Some Bunny(ies) to love!!

Morning all!!!  This week has flown by again!  Where are the days going???  Anyway, I managed to get another Just Add Ink Challenge #8 done yesterday.  I’m enjoying their challenges and try to participate each week.  Go have look – play along too!! 

Anyway, this weeks challenge is Just Add Easter!!  I’ve seen some punch art Bunnies around the land of blogs and wanted to try one for myself.  As I was playing yesterday my (soon to be 8) year old daughter, Katelin, wanted to play too.  So this week there is a card from me & a card from Katelin!!

So shall I get on with the bunnies?  My Bunny:

Katelin’s bunny:

The two bunnies together:

And the back of the bunny where you can get your marshmallows from:

Supplies:
1 3/4″ circle punch, 1 3/” circle punch, Large Heart Punch, 3 flower punch, 1/4″ circle punch, 3/4″ circle punch, Round Tab Punch, Circle Scissors, Large & Small oval punches, Word window punch.
On my card i’ve used Urban Oasis & Good Morning Sunshine papers, Katelin used Kalidescope DSP.  My base is Choc Chip, Kate’s is Pixie Pink.  We’ve also both used the mat pack and a piercing tool with to get the holes & a white gel pen to do the “faux” stitching.
Stamps: A good Egg, A Good Neighbour.

I was very proud of my girl, she did good.  I will confess that it was probably the best “session” of creating we’ve ever had. She’s a tad strongwilled and opinionated (& no, I don’t know where she gets THAT from! lol) so we usually have some issues.  Yesterday, she listened and was following instruction beautifully.  She also added the mouth to her bunny and only ate a handful of marshmallows in the process of creating!! I’ll leave you with one more picture of my girl and her card!!

Until next time!
Happy Stamping!!

PS…Have you seen the movie Ella Enchanted?  There is a part in the movie where Ella sings Somebody to love…do you remember?  Anyway, the whole time we were making these cards I couldn’t help myself singing along to the song but changing it from Somebody to Somebunny.  So there is the explanation of the blog title.

My Fabulous Team!!

What a magnificent time I had over the weekend with my Fabulous Team!!!  I has the bestest time with them all and inspiration was flowing freely around!!  It was wonderful spending time with my “old” friends and making new ones of the team members I hadn’t met before!  We laughed, stamped, shared meals and had a wonderful weekend.  Thank you girls for making it great!!  Can’t wait for Mad Inkstincts Team Retreat 2011!!

Here we all are out the front of our “party house”.  It had stopped raining and was “clear” (insert sarcasm). LOL

Until Next time,
Happy Stamping!!

RETREAT!

I’ve been a bit absent this last couple of weeks getting myself ready for my first ever (not last!!) Team Retreat!  There are 11 of us heading up to a beautiful big house at Caloundra on the Sunshine Coast to stamp and eat and possibly consume alcohol (ummm actually pretty sure I will be doing this one!), laugh and stamp some more and generally have a great time!  Jealous?  Oooh YOU could come with us next year!!  Yep. You just need to join my team!!  :-)

Anyway, Retreat starts tomorrow.  I’ve been busily preparing some little surprises for the girls.  Can’t really show too much here because one never knows if there will be spies lurking on the internets & I want to have some surprises!! 

Just a little sneaky peak of the little bag I made up with a couple of things inside.

The tags were computer generated.  My team is called “Mad Inkstincts”. 

I’ll post back early next week to let you all know how we went and maybe, just maybe share some pics!!

Until then,
Happy stamping!!
