Easter Eggstravaganza!



So far this blog has featured Valentine's day Puns and St. Patrick's Day puns.  Today it's time for an Easter themed pun.  So many eggcellent options (ha!) but in the end I decided to use this adorable sentiment stamp sent to me by a friend--"Easter Eggstravaganza."  I didn't have an image stamp that was a good match, so with a little altering I created this card.  In the original stamp the bunny is holding a chick.  I just wiped away the chick with a baby wipe before stamping and added a few Easter eggs.  Not sure if three eggs counts as an eggstravaganza, but I just don't think that bunny could handle any more!  Cute right? So cute I couldn't resist altering one of the other bunny stamps I have. 

Tadaa!

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp--"Use your favorite tool"  My favorite tool is my Big Shot. 
Papertake Weekly--"Anything goes"
Paper Sundaes--Happy Easter
Penny Black Saturday--"Sing-a-Long"  My song is "Here Comes Peter Cottontail" 
Sketch Saturday--I used the sketch on the first card.  This is how I flipped and rotated the sketch.













Thanks so much for looking!  Hope you have an eggstra special day!
