Bunny loves his bear

It's been a bit of a yeuchy damp day today, my planned gardening/weed assault didn't happen, so I stayed in, cleaned my house, had a guilt-free play with my stash and then watched Northern Ireland beat Ukraine an amazing 2-0 in the Euros ... there'll be a few hangovers in the morning for sure! ;)

This one uses this cuuuuute bunny set from MFT.  I always think it's so sad when you see an abandoned unloved bear, especially the ones tied to the front of lorries!!  They should be done for bear cruelty ;)

I'd followed today's MFT Camp Create challenge which was partial die-cutting.  I don't have any stamp/die collections, so just used my stitched circles dies instead.  Images coloured with watercolour pencils and popped up on dimensionals.  Spectrum Noir clear sparkle added to the bear and to the bunny's jumper, and lots of glitter to bunny's tail.  Martha Stewart grass punch.  Paper Smooches heart die.
My second card uses a couple of Eat Cake Graphic stamps:

Doggy coloured with watercolour pencils.  I'm almost at the last of my fab DP from Taylored Expressions, I'm determined to finish it before it disappears into my paper bag ;)
  • Layout based on Sketch Saturday #416 - I went to the bother of cutting out some fab rolling hills to fit the sketch and then cut it too short so that my fence covered them all up.  Doh!
    • Stamp Ink Paper #52 - card makers choice .... favourite stamp maker (Eat Cake Graphics) and favourite DP (Taylored Expressions)
    • Seize the Birthday - anything birthday
    • Penny's Challenge #282 - anything goes


    1. Awwwww, Lynne - these two cards are too cute for words! I especially love that bunny card and your partial die-cutting. It all looks fabulous. You're so creative and an expert at coloring!!!

    2. Oh how cute Lynne! Still laughing here about the bears tied to the fronts of lorries/refuse wagons. It always upsets me too and I have to restrain Parsnip from rushing out, beating up the cab driver and adopting another mouth to feed :)

      Wonderful cards and I agree with Cheryl - your colouring is fabulous!
