Easter Bunny Invites You .........

Tuesdays are A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge days and we have a fun challenge this week ~ create any shaped card as long as its not a square or rectangle. I really had to think outside the box for this one and created a purse invitation using my Sizzix die. I turned it into an Easter Egg Hunt invitation for my girls from the Easter Bunny. Hope you like it. Checkout the rest of the DT's wonderful creation HERE for some yummy inspiration.

Our wonderful sponsor this week is Mia from Aifactory who has very kindly offered our winner a $15 gift certificate. So join in the fun for a chance to win.
Easter Purse Invit

I'm entering this purse card invitation into the following challenges:

  1. The Pink Elephant ~ Pastels
  2. Simon Says - Easter or Spring
  3. Secret Crafter - Pink, Green & Flowers
  4. Crafty Cardmakers - Spring into Spring
  5. Copic Creations - Feather Blending (did not turn out as anticipated for her hair so will need to keep practicing)

Here's a look at the inside of the invitation, where I've used the "Hey Chickie" stamp by Wags 'n Whiskers. Isn't she just the sweetest. My youngest just loves little chickies. In Canada, Phebe from The Townscrapper sells a wonderful selection of Wags stamps and the gorgeous papers I used on today's project. Whatever she doesn't have on hand can be ordered for you as well. Oh some wonderful news ~ Wags 'n Whiskers will release new images on April 2 and they will have a blog hop with sneak peeks starting on March 31 HERE. Grab their banner located on my sidebar, link it back to the Wags Blog and post it on your blog for a chance to win the whole new release ~ woohoo!

Easter Purse Invite Inside

Here's a close-up of "Hey Chickie" and don't mind the date you see on the invite. Sunday is actually April 4 - oops. Well, I think the kiddies will be more excited about receiving the invite than looking too closely at the date - I hope. The Copics I used to colour the sweet image are:

  1. Skin: E000, E00, E11 & R20
  2. Hair: E50, E31, E33, E35, E47 & E59
  3. Dress, Shoes & Bow: R81, R83 & R85
  4. Chickie: Y04, Y17, Y21 & Y32

Have a great day. Hugs,
