Bunny Treat Holders

Today's post was inspired by the video at Dawn's Stampin' Studio and I thought these were adorable for Easter notes.
 I just knew I wanted to make some for my class club as Thank You treat holders.
I made the main bunny card exactly like the video using the Stampin' Up "designer frame heart" dies and the "blossoms petal builder" punch.
I decided to make my treat holders 3D, so I bought a bag of plastic Easter Eggs for my bunny bodies, and then I just added an addition heart out of heavy weight cardstock for the feet.
 I put a piece of foam tape that will hold the egg upright with ease, even when full of candies. Here's my bunny butt and tail. Each bunny's bow matches the egg body color. Too funny eh?
Here's a peek at the inside of the cards. I used the Thanks from the SAB "Outlined Occasions" sentiment.
Oh Yeah.... I made a few more for my grandkids, but the card inside has LOVE from the same set and "Happy Easter".
 I sure hope the girls like em'!
The more I look at them ... they look more like hampsters!

Spring is Tugging at my Heart Strings

Hi everyone. Well today is a beautiful Spring Day or so it seems because the sun is shining, the weather is comfortable and it makes me think of my sweet grandchildren. Soon they'll be playing in the yard on a regular basis so I decided to make a few digital pages while I'm enjoying my morning coffee. The thing I LOVE about MDS digital scrapbooking is that it is so stinkin' FAST!
So here are the three pages I made today.
My oldest Hannah 9 years.
The middle child Becca 6 years. I previously did this photo in another colored layout but I thought it would look nice in black & white.
Last but not least is the little man Brian 3 years and he LOVES his cars!
Well that's it for my crafting this weekend.
I hope you enjoyed viewing my scrapbook page layouts as much I enjoyed making them. I was trying to use some of new released items. Check out the tag labels for some of the items I used.  Now sooner or later I have to get some of these pages printed!

Spring has Sprung with a Twist {PP885} & {PPA130}

Hi everyone! Today I'm posting my card for two challenges! I just Love when that happens, don't you?
The Paper Players has a "Spring has Sprung" challenge #85 and Jaydee thought it was time to make a Spring card. 
Then the Pals Paper Arts has a "Color with a Twist" challenge #130, and we must use Lucky Limeade, Always Artichoke (or similar colors) and add a color of your choice.
The color of choice for me was Melon Mambo and here is my card.
I finally broke down and tried this cute flower featured in the SAB book. I thought it was going to hard, but in fact, it's pretty darn easy. I used two of the 'flirtatious fabric' patterns for the blossom. Just a few stitches to hold everything together and wallah!
A cute button tied with embroidery yarn to make the center, then the blossom sits atop the die cut leaves. The base is Artichoke, then layered with the lighter green. (can't believe I used wild wasabi instead of lucky limeade! - dahhh). I guess I forgot that from the time I looked at the challenges to the time it took me to go down to my scrap room!
Here's a peek at the inside that will remain blank until I decide the occasion to mail. The flower is also from "Apple Blossoms" set and I thought it worked well with the fabric flower. In fact this fabric flower went together so easy, I made another but this time I reversed the green card stock placements and used the "Fun Flowers" die cuts in the same fabric I had in my stash for the blossom.
 The good news is I did use a lucky limeade button on this one! BUT it's not matching that wild wasabi too well.
The sentiment and random back stamping is also from the "Apple Blossoms" set on both cards. If you look close you'll notice the back stamping behind the blossom and to the left, as well as behind the sentiment. Sorry but this is not a very good photo.
Now before I go... I have to confess one more thing. This morning while blog surfing some of my favorite designers, I made a comment on Ann Marie Hile's blog about OCD. She said she would redo part of her card when her OCD kicked in. I commented that I just don't have OCD and would let it go... too much work.
Well... I DID have to redo my second card!
When I went to glue the inside piece I realized I had glued the front piece on but the card was UPSIDE DOWN... so it opened backwards. What a STUMPER I am. Needless to say I had to rip the front off, turn the card around and reglue the panel on the card front.
