Hoppy Easter!

Mornin' hens!  I thought I'd pop in today and show you what I whipped up for Easter! I recently saw this idea on the Lawn Fawn blog HERE and couldn't resist putting my own spin on this idea and mass producing some Easter cards for my family.  I just LOVE how they turned out!  So instead of using bags, I used these colorful notecards from LawnFawn.  I added the chevron die cut behind the tag to resemble a decorated Easter egg and embossed the sentiment with some white embossing powder. 

  I colored the bunny images from Mama Elephant with my new Inktense watercolor pencils.  I have to admit, these pencils and my distress markers have renewed my interest in watercoloring!!  I think I'm addicted!  I just love the "painted look" this technique gives. The grass border was done using my Martha Stewart border punch.  I placed a taller grass under the vellum and shorter grass on top for some depth.  Oh, and I also used my new Marvy snow marker for the bunny's tails.  Seriously, I could watch that stuff puff up over and over.  It never gets old to me.  Finally, I tied some satin ribbon to each tag and rounded the bottom corners of each card. 

Now, continuing with the Easter egg roll I was on, (tee-hee!) I also wanted to make a few treat bags for my co-workers.  I enjoy making little things for them.  These were pretty simple to do and I bet you'll never guess where I got the pattern?  Yup, the Silhouette on line store.  Actually, I think I downloaded this last year and never got around to making them.  Anyhoo, I cut four bunnies from both Kraft and white cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo.  Don't ya just love those teeth??  {{{snort!}}}  I put little bags of Hershey's chocolate eggs inside.  Shhhhh, I only had a few!  For the closure, I threaded the baker's twine up through the flap from the panel underneath.  Then I tied the twine in a bow and cut the bow loops so they resemble whiskers.  Aren't they the CUTEST?  

Ok, that's it for me today.  I hope you all have a blessed Easter Sunday and I'll see ya back in the hen house real soon.  {{{hen hugs}}
