Signs of Spring ATCs

I just participated in another online ATC swap (via CoachCreativeSpace), this swap's theme being Spring Celebration. The recipients have received my three ATC's (artist trading cards) so I can now share this latest batch :)

I was inspired by all the spring activity here in the desert, more specifically all the critter activity that signals spring has emerged here on the desert floor. At around the same time I came across a paint chip color named "Cottontail" which inspired the first card I made (second image) as cottontail and jackrabbit abound during this time of year with plenty of succulent plants to feed upon. Also, our desert tortoises come out of hibernation, a sure sign of spring in our household :) I wanted to celebrate these animals, they are three of my favorites. Hope you enjoy:
Brother Jackrabbit
Cottontail Maiden
