Hippity Hoppity!

Hippity Hoppity!
Here Comes Peter Cottontail!
Hi there!
TGIF!  I'm so happy it's Friday today!  I always have
Friday off from work, so I had a chance to play today
in my craft room!  I was so anxious to ink up some
SWEET Stamps that I recently ordered from
Paper Sweeties!  I'm entering this project over at
their challenge, (Paper Sweeties).  They have the
sweetest stamps!  Do go on over to visit to get
inspired for your Easter cards/projects!  You cer-
tainly won't be disappointed!
Here is the design to follow for this month's

I started with  a recycled  gauze box for the base of my
project.  The gals at work help me save boxes, cardboard,
etc. :-)  You never know what might come in handy for
that FUN project!
I covered the gauze box with Echo Park paper.  I used
stamps.  The darling little bunny was colored with SU
colored pencils.  I added pretty clear pink buttons to the
banner.  Several jelly beans were placed in a small bag
and topped with doily and sentiment (Hippity Hoppity).
A couple of chocolate bunnies and bubble gum suckers
were added to finish off the little Easter basket!  Thanks
so much for dropping by today!  Take care and have a
wonderful weekend, hugs!
