Bunny ...

Good morning friends ...
I have a couple of things to share ... first of all my card for this weeks challenge at Jingle Belles Rock and it's week 17 ... 
where does the time go?
This week the challenge is all about recycling / upcycling ... not that I really know the difference ... but I do like to re-use whenever I can ... I keep the tiniest and strangest things ... Anyway back to the challenge which is very aptly named Happy Earth Day ... so here is my Earth Day card


My background paper and sentiment is Echo Park ... which I had left over from the gorgeous December kit from Pixie Dust Paperie ... the ' Carte Postale' with the embossed snowflakes is from an old shop bought card ...
The heart and wavy border are both cut from cardboard packaging ... and glittered up a little ... I left the border smooth and 'peeled' the heart ... cardboard cuts brilliantly with the Sizzix


The greenery on the heart is a bit of tinsel from an old decoration and one of my berry stems
the ribbon and little mulberry paper trees are from my stash ... 
So I did recycle / upcycle quite a bit here ... and I plan to use a lot more of that Cardboard to make some gift tags with ...

Now I would like you to meet bunny ...


Isn't she just the cutest? got to show you some more pics of her



She ... is called Yvette ... why? ... well my Mum was called Yvette (her father was french) and as a small child she was nicknamed Bunny ... something to do with a cute little angora hat she wore that her Mother knitted for her ... so my Mum is spending Easter with us after all ...

Have a good one!

i *THINK* the difference between RE- and UP-cycling is that for recycling you just have to USE it again, and for UP-cycling you improve on the original item... so ♥YOU♥ lovely, clever, amazing missus, have UP-CYCLED alllllll over the place on this lovely and enchanting xmas masterpiece! ♥♥♥

(ps: i *LOVE* miss bunny, and i hope you and your mum (& the rest of the fam!) will have the very happiest of easter weekends!!!) ♥

I love this Christmas Card. Each year I try to make my Christmas Cards didn't get to this past year since we were in the process of moving out of state.

What a sweet memory of your Mum.

Thank you for the lovely comments about my daughter and my dog.
