These were some note cards that I picked up in the Michael's dollar bin. Plain note cards with a word embossed on the front of the cards.
On the card with all the bunny's I used chalks to color the image. The other images I used my LePlume markers.

* 16 billion jelly beans are made for Easter (that's enough to completely fill an 89 feet high and 60 feet wide plastic Easter egg -about the height of a nine-story office building!)
* Like the egg, the rabbit is a symbol of new life and rebirth, and it is probably this association that gave rise to the famous Easter Bunny. Rabbits have long been associated with fertility and birth. The actual Easter Bunny legend is rooted in German tradition. The legend holds that a poor woman living in Germany decorated colorful eggs for her children to find. As soon as the hidden eggs were found by the children, a large bunny was seen hopping away. This ancient legend is thought to be the root of the Easter Bunny we know and love today.

Some Easter facts:
Easter always falls between March 22 and April 25.
The reason for painting easter eggs in bright color’s is they represent the bright sunlight of spring time.
The most famously known easter event took place in the year 1878. This year president Hayes and his wife Lucy officially opened the White House grounds to the children for egg rolling on Easter Monday. Since then this event is held each year.

When I got home today (2/3/09) there was a package waiting for me it was Isabel's card. She made 21 beautiful easter cards.
Ilove the pink card with the window cut out with the little rabbit.
On her Happy Easter cards she has quilled flower and leaves, and the Happy Easter is lifted off the card with pop dots.
I love the cards with the huge image of the eggs with the ribbon, and yes the card does fit into the envelope.

This paper piecing I broke down the clip art that inspired this paper piecing into 4 pieces. If you notice each piece is different. The chicken in each egg is seating at a different height.

Then later tonight I have to complete some valentine cards, a birthday card, finsih up some paper piecing, and if I am still awake some easter cards for the troops.
Everyone have a wonderful weekend
The puppy heart is for Sara. That is an actual picture of her dog Emma Rose. I embossed some paws onto the card, and took some red ink and rubbed on the embossing paws to highlight them more. The front of the card says "Guess Who Loves U". on the inside it says "Aunt Patty.
The 3 cindrella hearts are for 3 little girls that love their princesses, Bailey, Trinity and Courtney. The Babe Ruth heart is for for Dalton, our red glove baseball player. The Cars heart is for my little nephew, Peyton, that loves cars and trucks. The Bratz heart is for my niece, Alexis. Each heart has candy attached on the inside of the card.

One version of my egg shaped cards. I started with a 4-1/4 x 5-1/2. I also used some of my wooden stamps from michael's. The dragon fly is a stamp that I colored and cut out. Then I went surfing the net for some sentiments, which I found some really nice ones. I also was creative on the inside of my cards.
