OCC Challenge - Think Easter!!!

Happy weekend everyone!!!

I'm B-A-C-K!!! I can't believe I haven't stamped in over a week.....time flies by so fast!!! I had a fabulous time in Lubbock thanks to our friends Susannah and Nick!!! They have three beautiful children that stole my heart and I already miss them dearly!!! If everything works out as planned we should have a get together again this summer!!!

My goodness I have so much to tell you, but I try to keep it short...I start with the OCC Challenge. Thank you so much for playing last weeks Color Challenge...you all did a fabulous job!!! Each approach was unique and perfect!!! Swing by the OCC Blog to find out who won the *Mystery Package*!!!

For this weeks OCC Challenge I thought it would be fun to create an *EASTER* card or project. With the Easter holidays approaching quickly, this is a great opportunity to create that last minute card or project!!! Can't wait to see what you all come up with :) !!!

Here is my idea.......




My inspiration to create this sweet combo came from this weeks IC224 - Cutest Food. I chose this super yummy little Bunny Dish. You have to check out this awesome store....too cute!!!

I used the super duper cute Northwoods image Bunny with Tulips that is available at Stamper's Dream Store. I inked it in Memento Black and colored it with Copic Markers. The Design Paper is from the BasicGrey Nook & Pantry Collection.

I finished the card off with a Purple Button, Purple Scrap Floss, Silver Pearls and some Black Check Ribbon that is also available at the Stamper's Dream Store .

The box was done with the Sizzix Bigz XL Box # 2 Die. I decorated it with the same Black Check Ribbon, Purple Button, Purple Scrap-Floss and Silver Pearls.

Oh before I go I wanted to share something with you.....most of you know that I did a little *House Hunting* on my Texas trip and I would like to share a house that I found and really, really liked.....of course we have to sell our house here in GA first, but at least there are possibilities :)!!! Just in case it should be gone by the time we make it out there I would have a floorplan to go by....okay HERE it is!!! What do you think...isn't it fab???

Sorry....I got a little sidetracked....please make sure to stop by the OCC Blog to see all the Designer Samples and information on how to play along!!!

Hey GF, welcome back!!! Glad to hear you had a great time and found a FAB house!!! The place looks amazing and I hope it is still available when you need to buy!!!

As for your card and box - how delicious are they!!! Love the bold colours, fab bows and buttons and that bunny is adorable!!!!

Carol Southern said...

Gorgeous card and love your colour combo.
The house looks terrific, love it too. I do hope it's still available for you when you're ready to buy.
I was surprised at the cost, to buy a house like that over here it would be double that amount. Maybe I should talk hubby into moving to USA..LOL.

Gorgeous card and candy box. I love the crisp white with the touch of red and that wonderful black gingham bow. And those big purple buttons are yummy! Love your take on the challenge this week. Glad to hear you had a great trip. Hope you have a wonderful week with some nice spring weather!

Hugs,
