Easter bunnies and eggs!

There are so many adorable Easter images available nowadays. This is a Bildmalarna stamp (so sad that they aren't in business anymore) and I think it's one of the cutest.

I'm busy with working my full-time job and maintaining after a husband, 2 dogs, and 3 cats so my time is pretty limited. My weekends are full with the fun stuff like chores and errands and I'm also working out in our garden, too. My dearest friend, Lillian, helped me out by making 2 Easter cards I could send out to loved ones. One Saturday afternoon I shut out the world and made this card for her!

I colored the image with Copics and added Cool Glitter Ritz to the eggs, butterflies and dragonfly. I did the background behind the bunny using a stipple brush. Here's a close-up of this adorable rubber stamped image.

My dies are the following:  around my image is by Memory Box, the butterfly die by Cheery Lynn, the dragonfly die by Magnolia, and the flower die by La-La Land. I used a Stampin' Up sentiment and punch.

Thanks for stopping by and a special thank you to Lillian for the cards she made for me!

My card is entered in these challenges:

  1. Let me assure you viewers out there, that this delightful Easter card sits right beside my computer monitor, and this photo doesn't do it justice! You really need to see how the glitz does sparkle and shine on the butterflies, dragonfly and the array of eggs! The ribbon has more color in it than the photo here, also. I am so blessed with my precious friend, Gail, and all the awesome cards she's made me over the years that grace my craft room wall -- for their awesomeness, as well as the inspiration and warm, fuzzy feeling I get at looking at them. And, you're oh-so-welcome for the cards I sent and hope they tickle the recipients as much as yours have done for me! A blessed and happy Easter to you, Gail -- may the bunny fill your basket to the brim and beyond !!
