Loppy Ears

Monday, April 14, 2014

Happy Monday!

It's gorgeous here in the Triangle today!  The azaleas and flowers are in full bloom, the trees are blooming and the pollen dust is settling on EVERYTHING!  Local docs are saying this is one of the worst allergy seasons in a long time.  I can certainly vouch for that!  The windows and windowsills all have a nice light green film on them too, which makes opening the windows for fresh air impossible right now.  At least the rain tomorrow will wash it away, providing brief relief as it will only be replaced by more pollen the next day. Got to love spring in North Carolina!  

So it's a good day to get some spring cleaning done indoors.  We are finishing up the repainting of our bedroom and I will get some craft time too.

Mondays are always great craft days, 
especially since Mondays mean 
a new challenge over at 

The Pink Elephant Challenge!

The Pink Elephant Challenge #246

Theme:  Easter

Here's my inspiration card:

STAMPS: Bunny Digital Image (Meljen's Digis). Subway art sentiment (Taylored Expressions).
PAPER: White card base. Mint green and coral cardstock.  DP (may be Mary Engelbreit but have had it so long I'm not sure).
INK: Copics and Blick markers.
EXTRAS: Corner punch (EK Success); White doily; lavender ribbon; wooden button; enamel dots; leaf die (Taylored Expressions). 

I thought this little loppy eared bunny at Meljen's Designs was absolutely adorable.  So I colored him with Copics and fussy cut him.  The background paper I've had for forever it seems.  It looks like Mary Engelbreit design but I don't think it is but I couldn't tell you what it is otherwise.  lol

The bunny had a flower on his head but I decided to make a flower like the ones in the paper.  I cut a small circle and a couple leaves from a leaf die and added the peach enamel dot.

Pink Elephant Blessings!
