Now this is a 2 day event, so you will check out half of the DT blogs today and half tomorrow. Make sure to mark your calendars or make yourself a reminder to hop again tomorrow by starting at Jen's blog and you will finish at Tracey's blog!

OK we are doing the Bunny Hop here at my blog because I got to work with the Bunny Pocket Patootie, which would be perfect for Easter! I decided to make a pocket that I could slide a gift card in or some fun goodies for one kiddos. My image is colored with copics and then added some glossy accents to polka dots and bunny's teeth.

Now how about some super sweet blog candy, leave me some love and tell me what you would love to find in your Easter basket. I will pick one random winner to win 2 Pocket Patooties of your choice! Now hop on over to Tracey's blog to see what she has come up with!

Michelle Perkett Love Letter Blog Hop

Welome to your next stop on the Michelle Perkett Love Letter Blog Hop, if you came here from Mez's Blog you are on right track. If not please head over to Michelle's Blog to start the hop.

We will be celebrating Valentines day by writing a special love letter to the love of our lives! It can be your husband, boyfriend, mother, sister, daughter or son, or a loved one who is no longer with us. Michelle graciously provided us her "love letter fairy" stamp to work with. She is flying around the world delivering love letters! (and candy hearts here and there, too!:)

For my card, I used this yummy Paper Company paper from the Huggs & kisses line called Swirly hearts that I got from Archiver's. The ribbon I have had for some time, got it at Target in the $1 section, added some bling, and a little Martha Stewart heart border punch. I am going to send this to my hubs Grandpa Ollie, we just lost Gma in Decemebr right before Christmas and she was a very special part of our family. I want him to know we are all thinking of him during his time and shower him with some love! I am still working on coming up with just the right words to comfort him.

Thank you for stopping by and leaving me some LOVE, now head on over to Sarah's Blog to contniue the hop!
