Don't Look Back Bunnies

Coffee of the Day - Highlander Creme (a hazelnut/butterscotch mix)

Happy Monday to you! and Happy President's Day to those of you who live in the States. :)

I am here to share with you a card featuring a new image, 'Bunny Brothers #179,' from Sandra Caldwell's cute Etsy shop.

the sentiment stamp is from Unity. it is one of my all time fave sayings. just seemed to go perfectly with this image. :)  papers are from the Authentique Springtime collection. main image dies are by Spellbinders, heart die is by Sizzix, and flourish die (under bow, cut from clear packaging) is Tim Holtz. flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts. pretty diamond satin ribbon comes from Really Reasonable Ribbon. little dew drops are some I won at Double Click Skittles.

I want to share just a bit of my thinking when I made this card:

as I was making it, I was thinking of my family. when any of our sons go through difficult times, my husband and I try to be there to encourage them to press on toward the future. no matter what choices they have made to get them to the point of difficulty, we want them to know that they are always always loved and that point is not a permanent stop or destination, but just a small detour on their life's road.

when I saw this image, it was as if it was hubby and I standing beside one of our sons and letting him know we would always be there for him.

I do hope you will join us over in Sandra's Facebook group.

So glad you posted that digi you made with my image here. I loved it and the colors you used are wonderful. Great job !! And I loved your story. I have a son also...and these days times seem very tough on them, raise a family is not easy, more so it seems than when we grew up. Prayer, hope, and trust that it will get better someday. He must stand strong...and not lose hope, dreams do come true!! Hugs and Happiness Sandra
