I don't usually get around to making a card on Sundays but I was in the mood today. I really wanted to go for a walk in the park but it was a bit nippy with the wind blowing. I sure enjoyed yesterday. I think it was 70 degrees and sunny. Hubby mowed the lawn in the morning and later in the day, we worked in our back yard. I was trimming dead parts off my ferns, trimmed off the ornamental grasses and the wild clematis on the fence. What fun just to get outside and do something.

I love this bunny and pansies. I thought it would make a nice Easter card. It is colored with Copics.

The card was made for the Featured Stamper challenge on Splitcoaststampers, #370. I cased this card belonging to stamping_mynn.

This is so cute, Brenda! That little bunny is so sweet peeking out from the pansies! It was warm here today but I didn't get outside :0( The inside is clean though.

I see spring on the horizon now with this adorable card. The little bunny is so cute peeking out of the flower pot and such spring-y colors. So cute.
Ok, now that you've done your yard you can come to my house and start on mine! LOL! It does feel wonderful to be outside after a long winter.

I have this stamp too, and I absolutely love how you colored this little wabbit. He's so cute peeking out the pot. It is a perfect Easter card, and thanks for reminding me about this one! (Bonnie reminded me of an SU stamp I have - NBUS). So happy I have you ladies to keep me straight & inspire me. This is a delightful spring card. Well done, you, for the lawn work too. TFS & Hugs
