Easter Bunny for AAACards and a little more blog candy

Hi Everyone.  Happy Wednesday.

I am sorry I missed posting last night, but I was still working at 11pm and was back at my desk this morning at 6am prepping for a presentation and just totally missed out on getting my post up.

A reminder - and clarification..  (thanks, Colleen...)   the blog candy runs through FRIDAY the 25th... not Thursday the 25th!   Can't remember what blog candy is on offer?  Check out my post from Monday.  It has been wonderful reading all of your comments.... Ive also enjoyed revisiting some of the photos I have posted that you have identified as your favorites.   

So... tonight's card was made for the challenge across at AAA cards.. in fact, it is their fault that I went looking for an Easter Bunny digi download!  I know... this is a peep... and I went looking for a bunny... don't even ask how my mind works :-)

Monday's card had a paired down bunny - this bunny is much bigger.    I mixed him with Pink Pirouette ink from Stampin' Up! and some DSP that I had left over from my March Simon Says Stamp card kit.   I thoroughly enjoyed coloring him in with my Copic Markers!

Here's my card:

Pink easter bunny (1 of 1)

You know... I am not a "pink person" but I am in love with this pink bunny card.   It might be a result of the never-ending winter... and the fact that I am longing for some soft-Spring colors... or it could be that this card was made for a bestie who loves pale pink.... whatever the reason.... I love it.

So, let's play spot the difference.   Can you see what the difference is between this bunny and the one from this post?

Go on... take a look, you know you want to :-)   I'll wait for you?     If you do go take a look and want to leave me a comment letting me know what the difference(s) are, I will put all of those commenters into the proverbial comment bucket and draw a winner for a little more blog candy.

Want to know what the blog candy is?   Well, it will be a surprise :-)  But I promise it will be worth it.  It will definitely have something to do with card making... and will definitely have something to do with stamping... but I will keep you in suspense until tomorrow.

So.. you have two chances for blog candy already on my birthday week.  Leave a comment noting your favorite photograph o Monday's post.... or leave a "spot the difference" comment on tonight's post and I will pick a winner for both on Friday night.

On a personal note

OK... this one is for Jeanne.   For my birthday I received a new table for the mud room.  I found this amazing company in Chicago who go around and find old buildings and barns that are being torn down and they recover and reuse the wood.    Just the sort of thing that really gets me excited.   AND... they are amazing value and, after receiving the table I can tell you... they are amazing quality.  I'll share a photo with you later this week!   

What's this got to do with Jeanne?  Well, Jeanne asked for more photos of my kitty cats and Bailey decided to make himself the perfect focus of a photograph.   When we unpacked the box, we took out the paper they had used for wrapping the table.......  Here's what happened:

Can you see Bailey in this photo?

Seeacat (1 of 1)

Nope... he is very well hidden among all that paper......  Now let's try?

Seeacat (1 of 1)-2

He was having waaaay too much fun.   He only got bored of diving in and out of the pile of paper after about an hour!

Now... for those of you who come to my blog for wildlife pics.  Here's one for you:

Tomturkey (1 of 1)

He was trying oh so hard to attract the females, but they were much too interested in eating!  I can't imagine all of the energy that it takes to stay like this for so long.

The females weren't impressed... and neither were the other males!

Tomturkey's friends (1 of 1)

I'll be back with another card tomorrow.  In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers to those of you who need a little lift tonight.

Of course I had to look! This bunny has a beautiful big bow, which I love! Gorgeous card, Jaydee. Love to see pics of your kitty too, they are such fun companions!

Linda Rodgers

Thanks for the animal pics...both tame and wild. You're right--I love your cards, but I really come for the other pics.


Hi! The big bow tie, the slightly more vibrant nose, the pink is slightly darker ... both are stunning and you do such a beautiful job of colouring them!

And, to answer two questions in one post, my favourite photo(s) are the owls (cannot remember when it was posted but it was so crisp and vivid), the pictures of your lovely home (each and every one) and today's, with that sweet kitty cat. Too many to narrow it down just to one!


Oh your bunnies make me smile! First bunny was smaller and the pink accents were paler. Today's bunny is larger and has a very pretty dark pink bow. The nose is also tad darker pink. How funny to see wild turkeys. That is one type of wildlife we share. Around here they will walk right down the middle of the street! No way I could pick just one of your wildlife photos. They are all amazing. Belated birthday greetings!

That bunny is so elegantly done.
Love your cat's antics, and your turkeys. 😊


Such a pretty card and cute little bunny
this one has little whiskers; the other does not
this card has a bow
lines in left ear are darker/highlighted

Great photo. TY. I'd say that male turkey kinda got the cold shoulder from everyone.
Have a fun and enjoyable day and thank you for this giveaway opportunity

It is the big bow tie. Love this card with the darling bunny. And Bailey is just too cute. I know he had fun with all that paper. Can't wait to see your table.

Jill V

Fabulous pics - my cats love all kinds of packaging too!
Great Easter card - I agree that pink is a great background colour for Spring cards! Thanks so much for playing along with us at AAA Cards! Jill

Sabrina Radican

Such a darling card!! This bunny has a big beautiful bow where as your other bunny didn't,This one is a tag where as the other is a card,this bunny has a shadow under him and the other bunny does not.

Evelyn B

I saw the bow tie right away! It is still the cutest bunny and I do love the pink paper as a backdrop. Thanks for the bunnies cards. Love them!


Spot the difference - the bow and the whiskers! Cute card, I'm not a big fan of pink either but it perfectly suits this card. Bailey is absolutely adorable. So typical, they love playing in the boxes and wrappings while a bunch of toys bought just for them are sitting nearby. Or maybe that was just my spoiled rotten cat!

Hi Jaydee! Love your pretty Easter bunny cards! This one is gorgeous in the soft pale pink. That's my favorite shade of pink and really the only shade of pink I'll wear. Reminds me of my ballet classes a long time ago. ; ) Your bunny image is adorable, as the one before. This one has a bow and bigger heart shaped nose. Your coloring is perfect. I bet it's harder to shade the bunny white than it looks! I don't do much with Copics, I need a class. If I do get adventurous and pull them out, it's for a small flower.

Mr. Turkey is quite the showman! And sweet Bailey, how can you resist those amber eyes? I love his expressions. Bet he was ready for a long nap after playing for an hour. Can't wait to see your table! I hope your work hours are shorter today. : )


Such a cute photo of Bailey...cats always think that every box (no matter the size), basket, bowl etc...that comes in the house is their new bed or playground. Don't you just love it!
The difference in the bunnies are the bow is o this one and the whiskers show up more. I love pink so this one is my favorite but love both cards.

Claire Broadwater

Jaydee, I just love to ready your posts! The bunny is missing the big pink bow and whiskers! Both are precious! I love all your photos. I would love to know about the place in Chicago that uses old barn wood. That makes me excited, too! I love that type of furniture! Have a wonderful Easter, My Friend! XX

Jeanne H

Love your Bailey! How much fun he had. Thanks for the pictures...made me smile. OK, about the bunny. I noticed the bow-tie difference and the fact the first one was fussy cut out. Also today's bunny has whiskers. Great cards, both of them. AND I love pink!
