Recycle - Reuse

Recycle and reuse - do you recognize the little bunny - he is the wrapper around the Brach's marshmallow bunny - this is my oldest daughter's favorite Easter candy - so I bought 2 boxes - one for her and one for cardmaking. Only 3 bunnies were sacrificed in the creation of this card - they may be my favorite Easter candy also. The foil is a little hard to take a picture of - I thought she would get a giggle out of the card when she gets it in the mail. My youngest daughter's favorite Easter candy is Reese's peanut butter egg - with all my creativity - I just can't come up with an Easter card from the wrapper.
This card is based on the challenge - a sketch - at the Cuddlebug Challenge site. The challenge this week is being sponsored by Sheetload of Cards and Shortcuts. Sheetload of Cards has a sketch each month - which shows you how to cut a certain number of sheets of paper to make 4 to 6 cards from the one design. Go check out the beautiful examples - April is up.
The paper is some Basic Grey, leftovers of Fancypants. The purple paper was embossed with the Cuddlebug Embossing folder. Brads - Target dollar bin. Flowers Prima. Sentiment stamp - Studio G.
Everyone have a lovely Saturday - need to run errands - watch sports on TV, etc. Pan of brownies already baked to send to the neighbors today. Another neighbor stopped by with fresh banana muffins this morning - so those were very yummy with my coffee. I will have to take over some brownies to her and her daughter.
