Floral card and Bunnies!

Hello Everyone and lovely to be back after little break away. We had a lovely time with our friends and at the jazz concerts and now we need a rest.  It's lovely to be away, but always brilliant to be back home, especially as I missed my lovely furry boy.

I hope you are all well, but a if not sending you kind thoughts and  gentle hugs.
Thank you one and all for all the lovely comments on my last card, you are so kind. I've not managed around everyone's blogs, but I have seen some wonderful creations on my reading list, so please forgive if I've not been able to keep up with you.

Whilst I was away I found a fabulous craft shop in Edinburgh, Stamper's Grove, a veritable Aladdin's cave, stacked from floor to ceiling with fabulous crafting products, so I bought rather a lot, but I was after the Crazy Cats and Dogs from Tim Holtz which they stocked, so I'm a happy bunny.

My card is not created with anything new, but another of the LOTV beautiful floral images;
I coloured the image with metallic watercolours from Kuretaki, and cut it out with a SB floral die.
Do you know for the life of me I can't remember  the type of flower this is.  Sorry the photo is a bit fuzzy.

Just before I go I wanted to show these furry chaps, and this is for you Cara,

These are rather huge bunnies, all three happily nibbling away on the grass. We visited a Natural Heritage centre and there was a petting zoo and I just fell in love with these guys. It's hard to see from the photos but they are really large.

Anyway, that's me done for now, I hope you all have a good weekend, I'm catching up on the washing and ironing, take care and see you soon,

Such cute bunnies. Glad you enjoyed your trip away and I've visited the stampers grove too and it's amazing! I have also done a couple of workshops there too which I've loved! Maybe the flower is a hyacinth ??? Not good at my flowers!! Love the sentiment on your very pretty card x

Cara said...

Bunnies! I may have squealed outloud at their floofy gorgeousness. Possibly New Zeland Whites and Continental Giants?
Love your card, it has such a charming feel about it. I'm guessing that the flowers are lilacs. Great to hear that you had a nice trip. I think Stampers Grove exhibited at Happy Stampers, seem to remember buying some bargain distress crayons from them!

Hi Kate
Will you slow down with all this blogging as its difficult keeping up lol!
Your gorgeous flowers look like lilacs, though you're not supposed to have them in the house.
Sound like you need a holiday after your holiday lol!
