Happy Easter!

Hello there!  Did you enjoy your weekend?  Mine was spent relaxing, choosing a color scheme to paint our house and lots of stamping!  One of the projects I created was a CASE of a card that I saw on Pinterest.  This little Easter Lamb is absolutely adorable!  I can't think of anyone who wouldn't love to receive this lil cutie!

This card was also my submission for the Inking Everything Color Challenge posted this week for Becky Robert's team members.  Each week we either have a sketch challenge or a color challenge.  This is the first week I've played in a long time!

Monday Montage #64

Hello there and welcome back for the bi-weekly Monday Montage blog hop.  We're glad you joined us!
WOW!  It's been forever since I posted here.  It's been a crazy past few months....mostly with my father-in-law.  He was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer over 7 years ago and within the past year or so- we were told that the cancer had spread to his bones.  Sadly- he has lost his fight and passed away on 2/26.  Slowly but surely- things will get back in order.  So- if you have enjoyed my blog in the past- stick around!  Things are about to get busy!  I have TONS of stuff to share!

My post tonight is probably the cutest little treat I've ever made.  Well....CASED.  My fabulous upline Becky Roberts shared these with her team and I couldn't wait to create some of my own.  In the process of creating these- I ran into a few little snafu's.  First of all- the punch fairy has hidden my Large Oval Punch.  After looking for it for literally over an hour- I decided to look through my tools to see what else I could use.  Then- I didn't have any Whisper White Bakers Twine....OH MY!

Thankfully I was able to find some alternative items and make it work!  The little bunny is a miniature Lindt Chocolate Bunny.  He is adorable all by himself but when combined with the super cute little treat holder he's off the charts!

This is just the beginning of these bunny treats.  I've decided to make one for each of my co-workers.  I know they will be a HUGE hit!
