bunny easter cardWhile absolutely adorable, I really didn’t have a need for this Easter basket. However, I did need an Easter card to send to my son, Brady. Even at the age of 30, he loves “cute”, and I knew he would love a Bunny Easter card. So I set off to create one using this basket as my inspiration.

Bunny Easter cardNow this poor little card has been through the mill.  Unfortunately it was the victim of a canine card attack.  It seems a certain little someone has a thing about ribbons, and I guess the Calypso Coral ribbon was calling his name.

Bunny Easter CardGQ is indeed guilty.  So if you notice a  few ripples at the bottom of the watercolored panel, it’s because I cut it off the original card,  ironed it, reused it and recreated everything else.  I wished I would have snapped a few pictures of GQ’s distressing technique.  I’m sure there is a lesson to be learned. I hope you enjoy today’s card!

  1. Boys will be boys and dogs will be dogs. GQ was just trying to put it’s own personal touch to Brady’s card. 🙂 GQ’s sad looking face looks like he’s trying to say that he was sorry for what happened.
    Both card and basket are adorable.

    Oh, Ann! You have such a clever way of telling the Tale of the Rumpled Card! Your Easter card is so lovely, as usual…I love the vellum touch. I think I want to use that on an Easter card I am working on. As always, thank you for your inspiration.

  3. Adorable card and if you had not said anything about the ribbon, you could not tell from the pictures of the card! GQ is adorable, at least when not getting into Mom’s cards and ribbons! Pat’s to all of your fur babies!! Better luck with your next card!

  4. Love that traditional bunny……made me think of Peter Cottontail. Your story about what happened to the card also reminded me of an advertisement about now where the owner asks “did you eat all your treats? and the dog is hanging it’s head in a corner They definitely feel guilt when they are caught.

  5. Funny story…The dog really DID eat your homework, lol! What a stinker!!! I’m sure Brady will enjoy the story behind his adorable card. Easter joy to you!

  6. Cute story, cute card. I love that DTIEF. Does GQ stand for something longer? He’s a handsome boy.
