"Happy Easter" - High Hopes Challenge #20

I'm a little late for the High Hopes Challenge #20...but I just had to try my hand at "That Fuzzy Feeling". This fun challenge is brought to you this week by the very talented Jeanne!! Be sure to go to the High Hopes Challenge blog to see the Gorgeous DT work and join in for a chance to win some Fabulous High Hopes stamps.

The Cute High Hopes Bunny I used for this card is called "Posing Bunny" The sentiment is computer generated and SU Itty Bitty Backgrounds on the Wild Wasabi paper.

The bunny is colored with prismacolor pencils (oms) and twinkling h20's.

For the fuzzy feeling I've scribbled on shiny white scribbles on the tail and part under his neck ...and then added white velvet flock. I also used colorful fibres threaded through the holes in the scallops. I've added glitter to the inside of the ears.

The scalloped background, bunny panel and the sentiment are all popped up with foam dots.

Ink - versafine black, bashful blue, bordering blue, old olive, creamy caramel, garden green

Papers - GP white, k&company, wild wasabi, blue bayou

Accessories - brad, flowers, lace velvet flock, fibres, scribbles, scallop punch, glitter, Martha Stewart fern punch.

It has actually been warming up here a little. But I understand snow is on its way. Winter is far from over in this part of the country.

We visited our daughter Trina over the weekend. We had a great time .....did a little shopping and even played some Wii Sports. In fact we even bought one on sale while we were down there. My hubby really likes the golfing.....and I really kicked butt with the boxing ...lol....Lots of fun!!

Thanks for looking everyone!... and for all your Wonderful comments!!!

I love visiting your place of inspiration. This is just absolutely the cutest, 1st thought was awe---how cute, but really its beautiful..

Maria said...

Awww your bunny is so cute. . .love her in lavendar! Hey great use of the fiber. Gosh, I have a ton of those fibers. . .there was a time a few years ago when I used them but they've been sitting in my closet not being used. I have to figure out what to do with them. I like how you incorporated it on your card. Very pretty.

Glad to hear you had fun visiting with your daughter! Hey we have the Wii and we have the golf and boxing too. We also have the Wii fit that I never use! LOL!!

We just received some more snow today but I can't complain...it was pretty mild here last week.
We have a Wii too and my little 3 year old loves to box! He has absolutely no technique but he has too much fun! Isn't it addictive?
