Day 8: Here comes Peter Cottontail!

. . . hopping down the bunny trail . . . to welcome you to Day 8 of our 25 Days of Christmas Crafting Showcase.  We're taking a break from Christmas and letting April and Easter take the spotlight today.  Our Designers have whipped up some really cute projects featuring flowers, bunnies and other spring things.  Take a look!!

Evelyn created this sweet little card using the Little Lamb 1 cutting file from PaperCraftingWorld.com.  Make sure you head over to her blog for all the details.

Debbie created this cute 6 x 6 calendar page using today's FREE digi stamp.
Check out the details on her blog.

Jenny used the Cricut Easter 2010 cartridge and the Bunny Topper cutting file from PaperCraftingWorld.com to create this adorable criss-cross pocket card.
 Check out the details on her blog.

Elizabeth created this sweet little basket using the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge
and a flower digi stamp from PaperCraftingWorld.com.
Check out her blog for the details.

Kemma created this rainy day card using her Cricut Imagine cartridge
Enjoy the Seasons.  Check out the details on her blog.

Melin created this vintage Christmas card using today's FREE vintage graphic. 
The beautiful paper is from QUICK QUOTES and so is the gorgeous SHEER RIBBON.
The Stickles and Pop dots can be purchased through our other sponsor: CUTTERS CREEK.
Don't FORGET....Each of these WONDERFUL SPONSORS have DISCOUNTS available for you, our readers!!! See below or go to our SPONSOR PAGE for all the details!!!

Here is a close up shot to try and show how I dabbed some Stickles onto the different "snow" parts around the window and on the child's lantern. The photo just doesn't capture the beauty of the subtle yet very pretty sparkle the stickles adds.

I want to take a moment to spotlight one of our sponsors: Pazzles. For those of you who are strictly Cricut crafters, you may not be familiar with Pazzles. They are a wonderful family owned company that manufactures another cutter called the Pazzles Inspiration. It is without a doubt....my first love! I learned so much from this amazing woman named KLO who works for the Pazzles family. For those of you that work with OTHER cutters and work with the Funtime Software, our grand prize is especially nice! BUT I want to make it CLEAR....FOR ANYONE who works with SVG FILES...The 1 year subscription prize to the Pazzles Craft Room is an AMAZING GIFT! WHY because the new Pazzles Software supports SVG format! This means all the new files in their library are SVG "ready" and they have a forum, challenges and an extensive library with HUNDREDS of "ideas"
Right Now the Pazzles Team is showcasing a 12 Days of Boxes! See all these gorgeous boxes?  Not only did they show them...They have given us the files and "HOW TO" instructions...ALL as PART of being a CRAFT ROOM MEMBER!!!  

Now to get you to head over to check them out....how about a free WPC file?
Head over to the Pazzles Craft Room HERE and you can download this adorable Bunny for FREE! For those that don't work with WPC format, it is relatively easy to convert it into a useable format. I will be sharing directions on that in the very near future so go grab it and keep it on the side!
