Hopping into easter

Hello, crafting friends!
 
Spring colours are really inspiring me right now even though the weather has Taken A Turn! In response, I put on a large pink jumper and carried on making Easter cards ;)
 

I broke open a new Easter die from The Greetery and fell in love with it! I had stamped, coloured and fussy cut a little rabbit from English Garden by The Craft Consortium and realised that the E of Easter could curl around his little body!


I started by stamping the grass image from Enjoy Life by Stampin' Up (retired) directly onto a card base. There's a little clump of flowers in the set which I inked up with SU water-based markers and added to the grass. Under the grass, I stamped the word Happy , then beneath that, I added a strip of yellow zig zag washi tape. Finally, I carefully glued the word Easter and the bunny in the space left.
 
EDITED TO ADD AN AWARD
This little rabbit was a top 3 pick at Perfectly CAS!

 
CHALLENGES
I'm linking this card up with AAA Cards where Tristan's challenge is Anything CAS with the option to use spring animals; I'm also joining in at Perfectly CAS where we are asked to use up to a third of a card front and the theme this time is Die Cuts; at The Alphabet Challenge Caz has come up with the theme for Z and it's zig zags, so I'm playing along there too; I'm hoping to enable some other crafters with my new Easter die so I'm off to Darnell's NBUS challenge where we share our Never Before Used Schtuff!
 

AND IN OTHER NEWS
Eva and I were snowed on today on our morning walk. I had given Eva her lead to carryy and she got her head down and made for home like a sensible girl, turning every now and again to check that I wasn't slacking. She has become my Personal Trainer! I'm sure I must have worked off all that chocolate by now. Might have to get some more to keep my strength up...

Sending hugs,
