Hello and welcome to JUST SOME LINES EASTER Blog Hop!!  
Our hop starts today, Wednesday, March 21, and goes until Saturday, March 24 at 10pm EST.  
You will be visiting some of our DT members' blogs to get a look at the NEW EASTER IMAGES available at JUST SOME LINES SHOP!!  
As you hop to the DT member blogs featured in the hop, please remember to leave comments at each stop, including the JUST SOME LINES Blog.  
You do not need to leave a comment at the last stop, which is the JUST SOME LINES SHOP.  

 Winners will be chosen from the comments left on each blog and there will also be some "surprise" winners chosen at random from comments left along the hop as well as a GRAND PRIZE featuring your choice of 3 Easter images from JUST SOME LINES SHOP  .....
plus a goodie bag of crafting treats!

So, let's get started!  
Here is the card I created with one of the new Easter images, called "Easter Bunny - Egg Hugg -available in the shop HERE

 As a background I recycled an old Hallmark card that I have been saving for years (since 2000 in fact) as I just love the picture.    Although the background is very busy (can you spot the other bunny?) I think the colours serve to highlight the Just Some Lines bunny perfectly!

The cutie pie Just Some Lines bunny was coloured using Copics, Spectrum Noir and Nellie Snellen markers and the Easter egg was paper pieced, shaded using the markers and then given the Glossy accent treatment.  You'll also see some Glossy Accents on his foot pads and nose.  A bow and some sewn on beads and sequins are the embellishments.

What do you think of the Just Some Lines Easter images  you have seen on the hop so far?

If you lose your way on the hop, you can always come back to the JUST SOME LINES Blog and start from the beginning.  

Your next stop on the hop will be the fabulously talented
