Bashful Bunny Blog Hop (With Candy, of Course!!!)

      Hello and welcome to the Bashful Bunny Blog Hop!!!  If you've hopped you're way here from checking out Kathy's great project, then you're on the right track!  I'm so excited, as this is my first Blog Hop that I have participated in, and to share in my excitement, I am offering up some fantastic blog candy as well (Check out the bottom of this long post for details)! 

        As I mentioned previously, I was recently in the Bashful Bunny Swap over on the Cricut Messageboard and to celebrate the end of our swap and the reveal of our partners, Julie and Jana, our amazing hostesses have organized this Blog Hop to showcase some Easter projects!  I have been busy making LOTS of Easter projects over the past several weeks and decided I would just include them all in this post.  Some have been previously posted on my blog, but I'm hoping there will be many new faces (and followers!!!) that can enjoy them.  If you would like further details on any of the projects, please scroll down to earlier posts or please feel free to ask any questions!  Several projects were completed with a pretty big contest that is going on over at Magnolia-licious Highlites blog, hosted by the ever-generous Diana Crick, owner of the Magnolia-licious store.  There were four categories and each person could enter each category one time.  The categories were: (1) Easter card using Regular sized Magnolia image, (2) Easter card using Mini sized Magnolia images, (3) Anything but a card, and (4) Card using regular sized Magnolia image AND mini sized Magnolia image.   I have projects completed for at least two of the categories, definitely #4, and then one I'm not sure where it belongs, either #1 or #3.  Maybe you guys can let me know what you think?  The contest ends on April 19th and the voting runs April 20th - April 27th.  I sure would LOVE it if you guys might be willing to take a wander over to the site sometime within that week and vote for the projects you like best (maybe one of mine?!?!?).  There are some fantastic prizes to be won and rest assured, if I somehow manage to win one, there will be some blog candy in it for you guys!!!  All right, all right, enough gibberish, I know...On to the pictures!!!!

This is the card/project in question....Is it a Card?  Or is it anything but a card?  What do you think?

Here's another Easter card I've made....(and has been entered under Category #4 - Using regular sized images and a mini - the mini are the Easter eggs!)

An Easter Project....

(Does it look familiar to anyone?!?!)

And finally, one last Easter card using a Sarah Kay image...

 That's all I have for right now, but remember if you would like any details on the four cards/projects that are pictured here, please scroll down to the posts or just simply ask if you have any questions!  I hope you've enjoyed what I've had to offer and I would LOVE if you made it a point to check out the Magnolia-licious Highlites blog and vote for one of my first two cards!  Hmmmmm....what else am I forgetting???  Oh yeah!  What's a blog hop without BLOG CANDY!!!!  Here's what I have to offer:

*A Brand New King Tilda stamp by Magnolia (she's a cutie!)
*Recollections Mini Pink Mulberry Flowers
*1 oz. bottle of Silver Sugar Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels
*Stickles in Lavendar, Crystal, and Lime Green
*Tea Dye Distress Ink by Tim Holtz

To be eligible to win this blog candy, please become a follower (if you're not already!) and leave me a comment below.  Maybe tell me which category you think the first card/project should be entered under - a card, or anything but a card?  Or maybe just tell me which your favorite card is.  Either way will get you entered into my blog candy and I will draw a winner using Random Generator on April 18th.  Whew, that was a long post!  But now you're off to see what great project Terri has in store for us!

Here's the complete list so you don't get lost along the way!

  3. Tiara, your projects are all wonderful! I would say the one is ANYTHING BUT A CARD, although it could be considered a fancy card by some.

  4. I have to say I LOVE your work! Wow! I would have to go with the consensus and say it is anything but a card also. My favorite is going to be candle you did, it is gorgeous! May have to try this technique out later. Thanks for the chance to win a great bunch of candy!

  6. Your projects are soooo cute!! I love the colors you chose! I'm going to have to agree that they are anything but a card.

  7. Tiara, you are SO talented! I feel so blessed to have been your sister and received from you. I agree with others that it is Anything But A Card. Really it is a card and more but that isn't the name of any catergories so that is what I am going with...

  8. Wow, very pretty and your coloring is wonderful. You are a very talented lady. I agree Any But A Card. Thanks for sharing all the wonderful projects.

  9. Tiara - Thanks for sharing your incredible projects! I think the first project is "Anything But a Card" definitely. More line an interactive gift box! You are so talented with your Copics and layouts, if you taught a class, I'd take it! Thanks also for participating in the hop and for offering the YUMMY candy! Good luck with all of your challenges!

  10. Tiara hummm I guess great minds think alike! I used hello tilda for my project to!!! I would love to find out how you made the candle!

  11. Tiara I love all you projects but i really love the candle.. i was wondering how you did that i am so glad that you posted how.. now i will have to try this..


  12. Tiara...GREAT BLOG!!! I'm soo happy to see you now have one. Such a talented gal like yourself needs a place to showcase her creations...

    I think your first creation should be everything but a card..that is really cool.

    Great blog candy too....

  13. Thanks for sharing! I think it fits under anything but a card!


  14. Wow, such fantastic creations! Great job on the colouring as well. I think your first project should go into anything but a card/card ;) Keep up the fabulous work!!

  15. I agree with the previous comments. It looks more like a gift box to me than a card. It is gorgeous by the way - you are extremely talented! Great candy too!

  18. Oh my gosh!! I can't pick just one!! I love them all!! I think my fave if I had to pick would be the candle! Too cute!!

  20. Those are amazing!!!!! Definitely anything but a card. You do fabulous work!

  21. I just love the candle.. I would really like to learn how to make those..


  22. Tiara HOLY WOWZERS! Amazing! STUNNING! JAW DROPPING! I absolutely LOVE IT ALL! I think you should enter the first one in anything BUT a card as it is just STUNNING! WOW! I am so happy I found your blog now! Can't wait to see more!

  23. Wow!!That is fantastic. I think you should enter it as anything but a card.

  25. Tiara, such beautiful projects. You are one talented lady. Favorites? Well you KNOW I am going to choose the candle..hehe!

    The card/box is so creative...would love to know the steps to making it. It is too bad that you cannot enter it in both categories. If you entered in the would be a card and "all that"! As most others have suggested as well, I am guessing it should go into the all else category.
    Thanks so much for sharing your talents with us and thank you for being part of the Bunny Swap and Hop!


  26. Everything you make is amazingly beautiful. I love the candle and the first project card/box I would love to know how to make that!

  27. OMGosh it is a card on steroids!! Love it!! I am not following so hopefully I can learn something from your amazing coloring skills.

  28. Your work is beautiful. I would love to know how you did that candle.

  29. i would enter it into anything but a card. You are very talented. Tildas are so freakin cute.I would also love to know how you did the candle.

  30. Oh gosh! These are so wonderful! I can't help you with the categories...I mean, the first one is a card but it's so much more. I can tell you they're gorgeous!
    Rene :D

  31. All these are beautiful! I especially love the first one - I think it would definately qualify for "anything but a card"! Thanks!

  32. I think the first one should be anything but a card.

  33. Oh my they are all beautiful. That little Tilda coming out of the egg is fabulous. What wonderful candy too- and no calories. I am now a follower.

  34. Wow, these are lovely! I definitely think "anything but a card." So glad I checked out this post. Will check in as followe! Kathie

  35. Wow Tiara, these are amazingly beautiful creations :o)
