The Rare "Haiku Bunny" Lives!

Pin It


Happy Tuesday, Hoarding Card Makers!

Today's card project features the elusive "Haiku Bunny" wood-mounted stamp by Hero Arts. Long-time stamp aficionados and collectors know how much these stamps have sold for on eBay ... I saw one go for well over $70.00 a few years ago. So, if anyone would like to purchase my only-used-once-on-a-Sunday-afternoon Haiku Bunny stamp, just let me know ... I'll make you a fabtastic deal!

Here's my Haiku Bunny card:

This card was created for use as a birthday card ... it wasn't till I posted this that I realized you can't really read the tag. Pretend you do ...

For the ginormous view of my card, clicky on the photo ... and for all the magical product info, check out the Card Recipe, below.

Sooooooo, Sheila and I were yakkin' it up last night and, since we both TiVo "Glee" ... and of late "American Idol" has been running long ... it's been ruining the big "Glee" finale for us every week since the show returned on April 13. Between that unforgivable act ... and the boring, no-talent-contestants, we're kinda hatin' on AI this season.

"Well, in all fairness, they are doing wonderful things with their "Idol Gives Back" charity event." I offered.

"Yeah, well, I want them to give me back all the hours I've wasted watching "American Idol!" Sheila griped.

Thanks so much for stopping by today ... you rock!

~Hugs,

I can't believe stamps go for that much...but to be honest I used to collect TY beanie babies and I (ok my hubby) did pay £120 for one bear, that is now sat in a box along with the other 2000 in the loft oops....
