Bunny Treat Holder

Yes, I'm getting ready for Easter a little early this year. I saw this Top Note treat holder on Angie Juda's blog around Christmas time and it popped up all over SCS. Then Jackie Topa shared a picture of her punched bunny -- I knew the two would go great together! Even better was discovering that three Ghirardelli Chocolates fit in here nicely. Love those chocolates, and had a bag just sitting downstairs waiting to be used. My bunny is a little different than Jackie's (because I used a smaller punch), but still cute. He's grasping a large egg punched from Raspberry Tart designer paper (I'm still in love with that paper!). I chose to use a smaller oval punch for the handle, then fiddled with almost every other punch I have until I found what looked right to pop out the "happy easter." The flowers and sentiment are from A Good Egg, and yes, I plan on playing with that again as soon as I get some time-- I'll post them when I do them!

More Botanical Blooms

I love this set! (Don't forget, as a SAB set, it is available only with a $50 SU purchase, and only until Mar 31). I had seen some very spring-like cards made with it, so using again some retired DSP (whittling that stash down little by little), and basically the same design as the birthday card we did for the SAB Mystery Hostess, I spent the afternoon stamping with Petra. 8 cards! None exactly the same, but all similar. Ihave to admit, I am starting to really like the Certainly Celery Poly-Twill ribbon, too (also a SAB selection). These 4 are the best ones. 3 are already addressed and stamped, waiting to wing their way to Kentucky to thank my parents and sisters for their birthday gifts. How did you spend your snow day?

I got my wish!

Boy, did I get it! Most of you know, when the talk would turn to spring, I would shake my head and tell you I just wanted ONE more snow day. Just one! We haven't exactly been blessed with snow this year. Yesterday, though, the flakes started falling and I will bet we have 9' out there! School is out (the kids are thrilled). I should be downstairs stamping but I just want to curl up with a cup of tea, a book, and the view!
