Fresh Brewed Designs, Honey Bunny Easter Card!

Hello and Happy Wednesday!
I hope that all of you are well!
I certainly have SPRING FEVER over here!
It's been raining a lot so the 20 inches of snow we got on Monday 
is all melting away!  

Today I want to share an Easter Card that I made using
Fresh Brewed Designs

Isn't she adorable?
Couldn't you just scoop her up and give
her a big hug?
I have to apologize for being a little too 
liberal with the crystal effects that I used 
to glue the flowers!  I made a bit of a mess
and then had to keep adding flowers to cover it up!
colored with copic markers and paper pieced with scrap dp.
DP is Recollections
The pink stones are Recollections
The pretty butterfly is K&Company
The flowers and lace are from Wild Orchid Crafts

Today is my wonderful husbands birthday!
I can't express enough how very blessed I have
been to have such a loving and caring husband.
He works nights so I am going to bake a cake for him
with the children here and we will sing to him and 
have some yummy cake before he leaves for work
this afternoon.
We will be having a family party to celebrate his birthday
along with our grandson's 3rd birthday in a little over a week!
I'm so proud that my little grandson is so sweet
that he is excited about sharing his party with his Papa!
Yikes!  I need to make them cards!
Well, I can be sure to find the perfect stamps
right here at Fresh Brewed Designs!

Please pop on over to our

Then I hope that all of you can join us
for our three day 
Rubber Stamp release Blog Hop!

Thank you for visiting!
I hope that you have a wonderful day!

Fussy and Fancy Flowers Challenge!

Hello everybody!
I am being buried in snow over here!
What was I thinking, when I was posting
about birds singing and Spring in the air just
two days ago?
Well, one thing is for sure......
I certainly wasn't watching my local weather forecast!

I don't care if it is a Winter Wonderland out there,
I made a lovely Spring card
embellished with lots of pretty flowers
to share with all of you today!
I actually made this card along with my last
card when I was listening to the birds singing!  ;-)

We have a brand new challenge at
You guessed it!
The challenge this fortnight is

colored with copic markers.
I made the dots on her dress with liquid pearls
and used crystal effects on her eyes, nose and flower.
The large piece of dp is Recollections Floral Foliage
and the smaller piece is from my scraps.
Most of the flowers that I usedand the 
pink heart doily are from Wild Orchid Crafts
the dried flowers are from my mother! She is the best!
I used three different lace trims from my stash!

Let me just say that all of you are in for a 
lovely floral treat when you 
pop on over to our 
to see what my very talented DT friends have created
for your inspiration.
I hope that you can join in on the fun!

Thank you for visiting!
I hope that your having lovely weather
wherever you are!  LOL!
Have a wonderful day!
