Peachy Keen. This week the challenge is 3D Candy Containers.
I saw a version of these last year (I can't remember where so if anyone knows please let me know so I can give credit where it's deserved) and decided to make my own. I created a cut file in CCR using the bunny head from Baby Steps. I welded the head to a rectangle and some ovals to the bottom for the feet from George and Basic Shapes. I stamped the faces with Peachy Keen's Wide Eyes and Bushy Tailed face stamps and colored the eyes with a Copic marker. I also added chalk to the cheeks and used a black pen for the wiskers. For the feet, I hand drew in the circles and colored them in with a Copic marker. To finish I punched a hole, threaded the sucker stick through the hole, rolled the paper around the sucker, and secured it to the bottom with tacky tape. You also can't see from the pictures, but they also have tails! I cut the end of a Q-tip off and glued them to the butt's! HEE HEE!
Well I hope you all like my sucker bunnies and have a wonderful weekend!
I have had a couple of questions on how I created these bunnies so I am adding a photo of the mat from CCR. Maybe someday I will figure out how to share my files! LOL!

I made an easel card using Once Upon A Princess for the shape and mat. I embossed the mat with the Textile Cuttlebug folder and did a gray stitching line around the outside front. The lamb's were cut from Paper Doll Dress Up and I inked the edges and used a black pen for the details. The cross was cut from Indie Art and I swagged a ribbon with bows behind it. The sentiment was printed from my computer and was cut using Once Upon A Princess. I also added a gray stitching line around the it. I added bows to the sides and did a white stitching line around the inside mat.
I am going to enter this into Fantabulous Cricut's challenge this week which is "Out Like A Lamb" use a gentle animal in your project such as a lamb, puppy, kitten, etc.
I hope you all like my card and thanks for looking. Have a great day!

The bunny was cut from Paper Doll Dress Up and I stamped the face with a Peachy Keen Wide Eyed and Bushy Tailed face stamp. The grass I cut by hand and the the Happy Easter was cut from Robots.

Peachy Keen's Just Card's Faux Stitching challenge. I had so much fun making this card and I just LOVE how cute it is. Then again, anything with a PK face is cute to me! LOL!
I used my Imagine and Loris Garden for all the colored paper in this card. The bunny was cut from Simply Charmed and I hid the entire face to just make it a plain bunny. I stamped the face with a Peachy Keen Wide Eyed and Bushy Tailed face stamp and did a faux stitching line around him. I also used colored pencils for the highlights on the carrot. The sun was cut from Smiley Cards and I stamped the face with a Peachy Keen Happy Lashes face and added a faux stitching line around him as well. The grass and fence were cut from Paper Doll Dress Up and I hand punched the flower. I used a black and white pen for the centers on the flowers and did a faux stitching line around the entire card as well as the sentiment tag. The sentiment is from Whimsical Designs Everyday Sentiments.
I hope you all like my card and thanks for looking! Have a great Sunday!

Whimsical Wednesday challenge. Stephanie had decided to take some well deserved time off and will no longer be hosting challenges. If you're like me, this is one of the first challenge's that I found when I first started blogging and played in too. I know that it will be missed greatly by a lot of you. Stephanie has been the most wonderful person to DT for and I will miss this very much. I also just want to say THANK YOU STEPHANIE for being such a wonderful friend and the awesome stamps you provided us with.You went above and beyond what most do and I want to let you know that I greatly appreciated it. XOXOXO
So now on to the last challenge....
It's time for a new Whimsical Wednesday Challenge. This time the challenge is "Celebrate Spring". Create any card or project to celebrate spring. This can be a spring image, colors, you decide how you celebrate spring.
I made this pretty card with the colors of spring in mind and bird's chirping. That's one of my favorite things about spring, waking up to the birds chirping.
My card is fairly simple, just a lot of layers. I cut all the layers and rounded some of the corners with a corner punch and inked all the edges. I made the banner in the center by cutting it by hand and the scallop center mat was cut from Cricut Craft Room Basics. I used my sewing machine and sewed around the blue mat and printed and cut the bird from the Imagine Lori's Garden cart. To finish I added a ribbon that I made using a brad center and stamped the sentiment which is from Whimsical Designs Whimsical Fun Vol. 1 stamp set.
I hope you all will play along this week and please don't forget to check out what the rest of the amazing DT has created! Have a great day and I can't wait to see what you will create!

The shell and nest were also cut from CAC. I embossed the shell with the Seeing Spots Cuttlebug Folder and inked the edges of the nest and did some pen work on it.

Hello everyone! Here is a super cute and fun bag that I made for Peachy Keen's Anything Goes challenge this week. I am always in need of small gift bags, so this will be perfect for my stash. Can you tell that I am DYING for summer by the colors I am using? LOL!
I started by cutting the bag from Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More at 12 inches on my 12 X 24 mat. I cut it with my Gypsy so that's how I was able to get it so big. I have to admit that this is my very FIRST time using the 12 X 24 inch mat. I love how big this bag turned out and might be using the big mat a lot more!
I then cut the front layers by using pattern paper and the negative from the first bag cut as a template where to place my pattern paper. After that was cut, I hand trimmed all the pieces 1/4 inch smaller and glued them onto the bag. I cut the cherries from Hello Kitty Greeting's and stamped the faces with Peachy Keen's Cornie's Faces. The tag was cut from Winter Frolic and I attached it to the bag with some decorative fiber. To finish I added a strip of lace to the bottom of the bag, added a ribbon handle, and added a layered flower to the center flap with a brad. I also added a velcro dot to the flap to close the bag and the sentiment was stamped from Whimsical Designs Whimsical Fun Vol. 1.
I just love how this bag turned out! Thanks for looking and have a great night!

I printed and cut this card using my Imagine and CCR. The patterns and colors are from the Imagine Blossom cart. This is my new FAVORITE way to create cards! One sheet of white cardstock, one time cutting, and that's it!
The scallop circle and mats were cut using Cricut Craft Room Basics and I stamped the white inner piece with a stamp from Heart Elements Nestability stamp set. The bird and flowered branch was cut from Straight From The Nest and I stamped the face with a Peachy Keen Cornies face stamp. For the branch I cut 2 and trimmed down the one side to fit around the mat. I also added a rectangle piece to the bottom one to extend it out the width of the card. I colored the centers of the flowers with a white pen and used hole punches for the berries. The butterfly was cut from Indie Art and I embossed the background with Stylized Flowers Cuttlebug folder. To finish I stamped the sentiment which is from Whimsical Designs Whimsical Fun Vol. 1.

Die Cuttin Diva's. These stamps are from StampingScrapping. They are designed to fit your Nestabilities Dies. I have never seen anything like this before and I have to say they are pretty neat. Each set of stamps works with certain dies. I used the Heart Elements set for the outer circle and the heart flourishes for around the sentiment. The background is embossed with the Sizzix Flowers Vine folder and I inked white over the raised images. The center is all die's from the Nestibilities Lacey Circles set and I stamped the sentiment which is from Whimsical Designs Whimsical Fun Vol. 1 set. To finish I added a ribbon and bow with a jeweled center. I am going to enter this into the following challenges:
