Bunnies and Birthdays

Good Morning - Only a half a day of school for me and then it's spring break - WoooooHooooo!!!!!
Movies, stamping, reading....carpet cleaning, garage cleaning.....start with the good stuff right???

I did get a chance to get some challenges done after school yesterday. Yipee!!! A couple of weeks ago I came across this cute little "punched" bunny over at Paper Punch Addiction. I knew I wanted to use him so had an example sitting on my desk as a reminder. I took the little stuffed bunny from Sugar Creek Hollow and put him in one of the picture frames thinking I could use it somehow....saw Mercy's sketch from Lord Have Mercy - and knew right away that I wanted the little punched bunny to be looking at his friends portrait.....so it all came together.

My second card has been in the makings for a couple of days -
I definitely seem to be challenged by the Card Positioning Systems Challenges!!!! That's a good thing!
I looked through my stamps to see which images I had that were big enough to flow off of the layered section and decided on this cupcake from "Crazy for Cupcakes". I still had the liquid applique out from my smores the other day - so knew I'd use that - but decided to see what would happen if I sprinkled glitter onto the applique before I heat/puffed it up. It worked - so viola!!! My spritzer tool has been getting a good work out lately
too.
This week Corrosive Challenge wants paper piecing on your creations - so I pieced the cupcake holder on this one. I'd like to do a different card with more piecing because it's something I like to do.
And the colours for this are from Colour Chef.

Well, I'm posting this before I head to school because the DD was on the computer last night and I didn't want to stay up until she went to bed!!!!

Hope you have a thoroughly terrific Thursday - Thanks for dropping by!
