Nosy Bunny – Hoppy Easter Collection

Sorry, could not hold it :-) i had to show you today a picture of Maus – i took it yesterday morning while watching some TV. He got really big – almost 12 pounds! Back to cards ….

Maus_March_re My very talented friend Jacque created for this week a really great sketch for us to follow on the Friday Sketcher blog, if you can go check it out you can twist it in many ways and get really creative with this one.

I had my card already done for Magnolia, Sweden when i realized.. hmmm.. that could work for the sketch this week.

Well… as you know, the DT gets some supplies from Magnolia provided to make sample cards, which we have to sent back to Sweden. In my package was 1 sheet that i could not combine with any of my other colors of papers i had. So i cut that cute  aqua bunny paper and yeiks.. i made a mistake.. alright no problem.. cut again and i managed to cut cooked. How bad can my luck be? It’s not that i never make cards, right?!

Gatefold_Bunny_re

Sooo… think, think what can i do to fix it? Check it out.. i made a 5.5 x 5.5 gatefold card out of it. Actually i believe it works really nicely with the bunny from behind :-) he looks like he is peeking inside the card, where i have stamped the Magnolia tree (I extended the grass/flower area by hand with my Copic 0.01 pen - with sentiment from last years Easter Collection.

Be sure to check out all the samples for inspiration posted by the Design team, hopefully you will play along and post your own creation on the Friday Sketcher blog where we have "La-La Land” sponsoring a sweet prize this week! The very sweet and gorgeous Irina is sponsoring us this week!

Morning! This is such a cute card. Your cat is so pretty too. Love the blue eyes. I have 2 cats and one is really chubby. She is so sweet. We rescued her after she was attacked by a pitbull. She is great now!

Angelwood said...

Oh that kitty is beautiful! What stunning blue eyes she has - my kids would love this kitty and keep asking for another one (we have 2 now and they don't get along). :0)

Your card is lovely! I love the flowers you've used and your coloring is gorgeous as always!

your little boo boo turned into an adorable card. And your extended grass looks like it was part of the stamp. Never would have known you hand drew some of it. Great card, and what an adorable kitty as well who is bigger than my dog...lol

OMG, Claudia. When I saw todays post, I nearly fainted. You have my cats twin. I have the same cat, (Mitzy), and seriously you would not know them apart. They are surely twins (except I live in Australia), and my cat has only 1 eye. They really are identical. I keep going back for another look, because its like looking at Mitzy. I love Maus!!!
