Did someone say Peeps?! A Freebie....

Hi, everyone!
I have a confession to make........I am a sugar-aholic!!! I love all things sweet! Yummy! I even like my spaghetti sauce on the sweet side! Crazy, I know! So, because Easter means yummy treats in the basket that are sweet....and sticky......(and if you're thinkin' PEEPS....well....you are reading my mind!! hahaha!)
I made an svg in honor of that! :0)  I have to tell you, though......it's not just one svg in this file.........there are FIVE SVG files in todays freebie file!! Yep.....I went a little Easter-happy (did I mention that I really love sugar!?).  Here is a card I made with one of the files:


This one is what I'm calling "Favorite Peeps" SVG. I used some white for the base, and then yellow and pink for the top layers. I added some Stickles to each top layer for the sugar effect (good thing Stickles doesn't taste like sugar.....I'd be all out! hehehe! Can you just imagine me sitting at my desk sucking down each little bottle! hah! Pathetic, I tell 'ya!). I drew in the chick eyes with a brown gelpen, and I layered a scrap piece of brown card stock beneath the rabbits eyes and nose (not a cut file in the folder, just something I did as an afterthought. Coloring in the circles would work equally as well, or adding some black or brown Stickles or glitter). I used my Nesties and some SU punches for the shapes of the dp and card stock. I printed the sentiment from my PSE program.  A little bit of ribbon, primas and brads......and.......Voila!....a sugar-coated card that looks good enough to eat!
The free svg file can be found on the sidebar of my blog, and it contains this, a single layered rabbit peep, a single layered chick peep, a 5" layered border of the rabbit peeps and a 5" border of the layered chick peeps.
I hope you like it! Let me know if you use the files to create any of your Easter projects! I'd love to drool over your version of the Peeps! ;0)
