Hoppy Easter!

We've had a very productive weekend. We have a huge christmas village that we put up on the plant ledge in our foyer and since I'm afraid of hights I'm at my husbands mercy to take it down. So this weekend we packed up the the village as well as the valentine's decorations. At the same time I put out the easter decorations so I'm definately embracing the easter season as the snow slowly is melting away. When I saw this weeks Stamping 411 challenge, I thought "What a great challenge!"

One of my favorite stamp sets from the mini catalog is Chocolate Bunny, maybe because it reminds me of my favorite food group, chocolate! I started with a piece of Orchid Opulence for the cardbase. I used the Shades of Spring DSP (the green strip kind of reminds me of grass) and matted it on a piece of So Saffron cardstock. A piece of Pretty in Pink Taffeta Ribbon was wrapped around the DSP and tied in a knot before adhering it to the cardbase. Then I stamped the Chocolate Bunny on Close to Cocoa cardstock with Chocolate Chip ink before cutting it out with Paper Snips. The easter eggs wer cut out of the same DSP pack with the small oval punch. The bunny is mounted with dimensionals so it pops.

Finally, the greating is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set and stamped with Chocolate Chip ink.

Nice and simple and sure to get you ready for spring. Have a great week!
