Happy Easter to My Nieces

Happy Thursday Peeps!    This is a scheduled post.  

Today I want to share this card that I made for my two nieces for Easter.  I made two identical cards to go along with their Easter baskets (actually a bunny bag for each).  Aside from the usual candy, I filled their bags with girly stuff like glitter nail polish, pretty itty bitty stickers for their nails, activity books, etc.   Sure miss all that fun stuff when our boys for little.   Of course, they got things like Transformer toys, water guns, Whoopee cushions, etc.

Here's Akemi by Sister Stamps introducing Daba to Bunny.  I "designed" her kimono with sakura (cherry blossom) stickers.




Other supplies:  Copics, Spellbinder dies, Distress Ink, branch die by Memory Box, embossing follder by Cuttlebug, egg and butterfly punch by Martha Stewart, grass punch by Viva Las Vegasstamp, sentiment by Studio G, ribbon by Offray, cherry blossom stickers by Mind Wave (got them in Japan), and pearl by Kaiser Craft.
