Still Easter?

I'm sneaking in at the end of the evening on Easter Monday so I can share the cards I made this year. Usually I let the weekend go by and then don't want to extend the season... bad enough that you keep seeing Christmas cards from me. ;) 

I wanted the bunny to shine on this first card, but also felt like being a teeny bit artsy, so white-embossed a plaid background stamp then watercoloured it in Easter colours. It's possible the bunny really loves the carrot more than the recipient of the card, but I still thought the sentiment went well with the image. A few sequins added a little bling.

Another bunny, and when I looked at his arms, I thought he would make an excellent Easter egg juggler. I used some glitter glue for the egg white leaking out of the broken one. 

And just to keep things from getting too boring, an Easter chick for the third card I made this year. The watercoloured panel is another leftover from my experiments with tissue paper a few weeks ago. I added a little embossing and scoring to the card base, but otherwise kept it clean and simple. Because of that, I'm entering this in the almost-over CAS on Friday Easter challenge. 
Whether you were observing Easter or not, hope your weekend was a good one!
