Last of the Funny Bunnies!

Here is the last of the Funny Bunny cards, and this is by far my favorite. So of course, I have to tell you the story behind it!

I first saw this cute card on SCS made by SleepyinSeattle and had a little chuckle. You see...I will turn 36 in 1 month (from today in fact!) and I have been very proud of the fact that I had NO gray hairs...NONE! I once teased my brother about all his gray (he's a few years older) and then challenged him to find a gray on my head, and he couldn't! So, about 2 weeks ago (around the time I discovered the card) I found a gray hair. I was DEVASTATED! How could this happen! So, when I found a 2nd gray hair this past weekend, I knew what I had to do...recreate the sentiment of the card with a whole slew of rabbits!

This card was so much fun...and the great part was my husband (quite possibly the least supportive person of my crafting!) looked at the stamped image and said "Wow, that looks quite difficult, a lot of work!" :-) Not often I get crumbs like that. So, originally I would not have included the ribbon, but one of my bunnies up front got an ink spot on him, so I had to cover it! I like the look of masking, but I'm usually too lazy to do much of it. I ended up with 5 masks by the time I finished!

I hope you all enjoy these...and don't forget to scroll down to get some Blog Bon Bons!!

Supplies:
Stamps: bunny hugs
Paper: Tempting Turquoise, Certainly Celery, Petals & Paisleys DSP
Ink: Basic Black, going gray, regal rose, certainly celery
Accessories: rose grosgrain, white wide organdy ribbon, key tag punch, aquapainter
TFL!

  16. This is a darling card! My first gray hairs appeared at 23, and I try to fight them off with hair color. (I'd be pure white if I let my hair go natural excect one dark streak). It does look like a difficult card; also extremely clever and very cute. Thanks for sharing!
