Easter is a Time for Sheer Hoppiness!

Coffee of the Day - Coconut Hazelnut

Happy Easter to those of you who celebrate this holiday! :) This has always been one of my most favorite holidays. I love spring, even though it doesn't really come to our area for a while yet. We can have snow into May, and it frequently snows on Easter, but the flowers that peak through are so lovely, aren't they?! It is truly a season of new hope.

I have a card to share with all of you today. I have given this to our neighbors who have the most adorable little girls! They shared with us a few days ago that their oldest is learning to read by sounding out the letter "P" for Palmer. :) we all smiled over that one!

I happily discovered that one of my favorite artists, Lee Holland, has an Etsy store for digital images. If you hurry, you might even catch the big sale that she has going on right now. I was one happy camper, let me tell you! ;)  This cute little bunny hopped right into my shopping cart, along with several other fun images!

Papers are from the Authentique Eastertime, flowers & leaves are from Wild Orchid Crafts, pretty blue ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon, and dies are by Spellbinders. sentiment is from Create with TLC.

vintage buttons, doily, lace trim, and yellow twine and ticket are from my stash. all cs edges have been distressed with either ink or a paper distressing tool. you can't see it well in the photo, but I used a wink of stella clear glitter pen to accent the hop pattern.

what DID show up well is a lovely pet hair from either Palmer or Moon Pie.... oh goodness gracious.... I had already given the card to our neighbors by the time I started editing this picture, so I couldn't go back and retake it. ack! the joys of having 2 pets with black fur who love to play in my craft room with me!!!

I hope all of you enjoy your day! thanks so much for "hopping" by! :)
