Bobunny Blog Hoppin!

hello hello today! We are blog hopping with Bobunny to lead you to our guest designer for the month. This designer is amazing and I am so excited that she is working with us this month. I cannot wait for you to meet her.

You should have come from the Bobunny blog to my blog today- yippee I get to start off the fun!! And from here you will go to Julia's Blog!! Julia is an amazing designer as well, and I'm sure she will have just the cutest ideas for you. 

BUT- if you can spare a few moments with me, I would love to share with you some cards I have made this week.

And if you would follow me, and leave me a comment today, I will enter you to win not ONE but TWO blog candy packages I have. Unfortunately my last blog candy winner never came forward, so I am offering up last months' candy as well as a second small package. Just leave a comment to be entered for both prizes. I will allow Canadian entries as well this time, but no other out of country winners please.
I will have two winners- but there is no need to leave double comments. Will pick winner on Tuesday.

Prize #1

Prize #2

On to my cards...
( bobunny paper and letters)

I went for pretty simple on this card. I used leftover letters in colors that went well together to create the alphabet, and I used a crumpled piece of espresso dot cardstock, punched with my ek scallop. I cut out the outline of the U and added the tiny type letters.


This card is similar as I created the 'pattern' background with swirl stickers ( bobunny abbey road). I used a piece of sea green cardstock and stitched it along the edge. I added a cutout sticker from the ( Bobunny Persuasion collection) and then added some matching buttons.


Next is another card using the same colors and ( abbey road) I added some espresso dot cs, punched with my scallop ek punch. I added this piece of plain wood, then added a punch from the espresso dot. Topping that with a rubon flower, I cut one out and added the flower to white cs, cut it out, foam taped it and added it back on. I added a matching ribbon, some Cosmo Cricket letters and a sticker border. I also sewed around the whole card twice.


next I used a little bit more of that sea foam blue and added in some burnt orange. I added in some black dot paper punched with my ek scallop and added them across the card. for the flower- I added my (bobunny delilah) flower to a white punched scallop circle, then foam taped that to a MME gray chipboard flourish, I also added a button and a few bits of matching ribbon. I added some rubon flowers around the large flower, then added my letter stickers ( bobunny alissa) with some Cosmo Cricket letters.


 Lastly for today I have this Jazmyne card. I used grape double dot, adding on a scalloped oval and some icandy 3d stickers. I added a bit of hem tape I plum walnut inked a couple weeks ago and a small button. Finishing off the card is a chipboard word.



thank you so much for coming by today, have a terrific day and happy blog hopping!
