Hoppy Easter! Happy April Fools Day....

Happy April Fool's Day...I wonder what will be written in our Morning papers? It can't be any sillier than it's been all week!
Aw well, here's a quickie card! Why is it a quickie when it took me hours? Because I made it mainly for a Easter/Spring challenge over on Paper Craft Planet, by The Stamping Boutique, who have given out two freebies to members, some tulips in a watering can, which I already had, and a Bunny in a Pocket. Isn't he cute!?! (The Stamping Boutique Store)
The cards have to be in by tomorrow night... (as I type and you read this, tonight!)
So here's my Bunny in a Pocket card, using up some freebie papers, which luckily had already printed out, seeing I'm still out of coloured ink and I found in my 'bit' folder (I throw nothing away!) They are all from crafty magazines from years back. If I can find any links, will add them later. Meanwhile, I've linked a few Easter freebie papers in the post below this one.
I've used a ivory pearl card, covered it with yellow and blue card. Printed the bunny out four times. Coloured him with ProMarkers, then cut him out. (A bit of bunny boiling...but chopping instead!) I've 3d-ed (or, to be posh, and to prove I can spell 'decoupage') the bunnie, to make him pop out a bit, fixing with silicone glue.
The Bunny button, (with the back cut off) came back with me from Seattle, USA a few years back. I mean I bought it over there, it didn't actually stow away in my bag!
The Easter Egg Ribbon came from Crafty Ribbons. (I won it last year!)
I've added a tiny bit of Stickles glitter glue to the (3D-ed) tulip and carrot leaves and those starry bits at the back of the bunny.
The Font is a freebie. It's called Grilled Cheese BTN. You can download it HERE or just Google the name (some sites do charge)
