Looking Forward to Spring...Waltzingmouse February Blog Party




I'm so very late to the Waltzingmouse Blog Party! On the 17th of every month Waltzingmouse Stamps play host to a themed party and this month it's "Looking Forward to Spring"...I'm going to keep this post super-short as time is really not on my side today...


wms feb blog party - bunny sweets

I decided to decorate this little jar of sweeties with some lovely spring-like patterned paper, lace, gingham ribbon and some natural colored raffia. I cut a pink doily using my Spellbinders Floral Doily Motifs and standard circles dies and stamped a circular frame from Faux Fun Circles and then the cute little rabbit image from the Li'l Buddies stamp set.

I colored the bunny and then added a pretty pink butterfly and flowers rub-ons by K&Co.

Thanks so much for visiting and for looking :)

Enjoy the rest of the party!!
