Ahh, Spring!

Yes, it is starting to feel a little bit like Spring here in Connecticut. The grass is getting greener, the crocus' are up and we hit 50 degrees yesterday! Balmy!!!! So, with Spring comes thoughts of Easter, bunnies and birthdays!!

Do you make plain ol' birthday cards or do you make themed cards to go with the time of year the birthday occurs in? I guess I do a little bit of both depending on time. This card however is a quick seasonal birthday card that you can whip up in no time!!!

This was a fun card to make. The sentiment is a recent release and could be used for all kinds of "hoppy" birthdays...bunnies, frogs, little boys, you name it! I stamped the bunny tracks in versamark all over the kraft panel and then I stamped them again in black on white shrink plastic, cut them out and baked them.

Here is a close up shot of the bunny feet:



Aren't they cute?! The scallops were stamped with the scallop frames according the size of the scallop punch. I used the triple teardrop giga scallop circle and the giga scallop oval. The sentiment was colored with markers and I added a few jewels, ribbon, linen thread and some stitching with my machine to finish things off!

I hope this inspires you to Think Spring and get a jump on your Spring birthday cards!!!
