A Little Late But Better Than Never

Well, it's official...Spring is legally here, at least according to the calender now we just need the weather to co operate. It's still just a high of -2 C here in SW Ontario and that's without the wind chill factor! {which is very cold !}.
Anyway, to try to give you a warm, snuggly feeling, I have 2 cards to share with you. Each one features last Friday's New Release Images from Melissa, over at
Meljen's Designs. Yes, I'm a bit late; but like my post title ...Better Late Than Never. {giggle}
This first card features the image "Easter Bunny Cupcake" , and I am going to enter it into the challenge at Simply Create Too, where the ladies are looking for Bunnies.
{Both cards qualify for the following challenges, but alas, I'm not sure how to enter them both from one blog post. I'm going to try from an open gallery, so I'll have to see what happens.}
 Crazy 4 Challenges provided this Sketch for their challenge. Party Time Tuesday is hosting a Colour Challenge, so I'm sure this assortment of embossed cardstock will work just fine. {It's so nice to be able to use up some of the stuff that's been hanging around in my scraproom for quite some time now! There are a whole host of Challenge Blogs looking for Easter projects, including: Simon Says, Oldie But A Goodie, Celebrate The Occasion and Twist of Faith, so I'll be entering both of these cards in their challenges, I used a Kreaxions Punch to add the fancy little border.
 
For card # 2,  I used the Sketch from Crazy 4 Challenges again, but switched the circles for rectangles. This Meljen's Designs image is called Spring Flowers Cupcake. Again I went with soft Spring colours so I think it will also qualify for the Colour challenge at Party Time Tuesdays. Lots of folder embossing again to give new life to plain, old cardstock, which gives it a nice Easter look for the challenges at Simon Says, Oldie But A Goodie, Celebrate the Occasion and Twist of Faith.
 
Well, that's it for today. Check back tomorrow for my project for the new challenge over at Meljen's Designs.
hugs,
Nancy
