Have fun getting crafty and we can't wait to see what you're working on! 

I have some projects to share with you today. It's been a long a dreary Winter here in Massachusetts with just about 8 feet of snow in just about 4 weeks so I was really feeling the need for Spring in my crafting.
I started with a white card base and I used my Long & Skinny Rectangles to add stripes of this fabulous paper from American Crafts to the whole front. Then I cut a white oval using Stitched Mats: Ovals and added my bunny and scene and at first I was going to add this directly to my card front and then I realized it would be a whole lot cooler to cut out an oval from the center, frame the opening and add my focal panel to the inside of the card peeking through - so that's what I did!!

I nested two Stitched Mats: Ovals together before cutting and that's what has created this neat frame!

Other dies used with this project were Bunnies & Bows Die Set, Border Builders Die Set and Small Sunshine Die.

Once I finished the card project I had this fabulous striped oval that really looked like a decorated egg and I couldn't just toss it away so I made it a tag on this wrapped gift! This is just an oval from our Stitched Mats: Ovals but I think the stripe across the bottom makes it look like an egg shape so I went with it! I punched a hole and tied it to my gift but not before I added "Mom" to my tag using our Mixed & Stitched Alphabet Die Set. The paper pad and pencils were found at the brand new Target that just opened 5 mins from my house - YAHOOOOOO!!!!! Both were found in the dollar bins!!

Here's a better close up for you. I love that I was able to create two projects essentially by just making one!

Ok, now it's your turn!!!  You can visit the Design Team and see their inspiration for this challenge by clicking on their cards as they appear in the linky below.

Have fun. Get crafty and LINK UP to be in on the PRIZE!!!!
