Hoppin' by to say...

Happy Easter!!!

I had an opportunity to take a class last Saturday
and had a blast making this card, thanks to the teacher,
Tammie, and the other gals who attended.

As one who 
rarely uses stamps,
this was both a challenge AND a learning experience!
First of all, I rarely color animals, so that was new,
then toss in using stamps and I felt a bit awkward, but
I had fun and it all turned out fine. LOL

This adorable stamp image is from a set called "Peanut Bunny"
and is a Crafty Clear Stamp from Our Craft Lounge.
You can find it at Memories of Time.
(Please tell Michelle that Marilou sent you!)

Here's the inside:

Here's a side view:

The last photo is, hopefully, close enough that you can see
all the extra embellishing I did when making my card.

See the white sparkly fluff on Peanut Bunny's ears and tail?

See her finger and toenails?  Cute, huh?
