In Bloom!!

I definitely have Spring Fever. It has been in the 50's and sunny here for quite a few days. I have seen some crocuses coming up and the kids are wearing shorts to school! What better says Spring than bunnies. I love to color bunnies and all the papers are bright and colorful so it puts me in a really happy mood. I think some of the cutest bunnies are the High Hope ones. This was a free one from them last year that they sent with my order for waiting quite a while. This is the first time I got to color and use it so it seems like a brand new stamp.

I love this striped DP because it is glittered on some of the stripes, a nice added touch. I finished this card when I got together with friends to stamp and laugh this past weekend. The dotted paper was in my sister's stash and worked perfectly with the dots in the striped DP. Don't you just love when everything goes together effortlessly.

I used some new products on this card that I couldn't resist buying, the glittered brads around the bunny are We R Memory Keepers and the Glitter Buttons are American Craft Elements I found them both at my LSS in Westford, MA. The silver heart charm was from the clearance bin at Michaels, I love digging in there to see what I can find for a steal!

Here are the challenges that this card is for

Sketch and Stash Challenge 30-This was a great sketch challenge and the twist to this challenge is to use new stuff you have couldn't resist having! I am so weak when it comes to new things to play with!

Hand Full of Stamps Challenge #18-"Let it Shine" is the challenge, anything that you think of when you hear the word "SHINE". I think of sparkle like the glittered DP, the glitter brads and buttons, and the silver charm, lots of shine I think!
