Happy Easter

I hope you all had a Happy Easter! We sure did! Church, dinner, egg hunts... We hosted Easter dinner at our house and our parents brought all the fixings to us, plus some great basket gifts for our kiddos. Before they had even left I had already started brainstorming a Thank You card I would like to make.

I smiled as I considered a chocolate bunny with a bite out of him as the perfect subject of my card! When I was making it I even laughed a little bit to myself. He's just too cute! I stamped the bunny in chocolate ink and then trimmed him out by hand. I used my scallop punch to take a "bite" out of his back, one that looks like two big teeth.

When my family was over for Easter it was not TOO formal. They politely looked over the "craft room" that is temporarily a counter in my kitchen. I am in the middle of a few projects so I tidied it up, but did not make it disappear prior to our Easter. But, they could not resist noticing a jar on my type tray organizer... titled "Bunny Butts"! It got a few giggles and sparked a couple conversations... :) So, it is only too approriate that I use one of the said "bunny butts" as a fluffy tail on these cards!

The new sketch challenge for April from the Heart 2 Heart Challenge blog was perfect for this card! The bitten bunny is the accent on the lower corner. An Easter egg is by his side. The different colored bands are chevrons cut from the Dotty For You paper pack promotion. The polka dot backgrounds are from the same pack. The "Grateful for you" sentiment is from the Pemberley stamp set that comes with the Pemberley workshop on the go kit from Close to my Heart.

This Easter themed card fits the challenge from Cas-ual Fridays blog challenge CFC#47.
