Easter Exchange

Over at the Hero Arts Flickr Group, Anita, one of our fabulous hostesses... organised a Spring/Easter exchange.  I got to send the lovely Lisa (aka Moonpie) in Texas.  I had fun doing this card for her
Easter Bunny- HA Group exchange

I have this cute Penny Black stamp and after cutting out a Spellbinders die, I stamped the image and before removing the die, distressed the edge with Shabby Shutters and Stormy Sky inks and then used more Distress inks to colour in the stamped image.    Some PP and a piece of yellow paper punched with a Martha Stewart edge punch and it was ready to go.

And then yesterday, I arrived home to find this beauty in my mailbox.
it was a miserable wet day, and to open this piece of sunshine was wonderful.  Thanks to you Mildred.  I also got a lovely letter too and this looks like becoming a wonderful new friendship.

A big thanks to Anita for organising this.  It is very exciting to receive a beautiful creation in the mail.

Had planned to attend a Stamp Camp this weekend, but due to the numbers it got moved and as I booked late, I didn't get in.... so will have a weekend at home to catch up with housework and some stamping of my own.  Sort of pleased, with having been away last weekend.

thanks for stopping by...
Dawn

That bunny card is so adorable, Dawn! Love the colors! And the card you received from Mildred is so beautiful! We had a very wet and cold day yesterday too. . .spring and warmer temps sure are having a difficult time sticking around. Wish it would decide to just get here and stay!!
