High Hopes Challenge - Hoppy Easter

Wow, can you believe it is Sunday already? Time for a new High Hopes challenge :-) My talented friend Lacey has a great seasonal challenge called Hoppy Easter.

Lacey would like you to get creating with anything that hops. If you don't have any HH Bunnies or the fun bunny ears used by some of our creative Divas below we would love to see your Spring themed cards or paper projects. As you can see I went with the Spring option!

The random winner of this challenge will receive the below cute stamp - Busy Mama. How sweet are those little bunny babies!

Ok... so now a little about my card. I have used the sweet stamp Sm. Easter Chickadee. I had lots of fun yesterday playing with my new Copic Ciao's. I love them... they just don't love me yet! lol I have lots of practicing ahead so will be honest and say I am not too happy with my colouring here! I couldn't get her cheeks right so did go over with my Prisma pencil after to give her a rosy glow! I can't wait to play more!

Most of the papers are from the Cosmo Cricket Material girl 6x6" paper pad apart from the nestie label which was some left over K&Company. Other products used : Martha Stewart Doily Lace punch, some gorgeous organza ribbon, new pins and also some pretty Prima mini roses. I also added a little stickles sparkle to her bow. My cute little bow was created using the bow-easy and I have more of these arriving in stock again this week. I have to say I am so impressed with this little tool and you may notice that I don't very often put bows on my cards... so you will be seeing lots more in future!

I have used the fabulous sketch from Sketch Saturday (love their sketches!) which is sponsored by Bunny Zoe's Crafts this week. Be sure to pop on over, grab the sketch and join in! You have the chance to win the Kimmie stamp Angry Ballerina and a selection of pins!

Yet another party today, this time the girls cousin Millie. Danni and I are off to town in a mo as I have promised her a new frock! Little Danni is such a girlie girl unlike Zoe who love her legging and t-shirts!

Have a wonderful Sunday!
