Midway Reminder at House Mouse and Friends Challenge #189-Spring!!

Good Monday morning oh crafty friends!!
I'm here today to remind you that you still have until Saturday March 14th at midnight to play along with us at House Mouse and Friends "Spring" challenge!!  Our so very talented Tracy is hosting this time and we are sponsored by House Mouse Designs and Simon Says...two fabulous prizes for this super fun and easy challenge!!!  So bust out those "Spring" like House Mouse, Gruffies or Happy Hoppers and join us...or as always you also have our "Anything Goes" let's get crafty!!!!

I have to agree with my teamie America when she said that Spring and Easter seem to go hand in I decided to do one of the Grandsons' Easter cards!!

Here is what I came up with...
please click on the first image for a closer view/slideshow...
I kept it fairly simple as it is for a boy...
I made a faux peek-a-boo card...
the front image opens to reveal another image on the inside...
the DP is "Riverbank Revels"...
 this little darling is "Easter Egg Nap" HMCV12...
coloured with my copics...
the pearl and floss on the side is a handle to open the cut out...
 "Happy Easter" is a Hero Arts stamp...
the sweet little chick and eggs are from Michaels...
 opening to reveal the inside...
 and this super cute image is "Anybody Home" HMIR1004...
 the inside left I will decorate a bit more when I add my sentiment to one of the boys...
the gingham paper is Wild Rose Studios "gorgeous Ginghams"...
 closer view of the right side...
I used the same stamp for the sentiment as the front one...
our sweet little chick thinks he sees a!!...
Well that's an Easter card done!!  Now hop on over to House Mouse and Friends and check out the fabulous creations that my super talented teamies have to show us!!
All materials listed above!
Until next time...thank you for taking the time to stop by!!  Your visits and comments are SO very much appreciated!!
