You're brilliant
Silver anniversary for Cas-ual fridays

Ears to you for FabFridays and blog candy alert

Hi Everyone.  Happy Monday.

Fabfridays have a great color challenge going on at the moment.  I looked at the colors and immediately thought of spring.

Fab Fri Logos-008I think it's a great color scheme and knew what I wanted to make with it.  I decided to have a little fun with Ears to You, but, because I am such a literal person, I had issues making the bunnies any other color than the ones they are in real lift.  But, then again, bunnies don't have patterns on their coats either, so I decided I had to get over it and have some fun :-)

Here's what I came up with:

Fabfridays (1)
The one thing I absolutely had to do?  Give them eyes!  I know... I know... but they just looked odd without them.  :-)   Isn't it a great color combo though?

You know the drill... pop along to fabfridays and check out the fabulous design team and submission cards to get some inspiration - and maybe play along, too!

On a personal note:

No sign of our visitor last night.  I'm hoping he didn't get scared off by the fact that he saw us through the office window.  Also, they started to dig the foundations for the house on the plot next to us today.  Because the ground is frozen they really had to do some major drilling and digging out.  they are building a nearly 6,000 square foot house... Yep, it's enormous!  So, it's a pretty big hole they had to dig.  The cul de sac is going to be very busy over the next few months and the tranquility of the day will be taken over by the sounds of building all the way through spring and summer.  I'm hoping that kitty didn't get scared off by those activities, too.

Now, I have a little blog candy to add to the others that I've already packed up ready to send out.

What do you have to do for the blog candy and what is it?  I know those are the questions on your mind.  Well, I thought we should have a little fun.   Some of you will remember the fabulous stamp that Lou bought me when he was in Oz... the Emu... if you don't remember, you can check it out on this post.  Because it is such a fun stamp, I thought it deserved some fun sentiments.  Now, I can see it being used for all sorts of things, so I am looking for some inspiration from you, my lovely blog readers.

All you have to do is leave me a message with a suggested sentiment.  It can be any sentiment, one from an existing stamp set you own, one you have made up, one your DD/DS/DH/SIL/FIL/MIL thought of for you.  It can be funny, sarcastic, sentimental - anything!   I will draw a winner from the suggestions and the winner will get a My Favorite Things die.  The die is called mini rolled roses... there's a pic of these dies below.  Cute, huh?

Such sweet and adorable bunns, Jaydee! Those colors DO cry out "SPRING!". What a fun, delightfully spring-y card! :o)

Oh dear. I hope your little friend is okay. He's seems a skittish baby so I'm thinking you may be right about the digging disturbing him. Poor little thing. And, may I say, great googly mooglies that's one heck of a house!! I'm sorry your peace will be disrupted for a while. That's really stinky.

Have a great Tuesday!

P.S. Hi Lou! :o)


Hi Jaydee:
Ok - I have 3 different sentiments for your awesome Emu stamp:

A Little Get-Well Poem From Me -
Work on getting well, don't you ever quit, or I'll be there in person
To give you lots of ...
(then on the inside of the card)
(what did you think I was gonna say?)

On the inside of the card:
See, there are things more frightening than having another Birthday!

On the inside of the card:
Sometimes, you just don't feel like yourself!
Get Well Soon

I found all of these sentiments from cards at Target. Our neighborhood has a once a month birthday lunch or dinner and we all bring funny cards! It's great fun to take home 15-20 cards and reread them!

I really enjoy your blog! Also, I have a granddaughter named Jadie! Her parents are both pilots and she was named after a control tower in Oklahoma!


cute Hoppy Easter card. Your bunnies are adorable.

Hope we're allowed to enter more then 1 sentiment in our comment cause I do have a couple I would like to add.
'Here's looking at you kid'.
'I gotta get a new barder'.
'Define Cute'
'Very interesting point you have; Step closer and lets discuss it further.'
'What do you mean you're getting a cheetah!'

I am loving these bunnies! How cute to make them peeking through the grass! Well done. And I feel your pain with the construction next door. Our neighborhood has been a construction zone for the last year and with one lot left to build we are all ready for it to be over and our quiet neighborhood returned to normal! I hope your construction guys are more considerate than ours have been LOL! Thanks for sharing with us at Fab Friday!

Mindy Backes

Ok, this is seriously cute and I love those bunnies! Great idea for this color challenge! Thanks for playing at Fab Fri!


Hi there! My suggestion for the alternative sentiment is: Really?



as I tell my daughter, sometimes the message is all in how you say it.

Stef Perry

I love your cute bunnie card, lounging in the grass under those nice fluffy white clouds. Very fun!

Your emu, now she's looking like the sassy sort, so how about a Bette Davis quote "I'd luv to kiss ya, but I just washed my hair". It was fun trying to think of something!
