Bunny Thanks!

I decided I had better make a greater effort to get my Thank you cards done that I need to send out for all of our great gifts we recieved for Christmas. As I was creating this, I realized that I probably should look through my stash to see what I *already* have. But what fun is that? I always like to sit and down and make new ones. However, I am in a bit of a time crunch, because I am *supposed* to be working on some design deadlines. So...I guess it is back to my stash! LOL! I will probably be MIA tomorrow so that I can get everything finished up. I will be back by mid-week with some new designs.

I rummaged through my stamps and decided to use this cute bunny image from SU!'s {Serene Spring} before it retires. It is so much fun to color and I decided to use my Aquapainter and ink refills to color the image. I was hesitant as to which colors to use until I settled on this "Raspberry Tart" DSP from SU!. As I sat looking at this card, I knew it needed something else, but I couldnt' figure out what until I uploaded it and saw it on my computer screen. At that point, I just decided to keep it. It is a little plain, but that is okay every once in a while, I guess.

I first cut and embossed the white paper for the main image with my cuttlebug and the label 2 large die from Nestablilities. I sponged the edges, stamped the image and watercolored.

Thanks for fluttering by!

Gosh, we won't talk about the stash pile...I try to keep it looking the same size so my husband won't notice! Ha! Ha!
I love your blog, and visit it often. Thank you for all of your posts. I enjoy your style of creativitiy! It keeps me in touch with the rest of the real world, since I am up on top of the world in a remote Alaska town.
Looking forward to the new too!

That is not a plain card at all and I love the new banner. Makes me feel chilly but calm! That card is beautiful and the coloring is amazing.
