If I make no other Easter cards this year, I have to at least make one to send to my son. I tried my best to avoid getting this too frilly, but it’s not easy to hold back the flowers and ribbons and pretty what nots on an Easter card. I did select this image specifically for him. Hey, I did my best. It’s a digi from QKR Stampede called Tired Bunny. Poor thing. He must be exhausted. Only one little bunny to hide all those eggs? Tsk tsk!
Inside is a cute little Impression Obsession sentiment. Boy, what he has to put up with from his mom. He loves it, though. Seriously. Long ago he asked me why I made cards for everyone else, but not for him. Well, it was because I didn’t have stamps I thought would make good cards for him, and I didn’t think he cared much, anyway. I was wrong. What mattered most was that I would spend the time making a card especially for him. It mattered a lot. Something to remember when you think maybe your cards aren’t appreciated by the guys in your life.
I printed on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White and colored with Copic markers. I pulled out three different very old grass stamps to create the hillside. I was hoping the embossed background would resemble a basket weave. It’s a large Cuttlebug folder called Cane Back Chair.
Since the QKR Challenge this week is Easter, I’ll go ahead and link this up – #83 Easter. I’ve been having such fun with their images!
This will be mailed in a bubble pack with a large chocolate bunny. We’ll see Isaac at Easter, but it’s nice to get happy mail, isn’t it? Have a good day!
