow ones! Solid mmmm.
I colored him and the egg with my Copics, funny thing here - I colored the egg and the ribbon and held it up so show Hubby and we both at the same time laughed, it looked like a lemon wrapped in a bow - so I went back and "dyed" some zig zag stripes on it. White gel pen is used to dot and high light both the egg and the bunny, then Diamond Stickles is put on both of the bows for some much needed bling.
My papers - well the pattern paper has no name on it, don't even have a clue where I got it. I then picked three shades of card stock to match and sewed down - the layout is from Splitcoast Stampers sketch challenge SC214 .. my very first time I have done one of their sketch challenges.
I was stumped on what to use for a sentiment.
Nothing seemed to be the right size or shape. I finally used my "Slice" and cut the word Easter , hand wrote the word Happy and then stickled the letters - I like how it turned out.
Today is Donkey Day at the Rodeo - I love Donkey Day - we don't show any of our Donkeys, but I just love to go and watch. Especially the fun stuff like the courses and stuff. Hubby loves to watch the big donkey, mules and mammoth sizes. He would love to have some of those! Better get dressed, with a few layers it is chilly here! And get going so we don't miss much - I'll be back later to comment on some blogs and hopefully work on my mess -
HUGS and Happy Monday!
