Day 91, Thursday, April 1 & Day 92, Friday, April 2

This is my MCPT challenge card for the month of April. I used the Happy Hopper stamp, Eggsellant. I cut the bunnies out after I colored them. I used Accent Essentials for the background and colored it with my blue pencil and added some doodling. I cut the lavender oval frame from George. I used My Community for the fence and grass (behind the bunnies). The flowers are Prima's and I used the threading water punch on the white inside. This style of card is an easel and the directions to create it are on
I made these boxes from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More. I cut them as big as I could with the Expression. I used acetate for the window, as I filled the boxes with Easter candy. The stamps were $1 stamps from Michael's. I used the scallop circle, 1" circle and 3/4" circle punches for the tag.
This card is for the Chirpin' Chicks card swap. I can't remember which month it is for. We got our "assignment" sheet and I have created all the cards through the month of July. I used Mickey Font for the "ticket" shape, Plantin Schoolbook for the letters, except the "@" and that is from Cuttin' Up. The "you" is from Graphically Speaking. I used brads, paper clips, ribbon and Tim Holtz tiny attacher to staple the "k". Of course, I had to do some doodling and since I ran out of "notebook" paper I finished a few of them with "corkboard" paper.
I made this tag for Peyton's Easter Basket. I used Fabulous Finds to cut the tag, Doodlecharms for the bunny border and Stone Script for "Peyton".
I needed a few baby cards...two of which I already knew if they were boys or girls. I used New Arrival to cut "little one", Storybook to cut the white background, Cricut Sampler to cut the oneies. I cuttlebugged the white with swiss dots folder and used a Fiskars texture plate for the blue/pink background.

Inside of the baby card. New Arrival for the feet and Mini Monograms for the charm tag.
