Yes. I was yelling that at the top of my lungs. Just say'n. But, the thing of it is, I really really really really really DO love Jelly Beans! I love them. For reals. They are tiny little chewy pieces of happy. AND...they are so pretty! In all of their fabulous colors and flavors! *sigh* It's a good thing I have some, otherwise this post would be down right torturous! HA!

Jelly Bean Easter

Yup. I totally had a reason for getting excited about jelly beans! I made a Jelly Bean Easter card with a SUPER fun House Mouse stamp and some fabulous papers from the Samantha Walker Cottontail collection combined with some Creative Imaginations awesomeness!

Jelly Bean Easter (image)

I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils blended with mineral spirits. YUMMINESS!!!!!

Jelly Bean Easter (bow)

A bit of ric rac and seam binding brighten up the top. LOVING orange all of the sudden. I've never been much of an orange kinda girl, but lately, I have seriously been loving it. I am going to need to buy more orange supplies because that is one section in my stash that is seriously lacking. Gonna have to work on that!

Jelly Bean Easter (border)

The bottom border is punched with a border punch (thank you, Martha Stewart) and then I added a few orange gem stones for some sparkle. Because sparkle makes me happy. Just say'n.

I am entering this fun card in the House-Mouse & Friends Easter card challenge! I'm also entering in the On The Spot Challenge over at My Time To Craft!

Now...after you leave a comment, I give you full permission to go buy a bag of jelly beans. Target carries the Starburst ones that come in a bag of all reds. Yup. Strawberry, Cherry, and Watermelon. All red. All one bag. Pure and utter joy. Buy them. Eat them. Smile because life is happier with jelly beans in it. Just say'n.

Happy Monday, folks!
