Easter bunny for my boy!

How to do an easter card for my 15 year old son that he won't look at and go ...er... thanks! and you can just see his brain thinking 'how old does she think I am ?' well he 'll like the chocolate but is getting a bit old for the cute from mum sometimes, I get away with it alot of the time as he just thinks I'm a bit mad at times but still mum's are made to embarres aren't they?

The card I used a Dustin Pike image from High hopes for their challenge of brown and orange and a circle, I think he is just so cute but without the soppy cute bit. The pepers are from papermaina that I won in a blog candy from the fab Hanna as is the ribbon and little orange buttons. The brown buttons are from my stash. I coloured the image with promarkers and as the sun is shining today it really does feel like spring is on its way, at last!.

By the cute and girly happen to have a spring theme so I guess I have an entry for their challenge with my card too.

Do you think my rabbit will count as back to nature as passion for promarkers have back to nature as their theme this week, you can use any colours and layout so I guess I will try my entry over there too.
The fab layout is from the 5th challenge at Totally papercrafts its so simple but very effective as is often the case , thanks for a fab layout guys.

Finally Stamp something have a challenge recipe to use designer paper, a button or buttons and some ribbon, so recipe complete. It's a pity you can't see more of the ribbon, it almost makes me wish I was young enough and had hair long enough to wear in pig tails and ribbons its so pretty, ah well.

Thanks for dropping by and hope you all have some spring weather to enjoy too.
