SHOPPING OUR STASH #346 - Here Comes Peter Cottontail

Hello and welcome!
I hope all of you who celebrated St. Patrick's Day have
recovered from all the shenanigans (and drinking)
that holiday brings! LOL!

This week at
we are gearing up for the next big holiday: EASTER!
We'd love to see your Easter creations!
Here's the card I made:

I used a new stitch die for the first time.
(Well, I bought it a couple months ago, and
thought I'd better stop just looking at it
sitting on my desk, and use it!)
I did a lot of cross stitching in my 20's and 30's, so the floss
I've used is probably a good 25+ years old.
I couldn't find a tiny white pom pom in all the stash I have, so
I took a bit of a cotton ball, and rolled it around my hands
to make a tiny tail.
So there you have it, a bunny butt Easter card!
I hope that you find some time this week to join in
our Easter challenge at Shopping Our Stash!
We'd love to see what you come up with.
Thanks for visiting, and I hope that you have a great day!

  10. Stoppittt... this is so cute! I am impressed! Good job on the tail, too. I learned to cross-stitch while in Maryland when I was in 7th grade. My aunt's friend Mary in Westminster taught my sister and I and bought us little kits.
