Hoppy Easter

Time to dig out those shorts and flip flops, girls and fire up the old BBQ - apparently we are having a mini heatwave this weekend.  I have the hot tub turned up and a nice bottle of Sauvignon in the fridge!!

Here's a card I made for Easter. I don't send Easter cards, but I have one of those plastic menu stands, that a card slides into and I keep it on my mantelpiece, with whichever card suits the season/occasion.

 Challenges - 
Do You Stack Up? - Follow that yellow brick road.  These digi papers are all in a shade called 'sunshine' - hope that's yellow enough!
CES - Monochromatic
Digi Stamp Boutique - April Competition

Stamp - Digi Stamp Boutique, Spring Hoppy, coloured with Copics, with a little cotton ball, for the bunny's tail.
Digi Papers - Pink Petticoat, Pinstripes and Apples, in Sunshine
Bunting - Molly Blooms stamp (free in a magazine), paper pieced and attached with foam pads.
Happy Easter sentiment made on my comp.

This is too cute: I love the idea with the menu stand...may have to "borrow" that one, lol. We're (finally) going out of summer here (in Western Australia) though it's still forecast 34c for tomorrow, it's really gone on long enough now, you can have some ;-) its funny to note too that we use our spa more in the winter so it's coming up spa season for us too. TFS, Dee
