Hoppin' down the bunny trail,
Easter's on its way!"
Isn't this bunny just the cutest ever?! This is another image that I received from Nancy (directmailscrapper) at the Stamp Shack and I simply couldn't wait to color it in with my prismas. I didn't realize it, but I don't have that many stamps that I can color. (Sounds like an excuse to go shopping, huh? :)
Supply List: Stampin Up cardstock-barely banana, certainly celery, lavendar lace. Patterned paper-Pocket full of Posies stack. Nancy said the bunny was a Penny Black stamp. Made tag by printing "Hoppy Easter" on pc and punching with 1" and 1-1/4" punches. Dotted ribbon from M's.

What! Lost your mittens,You naughty kittens,Then you shall have no pie.
The three little kittens,They found their mittens,
What, found your mittens,Then you're good kittens,And you shall have some pie.
Three little kittens,Put on their mittens,And soon ate up the pie.Oh, mother, dear,We sadly fear,Our mittens we have soiled.
What! Soiled your mittens,You naughty kittens,
And they began to sigh.Meow, meow,And they began to sigh.
The three little kittens,They washed their mittens,And hung them out to dry.
What! Washed your mittens?Then you're good kittens!

I'm really very curious what everyone is wishing for. If you have a minute, please post your wish, just for FUN...and then on Friday I will draw a name and send you this Tinkerbella card! : )
Supplies: Patterned paper~The Pocket full of Posies Stack, Stampin' Up! summer sun cardstock~cuttlebugged with swirl embossing folder. Tinkerbella was colored with prismacolor pencils/gamsol, freehand doodling around the edge. The tag is from TAC "fun tags" and "make a wish" is from my very first ever stamp set~ SU Mini Mates. Also used slot punch, yellow brads, pink grosgrain ribbon, glitter pen.
Wish I may, wish I might, pick someone for my Bella card tonight...and the winner is: GrammaStamper (Barb) ! She left this comment:
"I wish for the Butterfly Kisses set from Papertreyink. Your card is lovely and I wish for that, too! "
It looks like Barb is going to get at least part of her wish! :)

The RX image is from a Stampin' Up! 2004 set called "Occasionally." I've stamped it in chocolate brown and embossed it with a clear embossing powder to give it a sheen. I'm not sure you can tell in the photo, but I've punched a hole in the cardstock with my 1-3/8" square punch. The RX image is punched out with the 1-1/4" punch and attached on the inside with stampin dimensionals so it fits in perfectly in the window. :) "Thinking of You" is a $1 M's stamp and the pink/white polka dot ribbon is from M's as well. Inside sentiment: "Wishing you a speedy recovery".
I've been wanting to try and make a Triangle Trifold card and since I had some scraps of Gerti's paper out, I found the tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers and started in. It's really a clever way to create a card and not as difficult as it appears! : )

Craft tip: To adhere a prima flower to your card with a brad. Lay your card on a soft paper piercing pad, prick a hole with a large punaise and the brad just fits in without distorting the cardstock.

I've used a series of blue patterned papers by Making Memories. The flower is the Big Blossom template printed on the back side of the pp and cut out. The "thank you" sentiment is from the Stampin' Up! set "Noteworthy". Very simple and quick card!
