Hippity hoppity over to Delightful Challenges

Happy Maundy Thursday!

And the cold and snow goes on......

Our challenge over at Delightful challenges is a spring one but there's no spring around here - we have the tiniest sign of a few crocuses in the garden but I have a feeling the poor things will wish they'd stayed where they were -and there's no chance of us going out to start tidying the garden this Easter holidays - which is something we often do if we get  a nice  bright day over the holiday weekend. 
- I don't care how bright it is - our garden will stay untidy as long as this freezing weather continues!

So spring is remaining firmly indoors and it's as good a reason as any to get crafting

At Digital Delights the theme is 

Hippity Hoppity

that's something with a cute bunny theme, flowers - anything spring

Here's my card for the week made with the cute Easter Bianca

 I just love the cute little girls in the Digital Delights range of stamps and they are often sitting like this one is - I  just sit them on the edge of a circle - like I did with this one
 - that's me life on the edge lol
Don't you just love those ears! - I wanted them to be outside the circle as well and after much faffing with dies (that's a very technical term) finally got them there

I've gone totally spring flower overboard on this one - I think its a hysterical reaction  to the weather but  thought I'd better call a halt to how much was on the front of this card - I think its pretty obvious its an Easter themed card just by looking at it
 - it doesn't need the word Easter anywhere on the front of this card!

But it does need it inside...

So I printed the Hoppy Easter sentiment - available here - super sized and put it inside, I didn't think it needed any more than that though I was tempted to keep on sticking those flowers - I decided to just let the paper do the talking

Our fab sponsor this week is

Crafty Ribbons

and we have a lovely ribbon prize from them so get hippity hoppitying!!!

Anyway - this is what I did......

Circles cut with spellbinders dies
Flowers - fabulous Phlox from Memory box dies
