Cleaning Up for Easter

     Our newest challenge is starting today at QKR Stampede and, as you probably remember, we now have an "Anything Goes" theme each week with an optional twist.  Our option this week is "Easter."

    I found this fun and fabulous QKR image called "Bunny Bath" and added the sentiment "Easter Is" to it.  I just had visions of this being one of those 2-birds-with-1-stone situations where the Easter Bunny decided to take his weekly Saturday night bath and get all the Easter eggs cleaned up for painting while he was in the tub.  :-D

     The image is colored with a combination of ProMarkers and Copics.  I cut it into a square and then layered the die cut, blue frame over it.  That was left over from cutting something else (die from Spellbinders.)  I also cut two dp layers using large, stitched square, dies from Cheery Lynn. Unfortunately, the stitching didn't show up very well against the patterned dp so I used a black pen to enhance the stitching.

     I found the purple satin ribbon in my stash, and then tied a bow, using some narrow, sheer, lavender ribbon.  I added the sentiment and called it good.  It's flat enough to mail and the majority of my Easter cards have to go so9me distance away so they get mailed.

     The weekend is only a few hours away and I hope you've made your list of activities and things you want to do for those two days.  Fun and relaxation should be at the tip of list and anything related to spring cleaning should be well toward the bottom.  Remember, life's short - eat dessert first!   Happ Stamping.  NanaConnie

I think he's getting a bath and having fun at the same time! CUTE card and yep, he's getting ready for the big day.
Love the patterned paper you used for the back and it really makes it stand out since you outlined the stitches in the black. Great card.
Have a good weekend.

That black pen works wonders with your stitching. They really stand out nicely with great definition. He is surely going to be all ready for Easter. Nice paper and ribbon to pull this all together. Have a great weekend.
