Happy Easter (Bunny)

Good Morning.  I hope you have had a wonderful start to your weekend.  It is my turn today to be the featured designer at  the Action Wobbles blog.  I have a cute card to show you that reflects the upcoming holiday in a couple of weeks.  But first, the back story of how I got this cartridge. 

I fell in love with the images that I have seen using Teddy Bear Parade Cricut cartridge.  Many of you know that I was a teddy bear collector and even tried making bears but found it too hard on my hands.  My tattoo is of a teddy bear reminding me of my collection (which has since been purged and packed away).  The cartridge was not readily available in Canada.  Believe me when I say I checked many Walmarts.  And I do not shop on line.  My parents were heading to visit some friends in Florida and I asked them to keep an eye out for the cartridge for me.  They too visited more than one Walmart with no luck.  The friend they were visiting was not one to give up so he went on line and they found the cartridge at Walmart.com.  Of course, then the site would not take my Dad's Canadian credit card.  Finally their friend was able to use his Paypal account and had the cartridge delivered to their American address after my parents had flown home so the friends brought it home for me and it was picked up last week from the friend's house and I now proudly own the cartridge I have wanted FOREVER.  Such a long story but I am so grateful for all the work that went into this I felt I needed to let y'all know how I received this cartridge.

The day after I got it, I made at least 6 of these cute little bears:


And dressed one up for this card:
