A few Easter cards..

I absolutely LOVE this baby bunny Tilda Maggie..isn't she sooo cute! She didn't make it 10 minutes out of the package before getting all inked up, lol!   I made up these Easter cards with her..and even though it killed me,..I didn't add any embellishments because they are going postal and lumpy cards with my buttons and big flowers have a hard time making their destination in ample time and I need these to be speedy, ROFL!  I'm usually all about the embellishments~ I LOVE embellishments!  Flowers, buttons, pins, ribbons..ahhhh! Its very difficult for me to make a card without using them so these cards look very plain to me..but I hope the recipients will enjoy them just the same :0)  For my DP's I have used digi papers from The Shabby Shoppe  printed to just the right size and cut out.  I have found this to be a wonderful cure for my paper hoarding habit, haha!  I have a terrible time using the last sheet of my favorite patterns..which has turned into an entire shelf of favorite patterns!  So while I'm trying to kick the habit, I found these beautiful digi papers that I can use over and over again..don't laugh, I know you have the same disease as I, lol!  

Hope everyone has a wonderful Easter weekend!  My boys have spring break next week, but I am working all but 2 days..sooo...hubby and I cheated and took them out of school for a couple days.  We went to Gatlinburg/ Pigeon Forge on Sunday and just returned this evening.  We had a wonderful time!  We took the boys to MagiQuest and I think we had just as much fun as they did running around with our little wands trying to find clues and secret passage ways and hidden treasures, lol!  We played mini golf, laser challenge and mirror maze.  Mirror maze  was the most fun we've had in ages...we were stuck in there FOREVER trying to find our way out, it was hilarious!  And my little Jeremy almost knocked himself out trying to run to me when he got lost and ran smack into a mirror (which was my reflection) and I couldn't figure out how to get to him when he was laid out on the floor..that wasn't so hilarious, lol...but despite the small crisis..we had a blast!      

Happy Easter, where ever you are!
