The Corrosive Challenge #171 - Spring Fling

Happy Easter!  Was the Bunny good to everyone?  He delivered lots of smiles here!  Before we head off to my parents' for Easter dinner I wanted to tell you about the new challenge over at The Corrosive Challenge!  Spring is finally in the air here and that's what this fortnight's theme is all about- SPRING FLING!  Whether it's an Easter card, April showers, lots of flowers, or anything else that says sunshine and Springtime we want to see it!

Our wonderful sponsor is Delicious Doodles and Teri certainly does have some yummy images to chose from in her shop!  She has a fabulous variety- everything from goth to cute and in between!  She was generous enough to provide the team with several images to work with and I selected Away with the Bunnies.  She is offering 4 digis to our winner, but if you need to shop now Teri is even having a special Easter Egg-stravaganza sale featuring 25% off everything in the shop, but hurry- it ends at midnight tonight (her time)!

My card is pretty clean and simple for me.  I selected a sketch from Feeling Sketchy (#52).  I liked the  pretty simplicity of the layout but added my own flair with some embossing on the corner pieces and a Fleur de Lis Nestabilities die cut mat behind my image.   My only embellishments are a few flowers in the corner and some gold Stickles on the fairy's wings.
    

I'll be giving this one to my parents' along with a little gift I made.  I saw this idea for a chocolate bunny in a mason jar on Pinterest and I felt compelled to make some!  It was quick and easy and I learned that there is such a thing as edible Easter grass.  Yes, folks, that's right.  Edible!  I found it at Target.  All you need is one chocolate bunny, a mason jar, robin's eggs candies, the edible grass, and baker's twine or ribbon.  Here is the result:



Kayne and I had lots of Easter fun this week actually!  We went to visit the Easter Bunny, made Peep cupcakes, and colored eggs!




As you can tell, I absolutely love holidays!  And they are so much more special now that I'm a mom!  I am so happy to be sharing traditions from childhood with my small man, creating special memories for us both!  Hop on over to The Corrosive Challenge blog to see what my talented team has created!  And if Spring Fever has struck you too, we'd love to see you play along!  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a lovely day!
