Spring Greetings

First day of Spring here in the Northern Hemisphere - yippee, best day of the year :)

I have a card that celebrates Spring...


I fell in love with this stamp called Cottontail Wishes from Taylored Expressions latest release.  I'm a sucker for bunnies around this time of year.


I've coloured him with Prism pencils and used the accompanying die.  

This card is a little bit different for me...


HE SWINGS!

The design of the stamp absolutely screamed to be swinging so that is what I did... its not perfect by any means as I had to cut and line everything up by eye. 

Being a single parent for many years, I never afforded myself the luxury of chasing the latest dies so even now if I can make do... I will and it makes you feel cock-a-hoop when it works.

I rather like my imperfect aperture complete with an adorable bunny, I wouldn't mind sitting there with him!
