Sketch Girl 15 with Phindy's Place ~

Hey all!  Sorry I'm a day late...I got on the computer in the morning and then went to go make some breakfast for my boys yesterday.  When I returned to the computer, the internet was running slower than dial up, and I was ready to throw the computer through the window.  I felt the best decision at that point was to step away!  lol  Luckily, it's working a bit better today.
Sketch Girl's sponsor for the 15th sketch is Phindy's Place.  Phindy's Place has tons of digi images that range from the whimsical side to adorable kid images that would be perfect for scrapbook pages.  The designers were lucky enough to be given the adorable Easter Joy image to work with.  It's so fun to color!!
I colored in my little bunny with Copics and then sponged some Pebbles pearlescent chalks for the sky and grass while the image was still in the die.  I like to do it that way because it gives you the illusion of another mat layer.  I just had to pair this up with the other new Perfect Presentation template for March, Spring Basket.  My little guy needs an Easter basket, so this is just perfect.  The template comes with the adorable picket fence that is so versatile...I already have a card planned with it...and also with the decorative mat layers all drawn out for you!  Love it!  I also couldn't resist running to Michael's the other day to pick up the Martha Stewart grass border punch.  I called beforehand and had them set it aside for me.  I was so glad that I did because it was the last one.  The handle is just punched out on both sides with a scallop border punch.  Nothing too fru fru here, it's for my little man!
This sketch has been turned so there are two variations for you to play with.  The randomly selected winner of this sketch will receive a $10 gift certificate to Phindy's Place!! 
Argh...blogger won't let me align those pictures better...sorry! 
You have until April 14th to link up your creations with this sketch here.  Before you head off to your craft room, dining table, closet under the stairs, wherever it is you create, bop around to the designer's blogs and gain some inspiration from their fantabulous craftiness!

This card and basket also qualify for the color challenge over at The Pink Elephant {#60 pastels}.  Thanks for stopping by today!  I have a couple of baby cards that I've been working on this morning, so I may be back later!!  Hope you have a fantastic day!!  ~ lyss

Me likey!! Love the gray bunny. I wimped out on the bunny and left him white. Such a cute basket too! I really need some grass and duh, I need to get cracking and make my own kids a basket. Great work!

Slower than dial-up makes me want to toss the computer out the window, too! ;)

I love how you colored your bunny, and the basket is so cute for a little guy. The embossed fence is a nice little touch! said...

Great set! Love the way you colored the bunny (of course!).
