    THESE MADE ME SO HOPPY!!!
    Love those little bunnies, Alex. I just burst into child-like giggles when I look at him. His little eyes peeking up and out. That is the cutest thing ever! Way to take the stuff you have and make them into the stuff we wanna have. These are so creative.

    I’m with you. I’m not an Easter girl… although I did hunt easter eggs at my parents house well into my 20’s. Why? Well, when you’re parents put $20 bills into the eggs you tend to show up for the egg hunt. H AHA HAH! Being 20 and poor makes you hunt Easter eggs. No shame! I still long for the hunt. Although like you.. it’s usually the chocolate that brings me the most joy. I bet your kids have a blast with this holiday. And yes, I officially give you the mother of the year award! You are an awesome mom. Have fun next week. Richie is out too. I hope he can accomplish something MAJOR!

    Hi Alex! beautiful cards! I love them a lot! you have so many ideas and I like how you used a sleeper for fabric and love the FREDERIKA fabric too (I just wrapped a cork board with it); my favourite one is with the bunny and a read umbrella! 🙂 btw, I started laughing when I read the first part of your post; about the Cadbury cream egg homemade recipe; last weekend hubby and I, we tried one; we found it on Youtube, I will post about it soon, the eggs tasted great but they didn’t look great. Let’s just say, they didn’t look like eggs ha!ha! 🙂

    Ha ha, your thoughts on Easter are the equivalent on mine for St. Patty’s Day. I just failed to get inspired in the craft arena. So, I hear ya, sister.

    But can I say, I LOVE these cards…the colors, the textures, the fact that you used fabric on paper. And I’m all about re-using supplies and whittling down what we’ve got before going out and buying more. THAT takes creativity.

    If I celebrated Easter I would definitely be making cards inspired by your designs–all those old baby sleepers!!!
    Anyhow, I’ll be busy eating cardboard crackers (aka: Matza) for Passover. No card making or chocolate egg hunts there….

    Easter… I think Martha Stewart has turned it from a fun, candy-overload, kid-holiday into a bizarre competition for who can make the craziest, most useless decorations. Every year her Easter issue BAFFLES me. Who needs to spend days draining yolks out of eggs and spinning sugar into bunnies?

    Your ideas are better! You should email her!!

    Digging that IKEA fabric! And the raining eggs – brilliant! I am a fan of Easter – just bc it seems to nicely signal the onset of spring…You have inspired me – I don’t have any homemade decorations and no projects on deck but I think I’ll go spelunking in the basement and find my fake egg wreath and a few other decorations…

    You are the craft paper card QUEEN. I love these – the bunny is beyond cute and your leftover fabric is spot on.

    Eh, I’m not a huge fan of Easter either but if there’s chocolate involved, I’m in. 😉

    Way to go, Alex! These are really fun and festive. I love the IKEA fabric ones; the colors are bright and perfect for spring. All the variations are so cute too. You are inspiring me to get to making some cards soon. My valentine’s cards were a bust so maybe something for spring. 🙂

    Haha, I’m cracking up reading your post because I feel the same way about Easter. Although I’m pretty inspired now that I’ve seen your amazing cards. I seriously love all of them! Pinning them immediately for inspiration and to get me into the Easter spirit.

    These are adorable! I kinda figured you didn’t like Easter much when it was threatening to be spring and you said on FB… if I see one bunny post I am unfollowing. That made me laugh and laugh! LOVE it! your humour, not Easter!
