Love you more than jelly beans



Hello!  Welcome to the February Papertrey Ink Blog Hop, this month's inspiration photo has an Easter theme and I looked and I tried and pulled out all sorts of stamps (including Mailbox Greetings one of my first PTI sets b/c it has grass in the set) and nothing worked.  So I'm using this Reverse Confetti bunny and some PTI Mix and Match dies for my CAS card.  The funny thing about this sentiment-- I don't like jelly beans.  We have them on the desk at the Outside Inn and for years people are like, "How can you work with a bowl full of jelly beans in front of you?"  And I'd just reply that I'd rather get my calories from chocolate chip cookies.  My second card is for the February Altenew Inspiration Challenge.  I upcycled a letterpress menu-- I was looking for a nice thick piece of cardstock and have a stash of leftovers from my husband's cousin's work.  But I didn't want the bride & groom to know I had transformed their expensive menu, so with a little bit of stamping, coloring and some vellum you can barely tell what amazing food they ate 3 years ago.

Beautiful cards, Erin! I really love your colorful background peeking through the Mix + Mat dies. I can resist jelly beans, too. But chocolate bunnies would be in great danger here! 💗
