Sassy Cheryl's Challenge #52 --- Spring and Easter!

Even though we are still seeing snow and cold weather around the country, I choose to trust the ground hog's prediction that we will have an early spring!  Over at Sassy Cheryl's this week they are doing their part to bring in spring, too!  Even though spring could be early, Easter is very late in April this year, the 24th, actually.  That gives me more time to make Easter cards, and there are so many beautiful and adorable images out there for this season.  Instead of coloring eggs, I will be coloring images!!

Sassy Cheryl has been releasing more images than I could ever keep up with, but I'll sure give it a try!  Here is just one of them:

I don't think I have ever seen a happier bunny!  I pulled out some very fun double-sided dp by Heidi Grace for this card. This pattern comes in a variety of color schemes, also, so you might see the yummy cupcakes in yellows or greens or reds or true blues.  For this I picked up the pink and brown for the flowers so that they didn't overwhelm the brilliant blue.   

The dancing bunny is colored with Copics and I tried a technique of Marianne's at I Like Markers to make the scattered clouds.  It was so easy!

This sketch caught my eye over at Phindy's Place Challenge Blog, so I am also submitting this card in her challenge.  It's a new blog to me, but I did see some good friends over there, too. 

Well, the weekend is upon us and I hope you all have a great one!  Thanks for stopping by!
