Paper Sweeties 25 Days of Christmas Designer Blog Hop!

Can you believe it's almost Christmas!  I hope you have been enjoying all of the awesomeness at Paper Sweeties this month!  25 days of Inspiration and a whole bunch of sales!  Check out the Paper Sweeties Blog here to find out what today's special is!  Here's what I've made for today!


I had stamped a bunch of these adorable stockings from the Dear Santa stamp set and was coloring them in and realized what my eyes were seeing as a carrot was a piece of candy... which makes total sense because WHY would there be a carrot in a Christmas stocking??  Why, indeed!


Maybe because the recipient of the stocking was this adorable bunny from the Hoppy Easter set!  Once I thought of this, I couldn't change the course of this card...lol!  I knew I had to add the bunny and make the candy a carrot and the rest is history.  I stamped the hat from the Snow Friends stamp set and cut two slits in the top that my bunny's ears could slide through... yeah... I cut the ears off... don't think I don't feel bad about it.. 

The Scalloped Circle Frame was perfect as a backdrop.  And I cut out a banner using the Sweet Borders Sweet Cuts and stamped the sentiment from the Merry & Bright stamp set.


Of course I scattered around a few pretty Paper Sweeties sequins.  And to make my bunny fur I colored her with my copics and then used some terry cloth with blending solution and held it over the colored areas for the count of three to add texture.

Cute, right?  Thanks for indulging me with my Christmas Bunny!   Here's the schedule for December's festivities!
