It's for my eldest son who's 14 and all man, but I made it because its cuteness will make him laugh and because it will remind him of when he was a little boy. The boys used to share a room when they were little and I used to read two bedtime stories, one each, and the other got to listen in. One of their favourites was the wonderful 'I love you Blue Kangaroo' by Emma Chichester Clark. My youngest always wanted to be Blue Kangaroo when I tucked him in, but my eldest son preferred to be my Yellow Cotton Rabbit.
I just loved the way the paper-pieced Everybunny rabbit turned out. He was stamped four times: once on the card base and then on yellow dotty designer paper, on Whisper White card stock and on Naturals White card stock. I cut the whole image out of the Naturals card stock using my sharp paper snips and sponged the egg shell with Marina Mist ink. The rabbit was cut out of the yellow paper and glued to the Naturals and the scarf was coloured with markers before being cut out and glued onto the rabbit. Finally I attached the whole thing to the stamped image on the card base so that only the stamped shadow showed beneath the paper-piecing.
The sentiment is computer-generated.
I thought this card would make a sweet card for Easter too or for a new baby.
Here's what you'll need to make this card

It was Shrove Tuesday here yesterday but we decided to have our pancakes on Monday because my daughter was going to be away. While I was busy with my pancake production line I was amused to hear my eldest son say: "Man, that is a lot of pancakes but then I am a lot of man!"
It's Three Minute Thursday here tomorrow so if you're interested in quick cards, do pop in and take a look! See you then,
