It's Spring for Paper Players #287
Easter Bunny for AAACards and a little more blog candy

Easter Bunny for Match The Sketch and blog candy announcement

Hi Everyone.   Happy Monday.

I have a card to share with you that I made for Match the Sketch.   I had such fun with this little bunny that I made two entirely different cards with him and I'm sharing one of those cards with you tonight - and the other one tomorrow. 

Here's the sketch from the talented team across at Match the Sketch

I began with a piece of Soft Sky card stock that I ran through my clouds embossing folder.  The clouds weren't standing out quite as much as I wanted to, so I went around them with a grey copic marker a couple of times, just to add a little shadow.  That made them pop just enough and I could then get around to the other fun parts of my card
I printed the bunny onto X-press it card stock and colored him with my Copic markers.  I then fussy cut around him and he was ready to mount  All that was left was to find some fun papers to go underneath him, and to add the sentiment.
Here's my finished card:
Bluebunny (1 of 1)
On a personal note:
Well, I had a wonderful day yesterday and thank you to all of you who left me messages wishing me a wonderful birthday, they were very much appreciated!  I was also lucky to get some cards from my crafting buddies and I will be sharing those fabulous creations with you later this week.
As it was my birthday - and this is technically my birthday week - I thought it would be a good time to share a little blog candy.  I'll be doing a couple of posts this week where you will be able to have a chance to win some stamping goodies.
First blog candy up for grabs is this fabulous Fun Stamper's Journey stamp set called MOON WALKER

This is such a cool set for masculine cards and is wonderful for creating scenes.  I used it to create cards for Hospitalized Kids.  It was fun to color and I love the way the FSJ stamps are deep etched rubber, which works so well for these detailed stamps.
So... what do you have to do to be in the running for this fabulous brand new Fun Stampers Journey set?
Easy peezy..... just leave a comment on this post and tell me what your favorite photograph is from my site.  So... any photograph that has appeared on my site - ever:-)  It would be great if you told us why you liked that particular photo  but you don't have to.  Just tell us which one and add the link so that everyone else can check it out.  If you can't find the link - just give us the date :-)
I'll leave this particular blog candy running through Thursday 3/25 and will a random winner from the photo choices.  
I'll be back tomorrow with my new card.  In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.

I didn't read email yesterday so I didn't even know it was your birthday. Hope it was wonderful. And how could I ever tell you which of your pictures I like best? I like all of them and look forward to them. Always a little disappointed when there isn't a picture. I like Wee Inklings for Cassidy's pictures and I like your site for the bird pictures. Well, there, I've chosen. I think I like the bird pictures best, though I also like the deer and the cats.

Well, I love your bunny. The clouds really make the perfect backdrop for the bunny and the colorful strips of soft colors make for a great card!

What a cute bunny card. Back in November you had a photo of a Red Bellied Woodpecker that caught my eye, so this is my pick, I also loved your pic of the Downy Woodpeckers, we have them visit our bird bath and suet feeder, like you I love them, such interesting birds.

You always have so many beautiful nature related photos on your blog, that it is hard to choose. But, I keep going back to your January, 2016 photos and immediately go to the 2 red cardinals in the snow photos. These are both beautiful photos and wonderful reminders spring is not too far away.

Hi Jaydee! Your bunny card is so soft and pretty. I love the soft blue clouds and cute little bunny. Adorable!

I enjoy all your photos but a few stand out. The cardinal in the snow taken this winter was striking with his bright red feathers looking so bold against the whisper white snow. It's the photo where you only see him and the snow pile, no trees or background. The other photos I've really enjoyed are from your Nova Scotia holiday. I was intrigued because I've only been as north as Acadia National Park in Maine and it was fun to see the similarities in the landscape and the beauty of the area. I'm hoping to make it to Nova Scotia someday. All of your nature photos always warm my heart; the frogs on the deck, the hummers in the Summer, the wildflowers, deer, cranes, groundhogs, and beautiful birds at the feeder or tree stump. You have a true gift to capture nature's beauty and I'm grateful you share that with all of us! I think I forgot to mention your furry friends inside, those are a welcome sight too. ; )


Hallo Jaydee,
vielen Dank für Deine Teilnahme bei "Match the Sketch".
Deine Karte ist so goldig :-)

Liebe Grüße aus "Sabines-Kreativecke"

Cardinal in the snow is my favorite. When we have snow there is a cardinal that visits. Just beautiful. Thanks for the chance of the blog candy.

Love all your photos especially of the birds and your sweet kitties. But, one that just popped out at me was the goldfinch from August of last year.
Belated Happy Birthday...we share a birthday week as mine was yesterday.
