High Hopes Challenge #20

Good morning everyone.
I hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was uneventful, just the way I like
it!! LOL. My DH is putting in a new bathroom at our DD's house, so I had lots of peace and quiet. Just me and my girl Layla, hangin' out together.

I happened to notice the counter hit 10,000 last week so I am putting together some candy to celebrate. I hope to have it ready by the middle of the week so be sure to stop back and join in the celebration!!

This is my card for the High Hopes Challenge #20. This weeks challenge is "That Fuzzy Feeling".
This adorable stamp is "Gardener Bunny".

Posted by Picasa

I embossed the image with black and painted it with Tombows. I stamped the little carrots onto the white paper with stazon and also colored them with Tombows. For the "Fuzz" I have used green flower soft on the carrot leaves. Are they leaves?? I am drawing a blank....hmmm, maybe they are stems or just ends. Anyway you know what I! Also for "fuzz" I added some white flocking to the tips of his ears and on the front of his feet. Its hard to see that in the pic. I cut him out and used my shaping tool to round him out a bit and shape his ears. I used foam tape to layer him onto cardstock embossed with my cb folder. I also added some stickles.

I hope you like it.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!

What a great bunny! He looks fantastic. The fuzzy bits are really fab - well done! I really like how you've done the ribbon - I like that middle to corner look.
