Hippity Hoppity Easter's On Its Way! - Blog Hop April 7 & 8th


Happy Easter everybody and welcome to Day 1 of the Hippity Hoppity Blog Hop by Lisa of HoneyBearz Designs!  You should have arrived here from Cindy, but if you just happened upon my blog today be sure to go back and start at the beginning, as this is a 'HOP' after all! ;0)  We are so happy you could join us today!

I'm super egg-cited to show you some of the Easter projects I have been working on.  Everyone that knows me, knows how much I love a great holiday just for the excuse to make some more cards or crafts.  I've been piddling around with digis as you all know and I bought some of the awesome limited digis from Simply Betty Stamps.  For those of you that do not know Betty, she can use all the support she can get right now, as she is struggling with a teenage son diagnosed with and fighting cancer.  OMGosh, can you even imagine?  I know how expensive cancer treatments are and every sale we help her with goes towards her son's treatment.  Ladies, this is a great way to help out a wonderful person with an amazing heart and amazing talent.  I am a HUGE fan of Betty's and I'm sure you will be too!  I ask that you go to her store and check out all of her amazing designs.  A lot of these are limited edition digis and once they're gone, they may not come back!  Get 'em while you can & while you're there, sign up for her newsletter and check out her blog/Facebook Fan Page.  It's the best way to keep up with the sales and knowing what's coming out and going back into the "vault".  I just happened upon there and was soooooooo lucky as the digi I used for today's project was only available for two or three days!!!  I couldn't resist!

I hope you will enjoy this project as much as I did, making it! ;)  I used Zig pens and colored pencils, notice she is holding a chocolate bunny with his ears bitten off! ;)  Click the pic for an enlarged picture.  I also used a white gelly roller for some highlights. :)

For this card I welded two oval shapes together with my Sure Cuts A Lot 2.0 software and used a scalloped oval from Clear Dollar Stamps or Clearly I Stamp.  I used a deep purple cardstock from my stash for the card background and the scallop, along with background paper from Stampin' Up (if you visit Jill, please let her know Amy Jo sent you).  I used pearls from Creative Charms.  They're having a HUGE sale right now!  I inked the papers with my Cat's Eye ink in Dark Brown.

Thanks so much for joining us today, sweet friends and be sure to head over to Shelly Lynn - KC Croppers as she is the next stop on this bunny hop!  If you get lost, I have posted the entire lineup below.
