Happy Peepster

Happy Easter, Happy Spring! 
I am playing at the following chllneges:

I used Freshly Made Sketches #282 for my design.

The three stitched squares are die cut with SSS Stitched Squares dies, and the peeps are die cut with SSS My Kind Of Peep dies. 

Pastel plaids (MFT) and peeps.

Darnell's 2nd Annual April Fool's Boo-Boo Hop and NBUS Challenge #11

I bought SSS My Kind Of Peep stamps and dies last year and never used them until today. I am also posting this card

for Darnell's My Big Fat Card Boo Boo. This was my first pass at Freshly Made Sketch #282. I loved it, and then I went back to read the fine print of the challenge, and saw the part that said that it's an all square sketch!  Oooooooops!!!!! My original card was 4/25 x 5.5. I love the sketch and wanted to enter the challenge, so I started over and made the square card at the top of this post. This cracked me up. Gotta leave it to Darnell to provide a place to share our bloopers!

Well, boo-boo or not, both cards are so super cute!
I have this set, too, and love it.

Though I may not care for Peeps, they sure are cute on your cards! I love the plaid dsp backgrounds for them and their fun, bright colors. Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!

These are adorable, love the combo of colours and these cute bunnies. I think it looks great in both cards but I do think the square seems to look easier on the eye. Thanks for joining Ink

Any card with peeps is a winner! Love both versions of your card. There is an exhibit currently at the Racine Art Museum in Wisconsin, all about art with peeps! Check it out:

Well, you're smarter than I am, Stephanie! I would have prolly made circles, too, you know, just to be a bit different (and I gotta say, your circle design IS cuter because of the plump roundness of the peeps!) and then gone ahead and entered it. Then the DT would have rolled their eyes, called each other to talk, er, I mean texted each other about peeps not following directions ... so I give you huge props for catching it before you entered it! And either circle or square, you had me at plaid! Plaid AND peeps? Please! This is a total winner! Thank you so much for being a great sport and sharing your boo boo for the Hop and playing in my NBUS Challenge #11! Hugs, Darnell
