Two Things

First Thing
Crumbs, I've had a game and a half trying to get signed in to Blogger this morning!  Anyone else having trouble again?

Anyhoo, I'm here now.  Last night I couldn't settle until I had undertaken some drastic surgery to my disasterous Little Festive Robins card which involved a large pair of scissors and a craft knife.  Here is the new version of it, which I am much happier with and as it is using mostly Basic Grey papers from the Jovial pad I shall enter it into the Basic Grey challenge - Anything Goes

Second Thing
Some time ago, after a day out to London visitng the museums, Toad and I found a little stray at the railway station on the way home.  It was dark, it was cold, and there laying in the bus lane was a child's toy rabbit.  It was yellow and plush and oh so cute.  Being the softie that he is, Toad picked it up out of the road before it could get run over and sat it on one of the benches in the bus shelter.  As the bus drove away I looked back and this tiny little thing looked so lonely and it mad me feel quite sad.  On the way home we made up little stories about why that rabbit was out on its own so late at night and by the time we got home it had a whole series of adventures under its belt.

So what brought all this to mind?  I was rummaging in my Sugar Nellies box and found my Little Cotton Rabbit stamp and the memory of that lonely little bunny came flooding back.  I wonder what it's up to these days .......

Hugs, Sxx

What are you like woman? I can't believe you changed the card, however I like this alot and the papers are lovely and tie in with the image really well. Job well done. And the little rabbit was hopefully found - that cotton bunny image is just adorable LOL. Hugs, Claire x

I must admit, going back to last post and back here again. I like this one best.Good move...gorgeous papers, these make the wee birdies stand out ...perfect.
Lovely wee bunny,I'm sure he found a new home if the old one has gone, and he will be tucked up nice and warm with a new family.

Flicking back and forth between the two cards I have to admit that the 2nd does look better with the darker background.
Love your story about the poor bunny. Bless Mr Toad for picking her up. I'd like to think her owner came back looking for her and got the surprise of their life seeing her sat in the bus shelter waiting for them. Debs xx

Having flipped back and forth from the original to the new version, have to say I like the new version better. I think the darker background sets of your hard work better! Loved the bunny story, I think that bunny is hitching rides with sympathetic bus drivers as he hunts for his family!
