Close to My Heart March Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

If you have found yourself here from Haley Dyer's Blog, then you are in the right place.  This month we have over 50 Close to My Heart Consultants for the March Stamp of the Month Blog Hop.  

The March Stamp of the Month is entitled Sensational Season (Set of 10) and it is a fantastic stamp set with lots of detail.  This stamp set proves that acrylic stamps can be very detailed.  Here is a picture of it:

This stamp set can be purchased or you can even get it for free only from March 1 - March 31, 2011.  If you do not have a Close to My Heart Consultant, you can purchase this stamp set on my website.

For the March Stamp of the Month Bloghop I am getting ready for Easter with this cute Easter basket that you can fill up with candy, cookies, or even some cool spa gifts for your mother.  
This is a hard item to photograph so I have included some more pictures for you.  
As you can see, I used our new Sophia Paper Pack.
Who's peeking out?
It's Mama Bunny!  All of my images were colored with reinkers and my handy blending pen on Watercolor paper.  It loved the way the watercolor paper soaked up the ink, but left texture with no streaking.
Close up of Mama Bunny.
On each side of the basket I have a hand colored image from the stamp set.
Isn't Baby Bunny adorable?

The carrots are colored with Sunset reinker and then I colored over them with Sunflower reinker just to give them that yellow orange carrot color.
Look at their cute little tails!  And they are so easy to color.
And the last side says it all.  It is for you.  Now who to give this basket to.........?
