Hoppy Easter

Ohhh, I'm so looking forward to complaining about it being too warm LOL  My toes are like slabs of ice.  I shouldn't complain though, at least the snow where I live is rightly melted, but its still bitterly cold.  In some parts of Northern Ireland there are still awful snowdrifts and roads impassible - the military are helping with air drops to farms.  Unfortunately its lambing season here, so a lot of the animals are really suffering.  Not good. :(

I think this bunny is one of my favourite Paper Smooches stamps, and the alpha set is one of the most useful. I was inspired by the current Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge - I took the main colour theme, fancy edge, and mostly white base; I didn't have any card pale enough for the centre panel, so had to use some kraft stuff.  And the buttons in the pic reminded me that I had this wee button embossing folder in my stash, I think it was maybe one of the first embossing folders I bought and have rarely used since!

Love this card and the cute bunny. I have that button folder, too, but I always have a hard time using those embossing strips. They always seem to leave an imprint on my card (on the edges). I don't see one on your card, though. Do you have a tip?

Hope it warms up for you soon and the poor animals.
