Happy Bunny Birthday


Just spent the morning packing for Saturday’s Stamp-a-Stack – with lots of help from my Mum. Thanks, Mum! We’ve packed up such fun goodie bags that I wish I was going! Oh wait, I am... but you know what I mean.

But back to today’s post. Despite being (relatively) on top of things for Saturday, I realised I don’t actually have many Mini catalogue samples to display so, last night, I quickly rattled off four cards with that really cute set, Perfect Postage.

This one I thought was really sweet. Very simple, very clean and very easy, too. But it’s made a bit special by the addition of the printed brad over the top of the balloon, and the tiny clear button. The brads, the buttons and the stamp set were all freebies I received from Stampin’ Up!® recently – I love being a demonstrator!

The Itty Bitty Buttons are designed to go with the Itty Bitty Punches and, as I have possession of those little beauties at the moment, I decided to use them as intended and punched out a tiny flower from a scrap of Elegant Eggplant, stuck it behind and then tied the linen thread through. Cute, eh?

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I love receiving genuine comments - I do get bored of deleting dodgy links though!
