Get your bunnies out!

Good morning all

What did you think I meant lol!

No I'm not being rude - honest! - you really need to hunt out all those cute bunnies and join in with our challenge over at MAWTT this week

It's just the right time of year for a cute bunny challenge
So that's our theme for the week

Show us  a bunny

and I knew I had a great stamp that I wanted to use - its a Penny Black stamp that I saw on someones blog a while back - I really loved it and it took a bit of tracking down but I eventually found it - then promptly put it away and never even used it!  

Some of my MAWTT buddies might remember a few months back when we had a hedgehog challenge - I think hosted by our lovely Janice  (Happy Birthday for today Janice! ) - I was convinced that this stamp was a hedgehog  and was going to use it then, only to discover the rabbit asleep on the front - I'm sure he chased the hedgehog away lol.   but no it's taken me until now to finally unveil it! - The bunny's cute - but it's the geraniums I really love on this stamp - and it's a dream to colour : ) - it's a really big stamp too, this is an 8x8 inch card.

Anyway - this is what I did....

Image - Dreaming Geraniums from Penny Black
Coloured with Copics and prismacolour pencils
Papers - K & Co (check) and LOTV  (floral)
Kraft card - Crafters companion
Burlap sheet from DCWV
Punch - Martha Stewart
circles - spellbinders and tattered lace
Burlap ribbon - Michaels
Mothers day stamp- stamping all day (they're great fro customised stamps)
DI - TH walnut stain

I did also have a set of leaves and flowers all made up for this card - but in the end decided it was better without them - sometimes less is more!

Hope you'll join in with our challenge this week - I'm dying to come and see your bunnies!!

Lol - ok I confess Judith… I thought that 'Show us a bunny' sounded a bit rude… but nobody else had said, so thought it must be just my dirty mind!! ROFL

Hope you have a nice evening!

Well I'm a huge fan of some of these old PB stamps too, some of them are just so cute, and this one is a prime example! Love your colouring in particular those geranium leaves, so realistic! And you have coordinated the image so beautifully with the rest of the card, just perfect! And thanks for the card and Birthday wishes, Jx
