BoBUNNY BLOG HOP! and blog candy!

Hi!!! welcome to the first BB blog hop!


We're announcing our first Guest designer so keep hopping to see who it is.... And we're kicking off our hop with our new Grease Monkey line.


Julia has challenged us to share our fave car...



tho this isn't the sportiest or grandest minivan- I have a 98 venture van- and she still looks this good- we've taken good care of her- and I love love Old Betsy like a member of the family. One day I guess I'll have to give her up- but until then- she's my faithful companion! I've had her since I was pregnant with Alizabeth! She's got over 100,000 miles on her- and has taken us to Florida 3 times, and I can still beat most cars off the line with my 6 cylinders!



leave a comment..let me know your favorite car or dream car

then hop to- Dee's blog


We'll reveal our Guest Designer soon..keep hopping!



Hop to each Bobunny designers blog, leave a comment for every blog and be entered into a drawing for a goodie!! ohhh doesn't that sound great!!




here is a little card eye candy to leave you with today.


I've been pulling out my old stash and am trying to use some of it. Anything that's caught my eye as I sorted I have pulled aside to create with.


this card was hard for me- pastels are not my colors - and I really don't like working with purple much- but I am so ready for spring- so I thought I'd do something with these SEI papers and puffy stickers.


this card uses Bobunny pink snowflake paper, the angels are cut from Daisy D's paper, and I also embossed a Bobunny chipboard circle with my swiss dots folder.


I hand cut the holly- added in those OLD stash tiny buttons and some MM tiny type letters.






lastly is this baby card- I found these K&CO stickers at the bottom of a pile, adding in some K&Co paper, AC thickers glitter letters, MM journaling pullout, and AG ribbon with a Bobunny flower, stuck through the knot with a bead and a pearl head pin.




and finally to share today! I am giving away an awesome amount of blog candy! to help me celebrate my 10,000 blog hit- I should be getting that sometime this weekend- so I want to give away some gorgeous stuff!
among the awesomeness is- 4 sheets of each design of BEAUTIFUL new Anna Griffin paper- including gorgeous flocked butterfly paper! several rubon alphabets, several sheets of adorable flocked stickers, some GORGEOUS packs of floral and 3d embellies, lots of sheets of punch out die cuts, other 3D embellies, some sticker sheets from SRM press, SR letters, a mini album and lots more! I may even add to this for some great super secret suprises for the lucky winner!
to enter- just leave a comment for me sometime in the next week contest runs til noon FRIDAY the 13th dum dum dummmmmm.. oh sorry- got distracted- well it should be someone's lucky day!!!



Have an EXCELLENT FRIDAY!

AngelBear said...

My Dream car would be 1969 Chevy Nova...a fast, muscle car with lots of power. I love muscle cars!

Heidi Y said...

Great cards you made!! My favorite car/SUV would be the Acura MDX. I have a larger SUV and love them, so going a little smaller would be perfect.

It is nothing fancy, but my van is very practical and works perfectly for our family.

I really love your cards, makes me want to start making some. My favorite car is a Dodge Charger.

Ladybug Linda said...

I luv your minivan. We have a 1999van and we use it for trips or when someone else is going with us. It has taken us on some great trips and is great for hauling scrapbook stuff when going to retreats.

Love your cards and your blog. Would love to win some of that good stuff.
Have a great day.

MadcapFrenzy said...

Car: My dream car is a mustang (in red or yellow) or a beetle (in sky blue). When it came to looking for a new car, I wanted so badly to check out my fav cars, but knew I couldn't afford them even if I wanted to, so we ended up getting a Dodge Calibur. It'll do just right for me.
Cute cards today and Awesome blog candy!

never thought of a mini van being a favorite car but hey! if it works for you RUN with it!! Sometimes it's not about the style as much as it is about the function. My little sedan isn't all that snazzy but it runs and is dependable. :)
Cute cards too! Thanks for sharing

Terrie in AZ said...

I just hopped over from your sis's blog. I love finding new sites to visit! My favorite car was my husbands T-top Firebird. LOVED, LOVED, LOVED riding around at night with the wind in our hair!

Elaine said...

Fabulous cards! Even though you don't like pastels, the spring card is great! My favorite is probably that baby card though! Love the flower and the pin (I never use pins and need to). Anyway, favorite car -- I mean dream car - is an old model Azure - they aren't very common and husband said a personal mechanic would be in order if I could find the mechanic, MAYBE I'd be able to get the car...he's joking of course. I first saw the car 4 years ago and just fell head over heels for it and have been dreaming for about 4 years since then!! I've never seen one since then (on the road/driving I mean...they're at showrooms and in pictures but not in real life).

Toni Lightwood said...

Love your blog, and that cookie you made is sweet!!! I also enjoyed seeing the pics of your daughter's room!

Maria said...

My dream car would have to be a Chrysler 300 C.

Eveline said...

Hi, 10.000 hits! wow! Awesome blog candy.
My favorite car is a Mercedes CLS. We drive a Volvo V70, 5 years old but I think we will drive this car the next 5 years as well, it's super comfortable and very safe.
Eveline.

Cindy said...

My favorite car? Since I can't afford a 1969 Shelby Cobra mustang, I guess it would have to be my Ford extended cab pickup. Gets me around great in the snow!
Awesome blog candy! A thank you to your sis, who sent me to your blog! Cindy Frazier

Staci G said...

my current car looks a lot like yours - 2003 Oldsmobile silhouette mini van w/over 110K miles on it - still runs great!

Connie from Kansas said...

When I was younger I loved Chevelles...My first two cars were both '68 models- A 327 Chevy Malibu and an SS 396...For the last 10 years I have been driving a Black Pearl Dodge Grand Caravan and I don't want to give up mine either...It has taken me over 115,000 miles and is a comfortable easy riding and driving vehicle.

Jacquie said...

My first car was a Ford Escort
Gia, I really loved that car

Sandy said...

Adam and Shanna Family Blog said...

While I'm dreaming, I may leave a different car on each blog! I'd take a BMW M7 as well! This is such a fun game!

Heidi said...

My first car was a Hyundai Excel hatchback. The only thing that endears it to me is that it was my first car, there was a sense of independance that came with owning it as well as responsibility. Now, I would love to buy a Toyota Tacoma.

Jodee said...

Bouncing along on the blog hop! Love the cards you shared!

sandee said...

You may not love pastels, but you did an excellent job with the colors! My favorite car is my car..cause it's paid for! lol

Yikes, I forgot, Thanks for the AWESOME Give-Away! I just did my first Purple LO with Lime green and the colors look great together!

Jackie Hart said...

Guess I'm boring, but I love my current car--a red Saturn Vue. We also own a Corvette, so it would be fun to use the new collection with some pictures of greasy guys!

AUsome mom said...

WOW! You just continue to amaze. Everything you are creating these days is just fabulous! I love all the bright colors you use on your cards. I'm also amazed at how you take a piece of paper and make miracles happen with it. Beautiful job, Kris.

Deb said...

your designs are beautiful. I've hopped over from Kelly's new blog. It's wonderful to see so much inspiration!

Debbi said...

What's not to love about this giveaway? My first car was a 1963 Ford Galaxie and it was not new at the time. Does that say something about my age? Right now I drive a Tahoe and love it (especially with all the grandchildren) Have a blessed day.
