Hippity Hoppity Easter's On It's Way Blog Hop!

Yay!!  Happy Weekend!  Welcome to our blog hop celebrating all things Easter!  If you're coming from Theresa's blog, you're on the right bunny trail!  See the full list below if you're totally lost (like I seem to be quite often as I get older!  Ha ha!)

We have some awesome blog candy for those of you who choose to comment and follow each blog along the way. (and if you scroll down, you might just find some extra candy hidden!)

This first little cutie is the Blue Moon Creation Crafting Station 6x8 Peach Polymer Hoppy Spring 2014 stamp set.  You can find out more info about it HERE.

The second decadent piece of blog candy is a Close to My Heart Chocolate Affair stamp set donated by Janet Royer.

Now, on to my Easter project!  I made this card with my cute little grandson in mind.   I love that when I create something for him, I'm thinking about him the whole time!  It's like a big hug, even though he lives 2,000 miles away.

I started with a print and cut file from the Silhouette store called "Some Bunny Loves You," and then cut a circle in black on the Silhouette for a mat.  I used a Darice embossing folder (I can't remember the name of it at the moment, but if you would REALLY like to know, just ask and I'll find it!) to dry-emboss the purple background.

And then, when you start to open up the card, there's a surprise inside!!

The inside is a second cut from the Silhouette store called "Card Pop Up Easter."  I just LOVE this!!!

The flower box is 3D and has all sorts of cute tulips growing in it.  I inked the edges of pretty much everything with Tim Holtz Distress Inks and then added some highlights and sparkle with a white Gelly Roll Pen and a Stardust Pen.  Even the little butterflies are flying right off of the page!   I carefully used my Bic Mark-Its to highlight the butterflies.

I have my own blog candy to give away today to a follower who has a US or Canadian mailing address!  It's  the All Postal stamp set by Mark's Finest Papers with a retail value of $17.99!  Just use the Rafflecopter widget below to enter.

Have a WONDERFUL Easter!!

Happy Scrapping! ~Amy E
