In Case He Hates The Pink

Had a little panic about the Valentine card that I had made for Toad (here) - what if it really is too pink and he hates it but is too sweet to say anything?

So...... I made him another one (he will get both) to be on the safe side:


I really am useless at checking stamp names, but in my head this one is called Love Bunny.  I am certain that it is by Penny Johnson, coz you can just see a tiny "Penny" under his foot!  I've painted him with distress inks and matted him on a sheet of Basic Grey plain red.  The black and white papers are from a gorgeous Dovecraft pack that, oh the shame of it, I had not even opened and I've had them ages.  You might be seeing a few more of these now.  Gold peel off borders from stash, and Martha Stewart heart border punch on a scrap strip of the Basic Grey.  Never throw away those skinny offcuts - you'd be amazed what you can use them for.

I'll let you know next week what his verdict is on both cards!

Hugs, Squirrel xx
