Hello, how is your day going?  I sure hope it has been a good one!

Here's my latest card share.
I've used one of Krista Smith's Saturated Canary digi images.
She's called "Priscilla Pie," awwwwww, cute name, huh?

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?

Ok, now for all the little details:
