Happy Tuesday, everyone!  And Happy April Fool’s Day!!   Wow, it was great to see the sun yesterday although it was so windy, it was difficult to do anything outside!  Arielle has a pretty color inspiration for us today, but it was a wee bit of a challenge for me:

I just received some cute little bunny & bow dies, and the challenge this week at CAS on Sunday was “stitched”, so here is what I came up with:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings ColourQ235 Easter Wishes LilInker Bunny Stampin

Not much stamping, just the gingham background on the River Rock panel, and the sentiment, which is from Loads Of Love Accessories.  I did add a little ruffled ribbon around the sentiment (it needs a wee bit of a trim, did that after the photo!) and as a final embellishment, I gave Miss Bunny a little Calypso Coral flower on her bow:


And, as always, the ColourQ Courtiers have done an awesome job with these challenging colors, so be sure to check them out….and share your creation as well!

Even though March was definitely going out like a LION yesterday, Cassidy insisted on having a picnic outside, complete with play food, dolls and her own booster seat:


Enjoy your day!

Are you sure these colors were challenging for you, because I don't see it! I think this is a wonderful card to celebrate Easter!

Cassidy looks like she was having fun in the sun that day. I guess as kids the weather was not an issue because I don't remember the "too cold/too hot" thing ever stopping me on my appointed play times! If only I could not let the temps concern me as an adult!!! That would be so freeing. Anyway, love your rabbit with its stitched everything. So fun with that ruffled trim around the greeting.
