Hippty Hoppity Easter Blog Hop!!

Good Morning fellow bunnies.... Welcome to my little rabbit hole on this beautiful Easter Weekend morning... The skies are clear no rain or snow in sight and in here it's nice and cozy.  There is a pot of tea steeping on the stove and a cozy fire in the fireplace to keep away the chill.  Please feel free to take a seat in one of my over stuffed chairs and relax for a bit while you browse my little crafty items.  If you have hopped into my little home first please head back to the first rabbit hole on the list.  Lovely rabbit named Janet who is very crafty and will welcome you into her home.  If you have come from Cathie's House then you are in the right place.. Just follow the trail of carrots and brightly coloured eggs to the next rabbit hole on the list.... Beth I hear has some pretty darn good carrots she is sharing. If you should get lost please head back whence you came and pick up the trail of carrots and brightly coloured eggs once more. Now without further ado here is some lovely chocolate that you will be entered to win as a thank you for hopping with us today.
Now that is some yummy looking chocolate.  Winner will be chosen on Monday. Good Luck everyone and may the Easter Bunny shine his fortune on you this day.  Now for my projects for this hop.  I created one then I got the creative bug in me and decided to work on another.  Well I actually decided to start selling my works on Etsy and was in the creative mood to create more than one project for this.
This little gem was created using Magnolia Ink stamps, Paper Studio Paper  and Core'dinations card stock with added embellishments from my stash.

Graphic 45 Once Upon A Springtime collection, Core'dinations card stock, embellish from my stash and a digital image I purchased.

Stepping it up!

I am a cardmaker.  I started out scrapbooking my newborn 13 years ago and about 3 years or so ago I got the cardmaking bug... I haven't scrapped a layout really since.  Well I have always loved the outside of my cards, but the inside lacked a bit of luster and I never knew quite what to do with the inside.  I didn't want to make the inside plain any longer and was looking for ideas on how to take the from plain to works of art.  Well while browsing various card making sites and blogs and other social media outlets I came across a phenomenal lady.  Her cards outshine anything I have ever seen and she gave me so much inspiration.  The best part... Her inside of her cards was just the idea I was looking for... Bev! If you ever get hours upon hours of time... browse her blog.  Her cards are simply.... STUNNING beyond words.  I want to thank her for inspiring me on how to take the inside of my card and make it look like an extension of the outside.  With that said I have assembled three cards today alone... Well they are not complete as I need to colour the images with my Spectrum Noir markers and then embellish if need be.  When those are done I am taking another step... A rather scary step for me but one that came to me while a friend and I were discussing a video game that my daughter bought and was never returned for credit.. He offered to post it on Ebay for me... With that said... I am going to create cards for him to post on EBay and we will share in the profits.  He can use his money for whatever... Me... Well one can never have enough pretty things to run her hands through and create with :)
