May 11, 2016 REPEAT IMPRESSIONS - Use your scraps


Wow - can't believe that it is already the second week of May already - the oak trees in our woods have finally leafed out (thank heaven - so much pollen during this process) the garden is planted and growing nicely, grass is growing to the point that hubby is mowing twice a week.  So I thought this little rabbit was perfect for this weeks challenge which our team mate JOY selected  use your scraps.  I LOVE papers - cs, designer prints, paper pkgs. you name it, I will never in my lifetime run out of papers.  At one time I thought I would "get into" scrapbooking - so bought up a couple (okay more than a couple) of 12 x 12 scrap-booking pads.  I would use a snippet here and there and then have this left over beautiful pattern paper.  So I used  Ode to Spring 2605P  from REPEAT IMPRESSIONS  with the thought that this happy bunny was perfect for spring - and the scraps I had from  leftover 12 x 12 pattern papers.

I stamped him in cocoa memento ink and added some chalk brown to his body.  Colored the flowers with Spica glitter pens in the colors to match my papers.  Love the yippee saying I had in my die cut box and a perfect blue button to finish the card.  I'm sending this out to a chemo buddy that has "graduated" already but just wanted her to know I was still thinking about her.  

 Hoping you will create a card using our challenge of "use your scaps"  to enter our challenge over at

Love the spring colors and happy image. We are getting lot of rain here - thank goodness my planting is also done. It's fun to watch things blossom and grow.
