Crafting for all Seasons #96 "Dies and/or Punches"

Good morning all.

We had another lovely day yesterday...surprising since it's half term! No baking got done...hubby set off with good intentions then decided to sort out all the cupboards and pantry which somehow always seem to be heap lie on...I'll give you three guesses who causes the problem!! I managed a pan of stock and then did a Cottage Pie for tea. Spent most of the rest of my day sorting out computers and hard wiring the internet connection to all the main computers and gadgets...fingers crossed things seem to be better!

It's time for a new challenge at CFAS and this time the theme is "Dies and/or Punches. We're looking forward to seeing all your makes. We're being sponsored by Tiffany Doodles who gave the DT images to work with.

I've used Shy Bunny and re-coloured the print to brown to match my papers. Papers are Milton & Co. Square dies are from Spellbinders. Flower die from Marianne Design. Bow and gems from my stash

  10. Hi Carol, maybe a good thing you didn't get to baking, all mine was gone by the second day.
    I love your card, that image is the double of my pet rabbit I had as a child, Thumper, I know, very original on the name front!

    Enjoy your evening, hugs Erika. x

  13. What an adorable little bunny. You've certainly given him his proper due by making him the star of the show! As to the rearranging cupboards, that is the only way I operate. I have one task in mind, but find myself wandering down rabbit trails and only getting 1/3 of 12 things done!

  14. so ADORABLE Carol, love the way you designed and coloured this sweet bunny. Looks so real.xx{The Journey is the Start – my personal blog}

  15. Cute little bunny, lovely in his vintage coloring. That S/B die shows him off wonderfully well, and I really like the coloration you chose. Perfect for this shy little fella. TFS & Hugs.

  16. Such a lovable bunny and I love the mono tones.
