Cute Bunny Hard At Work...Happy Easter Card and M5D Releases

Are you ready for Easter yet?  Thank goodness it is a little later this year, because our weather still wants to hang on to winter and snow.  I can't believe it is the last day of March and we are still walking out into a snowy day.  Well, I hope it won't be too much longer before our warm weather is here to stay.
I chose this cute bunny for my sample today.  This is one of many new releases from McMahon Five Designs today.  If you are in search of some really cute digis for spring, you will love this week's release.





Now, onto the new releases for the week:

Tastefully Simple (altered) Easter Basket M5D

Well, I am not even going to talk about the weather, because maybe if I ignore it, it will just go away and let spring come back.  So, let's just get to the M5D releases today.  I really love Easter and all the soft, pastel and delicate, springy colors that go with it.  Memories of fancy dresses, bonnets and white shoes for church, baskets, bunnies, eggs and candy for after church.  I have had this Tastefully Simple drink bucket laying around for months just waiting for me to make something out of it, and I have to tell you that my hubby really enjoyed teasing me about creating something for Easter out of a drink bucket.  The way I see it is if I could recycle something and help save the earth by re-using, then God would be happy about that, right?   Besides, once it was finished, there is no way that you could tell that it used to be a drink bucket.  I guess you could give this to a child to collect eggs in or fill with candy and goodies for Easter morning or even use it as a gift basket, but I am displaying mine on my mantle filled with some pretty springy flowers and decorations.   I hope you like it.  Have any of you done something like this for Easter or another occasion?



Below are some of the other new M5D releases for this week.

Images of Spring

I was looking at these beautiful pictures of some of our flowers from last year, and they made me smile and appreciate the arrival of Spring.  I am really looking forward to the warm weather staying for awhile and can't wait for the earth to be renewed with all of God's beauty once again. 






Have a wonderful Sunday!

Happy St. Patrick's Day OR Happy Easter..M5D Release day

First of all, I want to wish everyone a Happy St. Patrick's Day!!  I love this day and didn't want to pass up the chance to say.. Top of the mornin' to ya....AND the rest of the day to meself..tee hee...
Well, I do not have a St. Patrick's Day card to share with you, because ...  ready or not, I have an Easter card to share.  It will be here before you know it, so I wanted to get a card in before it passes us by.  I had a tough time with this card.  I have had a huge lack of mojo lately, and not alot of time to let my creative juices flow, so I am struggling with getting some projects done.  Hope you like it nonetheless.  There are plenty of great images being released this week over at the McMahon Five Designs.  There is a nice selection of digital paper for Easter and spring too.  You won't want to miss it.
