FMS428 Easter Bunny

Happy Monday, peeps!  Are we still putting on a brave face?  It's getting a little more challenging for us, but we are persevering!  I had a fun hour and a half this weekend doing a video chat with my Retro Rubber teammates!  They dragged me into 21st century technology and I didn't do too badly, LOL!  But I am having a little trouble getting motivated to stamp, I think we all feel that way!  I did manage to eke out another Easter card using the FMS sketch, squeaking it in in the nick of time:

I have lots of Pleased as Punch DSP so I thought I'd better use some of it up with my little bunny from Fable Friends:

Since I did a pink card yesterday, I thought I'd choose a color I don't use much, Mango Melody.  It's a little strong, and I am not 100% sure I like it here, but after you've put time into a card, you don't have the heart to let it go, so I persevered on this one too!  I stamped my little cutie in Smoky Slate and used a Blender Pen and some ink to color in her jacket, then used Blends to shade her fur.  I had cut out a little bunch of flowers to accent my sentiment, but couldn't quite figure out where to put it, and then I decided to give her a little crown:

Doesn't she look sweet?  It fit her little noggin perfectly!  My sentiment is from a retired set called Delightful Dozen, and I have always loved the font in this sentiment.  It was stamped in Mango Melody as well and diecut with a Stitched Rectangle die.

She'll get added to my pile of Easter cards to be sent out!

On a happier note, I was thrilled that my PBS station started a new season of Call The Midwife!  Are there any other CTM fans out there?!  LOVE that show!  And just a gentle reminder, I have had a few questions lately about items I use in making my cards, but my readers have not given me an email address.  If you leave a comment and your name is not associated with an email address, sadly, I cannot answer your question!  I usually do put a little recipe at the bottom of my post that lists my ingredients, so hopefully that will help!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

What a cutie - love the little fussy cut flowers on his head! I think the Mango Melody works - if you think it’s too much you could always sneak in a vellum circle to tone the background one down a bit, but I’m not sure it needs it. Love the sound of your Retro-Rubber craft along - I was having a similar conversation with Jan about doing one to see if it would get us out of our crafting rut, so glad you nailed the technology! And congratulations on your GDP win today - I had a premonition this one was going to win, that wreath was adorable! Have a great day x

I rarely use Mango Melody either but I love how you used it here. The flowers on her head are awesome. This is such a cute stamp set but I don't own it. I can borrow it from a friend though...whenever I see her again! Congrats on being picked for Guest Designer on the next color challenge at GDP. That's quite an honor! Have a blessed week.

LeAnne I love that 'hand-colored' look of this DSP! and that you've created a little crown of blooms from it for your cute little bunny is the best!
As for the color? I LOVE mangoes, so it suits me more than fine!
I am a HUGE CTM FAN!!! But have binge-watched every single episode already - maybe I should start from the beginning, and love them each another time?
Take care, my friend - thanks for this sweet little card in my inbox!
