Egg surprise

Ah, what a couple of cute bunnies here -- this digital image comes from Sherri Baldy, and has been colored with a combination of prismas and regular colored pencils.  I've tucked a couple lacy doilies behind my image, then added a bow, using a hatched birdie button for the center.   I've used a die cut fence along the bottom, then added the die cut foliage, topped with some flowers.   A couple butterflies added to flit around and be spring-y, and voila, this creation is finished and ready to be sent off for Easter . . . somewhere.

Easter eggstravaganza!

I think in this instance, the bunny has over-achieved  decorating eggs - but, his efforts will not go unrewarded, looking at the size of the carrot, waiting for him !!  This cutie-patootie image comes from Lacy Sunshine, and I've colored it with both prismas and regular colored pencils.  If you look close, you'll see I chose jelly bean background paper.  I've added ribbon along the bottom, which has carrots on it, and those are candi-dots in the upper region.   I've tucked a doily behind the flowers, and used flower-shaped brads for my flower centers, and added fern (done with a punch) for a bit of foliage.  And there you have it, all set to be sent off for Easter -- won't be long now.

Make mine a triple !!

Well, I really don't think there's a special "season" on ice cream -- it's an all-around treat !!  This Whipper Snapper bear likes his in a waffle cone from the looks of it.   A pretty simple design, with layered papers, a punched corner and enamel dots.

Celebration time!

This birthday girl comes from Art by MiRan, which I've colored with prismas and the rest just followed from there for birthday fun.  The sentiment was done with a die cut, and I added the party hat and cupcake 3-D embellishments, along with a couple lacy doilies tucked behind my image.

Hanging out together

Friends seem to hang together, and these cuties from Whimsy are taking "hanging out" to a new level - haha.   As you can see, I've layered, added filigree die cuts, and flowers to the mix.   The largest flower at the bottom corner has a button for its center, that I crocheted around to resemble a flower - it's more tedious than I  thought and my fingers don't seem to be as nimble, so after making a few, I gave up on the notion - oh well, it was a good thought at the time.

Coming up daisies

When it comes to hedgehogs, I have to admit that Penny Black has THE cutest ones!     If you look close at my background paper, you'll see turtles right off the bat, but be assured, there are hedgehogs there, too.  I added die cut grass, and then some 3-D daisies, along with a couple die cut butterflies that I doubled up to give them a more dimensional look, especially if you "fluff up" the wings.

A wee bit Irish

This Irish bear is a stamp from Whipper Snapper that I've colored with prismas, and his shamrock bouquet was colored with a glittery gel pen.   I wanted to keep the main focus on his cuteness, so just layered background papers and added a sparkly foam shamrock, and voila, he's doing his part in wishing you all a happy St Patrick's day -- no matter if you're a wee bit Irish or not!
