A Little Something Hoppy

I've been crafting my fingers off, lately. We had a lot of great challenges this round of Virtual Stamp Night. Flopsey got to come out and play in my studio.

Of course I had to use Flopsey! With three buns, I should have made a third card, but two worked just fine - one for the girl, one for the boys! I colored them with Copic markers and did a little paper piecing.

Remember, you can click on the image and see it in more detail. I used some distress ink to color up the sentiments, and some washi tape to tone down the bright patterned paper. The deets are below. I hope you're having a beautiful day, and really appreciate you stopping by to see my little creations.

Ta for now,

Recipe, Both Cards:

Dies: Spellbinders Labels; Sizzix Alterations, Tim Holtz; Lil Inkers bow die; McGill punch

March is Marching in

Howdy friends! It's been awhile since I posted. It's one of the things I want to 'fix' this year - sharing my art more often with you all.

We had a small crisis with Buddy bunneh - he was bitten by Ms. Tinker and we had to go to the emergency vet to get him stitched back together. It was pricey but worth it, and he's on the mend. I've had to take a break from running because of a hip issue that we've yet to figure out.

Last weekend, we celebrated another Virtual Stamp Night on Splitcoast. Those projects are due today. I'm sharing one of the fun projects I created for one of the challenges. The theme of the event was Birds, Bees and Creepy Crawlies! Lee (LuvLee of Gina K Design's fame) challenged us to make a card to show Girls are Buggies, Too!

I don't do girly or blingy very well, but I was pleased with this one. Hee hee! Did you notice? Did you catch on to "Wait... that's not a bug!" Look closely at the image. Go ahead - you can click on it to make it larger. Yep - that hummingbird is made up of a bunch of little butterflies! Squeee!!!

I have so many more things to show you, but I'll save them for now. I'll try to post a few more this week. If you would, please pray for us as our church choir is traveling to Irving, Tx (Dallas 'burb) to sing at the State Convention. What an honor! Many thanks, friends - I love that you stopped by here on your busy day.

Welcome to the Bunny Nest! I host rescued animals in a small in-home setting. Currently, I host 3 bunnies and 2 kitties. These animals will be socialized and housed for the entirety of their lives in my home. They inspire my crafts, and I use any proceeds to pay for their needs. Thanks for visiting!
