Spring Festival Fun

As my lord husband and I are still away exploring foreign lands, I have had to inscribe this journal entry and send it back via raven to the Guild Hall. Hopefully it makes it safety so that my fellow crafty travellers may read it. We have continued to explore the Peeled Paint Port, basking in the coastal sun. I do not miss the mounds of snow that I know are still covering the Guild Hall. We were invited today to celebrate the Spring Festival of Eggs in the village of Rabbotus. The furry inhabitants had a rousing egg hunt, dancing and singing, and games for the children. There was an egg painting competition which, given my crafty skills, I couldn’t help but enter.

This Easter card was created for the Just Some Lines reminder about our Bunnies & Chicks challenge that is happening right now. You can use the freebie provided, or your own Just Some Lines bunnies and chicks and enter to win some digis from the Just Some Lines shop.

I started this card by colouring the “Easter Bunny with a Basket” image using Distress Markers and my ever present Hydra brush. I cut the shape for the sentiment using the Art Philosophy cartridge, then stamped it with the coordinating stamp from Close to My Heart in green and added a sentiment from another Close to My Heart set. I also cut the pink corner pieces using the Art Philosophy cartridge and embossed them with my Cuttlebug. You obviously can’t tell in the picture, but the egg background paper is textured; the solid coloured eggs are made of fuzzy velvety material, earning me +193 fuzzatious exp points. To finish the front off, I added some fabric flowers I picked up at the Everything-For-One-Brass-Coin stand at the Market Square.

On the envelope I stamped some flowers using the same colour scheme as the card front to make everything all matchy-match.

This lil creation will hop on into the following challenges:
Divas By Design - Use Metal (used metal brads)

Naturally I blew the bunnies away with my entry in the egg painting contest and ended up winning a hefty prize. We thanked the villagers of Rabbotus for their hospitality and promised to visit again soon. It was now time to start our journey back home to the Guild Hall. I miss my direwolf, Lycan, and can’t wait to snuffle his fuzzy face :)
