The cutest bunny in the forest (probably!)

When Stampin' Up's Life in the Forest stamp set arrived at my house there was a major squea fest - the little animals are just so cute! I used the adorable bunny for my Three Minute Thursday card today (and there's even a video tutorial if you scroll down!) Come and see:


I made this as a birthday card for a tot at first (as in the video) but it would make a perfect Easter card too (as above) - and you can always add tiny punched flowers or eggs if the whim takes you. Have you spotted the leafy bushes using the Petal Parade Sale-a-bration stamp set? I knew that was going to come in mighty handy! And how about the candy dot cotton tail for the rabbit. How cute is that?!

The candy dot is metal so I'm going to link this up with Less is More's Metal challenge and also with Addicted to Stamps and More, where the lovely ladies are running a CAS challenge.

Here's my short video tutorial - do let me know what you think won't you.

Since Jamie Oliver's school lunches campaign seems to have faded into the dim and distant past, I'm a big believer in a large cooked breakfast to minimise my children's need to buy the rubbish that's available in the school canteen. Bacon, eggs, sausage, mushrooms, tomato are all regulars on my menu as well as a handful of rocket to get some extra nutrition into my youngest! The other day I asked him if he'd like one egg or two. He was obviously in French mode: "One is an oeuf," he said.

See you tomorrow,

  3. I also have a special place in my heart for bunnies .... and your card is so adorable!

    I had to write and let you know how glad I was to read your post regarding your habit of providing such wonderful breakfasts for your children before they head out to school each day! ! This is not the case in so many families ..... and it saddens me to think that those children who aren't given a good substantial breakfast are hindered in their ability to learn and grow. Good for you for being such a wise and wonderful Mother! You're children are very blessed!
