Happy Easter! Kit Cat Sunday

Happy Easter! I hope you all have had a joyous Sunday reflecting on the many blessings God gives us every day! And right on schedule, it also happens to be a Kit Cat Sunday!

The warm-hearted Lorie was our hostess this month, and she sent the most wonderful kit filled with springtime colors and embellishments and super sweet Easter Basket Bunny from Peachy Keen Stamps. And she didn't just send the images, but the stamp as well! Doesn't he just have the cutest face?

My layout was based on this week's FFF sketch over at The Greeting Farm. (I know - a PK image with a TGF sketch? I'm sure some purists are shuddering. LOL!) Those who know Lorie know she loves her bling, and she didn't disappoint by including some *fabulous* green glittery cardstock! Oooo, I would love to have a pair of strappy summer sandals just like it!

She also sent iridescent rhinestones, which will see some love very soon, but for some reason the buttons called out to me, so I tied them with the ribbon and the embroidery floss in the kit. A quick Nestie tag with a computer generated sentiment, and there ya have it!

Be sure to stop over at the other Kittens' blogs - Catherine, Lorie, Jeanette, Kelly, & Michelle - to see their super-sweet creations with Lorie's kit!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a stamptacular day!

WOWEEE!! I'm so loving this, Susan! I think you chose a fantastic sketch to showcase that paper! There were so many great choices with that paper. It was hard to decide, and the BLING? Oh yes, you know I loves me some bling!! You did a beautiful job with your entire card, from the layout, to your Copic handiwork, to the wonderful way you showcased those buttons and papers. I love it from top to bottom!! Thanks for all the sweetness in your post. I hope you girls had fun with it, and I can't wait to see what's up next! The excitement builds...

Chica, this is super cute! I love the two-tone coloring on the basket - such a great touch! You used the glittery green goodness so nicely (reminds me of the cellophane grass for the Easter baskets) and look at all those yummy buttons!
Easter ((((((((HUGS))))))))),
