For my Little Bunny Rabbit!

Those of you who have kids, or even dogs, do you have "pet names" for them?  I have lots of lovey little names for my baby girl Sophie, among them are Soap Suds (obvious...I think), Bean Bag (takes too long to explain...) and the standard Sweet Pea as well as lots of others.  A friend of mine always calls her my Little Bunny Rabbit. :)  I think that is so cute!  And very appropriate for this spring post, don't you think!

This is an Easter card with a bunny that I made for My Bunny.  We are really looking forward to Easter this year as we'll be spending it with Grandma for the first time.  Can't wait to make cookies, die and search for eggs and everything else with my Mom!  We'll be in a vacation rental in La Conner and maybe if we are lucky the tulips will be in bloom, but if not, I know the Daffodils are out!!!  If you haven't seen La Conner's tulips and you live in the Pacific NW, you have to check it out!  Beautiful!  Here is a little taste for you, enjoy!

I had so much fun using this Happy Easter Lawn Fawn set, and the Pink Lemonade DP and Lemon lawn trimmings, all of which I won as blog candy!!! :)  I just love that little bunny, the chick and the eggs and jelly beans.  I went so far as to make my own little basket, which I am pretty proud of.  I did this by brushing Kraft CS with a Chocolate Chip ink and weaving and gluing the little strips of paper together.  Then I embossed it with my SU! that actually looks like wicker. The handle is made from the same hop lines that I used under the bunny, I just did it in brown to match.  The little extras are the little cloud and the button sun with the lawn trimmings as well as the banner with the salutation which also has Lemon lawn trimmings and some faux stitching.  Finally, you can see the faux stitching at the bottom as well.

As always, while I am at making cards, I love to enter them in challenges.  So this one will go into the Lawnscaping Challenge which is all about stitching as well as the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog which is all about spring/Easter and finally the Ribbon Carousel Challenge #78- Spring is in the air!

So what "pet" or lovey names do you call your kiddo or pet and why? Also, what fun plans do you have ffor Easter or spring?  I hope you enjoy the coming weeks!
