Some Bunny


I am valiently trying to get in the mood to blog this week, but so far, I'm not in the mood! Is blogging losing it's luster for me? Or could it be I haven't had time to stamp in the last week? I have zilcho stash right now...I sent all my cards off last week to my SIL, so I have nothing. And with no time to make new cards, what the heck do I have to blog about???? LOL!

Since I have nothing "new", I thought I'd share this sweet little card that I made with Verve's new tiny set called Some Bunny. Isn't he adorable? The set has just two stamps...the bunny and the sentiment. Even though it's small, it packs alot of punch. You could use this little guy for so many occasions! He'd be great on a baby card, or on motivating card for your son/daughter.

I filled in the bunny with Liquid Applique, and then I rubbed light pink chalk on his ears and feet with a little Q-tip. His little shirt (real men wear pink:)) is paper pieced with a scrap piece of designer paper. The black polka dot paper is from American Craft.

Things around getting really busy around here.....my SIL Jayne and her husband Ken are arriving today from Fairfax, VA. They will be here visiting for a week. Ken has lung cancer but has had a little respite from chemo for a few weeks now. If you are interested, here is a CaringBridge update on Ken. He is still very fatigued, but has been able to work a little bit. It will be wonderful to see them again since I last saw them in May. Doug leaves later this week for his ESPN gig in Auburn, AL. He'll be gone from Thursday-Sunday. That leaves me to do the schlepping for the rest of the week! We also started the college application process last night, which is daunting at best! I think everyone was applying last night because the U of Wisc. system was slow as beans! I was up early this morning to try and fill out more of the application before everyone got back online. I filled out all the pertinent family information, now it's Eldest Son's turn to fill out the meat of the application (i.e. activities, personal questions about why he wants to go to this particular college, etc).

Well, I'm going to sign off. I want to get a few cards made before we have to go pick up my SIL and BIL from the airport. Have a great day!


P.S. Be sure and check out the Verve Blog for Day One of the new Project Parade. It's called Gettin' Krafty, crafty that is with Kraft cardstock! For 10 or so days you'll be able to see all the fun things the Verve Divas have made using the new September stamp sets and Kraft cardstock. I LOOOOOVE kraft cardstock!


  1. Hi Amy, I love keeping up with you and all your boys on your blog. I'm praying the job offers will be pouring in soon. Tell Doug he'll be in my kid's neck of the woods this weekend. They go to that "other" school in Alabama, U of A, Roll Tide!!. I really like the wine tags you made recently. Would you be interested in selling them? If so send some home with Jayne, I think they'd be a big hit in Virginia.

    Thanks! love, Candy in Fairfax

  2. This is adorable, Amy! I love the pink & black - and the liquid applique is so cool. Have fun with your SIL & BIL.

  3. I am sure your lack of interest has to do with the fact that it is gorgeous in MN today!!! :)
    I love that little bunny and with the color combo-its just perfect!

  4. i think your card is way cute!

    since you're going to have fun peeps in town, i hereby give you permission (not that you were looking for it or need it!) to take a blogging break until after Jayne and Ken leave! be sure to take some cool pictures of your time together though, as we readers do like keeping up on your family as well as your craftings.

  5. Really really cute! I love it! This bunny is darling!

  6. Too, too cute! I love the soft pink with the black and white polka dot background- just great with the cute little bunny image (which you did an awesome job on BTW)! Doug chose an awesome time to visit Alabama! The last couple of days have cooled off and the humidity is down!

  7. I TOTALLY FEEL YOUR PAIN ABOUT THE COLLEGE APPS! My daughter is a senior this year, too. We just finished her first one Sunday,too, only hers went to U of MI in Ann Arbor. We have 2 more to go since she finally narrowed her list down to 3, but U of M is her first choice(mine, too, since it is only 30 min. from home!). Good luck to your son and I hope he gets accepted with flying colors!
