Spring & High Hopes Challenge #23



Well, here in Calgary,Canada it really doesn't feel much like Spring. The 2 feet of snow we got on Sunday really makes it feel like January....you get the picture! 

Anyways, I made this card for The High Hopes challenge #23-"use buttons!" 
Not a problem for me....I add buttons to almost every card I make. ;O) 
Kelly sent me a few of her new High Hopes images and I gotta tell you...I LOVE this bunny!
My first instinct was to color him in white...like most easter bunnies... but I started shading and went a bit over board and so he became a brown bunny! :O) I still love him. 

The paper is from my Nana's Nursery stack from Michael's. 
Flowers are prima
Buttons are My Mind's Eye
Ric Rac ribbon is CTMH 
The Spring sentiment is CTMH

Thanks for looking~Have a Great Day!
I'm off to clean my house....my cleaning lady is coming today!
