Snow Bunnies…

Didn’t expect to see me again so soon did you? LOL.  And I’m not posting an anniversary card either.  Not that I don’t have more to do, I just wanted to do something else. 

This beautiful girl and her companions are done by Wee Stamps.  I won a challenge over at Whimsy Stamps, and this was one of the options I had to choose.  I was able to select two stamps. Woo Hoo!  So at some time in the future you’ll see the little girl I chose.

I’ve used the new Wee Stamp, Cheery Lynn Designs dies and MS punches (on the inside). The distressed papers are by DCWV and open stock paper.  The flowers, ribbon, buttons, two shiny snowflakes and embroidery threads are all from my stash.  I did one of my favorite little techniques; using real thread over the drawn lines connecting the sled and hanging off the back with the mouse.  The bow was tied with Bow Easy.  Then I used Stickles over her fur and the snow. I also used the Cuttlebug polka dots folder on the blue circle.

The only problem with this image is that apparently everyone loves it, and it’s everywhere. LOL.  I guess it really shows that I have really good taste.

The inside wasn’t too difficult as all I needed was to use MS punches and a phrase from one of the sets I have. I didn’t have the snowflakes punches, but I thought this was a close substitute.
