Whipper Snapper Easter Bunny Trio


I have a fun piece of a project I've been working on to share with you today.
Back in November I decided to make a 2012 mini calendar and do a class with a couple of my friends, the plan was to make three calendar layouts a week so we'd have a nice Christmas gift for someone special.  As you may already know my husband was diagnosed with prostate cancer December 8th and my calendar project kind of went by the way side.  My husband is doing well so far, we are waiting to see the next doctor before he can start treatment possibly at the end of this month.  
My calendar isn't done yet but I haven't given up and I do have one more layout finished.

I started with Clear Dollar Stamps Year Round Calendar then stamped the cute Easter Bunny Trio stamp by Whipper Snapper and went to work coloring with Copic markers.  The markers I used are:  RV00, RV02, RV04, YR65, YR68, W0, W1, E41, E42, E43, B21, B23, B41, V01, V12, V15, YG01, YG23, YG25.  After I had it colored I matted the image panel with Discount Cardstock's Royal Blue and then added it to a 5 1/2 X 5 1/2 inch square of Stampin' Up! Pixie Pink.  I felt like it "needed something" so I embossed the edges of the pink with a fun Sizzix embossing folder and punched the holes in the top with the bind It All after I took this picture. 

I also wanted to let you know that we have a new Midweek Throwdown challenge at Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps with an "Easter" theme.  I don't think my calendar page qualifies for the challenge but it does have an "Easter theme"  (:  The deadline to send our Easter cards for our troops to write home on at Operation Write Home is February 15, I'd better get my box sealed up and in the mail soon!  There are also a bunch of other fun challenges going on at the Stars & Stamps blog this week in recognition of the first ever OWH Cruise!

Jan...this is absolutely darling. Did you do the clouds yourself? It doesn't look like you cut around the bunnies...but you are really good so anything is possible. Also, I have 1 family member and one dear friend you have prostrate cancer. So I am familiar with the procedures and will be thinking of you and your husband.

Jan, I love these bunnies. How come I don't have them? As for your Whippers, I'm going to the post office tomorrow to ship my Easter cards out, I will send you what I have stamped for you. I think all I have left is Halloween and Christmas and winter. Hope all goes well with your hubby, my dad and father in law both went thru it and everything is fine with them.
