  7. Your card is so cute, what a sweet bunny!

  8. Mary, I just love how soft and sweet this card is. I keep seeing this stamp set and I have been telling myself I don’t need it, but your card is making me second guess that. The pops of Daffodil Delight ad just the perfect touches!

  9. Shannon Hokanson

    The daffodil and slate combo is so perfect. What a pretty spring card. I like your use of the rhinestone for thy e tail it goes so well with the other colors. I would have opted for a pearl instead, but your choice is inspired.

  10. Oh! Beautifu!! I love this card. Sweet and one of my FAV color combos.

    Mary, I appreciate your help with the “Color Coach” last week. I wanted to let you know I decided to hold off on ordering that from you for now. But I really appreciate your help!


  11. Soft, sweet and as always, simply inspiring!

  12. Mary, this adorable Easter card is an inspiration to me to get going on the next season. Thank you for the nudge.

  13. Hi Judy,
    I’m so glad you re-signed, not resigned! Ha!! But it is good to hear that you are getting back into the creative mode. Best of luck to you.

  14. This is just so stinkin’ cute!!!! LOVE IT! 🙂

  15. Isnt it amazing how much a little paper crafting can inspire?

  16. Hi Judy . . . Im so glad to play a wee part in your recovery! M

  17. Chery McAskill

    Oh Judy I know how you feel…been there, done it…the same happened to me…the light at the end of the tunnel…Mary’s Blog to cheer us up!!! Thanks Mary for all your inspiration!! Love this card. Did the blog hop and all were so ‘Springy’ !!

  18. From having to drop as a demo, to finally re-signing and now some surgery which has me out of commission for a short while, your daily cards have been such a wonderfully uplifting inspiration. You’ve given me so much joy and so many ideas for( hopefully sometime in the next few dats) when I can get back to stampin’! Thank you so much.

  19. Oooo, so sweet MsMary , love it ,
    Hugs frenchie

  20. I adore your bunny card, Mary!!!!

  21. Such a sweet card, Mary!

  22. Thanks, Dorothy. The Starburst Framelits Dies should work in your Cuttlebug. You may need to adjust the sandwich. Mary

  23. LOVE how you used this bunny for your “blog hop”…..ADORABLE!

  24. Pretty, Pretty, Card! Cute little bunny and love the colors. Thanks for the Spring Blog Hop will all the ideas and inspiration!

  25. Love your sense of humor, Mary! I would never have thought to use a bunny image for the blog HOP! lol Adorable card!

  26. Fabulous!! a Spring Blog Hop!!! I’m on it, totally need to see flowers and bunnies and butterflies. Love this little bunny Mary, looks like she’s contemplating a field of flowers out in the distance.

    “It’s Spring again, the Earth is like a child that remembers poems by heart”.

  27. Very nice work on the blog hop. I, myself, like simplicity and I certainly love this bunny card Mary. Question for you:
    Do you think the Starburst Framelits would go through a Cuddlebug? I don’t have the Big Shot. What is the diameter of the largest framelit?

  28. I just finished hopping and I want to say – I’m feeling very springy especially considering how early it is! Well done, ladies. Beautiful work and lots of inspiration.

  29. I would follow that little bunny anywhere!!! LOVE the rhinestone! Your bow is gorgeous…mine always look like blobs and then I resort to a knot! Simplicity to the max…you always inspire me! Off to hop…hop….hop!
