A Beary Happy Easter

Happy Easter everyone!

Although I have not been doing a lot of card making lately, I did find the inspiration to make some Easter cards for friends and loved ones.   I decided to post one of them and throw my hat in a few challenges.

This card is for my dear friend Ines, who hopefully will not see this post until after receiving the card.

The image is stamped from an adorable Forever Friends Easter set.  I just love these little bears.  They always bring a smile to my face.  This particular stamp is one of my favorites.  Anyway, The coloring is done with Flex markers with a bit of Papermania Metallic markers for the easter egg.

The layers are cut with Grand Nesties, and the purple layer was done with pre-embossed paper (Hunkydory if I remember correctly).

The base card is actually a fabric card from a Create and Craft set.  Although the card has a birthday sentiment on the front, I thought the colors and the pattern would work well with this image, so I just covered it with the layers.

In my personal card making, I don't tend to use tons of embellishments, but I thought the butterflies and flowers would be a nice compliment for the image.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges...

Card Makin Mamas - Easter Time
Stampin' for the Weekend - Ready Teddy Go
Hanna and Friends - Easter / Spring
My Mum's Craft Shop  - Easter Creations / Animals
The Sisterhood of Crafters - Easter
Scrapalicious USA - Easter

Okay, well I have an easter dinner to sort out.  As I recently started weight watchers, this is slightly more challenging than usual.

I hope you all are having a wonderful Easter weekend and that the Easter Bunny brought you some of your favorite things.  I got some lovely Clarity Stamps (although they have not yet arrived, the Easter Bunny told me they are on their way.  YAY!!)

Take care and please feel free to leave a comment and visit again soon.
