Here Comes the Easter Bunny!

It is a very special time of year when that cute, fuzzy, adorable little white bunny come hopping around hiding Easter eggs and filling up baskets. This month I held my first young girl (9-11 year olds) stamp club. It was tons of fun. I originally scheduled the club for two hours and realized quickly that it was going to be well over 3 before we completed all three projects! I have a little 4 year old boy so I am not used to 3 hours filled with nonstop giggling. It was truly an experience - one that I enjoyed! Next time, we will replace the cupcakes with tons of turkey. Hee hee. Anyhoo, we did 3 really cute projects all Easter related. I am posting only two as the third project we decorated Easter eggs with the Stampin Up Eggcellent Eggs Kit (SOLD OUT).

The two cards were fun to make. The flower card was inspired by one of my favorite bloggers, Dawn McVey of My Favorite Things. She uses the most unsual color combos on her projects - thus encouraging me to try something out of my comfort zone. I love the way this card turned.
Supplies for the flower card are:
Whisper White CS 100730
Bernuda Bay CS 115317
Certainley Celery CS 105125
DSP - Shades of Springs (Occasions Mini) 117160
Pretty in Pink satin ribbon (Occasions Mini) 117289
Green Galore ink pad 102122
Petal Pizzazz Stamp Set 113417
1" Circle Punch 109046
Bold Brights Brads 106957

The second card was challenging for the girls. They could not stop eating the candy! This is my first attempt at a punch project. The poor little Easter bunny is missing 2 of his foot pads, but I did not realize it until after I took the photo and I am not at home to replace them. But you get the jest of it. He's cute.
Supplies for the Bunny card are:
Large Oval 107305
Ornament (Holiday Mini)
3/4" Circle 107217
1/2" Circle 104390

What is up with that?

Busy. Busy with life. Between work, school, husband and 4 year old, training for Avon walk, and moving family around I have not had much time for crafting. What is up with that? Well, my hubby and I have spent much needed alone time the past two days and guess where we are going tonight!!!????? Give you a hint:

Can you say "yum yum". My darling husband got me 17th row tickets. Should be loads of fun. So, I will not be crafting tonight either but will be soon as I have a stamp camp and Little Girl Stamp Club this weekend.............
