Hats and Easter Bonnets

Our Sponsor for March is Crafty-emblies



Easter bonnets? Remember wearing them..with white gloves, black patent leather shoes and lacy edged socks? My dad, bless his southern heart, use to give mom and me corsages every Easter too!...sigh....Such sweet times to think about, and this challenge made me think of all those good things...way back then! I was inspired by vintage Easter images, like this:

So I drew this
DCWV - Glitter stack
Faber Castell - Art Grip Aquarelles, PITT pens
Reminisce - white pen
 
And sewed a few glass flower beads to her bonnet
 
I hope you get out your Easter bonnets and come play along with us over at Try it on Tuesday!

You have such a gift for drawing! Love your use of the beads to make flowers for her hat! The plaid looks fab for the St. Paddy's day card too!

Love your drawing, sandee!

It reminds me of a childrens book I had, which I loved a lot. Mother Duck and her children went through some adventures I don't recall, but I am sure, they looked (and were dressed) quite the same as your cute duck!

Waving "servus" from Vienna to the Hills of North Carolina!

You are the queen of cards. You make lovely ones and that Mother's Day card really did it for me!! I love it.

You did a great job drawing the chick. So cute. You draw SO well.

BTW, I don't remember black shoes and white socks on Easter, but I'm not from the south (grin).
