A Vintage Bunny for 50/50 Crafters

Coffee of the Day - Kahlua and Cream

Well I am finally able to get a card completed and posted - yippppeeeeee! you don't know what a major undertaking this has been! took me 2 days because my energy kept disappearing, but I am thrilled to bits to have it finished. :) and it turned out okay, too. that is the happy happy part!

I am part of a fun group called the 'The Special 50/50'. Eventually it will be a group of exactly 50 designers and 50 crafters. The crafters are challenged each month to create something with the digis provided by the artists. I didn't get a chance to play last month, so wanted to try to participate this month. Thought this was the perfect catalyst to jump start my crafting without any DT pressures (not that I feel all that pressured by any of my DTs, but you know what I mean. I have been blessed by the people I work for and with!)

The digi I chose is from a store called Milly Dee Designs. I think he is adorable! and he is completely paper pieced! I did add a few little touches here and there with watercolors and a white gel pen to accent. Pretty much everything on this card came from a wonderful care package I received from Rhonda upon hearing of the demise of much of my craft room. Isn't she amazing?! Thank you again, Rhonda! so I can't tell you who any of the papers are by, but I think they all go well together. :) I added my own little touches here and there to give it that vintage flair - white craft ink along the edges of the card base, all papers distressed with ink.

Enjoy your evening! and thanks for the many emails, cards, and other outpourings of love! y'all are the best!
