This is Not a Bunny Tree; It's a Tree with Bunnies ...

Pin It

So, today is "Create a Vacuum" Day ... strange, I thought nature abhorred a vacuum. No. Wait. I know: it's me who abhors a vacuum!

Today's card project was created super-fast using a Nestabilities Large Scallop Circle die, scraps of designer paper, and a couple three MS punches. I stamped the Kraft card stock with SU's "Canvas" backgrounder and watermark ink, then free-handed the tree, drew in the ground and added some cheesy-lookin' grass clumps with a drawing pen.

I created a scalloped border with a slit punch and adhered it along the side of the card and finis. Easy-peasy-bunny-squeezy!

Soooo, I'm not quite sure what's goin' on with Sheila ... maybe she's gettin' sick, 'cuz she didn't do or say ONE ridiculous/hysterical/off-color thing all day yesterday. Gosh, I hope she feels better fast; I really miss the free entertainment!

This is stunning! Ouuu that tree and the round DP you have behind! I wish I could come to a class you taught(and go shopping under your direction!) ;O) I must say, the green books and the foot are freaky (I have the books, the blue bottles & a shoe stretcher collection too... If you had an black iron hand that gotten stolen it'd be just TOO coincidental, lol) Ouuu I wants to make me a TREE! ;O) OXO
