Shakin' & Rock'n

Hi There,

Well I've been busy in my craftroom making Easter projects.

I was blog surfing yesterday and stumbled across a site that had a challenge for using an action Wobbler. I still had a spare bunny head already created so thought this was a perfect opportunity to complete a card. Be sure to check out Scrappy Moms Stamps for inspiration and if you're looking for some of those action wobblers they are for sale on her site.

The bunny is from cartridge Easter 2010 and flocked applied to the image. For the design of the card I went to MojoMonday and used sketch #231 for inspiration.

Using Cricut Craftroom I designed all the  paper colors and sizing before I cut. That program saves me so much paper cause I'm not always re-cutting to get the size correct. The colors and patterns are from Cricut Imagine - Elise. There are some really nice patterns on there especially for scrapbook pages.

Other Supplies
Swiss Dots Embossing Folder
Happy Easter - Stampin' Up
Border Punch - Stampin' Up
Ink - Tim Holtz Victorian Velvet
Brads & Ribbon
The bunny's eyes show up better in person. The brown flock is showing up much darker than it should. 
If you're still reading I'm going to share a little about my week-end. On Saturday we went to the Houston Rodeo. Had never been before so thought we should check it out. First thing - one should have bought their tickets online. We got there and the only tickets left were standing room only. We bought them anyway. What I didn't realize is the ticket gets you in to see everything. All the exhibits, wander around the midway, food booths (nobody should go hungry there...there was food booths non-stop), inside the stadium to see the actually rodeo and GET see the entertainment for the evening. There evening entertainment is always big name music stars. Saturday night BRAD PAISLEY was playing.

So the rodeo starts around 4:00 p.m. We go inside around 3:00 to secure a standing room only place. We stood in that same place till 8:00. The rodeo was great. So well organized. One event after the other with no down time. We got to see some of the top competitors compete. Brad Paisley came on stage at 7:00 and played till 8:00. Great concert and would certainly go again but I'd buy tickets early. But for $16.00 each I can't complain about the value I got for my dollar!

Hopping or Hopping to be back Friday with another project.
