Hoppy Birthday! (Spring has sprung!)

Out of all the animals I've drawn, I think this little bunny from "Just So Hoppy" is still one of my top 5 faves! I've been neglecting him for too long! Glad spring is here and I have all sorts of crads to make with him! Here I stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black on GK Pure Luxury White , added a little shading with the pink and gray Copics (plus a tulip from the set!), and cut him out (popped up on dimensionals) sitting on top of the stamped "hoppy" using that cute bling 'bet from MFT(stamped in SU! Pretty in Pink). The polka dots on the letters are just perfect with the centers of the flowers on this digital paper (Digital Neopolitan pack from the Floral Frenzy Kit )! "birthday" from the Just So Hoppy set is stamped along the "y" at the end. Card base is Mountain Rose Glimmer from Paper Temptress. I made this card shorter (folded it measures, 3 1/4" 5 1/2"), so with my extended bunny ears it would still fit into an A2 envelope.

BTW, my back is so much better! (still haven't stamped yet, but it was fortunately nothing a good trigger point massage, Advil, Epsom bath, glass of wine and 8 hours on a heating pack couldn't fix!) Thanks everyone for your well wishes and prayers! ( now my problem is I'd rather be working on my NEWEST TIP SHEET than making cards, heh heh! it's a good one!!) Sneak peeeks start one week from today!! can't wait, can't wait!

Your back...find an Osteopath and ask for Prolotherapy. This fixed my trigger points permenantly and it was soooo easy. Take care.
