Toile Sympathy & baby bunnies

I've been waiting to share this card for quite a while.  It was going to be my contribution to the Seize The Sketch challenge -- how easy this one would have been! -- but then it closed.  Boo hoo!  I do miss it.

Not much to say about this card.  Piece o' patterned paper, sentiment stamped on it, add a Colleen bow and pearls -- boom, done!  I like the muted tones for this occasion.  And, well, heck, I just love a chance to use toile.  :-)


Can I share pics of the CUTEST baby bunnies that came to life in our backyard recently?  A mama bunny gave birth in one of our potted plants (!).  I was about to water the flowers in this pot, saw some dried grass in one, and thought, "How did that get there?"  I lifted it and discovered the two little sweethearts.

Hello!  Who is in here?

Oh!  There are TWO of you!

One sibling was shyer than the other when I nosed in with my camera.

After this delightful discovery, we went away for a mini vacation.  My youngest (the animal lover) and I checked the pot as soon as we returned, but they were gone.  We've not seen any tiny bunnies around our yard, either.  Bigger ones, yes.  Maybe they grow really fast?  I sure know my own kids grow like weeds!

Stamps: Deepest Sympathy - Verve Paper: Vintage Cream - PTI; toile - K & Co. Ink: Walnut Stain - Ranger; Versafine Onyx Black - Tsukineko Fibers: Mottle Brown seam binding - Hug Snug - The Zipper Stop Accessories & Tools: pearls - Queen & Co.

Your sympathy card is very elegant. The pearls are the perfect finishing touch.
Ah, those babybunnies are sooooo sweet and cute!
We've got lots of them in our back and frontyard/ garden, because we don't live in town. :-)
love all creatures out in the forests/ woods and grasslands. :-)

Your bunnies are just the sweetest. They probably do grow fast...hope they don't eat your plants. :-(

That is some GORGEOUS paper! Wouldn't that make a fabulous background stamp? I would LOVE it! It is a wonderful sympathy card. Now about those baby bunnies -- SWEET! We don't get bunnies in our garden, and I'm sure I wouldn't want them eating my plants, but they're so cute I'd just have to put up with it. Adorable! I hope they found a safe new home. It's funny that mama gave birth right there in your potted plant. Thanks for sharing these heartwarming photos, Colleen!
