Day 30 - 30 Day Coloring Challenge

Hello Friends! It's day THIRTY! Whooo hooo! I made it. I have to admit that sometimes it was a real challenge getting my coloring done for the day. I'm glad I stuck with it, though. I made a few cards and I have a lot of images waiting to be used on cards and that is going to make quick work of adding cards to my stash. I'm pleased that I was able to participate. And I say a big THANK YOU! to Kathy for hosting.

Here is my cast of characters.

Since Easter is just days away, I wanted to color these fluffy bunnies again and make some treat holders.  I printed my images onto smooth white card stock and colored them with Copic markers. I just did simple coloring on my bunny. Leaving him white made it easy to complete the project quickly. After using a circle punch to cut them out, I dusted on Broken China and Shabby Shutters Distress ink, to create a little sky and ground.

Some of you have seen these before, because I made some a few years ago and they were a big hit. They are sour cream containers that I created to look like carrots! I used patterned papers to make the carrots and stems. Quick and easy!  They can be filled with your favorite Easter treats and tucked into an Easter basket or used as table favors.

The design of these is not my own. You can find instructions for these all over the Internet. I am sharing the video that I viewed, just in case you would like to make some carrots, too.

That's all I have for you today. Thank you so much for stopping by! I appreciate the visit.
