Excitement…of the wrong sort!

Well we had a lot of excitement yesterday when we woke up to a 5.7 magnitude earthquake here in Utah!  It was pretty scary.  It first sounded like thunder, or a sonic boom and then everything started rolling and shaking for about 30 seconds.  We had many aftershocks throughout the day which kept everyone on edge.  I have only felt minor earthquakes during my 28 years in Utah.  This really frightened me, so much so that I ended up with an episode of atrial fibrillation.  Those that deal with afib know how uncomfortable and scary those episodes can be. So it was not a fun day and I didn’t get anything done. Today things are much quieter and I am now in my craft room ready to start creating some more cards. 

Here’s a card I did the other day. Its another Easter card and I love how it turned out. 

I used the Egg Painting Bunny die from Cottage Cutz.  I cut him from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80lb cardstock and colored everything with a mixture of copic and spectrum noir alcohol markers.   I then glued all the pieces together.  For the background I used another piece of the same cardstock cut to 4″x5-1/4″.  I used a stencil from Tim Holtz layering stencils called speckles and used distress oxide inks to create the paint “splatters”.  I used a strip of colorful dotted cardstock from my stash to ground the bunny some.  The sentiment came from a stamp set by Darcie Heater called “Happy Mail”.  I layered that panel with some blue cardstock and adhered it to a white card base cut from Recollections white 110lb cardstock.  I hope you like it!
