Come and Celebrate with Me!

This totally sneaked up on me - all of a sudden I jumped my 200 followers barrier! I have been hovering in the high 190ies with some fluctuations and then - 202!!! I am speechless and elated! But I did not empty all those bottles on my celebration card (below) as you might have guessed :)

But first I want to greet my new comers in the order of joining:

Becca Cruger from The Damsel of Distress
Dana Joy from Got Joy Creations
Shawana Standish from The Grand Stampede 
Hazel Kinvig-Paul from My Card Attic
Ela G from Ela est là

 So happy you joined! Perhaps you'll stay on - I'll try to make it worthwhile for you!
Easter is over, but its still April and I choose this as my welcome picture for you:

It is part of an installation by Michael Bishop and it is out side the Foothills Art Center in Golden, Colorado. I like those kind of grumpy looking bunnies....perhaps they lost some Easter eggs...

So glad you joined and so happy that in those 2 1/2 years of my blog's existence so many people stuck around with me for such a long time!

And now my card, of course....

Got inspired by Lexi Daly form Papertrey, who did this "White on white die cuts with a pop of color" for Make it Monday. So once again I pulled out this cute wine die cut set from Papertrey and amde this card - I thinkits self-explanatory, so I won't bore you with the details. Colored with Copics. The tiny sentiment is also by Papertrey - Mixed Messages.

So now for the celebration part - you'll find out by clicking HERE

Fabulous bunny photo; we have bunnies in Canmore (not hares, bunnies) and although they're not particularly popular, they're so darn cute! The babies are arriving...adorable! Your card: delightful. Nothing like a glass (or bottle *grin*) of red wine to add sparkle to a day!

Easter Egg and Bunny

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey. And here are bigger photos from this set: Linking up with Creative with Stamps - Easter The Paper Players - die cutting Die Cut Divas - animals Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with dies

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
