Easter's on it's Way!

Just a couple of little Easter cards I whipped
up over the past day or so.
I am really enjoying making my own rosettes
and think one of the best videos
on how to make them is by Meg from Archivers.

I love this fun paper from Kaisercraft.  It's from the
'Bubblegum Hills' Collection and has some great ways it
can be cut apart for card makers.
All the stamps are from Hampton Arts.

Here is another version, but this time, I stamped
white cardstock in alternating pink and green inks
using this lace doily from Hero Arts.
I then placed it on top of aNOTHer stamped lace
doily, which was white embossed.

This fun Easter DP is from The Paper Company.
I had to break out a Martha punch for the heart
border, just for something a little different.

I love the sketch which is from Hero Arts
and Paige from CARDS is looking for Easter
projects this week, so will share these with her.

Hope you have had a lovely weekend.
There are storms brewing headed towards
Northern Illinois, so not sure how my weekend
will end, but I am sure all will be well.

OH....thought I would share our newest house guest
with you!  Paul added to my ever-growing collection
of rabbits...not just stuffed, but of many forms, but
Hazel is on a whole new dimension....

She is a 4-ft beauty and all decked out!

So I guess my weekend is ending quite nicely....
