Trucking down the Bunny Trail

Image

 

For a Hare Load of Fun!

With Easter around the corner, I had a few more Easter cards I wanted to share with you before popping them in the mail!

After stamping the backgrounds of both cards. For Truck/Bunny: hill, tree, grass, flowers, sky, and sentiment. And for BunnyEars/Teddy Bear: sentiments and green brush stroke. I added the stamped, assembled SVG Cut files on top to finish.

Using individual stamped SVG Cut piece made it easier for me to position the bunny in the truck with eggs. I assembled the different pieces, by adding adhesive to the back of the truck bed. Same for Teddy and his Bunny Ears and basket of eggs.

Thanks for Stopping by!

A little Last Minute Love

Be-Mine-OrnamentHappy Valentine’s Day!

My card today was inspired by a card that I saw on Pinterest – HERE.  I thought hearts hanging from a tree branch was a cute idea… and was happy to pull out the stamp sets: 3 Step Hearts and Multi Step Owl and Autumn Moon to do mine own version!

I then did a couple of Valentine’s Day tags with Multi Step Teddy Bear Wishes and Words of Love. It has turned into a tradition with our boys, to give them a container with their favorite candy.  It appears as they get bigger, so does the container! lol

Do you have a Valentine’s Day tradition that you have with your loved ones?

Wishing you all a day filled with love … and sweets!

A Teddy Flash Back Friday from Kitchen Sink Stamps … and a winner!

Be-My-ValentineToday Flash Back card was originally posted Jan. 2016. Not too far of a Flash Back but a fav of mine just the same. I have a real soft spot for this stamp set, Multi Step Teddy Bear Wishes because the inspiration for “Teddy” came from my oldest son’s teddy bear that was given to him by my mom when he was about 2 or 3 years old.  ❤

 

OK, on to the winner of last week’s giveaway… and the winning number was 2!

A Beary St. Patrick one minute …

… now a Beary St. Nick!    He’s a bear for many holidays!

Please don’t let the theme of this card imply that I have my seasons mixed up. I am attempting to get a jump start on my Christmas card making. I figure if I start now, I might be ready and have enough come late November … instead of my usual mailing my holiday cards AFTER Christmas! LOL!

Beary-Christmas by Kitchen Sink StampsTo help get my mission started, I took inspiration from SCS’s Fan Club Christmas Challenge – SCSCCMAR16 .
That is 1 Christmas card down … ??? to go!  – LOL!
