Chocolate Bunny

Hello & Happy Thursday!

The week is flying by and only 3 more days till Easter!

Today I am sharing a couple of Easter cards that I made this week and mailed out to friends using the Chocolate Bunny from years ago. It's one stamp that will stay in my collection for along time!

These cards used many retired products from moons ago but I was thrilled to use them and breath new life into them again! I had to reink my old ink pads so I could use the same colors that were in my DSP.  Regal Rose was a favorite. My Close to Cocoa ink pad was very dry. Good thing I still had the reinker!

Card Details:

Stamps: Chocolate Bunny, Circle of Spring (sentiment)
Ink: Close to Cocoa
Cardstock: Regal Rose, Sahara Sand, Close to Cocoa, Whisper White, Rebecca DSP 
Accessories: Stitched Shapes Framelits, Oval Layering Framelits, Regal Rose 1/8 Taffeta Ribbon, Glue Dots, Rhinestones, Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue

This last one was done with retired products as well.

Sarah is the name of the DSP and I used retired Ballet Blue & Barely Banana cardstock. 
Anyone remember those colors? 

Today is definitely a blast from the past!

My thoughts today....

Baseball season opens today and looking out my window right now does not look like spring.
It is cloudy, foggy & calling for more rain showers. Dare I say it but I heard yesterday that there may be a chance of some snow next week! Acck! I sure hope not!

Anyways, thanks for stopping by & have yourself a great day!

Aw, so happy to see this little bunny! I forgot all about him! I need to group my Easter sets together so I don't forget him next year! Love the color combo you chose, too! Happy Easter!

This has always been my favorite Easter bunny and I was fortunate enough to get my hands on one earlier this year :) Love all those great SU! colors and papers too, and yes - I remember those great colors! I still have a few sheets left of cool caribbean, remember that? My all-time favorite along with purely pomegranate! Great collection of cards and I'm putting you on ignore if you're going to use that four-letter word that starts with S! Humphh!! The forecasters got it wrong so many times this year so far, I'm positive they'll get it wrong again next week too, right? RIGHT?? Yep, RIGHT!!! LOL

As I messaged you, I love this bunny! Every Easter I get aggravated that I did not purchase it. What a great assortment of colors and gorgeous papers!

Oh my, this set is adorable! I have chocolate bunny but as each year passes I keep forgetting to use it. As to the colors, Regal Rose was my favorite pink but I finally used it all up :(

Awesome cards! This is a classic bunny stamp for sure, would be so much fun to play with. I absolutely LOVE the pink/brown DSP! I love a lot of the classic colors I hate that they retire so many of the good ones! Snow?! Well it better be of the light variety! Our "onion" snow then we can call it done till next winter! LOL
