Every holiday has its icons, but who doesn't love the Easter Bunny in all his many forms including this fine sir. Unfortunately he is retired, but I just could not resist pairing him with the jelly bean sentiment! So cute!
Now for some newer bunnies. Taylored Expressions new Skinny Mini Spring Borders features four dies: bunnies, birds, flowers and a chevron pattern. I paired two of the borders with the Easter Wishes banner set, substituting the "Happy" from the TE Happy Birthday Banner die for the "Wishes." Along the bottom of the card is a picket fence festooned with the flowers border, a bunny and a birdhouse.

For this next card I used a variety of dies -- some new, some old -- to create a pretty Easter scene. The new Lattice Frame die from Taylored Expressions is available only through brick-and-mortar stores like The Stamp Act. I used the Easter Wishes Banner again and cut the bunny from felt, dressing him up with a cute little bow.

Here I used the Eventful Border again, this time cutting it apart and nestling the pieces among the "hills" which were cut with the TE Rolling Stitched Clouds dies. The sky was embossed with the TE Cloudy Days.

While you're decorating don't forget the front door! This scene is full of spring colors and icons. Love the polka dot rainboots sitting on the doorstep.

This bunny really lives up to his name: "Cuddle Bunny." I copied a card that Harriett Head (good friend and customer from Las Cruces) designed. Her choice of papers was inspired (they are from Penny Black). I feel like I could reach into the card and hug the soft, cuddly bunny. Thanks Harriett for the inspiration!Cuddle Bunny – Impression Obsession stamp Cuddle Bunny; Copic markers; design inspired by Harriet Head
