a Happy Easter bunny...

Good morning everyone and Happy Easter to you all, this year is just flying by isn't it...whhoooosssshhhh and its Easter...I still buy my Daughter, her other half and Phil Easter eggs you know, I just dont seem to be able to get out of the habit...do you still buy your grown up children Easter eggs or is it just me...although they don't complain about it lol. One year when our Daughter was 6 she got an amazing 28 Easter eggs, I think we were still using them for rice crispy buns at Christmas lol...after that we asked people not to buy them for her it just seemed such a waste as she never was a great sweet eater but give her a Sunday roast and stand back lol...my card for today is for our new challenge at Just Magnolia & hAnglar & sTanglar challenge, this week I'm the host and its our special monthly challenge and the theme is Anything Goes, so lets your imagination run riot as long as it has either a hAnglar or Magnolia stamp used on it...I chose this cute Bunny Tilda stamp I bought ages and ages ago, I love this stamp and its fab to colour, I used distress inks and the fantastic papers are from the Glitz 6x6 paper pad Pretty in Pink, I love this pad I bought from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...gorgeous rich pinks toned down with chocolates and greys...lush...I finished with a stamped sentiment, a mixture of different size roses, yes they are roses and not paper cut outs lol...and I added some punched leaves and fronds...the lush sketch is from the Sunday Sketch and Stash challenge and I'm also entering it for the Crafty Cardmakers and Ribbon Carousel challenge...I'm having a crafting chilling day today as I'm all alone for the day, well that's the plan anyway...whatever your up to have a wonderful start to the Easter weekend and whatever your up to have fun

Adorable Mina! and I love the lush gorgeous papers and roses! I know what you mean about the eggs - my son's not so into chocolate so they end up with me...or in me, lol!

Sally said...

Laurel said...

What a wonderful springy project! Such an adorable image! Thanks for playing at RCC.

CraftyLoops said...

Yep, my wee Mammy and Daddy still get us all Easter Eggs, and Im 32!!! But my youngest brother is only 11 so thats my excuse for us older ones getting one still because the moto in our family is, you can't buy one without the other! Thats my excuse and Im sticking to it. Such a cute card Mina. Hope you have a lovely Easter weekend. My wee sister turned 21 today.....boy does that make me feel old, lol. Lee x

Dee said...

Mina - your card is so cute! I am sure it is for someone special. I have 6 adult kids, with wives and husbands and 6 grandkids. My own 6 have always wanted an Easter egg hunt every year and so we continue. They are as anxious to find the eggs as much as the little ones..I don't think they ever grew up, just like their Mom! The little ones get some extras like bubbles, pails and shovels and pin wheels to use outside. It passes the time when we are all together. It all makes Easter fun....and this happens after we go to church to celebrate the true meaning of Easter. I hope your Easter is special too! Happy Easter Mina!
