Still crankin' out the Easter cards . . .

Easter cards are so much fun for me to create! I just love the colors, the themes, the flowers, and . . . well, the candy {sheepish grin}. Making these cards was a blast!



I can't decide which design I like better--so tell me which one is your favorite!

That pink subway-art style panel is the Easter Noteblock from Purple Onion Designs. I just LOVE their noteblocks and recently acquired a stack. I think I'll have every holiday/season covered now! I just noticed that Purple Onion has a spring sale going on right now--20% off stamps ordered through March 31. That's a great deal!

That adorable cottontail rabbit is from Repeat Impressions and has been in my stash for quite a while now. I embossed him in bronze on chocolate chip cardstock. I was hoping that he would turn out looking like a chocolate Easter rabbit. I don't know--did I succeed?

The yummy jelly beans are from a long-retired Mason jar stamp set from the now-defunct Angel Company.

The daisy patterned paper is from the SEI Vanilla Sunshine collection and the plaid paper is from an old DCWV butterflies stack I found in my stash. I just realized that both background papers are glittered, so there is all kinds of texture going on in these two cards!

I'm playing along with these challenges:
The rest of my week is going to be super busy! We have dentist appointments today, orthodontist appointments tomorrow (plus lots of errands for me), after-school activities on Thursday (plus a lunch date with friends for me), an early release day for the kids on Friday (we've re-scheduled the outing-with-friends for a free IMAX movie at the Museum of Science in Boston; the one we had to cancel because of snow at the beginning of the month), plus Holy Week services. I'm not sure when I'll be able to catch my breath next!!! But it's all good :)

Thanks for stopping by to share a little slice of bliss with me!

Both these cards are so cute Emily-my fave is the first one I love the dp you used-and your bunnies have great texture-they look like the real thing

I like the first card best, the green and pink are so bold together. And your Easter bunny rocks! It looks like it is wrapped in foil! It is so cool.

Both cards are gorgeous! Love the Subway Art! I have not seen that one and will have to check out! I sure didn't get all the Easter cards made I wanted too this year! You have made some fantastic ones!

I love the jelly beans by the bunny on one and the gingham ribbon makes me love the other best..sooooo, I couldn't choose. They're both great and the bunny looks so real and chocolate-y, I want to take a bite. :-)

Enjoy your fun-filled week.

These are both awesome! I love the chocolatey bunnies! And the jelly beans (my personal weakness, lol). If I HAVE to pick a fave I'm going to pick the first - I love the combined bow & that little flower charm!
What a busy week ahead - you'd better stock up on chocolate to keep your energy up through it!

The embossing of the bunny is amazing! The texture really looks like chocolate (now I'm hungry). The pps are very pretty--I like them both. It sounds like you had a busy week. I hope you had a great Easter!
