Easter Bunny for BBTB


We were asked to make a card using the bunny from Doodlecharms this week. I cut him at 4" and stamped his face using a peachy keen stamp from the New Arrivals animal faces set. I cut very thin slivers of black to make his whiskers, and added some chalk and doodling for emphasis.

I cut the eggs from the same cartridge, and used the egg shapes trimmed to make his paws (do rabbits have paws or feet? Whatever)

The basket was also cut from Doodlecharms, and run through the cuttlebug to emboss it, then coloured with copic pens. The sentiment is from a set of printable downloads from the Cutting Cafe, the scalloped circle was cut with my nestabilities die.

As you read this I will hopefully be at 33,000 feet over the Atlantic, winging my way back to Florida. I am taking with me a load of stamped images, my pens and pencils, in my hand luggage, to while away the tedium of a long flight. I do get the feeling that the cabin crew look very oddly at me, I suppose I look like an adult version of a child with a colouring book, which I suppose I am really.........

You are too funny! There is no pic of your easter creation (?) Oh well, I look forward to seeing it later. May check out the BBTB site for it. Safe journeys to you.

Sounds lovely, but I can't actually see the card. You asked about my cuttlebug circle, I cut the circle on my cricut and embossed it in the birthday folder, then inked it. Thanks for all your lovely comments.

Hi Enfys, I'm afraid you've been tagged. Don't feel you have to take up the challenge, I know you are a very busy woman.

Enfys, i don't see your card, but i did see it on the BBTB post - the first ting that caught my eye is the muted Easter colors (wow, great combination!) and then that awesome bow! But I also saw thw way you used that cuttlebug floder on the basket, and the way you "colored" this bunny and embellished him and just made him so much cuter and I fell in LOVE with this card! -great job!

Hehehehe! I like the idea of you doing some colouring whilst flying! When I take the boys to a play centre I take my colouring too (and get some odd looks!)

Hope you get a lot done!
