Dream Valley Challenge 5: Easter

Has it really been 2 weeks? I didn't realize it until I opened my dusty notebook containing all of my DT assignments I must complete and challenges I want to complete, and saw that my card for Dream Valley Challenges was due yesterday YIKES! I thought I had one more week!!!!!

Without further ado, here it is! This week, we want to see your Easter creations. Remember, it doesn't have to be a card. You can show off a fancy Easter basket you made, or maybe some crazy 3 dimensional centerpiece for your Easter dinner. Of course, you can always enter your standard card or layout as well :)

This month our sponsor is Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps, which is where I obtained the awesome image I used on my card. I don't often do humorous cards, only because I don't really have a good collection of stamps just yet :)

"Hi my name is Stitchy and I am Co-Owner of Stitchy Bear Stamps...we started this store April 1st, No Fooling haha..I live in upstate New York with my husband and two TEENAGE adults haha, I do say that loosely as they think they run the show here, NOT...
I been creating stamps for a little less than a year now and I am totally addicted to the craft..I started about 4 years ago making digital scraps and I knew there was much more out there, so a friend of mine introduced me to digital stamps...and the rest they say is history...I look forward to seeing all the beautiful creations come through...good luck everyone..stitchy xoxox"

Our lucky winner will receive a $10 voucher to use in their shop :)

I have been trying so hard to use up more of my stash before going nuts ordering stuff with my new small scrappy income, so this features some old-school Provo Craft Scrap Pad goodness. I don't even know what pad it came from, I only remember that's who made it. I used colored pencils to color the image, and some Cotton Candy Stickles for the bunny's tail and ears. I decided yellow Studio G glitter glue was just right for one of the eggs, and finished off the image with some Imagninsce pink gems. Bakers twine twirls along the right side, accented with some flower buttons.

The inside is where the humor comes in. A big thank you to a fellow DT at another site I design for, Marlene: she gave this sentiment out as a freebie and I had to have it :) More colored pencils and Cotton Candy Stickles, and the "Happy Easter" is from the Scenic Route Lyndon Scrap Strip sheet of paper.

So there you have it, a day late and a dollar short, but here it is nonetheless. Hop on over (hahahaha bunny....Easter....hop...hahaha) to Dream Valley Challenges and get your Easter creation in for a chance to win some great digital stamps!
