No Bunny Like You....TTTC244


We were all in egg decorating mode last weekend so after a romp in the snow it was time for hot chocolate and eggs. The kids loved a new coloring spinner thingy (does it have a real name?) I got and made some colorful designs with it.

It was my turn to design the board at Tic Tac Toe this week and I was definitely thinking spring.  I went down the left side of the chart making an egg wreath using spring colors and twine.   Hope you join us!

Just Chicken In! FMS629


All of the egg cards that I have been making made me think of chickens.  I remembered this stencil/stamp set I got a while back and thought it would work perfectly with Amy's sketch.  Lots of stenciling and tiny stamping but it was fun to do  - especially since we didn't go anywhere for 24 hours.  After a terrible snow drought this winter we finally got 20 wonderful inches of fluff!  Emma and Will showed up anyway for our planned egg decorating fest but the lure of that snow was too much.  We all had a grand time outside.  The snow was so deep we had to carry it up on the porch for snowman building.....

Amy has a sweet sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Hope you join us!

Morning Wake Up.....FMS628


I often enclose a gift certificate for a local coffee shop as part of a thank you or a thinking of you card.  The set Latte Love is perfect to use for such a card! Lots of delightful images and dies that even an avid tea drinker like me can enjoy!

Have fun with Narelle's great sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

Ear to Ear.....FMS627


So am I the only one who thinks up a story when creating a scene card like this one?!?  In my mind that Easter Bunny is hoping the sweet gardener hands over a carrot or two for his lunch - in exchange for a flower or an egg of course!

This card is headed to my cousin who has invited us over for Easter Brunch. My favorite invitation of the year - always a fun event and a great kick off to spring!

Karren has a wide open sketch for us today at Freshly Made Sketches!  Have fun with it!

Oh, For Peeps Sake! FMS626


Can't you just hear that Momma Bunny telling that little guy to stop fooling around in the egg and come out and help her?  She has a lot of eggs to decorate in the next few weeks!

The inspiration for this card came from a picture taken in a photo booth at the Children's Museum in Rochester last week.  We tried to explain to Will what was going to happen when he and Emma climbed in. I dropped the money in - or I should say put my credit card in because those photo strips are no longer a quarter nor do they take cash - $5.00 - yeow!  Anyway I closed the curtain - Emma barked orders - and the lights flashed.  And out of the strip of four pictures, this one is my favorite....

I would say we got five dollars worth of laughs of that shot!

So enjoy yourself and have fun with Cecile's unique sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!
