this cute lil bunny is from a prima stamp set. dontcha just think hes the most precious :) 

the clouds are from cardztv stamp set "up and away". i added some foam stickys under the clouds and bunny  for dimension. i used distress markers to color the bunny and flowers and grass/hill. the stamp doesnt give bunny whiskers so i just used a thin marker to add some.

thank you at cardztv

happy friday :)  our challenge at cardztv is to make a thank you card.  be sure to check out the rest of my uber talented dt sisters' creations  and play along with us we seriously  love when you do!
for my card i used mary's awesome cardztv stamp set "love in a jar"


i stamped then cut out the jar, stamped cherries then inked in the jar with some red and then white ink.i tried to make it look like the cherries were floating in their juices. think maraschinos ;) 
i found the cute cherry paper at hobby lobby 
i used a doily punch on the gingham paper.and added some rhinestones, button and twine.
then i stamped the saying . sorry for the blur i just could not get this right and got frustrated trying. ill only let myself get that way for 2 seconds then im done i dont allow myself that nonsense ;)
