Some Bunny Loves You

Hello everyone.  I'm sure at least one person has missed me, huh?  Surely?  LOL.  I have been so busy trying to find table linens, a rug, etc. for my new kitchen that I haven't really taken much time to craft.  And I miss it.  But, sooner or later, I will find the things I need for my kitchen and get back to the scrapbook room.  The problem is that the colors on my wall are pale yellow and a blue/gray.  The blue/gray is the culprit.  When you see something blue, the paint looks gray.  When you find something gray, the paint looks blue!  So frustrating.  I will never, ever paint my walls without buying my accessories first.  Or, at least I will shop to see what is available.  I have been to 20 stores, and haven't found the right accessories yet!  Anyway, for the reason I am here ---- today is the reveal over at Stuck On U Sketches for our new die cut challenge -- you guessed it -- bunnies!  I made this little treat bag with candy to showcase this adorable bunny.  Here are the details:

For the label that folds over and closes the bag, I used the label on page 39 of the handbook for the Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge cut at 3 1/2".  I stapled it on (and then covered the stapled part on the back with a punched scalloped oval shape that can be written on).  For the bunny, I used the Easter bunny on the Martha Stewart Seasonal cartridge cut at 4".  I actually cut it twice and popped it up with foam tape.  The sentiment was printed from my computer and punched with a 1 1/4" circle punch and a 1 1/2" scalloped circle punch.  I then added a little bow I purchased months ago at AC Moore and a tiny Recollections rose.

Ok, I DO love the project but I'm just dying to talk about the kitchen so...LOL!
Ok, well the reason I have posted pictures yet is that my BIL hasn't' come to put on my very expensive hardware AND I don't ever get to go out and shop and therefore have NOTHING on my walls. My hubby likes it like that, LOL, but I want something but don't want just anything. So its unfinished and I feel your pain (minus the joy of hitting up so many stores...Lord that sounds nice!) LOL!
But I know what you mean (the exterior of the house is that..is it blue? it is grey?)

Ok...I'll stop talking...LOL! Oh wait...that birthday card, AMAZING!!!!!
