Bunnies, Bunnies...

...Bunnies everywhere!
"Happy Easter"
to you!
I hope you like "Bunnies"!?
It seams I went a little overboard on
Mr. Cottontail this Easter season, sorry,
I just couldn't help myself!
Well are you ready to take a hop down
my Bunny trail?

I found these adorable Hoppers on Pinterest
and just had to try one or two.
 Pattern from "The Little Fabric Blog".
 Some of these bright colored bunnies
 will adorn my Easter baskets this year. 
 The crochet flowers came from my little stash
of embellishments
I usually make and use for my cards.

Next, my shabby chic bunny box.
 This used to be an old bunny shaped cardboard candy box
my Mamma sent me years ago from Germany.
Sadly the candy is long gone but I held on to the box because
of it's unique shape.
Decoupaged with old book pages, in french of course 
and more crochet flowers. 
I have been playing with different crochet flower patterns lately to find out
which will work best for cards and other projects. 
 Most of the flowers you can find on my Pinterest Board
"Crochet Flowers".
Butterfly's and flower stems are Stampin'Up! Thinlits. 
"Spring time in Paris" maybe I need to put that on
my Bucket list!!!
Stamp "I Love Paris" from Stampendous!
I hope you are not tired of bunnies yet?
Because there is one more to go!
even the "Easter Card" sports a Bunny this year! 
 This adorable bunny is one of the "Happy Hoppers" from
The purple egg is layered.
 Some rhinestones for some sparkle.
 I went a little wild on the colors this year but
I think it came together fairly well. 

Hurray, you made it to the end of this crazy bunny adventure!
Thank you so much for stopping in 
and taking a hop down the Bunny Trail with me!

I would like to wish you and your family 
"Happy Easter"
baskets full of Easter eggs,
especially the chocolate fertility!

Losing an Hour!

Hello and
happy spring forward
Sunday to you all!
I sure like the idea of having more daylight hours but
it will take me awhile getting use to the time change.
It always gives me the feeling I'm  running behind!
I know, whats new, I'm always running behind
so another hour shouldn't make a big difference.

I recently discovered my small addiction to 
"Art Impressions" stamps.
Yes, they are a bit different from my usual vintage
inspired cards, but they are tons of fun.
Well, here is the Birthday I made for my
sweet girlfriend, who you guessed it right
"Loves Wine"!
 Hampton Art "Art Impressions".
 Stamps work well with mix and match pattern 
and bright colored paper.
Everything goes, just let your imagination go wild. 
 Love using paper scraps for a bit more beSaz!
 Some rhinestones for the extra sparkle!
 "Wine gets better with age...
we get better with wine!" --
sentiment on the inside of the card.
Are you ready to go a little wild with "Art Impressions"?

 Spring has sprung in my flower boxes...
 and front porch. 
The big yellow egg is lit at night, ready for Easter!

Last but not least, 
I'm still playing with the knitted bracelets.
This beauty is adorned with two vintage buttons
I found at an Antique market.
 Loving the sparkle!

Thank you so much for stopping by
I hope you liked what you seen 
and come back often!
Wishing you a wonderful and creative week!
