Happy Birthday Bright Eyes (High Hopes stamp)

Hi, everyone! Before I share my card, I would like to extend a warm welcome to two lovely new followers - rcraddock910 and Rebecca Sandy - thank you for joining me!

Today I have a birthday card to share.  The adorable bunny stamp is Hare's My Heart from High Hopes Rubber Stamps I've heat-embossed him in white on kraft cardstock and coloured just a few parts with Tombow markers. The birthday sentiment is a wood-mounted stamp from The Old Island Stamp Company, which I've stamped in Ancient Page Cardinal.  I used Spellbinders Scalloped Borders Two for the decorative edges.  The words "Bright Eyes" are made with tiny alphabet stickers.

I was inspired by the challenge over at Scrap it with a Song.  The pop song is Art Garfunkel's Bright Eyes and the video shows a group of bunnies as they go about living their lives; it's quite enchanting yet poignant.  I really like the song and have returned to the blog to play it several times.  It's timely because we have been visited by a bunny in our yard for the last few weeks, and he seems to enjoy our clover so that's what we've called him.  Here's a photo of Clover. Sometimes he brings a friend to frolic with!

"Clover" is a wild bunny who visits our yard to munch

I really like how you have used the border die Kitty, it looks very effective with the red and kraft.

Great photo of 'Clover', we have lots in out garden and paddocks and I love to watch them scampering about without a care in the world - until one of the dogs sees them that is.

Thanks for joining in out birthday celebrations at Allsorts and good luck with the prize draws.

A fabulous card Kitty, such a wonderful design.
You should try to find the film 'Watership Down', that is where the video clip comes from.

Clover is a cutie! We have bunnies around here too but they don't come into the yard because of Rambo of course.

And speaking of cute! That's an adorable bunny on her card - AND a cute, cute card. Love the design on this and the way you did the bunny in white. Precious.


Becca Cruger said...

We've got all sorts of bunnies hopping around our neighborhood. Aren't they fun? Your card is stinking adorable! Love the Kraft and red color scheme.

Hettie said...

l just love this card. It is just gorgeous. Clover is pretty. We have lots of visits by bunnies at our home...some of them are descendants of one of our bunnies who decided she didn't want to live in her hutch and kept escaping!!
That border die is gorgeous too. I have one on order but not sure if it is the same one. Hope it is.
