I Do Love Sundays...

Here is a little bunny digi that I found in my stash... he's from Dustin Pike's place. I thought that maybe while I was there, I would enter a cute little challenge. I need to do more of these. :)

This card has glitter inlaid in the striped patterned paper (by Imaginisce) which is okay for sending to OWH, but I did glitter the eggs, which makes this card a no-no for the troops. Sorry troops,  gotta keep some cards to myself. :D I made this one as a 5x5 easel card. See all the bling that I added to the border punch? That's one of my new favorite things. This style is heavily influenced by Jenny Gropp. I have been stalking visiting her blog for quite a while now and I love what she does with her nesties and embellishments. Do you have a favorite paper crafting artist? I have so many...


It's sketch day over a Stars & Stamps - so be sure to stop over for Sketch #111.



I am loving the springy colors that I am playing with today. In addition to the Imaginisce paper, I used a Cuttlebg embossing folder, a Spellbinders nestie scalloped circle, a circle punch, some white embossing powder, and a really ancient "Spring is Here" stamp from the dollar bin at Michael's. Hubby has just turned NASCAR on, so you know what that means, nap time for me. :)  I love Sunday!

Nancy, I like the DP you used in both cards -- it is very springy. I like the little embossed birdies on your challenge card too. TFS
