Pink Kiwi Kisses!!

Happy Hump Day everyone! We're halfway thru the week and the snow outside is melting thankfully! I am sick with a very nasty sinus infection and I'm hoping the antibiotics cure it soon--yuck, messing with my energy level big-time! My daughter is sick with a stomach virus too--I am sooo tired of sickness! Everyone seems to be suffering from something---this is why we need spring to come SOON (then I'll have allergy issues but I can deal w/ that, hee hee)! So sending out big cyber {{HUGZ}} and Chicken Soup to everyone who is sick right now!! :o)

Today is Whatchadoin' Wednesday Challenge over at the Storage Units, Ink & More blog! Today's challenge was to make your cards/projects "spring-y"---yeah, that was a real arm-twister for me, lol! We all know that I'm prayin' for Spring already! **EDITED--Apparently I can't read and mixed up the WW challenge today--it was supposed to be "Bling It On" and I royally messed up! LOL**

I decided to use the new stamp set "You're Somebunny Special" for both of my projects. These also were made for yesterday's Color Challenge #208 on SCS (kiwi kiss, passion pink, chocolate chip)--not a huge fan of Kiwi Kiss (note, my pack of this cs was still unopened until yesterday, lol) but luckily my Basic Grey "Sultry" dp fit the color profile perfectly! I've had this idea for awhile to make some Easter Egg notecards with my Oval Nestabilities and yesterday I finally took the opportunity to make some!

I used my Oval Nestabilities to make the cards and shapes--easy, peasy! Isn't this bunny the cutest--I left him white so he really popped against the dark colors!

For my second card I colored up the Easter Basket from the "You're Somebunny Special" set, colored and cut out the eggs and glued them on to the backside. I also added some hot pink Flower Soft for the basket filler--love that stuff! Paper piercing around the oval finished it off! I love how they turned out, so perfect for Easter & how fun to give these out! Make sure and stop by the SUINK blog to see the rest of the DT's delightful Spring projects today!

My next project uses the same dp pack from Basic Grey and I also made this for the SCS Color Challenge (208)! This new angel set from H&M Stamps called "Angelic Moments" is just beautiful--they remind me of those Willow Angels of which I have a few. They're colored w/ Copics and I colored some soft pink clouds for them to stand on---lots of diamond stickles on their wings and clouds! This ribbon by American Crafts tied all the colors together perfectly!

Hope you enjoyed all my projects today! If your mojo is runnin' low or you need some inspiration, SCS has challenges everyday that are always fun!!
