Wishful Kitties


These two kitties sure wish they had floppy ears and a fluffy tail like the Easter Bunny. Since they look so much like him now, he just has to leave some yummy eggs and maybe a catnip carrot or two for an Easter morning surprise!

As much as the bunnies are loved here in the Attic, I couldn't let Easter slip by without making at least one card that included a bunny. This was such a fun card to design and came together much like I had envisioned. It was created with the Newton's Nook stamp sets, "Bunny Hop" and "Newton's Curious Christmas." The animals were colored with Distress Markers and water. The Christmas kitty temporarily came down from his rooftop watching Santa to take part in some Easter fun. Stardust Stickles was added to the bunny ear headbands and some sparkle pom poms (ones from the craft store that were too small for our kitty girls to play with) were attached  for the tails. A portion was cut from the back side of the pom poms to make them flat, a hint I read on Lucy's Cards. Of course, each of our girls got a new sparkle ball while I had them out. The animals were added to a hill cut with Lawn Fawn's Stitched Hillside Borders and the scene was framed with a combination of frames from WPlus9 and Lil Inker Designs. The "Carrot" dies from Taylored Expressions were added to the bow and the framed piece was adhered to cardstock embossed with Taylored Expressions "Lattice" folder.

The inside was finished with the cut away sections from the frame and hillside, along with another bunny and some eggs that were coated with a bit of Wink of Stella. The sentiment was included with the "Bunny Hop" stamp set.

I am joining Challenge #19 at Newton's Nook to use watercolor this month.

Hope your Easter was filled with blessings and wishing you a wonderful, happy Spring.
