A Wild Frolic in the Grass

Happy Friday everyone! This week flew right by even though the word of this week has been chilly. Probably in reality this is more typical March weather for us  than earlier in the month when it felt more like spring.
  Longer days are great and some days we can even squeeze in a walk after work-this photo is from yesterday.
Still, it was way better than my drive to work on Monday.
 I got stuck behind this trio of snowplows the whole way down the highway.
I am so glad the snow melts within a day at this time of year.
This photo is really depressing!
You can see why I have been enjoying those photos on the blogs of people who are lucky enough to be actually having spring now.
So to forget about the cold and to celebrate spring and also Easter that is coming up this weekend, I made this journal page which I am sharing today.
These bunnies are frolicking in the grass. The page is made on a Gelli print, with 2 die cut bunnies, and some painted details.

Friday means a link up to  Paint Party Friday . Thank you Kristen and Eva for hosting.

And this fortnight over at Try It On Tuesday the theme is nature.

And lastly, the theme over at Moo Mania is spring.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend, and if you celebrate Easter, I hope it is a sunny, warm and wonderful day for you. Don't eat too many jelly beans or chocolate rabbits either.   :)

Your colourful illustration is terrific, so much energy here. I love your bright bunnies with their patterned bodies and magenta pink ears and what a fabulous sky. Great work, Erika, I'm smiling.
Happy PPF! Happy Easter!

This might look depressing to you, but we have had NO snow to speak of this winter, so I actually am enjoying photos of snow. Photos yes, living in it, NO.

I had to laugh at the snow plows. We don't see that in KS. Maybe it's because most of our roads are two lanes, even on the highways, so that is a rare sight.

I admit I am in LOVE with your darling bunnies. They are fantastic and so adorable running through and playing in the grass. They are perfect for TioT, as well as MM&M.

Happy Easter to you too, dear. Yes, I celebrate it, even though it's one of the least "green" holidays of the year with the plastic baskets, eggs, grass, and plastic wrapped candies (off my soapbox, now).

Very sweet bunnies you have created on this picture, and fresh colours of spring!

Gerrina said...

Your bunnies look so fresh and alive! Great collage technique!

zandra said...

Love the colors of your pages but, especially those sweet bunnies. Thanks for playing with us at TIOT.

Wow, I love your wild bunnies! They have such wonderful "coats". We have also snow here in Finland but it's becoming warmer.
Wishing you a joyful Easter time 🌷🐤

Your bunny page is OH SO SWEET!! So vibrant-and yes, much better than a grey snowy scene. Happy PPF and a happy Easter too!

What cute bunnies! Such a happy piece. I think it would probably better to be behind the snow removal team instead of in front of them. We have been having Spring here in Northern California for over a month. The weather this year is so strange. I hope the sun shines bright and the temperature rises for you. It is Spring and hopefully your weather will remember that :-) hugs, Rasz

laurie said...

the journal page is alive with color, i love that!!
I see you have as much snow as we do,, where oh where is our spring lol,,

Nicole Beadwright Campanella said...

aaahhh yeahhhh that snow photo is depressing. LOL You live in a very pretty place. Your bunnies are full of life and happy spring colors.
You asked if I sell the Pot lighter covers. Yes. As I test the patterns that I sell the finished pieces get sold as well. Thanks for coming by my blog and have a "warm, sunny" Easter.

Wonderful, happy bunnies frolicking in the grass. Your road looks like graded gravel. Is that out in the countryside? Love the dog. I miss my black lab who died several years ago. We'd take walks together too.

Faye said...

Looking closer, I believe your asphalt road has brown sand on it.

Neesie said...

Brr... that looks so cold Erika, I do hope it warms up a little for you soon. At least following those snowplows got you through safely, but still a little scary.
Your bunny's look full of the joys of spring!
I've been watching the wild rabbits in the field next to our house as they make a dash from one end to another. They're definitely on a mission and think it's spring!
Happy PPF and Easter to you

Hi Erika. It really looks cold over there, but those bunnies really warm up the picture. They are darling with their prints. Great idea. Enjoy the Easter weekend, stay warm.
