Hippity Hoppity, Easter's on it's way...

...and I am SO not ready. Holidays always sneak up on me. No matter how many extra choir rehearsals we have, it still doesn't click until a couple of days before. Haha.

I haven't had a chance to sit down and make anything new since last time I posted, but since I had to take my parents and sister to the airport at 0-dark-thirty this morning, I had a couple hours to myself before all the events of today get into full swing. Now how's that for a run-on sentence?

So, today's project (or projectS... i made two...) is for 365 Cards' Day 24 and OCC Challenge.

I was trying to stay away from the usual pastels and bunny rabbits look... I was going for something that resembled a Ukrainian pysanky egg. I think it worked out with all the different Amy Butler papers :-)

Okay, now, I get kind of excited when I figure out stuff like this, so "bear" with me... lol... you'll get it in a second...

I was looking through my craft punches yesterday, just to remind myself what I had, and one of them was turned so that the shape was upside down. All of a sudden, this light bulb appeared over my head and I heard an ethereal "aaahhhhhhhh..."

So basically, this is either a super cute puppy dog...

OR an upside down teddy bear, with a banana in his ear...

Thanks for looking!!

Oh MY! These egg cards are to die for! I love the colors you chose, and they are so elegant and wonderful. I would love my easter to be like this card. AND that bear with a banana in his ear is absolutely hilarious. I think you should go with the dog though... great job using your resources!!
