Birthday Bunny

Hello!  I'm back with the card I made for my Sister last week but wanted to wait till it floated over to the US (Happy Birthday Sis - hope you've got this by now, if not, this is what you're getting LOL- hope you like it ;)).

I've used a cute LOTV bunny stamp, coloured as always with my Copics and as this one is floating along I had to use my Heroarts cloud stamp again to make the background behind her (stamped with matching colours of distress inks) and then the layout of the card just sort of fell into place after that, after much of my usual fiddling around.

I've cut out the image freehand to make a sort of cloud shape.  The sun is last month's freebie stamp off Craft stamper mag which I've cut out and added a tiny sentiment in the middle.  The happy birthday is Basic Grey stamp, the circle sentiment is from a SU set.  Papers are from the gorgeous Baisc Grey 'Kioshi' pad which I have only just broken into (always have to look at them awhile before I can bear to cut/use them LOL) and teamed with some lilac pearlescent cardstock.  Then lots of my MS and EK punches used (the EK success paw print one is fab - like the way I staggered them either side of the strip so it looks like set of footprints?!). Lots of doodling and then stickles glue (on the flame of candle, around cloud and in sun) & gemstones for bit of bling and finishing touch.  I've pretty much just listed everything I've used so won't bother repeating it in a stash list.

Hope the sun is shining where you are, UK is supposed to heat up this week so enjoy it whilst it's here ;)  Thanks for dropping by and until next time,

I came home from work yesterday evening and found an envelope lying on the front lawn, all soaking wet because we had a afternoon rain shower. Yes we are in our rainy season now, so it more or less rains everyday in the afternoon/evening. Anyway, I took it indoor and realized Mike must have collected letters from the mailbox but dropped this one on his way home. I knew right away it’s a card from you. The card inside is ok and because of the expensive ink/pen/stuff you used, the card was in perfect condition. I absolutely love it. Have you seen those little paws prints…just so dame cute! Thank you. Big hug from across the pond. Big Sis xx

Pretty as a picture Fran. Your sis is going to love this. You coloured the bunny perfectly and I love the 'cloud'! Seeing a lot of those today. As usual one nice sunny day and then it's back to drizzle and cloud. (Which means humid)! Yak.
