It's an Easter Egg Shower!!!


LOL! Today's Catch the Bug Challenge theme is April Showers!! Well, I decided to think "outside the box" on this one and thought I'd use something besides the normal umbrella/rain images. I thought these little Easter Bunnies with their eggs looked like an Easter Egg shower to me, and fits into an April theme as well since Easter is tomorrow! Ok, so maybe I'm crazy but that was my logic for this card.... ROFL!! Hey, but it's SUPER CUTE huh? I LOVE how this card turned out. These are little block images from Bugaboo Stamps and I began by printing each of them on the same setting, so they would all be the exact same size. I colored them with my Copics to match this cute DP from MME Stella & Rose collection and then adhered them to some SU Chocolate Chip. I stitched around the edges and decided the center needed a little something. So I made this little circle phrase in Word Art and punched it out with my circle punch and added a vintage brad in the center. To finish, I added this BEE-YOO-TI-FUL satin ribbon tied in a pretty bubbly bow! Be sure to visit the Catch the Bug Challenge blog and check out all the inspiration from the rest of the DT! If you play along over at CTB, you could win some Bugaboo Stamps images of your choice! Woo-hoo!

Now ain't this a "quinky dink"? Bugaboo Stamps is sponsoring the Catered Crop FTR10 challenge!! Yippee Skippee!! That makes it a double decker challenge for this hen all rolled up into one post! With that said, here's this week's Follow The Recipe #10:
