Are YOU thinking Spring too?!  I am, but I don’t think it’s working very well with the snow, cold and ice we’ve been getting! LOL!  So I will stay warm inside and bring my thoughts of Spring to my craft room!

I am using this really sweet digital image from Whimsy Stamps called Think Spring Bunnies by Crissy Armstrong.  It was previously released as a rubber stamp, but now it’s available in digital format!  I have printed out this image and used the following Copic Markers for coloring:

Here’s a closer view of the colored image.  I have also used a white gel pen in the bunny’s tails as well as the spotted bunny’s cheeks.  I also took a Wink of Stella clear glitter brush pen to go over the butterfly and the flying bug’s wings.

It was so fun to color these furry bunny butts!! 🙂

I’ve used some of the digital papers released last month called Oh Boy…really loving the ginghams in this set!  So I’ve cut out both these papers along with some solid yellow papers (from same set) and the colored bunny strip with the Whimsy Stamps Hand Stitched Nested Rectangles dies.  I also took a strip of gray colored cardstock and used an older border die from Whimsy Stamps to create the scalloped edge.

These were all layered onto a white A2 sized top folding card base.  I wrapped some twine along the edge and tied it in a bow and then lastly I’ve added some yellow crystals from Pretty Pink Posh randomly over the card.

Really hop(e) you’ve enjoyed my card today and please check out the Cute Card Thursday challenge blog to see what the rest of the design team has come up with!  Thanks so much for dropping in!!

  4. We’re even cold out here in California, Vicki, but this adorable card should help us think warm even if Spring really hasn’t arrived yet. I love the image and the gingham paper is marvelous! Fab coloring, my friend. I’m spending today catching up on all I’ve missed while moving. You’ve been really busy, my friend. Great job on the Turner Syndrome blog hop. Sorry I had to flake out on it but the move meant everything was packed away and there was little time for crafting. Now that I’m moved, the unpacking and organizing begins and I wish I could focus on just the craft room but family duties call, too. Still, it’s great to be able to visit my fav blogs again and review all that was posted in my absence. Please forgive that I didn’t leave individual comments. 😀
