Easter Smiles

Smiley from
THIS is the REAL reason we celebrate Easter - or as my husband prefers to call it, "Resurrection Sunday"!

I love all of the cute bunnies, chicks, and chocolate that are around this time of year, and crafters are so creative in the projects they come up with!  So to celebrate Spring, I have a bunch of chick and bunny ideas for you.  Some were made by me, some by my stamping friends.

First off I have an adorable "Easter Cottage" that I made with a chickie on the front.  The pattern came from Inkspirations4U Online Classes.  I LOVE their tutorials because they have step-by-step instructions with pictures to figure out how to make each project.  I have gotten so many wonderful ideas and patterns from Inkspirations4U - all I need now is more time to make them!  The roof on this cottage opens easily to reveal what's inside - chocolate eggs, of course!

Next up are some bunny cards made by a couple of my "Judy friends".  For some reason I have a lot of friends named Judy, and at least three of them are very close stamping friends!  So they're my "Judys". 
 Judy S. made this cute card from instructions I had from 
This is another great site for card ideas and more.

This cute punch bunny was made by Judy Haney for a recent swap.  I love the "googlie eyes"!

This jar of jelly beans (the ONLY beans I like, other than cocoa beans!) was given to me by my friend Pam.  She is such a sweetheart - always making up little gifts like this.
 And here is what is on the top of the jar!  Isn't he cute? 

Pam also brought this card to show.  I love this idea!  This is the FRONT of the card:
This is the INSIDE left side of the card:
And this is the saying that she printed off to put on the right inside:
Smiley from So have you had your fill of bunnies yet?  There won't be any chocolate bunnies around here, but we've had our share of chocolate eggs already!  Holidays are awful for my waistline...

I hope you have a blessed Easter.  Until next time...
