Bunny Hop & Chicken Legs

This week's challenge at Mark's Finest Papers ~ MFP FOSTV Challenge 158 ~ was to create a triangle card. I've never done one so I was rather excited to give this a try. Once a found a nice tute that I could follow (oddly enough it was written in German!) I got busy and here's what I came up with!

The colors are so sweet - it makes me wanna smile and color Easter Eggs!! Rather cheerful if I must say so myself. I created the bunny using SU hand held punches based on a combo of a few punch bunnies I've seen out on Bing. This card was easier than it looks for sure and I know I'll be doing more of them in the future! I hope you will give it a try soon too! I also made an Easter basket using the 2-4-6 box as a base. I'll work on getting it loaded later today.
I have also worked on a challenge over at Simon Says Stamp. The site is really sweet and the shop has adorable dies too! This challenge is from last Wednesday (only found their challenges today). It's Things That Fly, here's my little chicken. The idea for this card was something I saw on SCS a good while ago. It's a really old SU set that I've kept all these years cuz it's just so cute.
One last challenge before I go to start playing mom again... This is from My Favorite Things. It's a card sketch challenge. Here's my card:
The sun is coming in at an odd angle, but it's a beautiful day so I won't say a negative word about it! =) 
OH - and great news! Tomorrow is my b-day and hubby's been asking what I want. Well, seeing as how my camera died a few days ago - I told him I needed one. So, it's already been ordered and hopefully will show up soon! Super excited I am! Once it gets here, I will try hard to figure out how to make a video tutorial of something and I'll load it up. Gotta step up my bloggin' game ya know! :wink:  TFSB!
