Animal Crackers for Easter!

Today's is blogger's challenge day and we have a sketch this week.  So my first card is created using that sketch.  The egg is made with the wide oval punch.  So it is also part of the Latenightstamper's challenge to use punches.  It was a fun one to make.  Don't you think that little guys is just adorable.

 

Since I had the set out and thinking Easter I had to use the bunny too!  So here is that one....



This one is using my sketch challenge for last week. Bet you didn't think Easter when you looked at the Animal Cracker set but it is perfect!
