PP682 Bunny Sketch

Hi there, stamping friends! Hope your weekend is going well so far....ours has been WET---what else is new? It always seems to rain on the weekend!  But that means no drought for the summer, right?  Anyway, I am the hostess at the Paper Players this week, and I have a sketch for you! This one is one of my favorites, and I use it often! I liked it so much, I made two! Check it out:

So here's my first one; I needed another Easter card, so I used some of those cute Impression Obsession bunny dies:

I used some Country Gingham circles, diecut with the Radiating Stitches dies, and an Our Daily Bread Designs sentiment; they're all mounted on a piece of CTMH Seabrook cardstock, embossed with the Cane Weave embossing folder.  

My second one uses some stitched flower dies:

I gave each flower a couple of leaves and a glimmer paper center!  A simple sentiment from Spellbinders finished it off!

I hope this sketch inspires you to make something pretty and fun!  Check out what the other designers created at the Paper Players blog and share yours there too!

Before the torrential rains came yesterday, I had a chance to go to Longwood on Friday; the morning was sunny and bright, although cool!  They have a display of blue poppies, and although they were almost finished, there were still some pretty ones.  I have to admit that the photographers were out in full force...there wasn't much room for spectators like me, but I did manage to get a couple of shots:

Their color is so vibrant! I'll have some more photos of other flowers coming up this week!  Thanks for visiting! Enjoy your day and be blessed!

I love both cards LeAnne, but those bunnies against the gingham are adorable! Fabulous photos too - I've never seen blue poppies like that before.
