Thanks A Bunch

Hello there my crafty friends!  I started with a piece of white card and very lightly added some soft clouds behind by sponging Tumbled Glass and Spun Sugar over a hand cut cloud stencil.  I cut the Easter Bunny from that die set in blush pink.  I added a bow tie cut from raspberry card.  I coloured his nose, cheeks and ears with Spun Sugar.  His tail was made fluffy by adding Fluffy Stuff in white, then heating it.   I cut seven carrots out of orange and green.  I cut the tops off the orange carrots and glued them onto the green carrots.  I arranged all of them so it looked like the bunny was sitting amongst all of them (in his happy place I would guess!)  I added on in his hands too.  I cut the Thanks A Bunch sentiment in raspberry card and glued it to the top of the card.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6"  x  7"  in size.

Before I sign off, I would like to tell you about our newest demonstrator.  His name is James Hembrow.  I have known James for quite a few years as he and his lovely wife Julie owned a craft shop where I demonstrated for the weekend with Julia Watts some time ago.  The shop is now only online, but James is one of the nicest people that I have ever met!  He will be doing his very first shows for us today on Hobbymaker at 1pm and 7pm.  Please tune in to support James and see his great samples and demos.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue, maybe you should have uploaded a Halloween witch sample this Saturday as I was only reading about James yesterday on the CE Facebook page with pictures of you all outside his shop, spooky lol.
So back to the inspiration and idea for today, another cutie close up, I really love the expression on the rabbits face, I can't help but smile, the detail is outstanding, made for a "Happy Easter" when it comes round next month.
Will be recording James later as our darling Lottie is visiting, the first time I've seen her since Christmas what with long hospital admissions plus biopsies on my face, I looked such a frightening mess I didn't want it to upset and worry her at her tender age of 8 !!! How did that happen Sue ? Lol
To all our blog friends I send my love and gentle hugs xx

Good Morning Sue. Another gorgeous Easter Card Creation. As I have said before Easter cards are not really my thing ... But that doesn't take anything away from this lovely sample. I am sure that anyone celebrating this occasion will really appreciate the meaningful expression as they open this card. Thankyou Sue. Sending hugs 🤗 and best wishes to everyone who needs them today. Please stay safe and well 🙏.
Kind regards Ann Toppcards in Leeds

Hi Sue
Happy Saturday everyone x
Oh my word, the expression on your bunnies face really makes me smile, as does this card. It’s going to take him a while to get through those carrots isn’t it? Lol 😂
Take care one and all x
Sending you all positive thoughts x

Hi Sue
Such a fun card this morning, I thought the bunny had a pinky tinge to it and then read you’d used blush card. Will tune in to watch James demonstrate your floral panel dies

Love and hugs to everyone
