Happy egg hunting card made using the NEW Baby Steps cartridge.

Hello, friends!!

I hope you all had a lovely week! Mine has been a busy one!

Today's card is made using the NEW Baby Steps cartridge. This bunny is hidden on the bottom row of the font feature, but should not be over looked. I love finding little gems on cartridges! Anyway, this cartridge also has a few great shapes like this 'top note' shape AND a scalloped oval! These shapes are so handy dandy! The best part is that they have multiple layers. Which always adds so much to the cut.

I used Bella BLVD paper.
The bunny was cut out at 4". The 'top note' shape out at 3 1/2".
The stamp is from My Creative Time(Emma's stamps) and is called Color Me Happy. I stamped it and then punched it out using a SU! punch.
I added faux stitching using my White Signo Uniball pen.
Thanks so much for stopping by this week, my sweets! My birthday is Sunday, so fingers crossed my husband got me something good. Good in my mind is either scrapbooking supplies, jewelry, or flowers, so here's hoping! I am seriously looking forward to the dinner though! We are going out for sushi(which is my favorite) and we do not do that often enough!

Anyway, I hope you all have a great weekend!
