Whimsy Stamps Digi Release April Blog Hop

I am back again with my last post for the day!

Since today is the first of the month, we are having our Whimsy Stamps digital release blog hop!

If you arrived here from Linda's blog you are in the right place, if not, you will want to go to the beginning which is Dawn's blog to start so you don't miss any of the amazing projects!

Don't forget to leave comments along the way as there are going to be 2 mystery blogs that will draw a random winner from all of the comments left, and they get to choose one of the digis. Then at the end of the hop there will be one grand prize winner who will get to choose 5 newly released digis and will also have the chance to showcase them on her/his blog during the month of April as a Guest Designer. How exciting is that!!!

Since easter will be here before we know it and I need a few more easter cards, I decided to use this adorable bunny with flowers image by Crissy Armstrong. Love love love it!!

It can be found here along with all the other cuties just released today! (Plus many many others too!) I hope you find some time to go check them out, Crissy has released so many cuties again, including a meadow background that is just gorgeous!!
Here are the other cute digis just released!

*NEW Bunny with Flowers*NEW Hello World!*NEW Lilly Filly*NEW New Chickie*NEW Newborn Joon*NEW Sweet Babies

I used my derwent coloursoft pencils and baby oil for coloring.
Funny thing, while I used a gray colored pencil for some shading on the bunny, my daughter said, "but mom, the easter bunny is supposed to be white, I saw him last year at the mall". Then my son got into the discussion, saying "no, he is brown, I saw it on the preview of the new easter bunny movie", so I had the kids arguing what color the easter bunny is until I decided to tell them that there is probably more than one easter bunny LOL.
Seriously, why can't the media/hollywood agree on what color the easter bunny is??

My papers are from a DCWV stack. Embellished with some ribbon, prima flowers, sizzix leaves and sticky pearls. Then I added some glitter to the flowers. The sentiment is from an old SU easter stamp set.

Here is the list of challenges I'd like to enter this to:

Your next stop on this hop is

Jackie's blog.

If you get lost along the way you can always go to the Whimsy Inspirations Blog for the comlete hop order.

Don't forget to leave comments for a chance at a digital stamp from two mystery blogs. You have one whole week to hop along!

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today!
Hope you'll have a great weekend and

have fun hopping!!
