Let's Craft and Create Challenge #157: Easter...

Is it really March? Is Spring truly going to come to Minnesota? When you live in the northern U.S., Spring is always a much-anticipated season. It marks the end of parkas, boots, mittens and scarves worn over the top of heavy sweaters and long pants. I think we all lose about 5 pounds, just by taking off our winter wear.

March is also the month for Let's Craft and Create to celebrate Easter with our papercraft creations. I've made a simple Easter card to share along with all of the other inspiring projects on the LC&C blog. Please do click on the link I've provided and take a peek at them.

 I have a sweet little stamp and die set that includes this banner (with sentiment) and the flowers you see on it. I used another die to cut out my cute little bunny that looks like one of the popular "Peeps" marshmallows.

My card base, banner and bunny were cut out of some pale pink cardstock that has a subtle pattern to it.

I cut my blossoms from some scraps of paper in my stash and used Nuvo Drops for the centers. In this photo, you can see how I've popped some of them up on foam squares to add a little dimension.

My banner has also been popped up on foam tape.

I thought my little bunny needed a tail, so in looking through my stash, I found some clear enamel dots that were just the right size. My sister had given them to me some time ago, and I think they worked perfectly as bunny tails!

The shadow in this photo shows how my bunny has also been popped up on foam tape.

On the inside of my card, I used some more of the DSP that was adhered to the front, and I added a couple more of those die-cut flowers. My sentiment was computer-generated.

That's it for my contribution to this month's Easter challenge. How about entering one of your Easter/Spring-themed cards into the challenge? We'd love to see what you have created, and there's a prize for the winner, too.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

Love the hanging banner and it's sentiment. That little bunny does look like a "peeps". The acrylic gem tail makes him stand out. I just sent my box of Easter cards to Send A Smile 4 Kids. I forgot to take pictures of them so I'll have to get out the Easter supplies and make another for the challenge.

Love your Easter Card - especially the "peeps" bunny in the corner. And bunny tails - well that makes him an official bunny. I have just started on mine, I make the kids cutesy ones and then the adults more EASTER meaning ones.
The only way I could loose 5 pounds is to take off all my clothes then I would still have at least 10 more pounds to go. LOL

Awww such a sweet card Cheryl, love your little bunny and the floral banner you created is so pretty!
I'm looking forward to Spring and warmer weather too - my office is chilly so it will be nice to be at work and not have every heater on, and my fleece and a big cosy scarf round my knees!
