Did someone say Chocolate Bunnies?

When we would go shopping the one thing that my husband would love to do is to spoil the kids by stopping at Lindt or Godiva and picking up a GOOD piece of chocolate.  So every now and then I would stop and get him a treat.  Now I buy the regulars such as M & Ms and jelly beans, but I still like to pick up a Lindt chocolate too in honor of my husband.  The kids love it.  I made this son for my step-son and I edge the oval in ink and the wonderful sentiment from TLC just to add a chocolate look.  The image is from Miss Kate Cuttables.

Owl Easter Card

My step-daughter is "into" owls so for Easter, I made this card for her using this image from Miss Kate Cuttables.  The sentiment is from a wonderful set at TLC.  I just haven't had as much time to color as I wanted so using this pre-colored image was wonderful.
