Chocolate Bunny

The other night as I was trying to fall asleep I got an idea for a card. What else would I think about when trying to sleep? I remembered the chocolate Easter bunny my mom and dad sent me (I still get a little Easter basket because they're so sweet!) and thinking about a cute bunny stamp I have. And then I thought about biting into that chocolate bunny and I had my idea! A bunny stamp with a bite out of it. Who said bunnies needed to be white?

It took me a couple stamps to get two images I was happy with. I pondered masking the bite out, but it didn't work all that well. It was much easier to just grab some edging scissors and cut scallops.

I had to continue my pink and brown kick. I am just addicted to salmon and brown. Plus I was thinking chocolate. I love this based DP. The EK success Beach line is so much fun! And double sided with contrasting patterns (green stripes in this case).

A silly little saying was a must, although not quite as clever as Far Side cartoons. This is probably destined for a friend of mine teasing her about all the goodies she will eat over Easter.

Stamps: bunny by All Night Media
Ink: brown and black by ColorBox
Paper: blue and white cardstock, Beach Bursts by EK Success, chocolate polkadot, cream cardstock
Other: peach shimmer brads by MM, brown polkadot Offray ribbon, dimensionals, watercolour pencil crayons, corner rounder, pinking shears.

Needless to say after making this card my Easter bunny seemed to disappear. Oops! But it was so good! I looooooove Bernard Callebaut dark chocolate!

As an extra present for Easter my parents bought me some great tins with glass lids for my embellishments! I love them. They came from Lee Valley of all places! They have a variety of sizes and combos. I started out with a set of 12 of the largest flat tins and some higher ones that look a bit like spice tins or salt and pepper shakers. Great for bulldog clips and things like that. Might have to get more little flat tins sometime! So much fun to play around and figure out how to reorganize my goodies!
