Cute as a Bunny

Don't you just love these Gorjuss girl stamps. I think they are so cute.
They remind me of my middle daughter Heather.
I coloured this image with Copics :)
Then I paper pieced her dress with the same paper pack as I used for the card.
I cut some squares and backed them with papers from the pack.
I am trying to use the papers from the same paper pack to make my cards. I usually mix them up, which I enjoy doing, but staying with the same paper pack is just easier as the designers have already done the colour matching for you.















A close up of the coloured image.
I also punched out some flowers and formed them (which I love to do) and then put a black jewel in the center.
Punched out a couple of swirls and my flower cluster is complete :)





















The inside of the card.
I used my index/recipe cards for the message.
I also stamped the cute bunny and flower on the card.















Onto My Day:
We came home from camp this afternoon to having to clean up the mess that the siding guys made.
Oh sure they cleaned up the old siding, but they never put anything else away. Wayne and I put the gazebo back, all my lawn furniture and decorations away. Plus we had to replace the door bell as it broke when they took it off....in their defense it was old and brittle. 
Oh yes and we also had to tie up the cables for the satellite and Internet. There was so much extra cable outside of the walls, which means they had to pull it from the house.
Not impressed.

We are just watching the Hunger Games tonight, then off to bed for an early night.

Hope you all had a creative Monday :)

  2. Very cute card. Sorry to hear your siding guys didn't pick up properly. We had to replace our doorbell too when they did our siding.

  3. Lovely card! Her paper pieced dress looks awesome. I'd be a little bit miffed if workers I hired were so lazy and slobby!!

  6. Fabulous cute card - look at that hair - awesome!! We sat and had familymovie night on Sunday and watch "The Hunger Games" - fabulous film - a bit graphic in parts but thought it was great. My daughter has been reading the books and she has really enjoyed reading them. Have a great day.

  13. What a sweet card! You always do such a nice job on each & every one.

    I don't know it seems that so few contracted crews can never clean up the proper way. I'm sure they wouldn't like to be treated that way by you if you were doing work at their homes. And how tiring to have to come home to that.

  16. This is my favorite Gorjuss stamp. I want the print that she has with the girl asleep in bed with the bunny for my daughters room. It reminds me so much of my daughter. Her bunny's name is Bella which she picked out herself. The coloring of the hair is awesome btw!

  17. I love this stamp and the card!

    Sometimes I mix my paper packs up too, but other times, its just easier to go with what they matched already!

    That stinks about the siding mess! I'm glad you got it all sorted out, although you shouldn't have had to do all of that!
