Easter Bunny Card

It seems as though the "Crafting Bug" has taken a hold of me once again, and although I should be packing for our Easter Break trip I have become usual!  LOL

I was googling "Easter cards" and came across this adorable idea!!!  I had to improvise as I did not have all the Stampin Up punches, but the recipe for this one is pretty simple.  Large circle, smaller circle (it could be any cutting device, cricut, silhouette, spellbinders etc), I did use the Large Stampin Up oval punch and then had to use my spellbinders for the smaller pink ovals, the toes are from the Stampin up double circle punch (but you could even just color some cute little toes with a marker), and the tail is the Stampin Up boho punch which I glittered up.  The rest is up to your imagination!!! 

Well, I am off to finally get to it.... nevermind I'd better get serious!  I hope you all have a wonderful Easter break and thanks for stopping by!

Bird House Easter Treats

Happy Easter!!!

I try to do little things for my children's teachers just to remind them how much they are appreciated.  Today I sent the girls to school with some adorable bird houses filled with chocolate eggs inside!  One of the teachers LOVES owls so that was a no brainer and the others I tried to vary slightly as well. 

The birdhouse was cut with the Silhouette Design ID #38481 and was simple to assemble!  From there I embellished with a bird and the rolled flowers from the Artiste Cricut Cartridge and the fence was a Martha Stewart punch.  The owl was assembled with the Owl punch from Stampin Up.  I also added a couple extra 2 1/2 by 2 1/2 square layers of paper to the bottom of the box as well as the roof just to make it a little more sturdy.  I cut up some raffia to put inside like a nest and just added the chocolate eggs!  Most of the time was spent on deciding how to decorate these adorable birdhouses since the assembly took 2 minutes!  Well, that's it for today!  Hope you enjoyed it and have a wonderful weekend!!!!

Crafty hugs!

Thank U Card

HAPPY SPRING Ya'll!!!!  Had a few extra minutes this week and decided to play along with Cardz TV Card Challenge #4!  Always handy to have a "Thank you" card in the stash!

I received my Stampin Up goodies the other day and decided to use some of the new colors, Strawberry Slush and Costal Cabana!!!  So fun!!!  The flowers are from spellbinders here.  The "Thank U' is also from Stampin Up, and the twine and ribbon came from my stash.  That's it!!! Pretty simple huh???  Well I'm off to the next great adventure!

Happy Crafting Friends!!!
