Bonnet Bunny....

This week's challenge at Penny Black Saturday is Snow Much Fun. Well I don't own one PB Christmas/snow stamp. I refuse to even look in the Christmas catalogs. I decided I wouldn't use the Christmas stamps enough to justify buy a bunch. And I don't even have to look to know there would be a bunch to get. I'd rather get ones you can use all the time. (Plus I already picked out my Christmas card stamp for this year)
So I thought I could make this a Christmas card and just add snow at the bottom or something. So I started with my stamp of course and then picked out the pattern paper (it's My Minds Eye: Festive Signature Christmas line) I should be able to make it Christmas like right? Wrong who was I kidding that cute rabbit screams Spring!! So no card for the challenge this week. Oh well I think the card turned out adorable.
I've also discovered I really like the look of the circle stamps but don't have that many. Well this one is a brush I picked up at Designer Digitals. You can size it to the size circle you want and print out how ever many you want. How cool is that? And you know the best put it doesn't take up any room. It's stored on my computer. Even better I thought. Oh and they have a bunch to choose from. Brushes are super!
Also Katharina is starting her own stamp company Whiff of Joy (coming soon). How exciting is that!!! She's had a couple of previews on her blog and they are super cute!! She also has Elisabeth Bell as one of her designers and you know I LOVE her stuff. So I'll be heading to the new store a lot I'm sure. So anyways she's having a Guest Designer call. All you have to do is use the sketch she has provided (I have used it on the card here). So head over and check it out.
