A Precious Easter Bunnie:)


Good morning stamping friends!!! I hope your week has been kind to you:)  This week's challenge at SCACD Friends with Heart Challenge blog they want to see your A-R-T...
  1. A = ANY stamp from SCACD
    (Please note, the stamp must physically be in the store, not just the company-thanks!)
  2. R = RIBBON
  3. T = TWO patterned/ designer papers
This month, their opening month, the prize is a $50 gift certificate to SCACD!!! How KEWL is that!! But, in order to qualify...you have to play along.


When I saw what this week's challenge was all about, I knew I had to get inky with the mega-talented ladies at the Friends with Heart Challenge:)  I have been eying this adorable stamp and the patterned papers for about two weeks...so, this challenge gave me a very good reason to put them to use. Sad to say...I have had this precious Bunnie stamp for...ahem...forever, and haven't inked her up in too long. I know she was sad...along with the patterned papers...such a bad stamping mommy!!! Shame on me!!! Promise...I will do better...especially with such fabulous challenges around to inspire me to show equal attention to all my crafty babies:)

Bunnie was colored with Prismacolor markers; and believe it or not, I didn't add any sparkle to her Free Smiley Courtesy of www.millan.net!!! Can you believe it?! I am still struggling with that myself, but I really wanted to keep this card simple. And, with all the sparkle in the patterned paper, I don't think Bunnie minds. Oh! DO you see the teensy, yellow pearls in the corner? They were made with a Viva Decor pearl pen:) I tell ya, that stuff totally ROCKS!!!As much as I love to embellish my cards with pearls...it is total awesomeness to be able to make my own:)


For the card's interior, I decided to ink up a Studio G stamp my hubby purchased for me last year...another neglected stamp:( I colored this sweet, Easter basket with Prismacolor markers and pretty much left it at that. 


Here are a few more fabulous challenges that inspired me to create today's card:
Well, it is time for me to head on outta here...we have LOTS to do this wonderful Thursday morning:) I hope your day is filled with fabulous surprises!!! Thank you so much for dropping by:)

Blessings and Hugs!!!
Carolyn
