Hungry Bunnies Card

This card seems to have had the most interest in it, so I thought it would be a great one to start with.

The question I keep getting asked is how I came up with the idea. It's summed up by the saying "Necessity is the mother of invention". 

I was making the samples during the snowy weather and looking out of my craft room window all I could see was white. I then saw the bunny with his paw sticking out and thought he would look really cute building a snowman with his bunny friends. Then came the problem - I don't have the large Clarity Snowman stamp. I'm not one to give up though, so I tried to think of ways to get around it. 

My first idea was cutting one on my Cameo, but I decided that it would spoil the look with everything else being stamped. 

Then out of nowhere I thought - bunnies - snowman - carrot nose - bunnies would want to eat that!!! I did consider just putting the carrot, hat, and buttons on the ground but then the ideas really started to flow (melting snowman and the wording) and I couldn't stop smiling to myself.  :-)

When Hubby came in from work he got "Jason, can you draw me a melting snowman, please?".  By this time I'd done the rest of the stamping so it was a bit of a daunting task for him; although I'm sure he knew I would have been very understanding if he'd messed it all up!!!!!! He said afterwards that he hadn't felt under so much pressure since he last left Afghanistan....

  3. I think this card was a melting success, well done (Jason}

  4. OMG just looked at this fabulous card it's ace but then as I scrolled down to write a comment I just passed over Annie's comments and not reading it properly just saw Love bits and in my head read it as Love his bits (LOL not explaining further). It is a fab car Lynne very inventive. xx
