Hugs for Easter

     I've fallen behind on getting Easter cards done for my grandkids (most of whom are of an age not to really mind) and being sick for the last week didn't help but I did get a couple done this weekend.

    Let me share the Easter card most recently completed.

     The image is from House Mouse and I used two different polychromos pencils on the individual hairs of the fur and did the rest with ProMarkers.  I cut the image and the pink frame with stitched dies from Memory Box.  The purple frame was cut with a die from Sizzix and then I layered all the die cuts together,

     The dp rectangle was cut with a die from QuicKutz and was just a scrap I found in my stash. I think it may have been a paper from DCWV originally.  The sentiment was printed, hand cut, and inked on the edges.  I used one of my hand sewn bows, dyed pink with a ProMarker, and to which I added a button and some twine.
