Totally shopped my stash with some Bunny Hugs and Kisses!

Hi there!

First, I want to say I will be taking a bit of a blogging break. I will have things scheduled and posted, but will be away from my computer and craftroom for awhile. I will be back among the living in a few weeks. 

I never got around to making as many Easter cards as I wanted this year.  The next challenge was getting to the post office just didn't happen. There was just too much going on, but while I was putting some things away I just had to see if I could squeeze time in to make one more card, and I challenged myself to make every last bit of it from my scrap pile including the card base and the embossed pennant. 

I started with a Lilac Card base onto which I added my layers of solid and patterned papers. Next I added three pennant die-cut banners. I had a left over embossed scrap I decided to die-cut a pennant from since the letterpress technique had already been used in Milled Lavender. (knew I could use that someday) 

The sentiment and paper pieced bunny is from the newly released Paper Sweeties lines: Jelly Bean Time and Hippity Hoppity.  He's quite possibly the cutest bunny ever! :-) 

Inspiration was found and made putting together this card a piece of cake at Tuesday Morning Sketches

Smiles,
