You're the best...

Happy Thursday everyone! For a short week (we didn't go back to school until Tuesday) this one has felt very long. It's been hard for everyone in my family to get back into the routine- early mornings, homework, swim team, work deadlines- I think I'm more tired than before the break!

The last few evenings I've been finishing up some projects that I'll show  you over the next few days, most of them using images from my friend Zlatoena. Her digital images can be found on Etsy and some of the images have been turned into real stamps by The Cat's Pajamas.

I absolutely love her bunnies and there are so many cute ones to love! This one could be used for Valentine's but I decided to use him for a special thank you card, since that is my immediate need-lol! I resized the image in Photoshop, printed him onto Whisper White card stock then colored him with Copics. I wanted him to be a white bunny, so I colored around his ears with a little of the lightest blue to make them stand out.

After I cut out the image with a square nested die, I left the die in place and used it as a guide to draw a black line border around the image- that made the world of difference! The image was layered onto an eyelet square die cut piece and finished with a computer generated greeting (with all the stamps I have, I couldn't find a greeting that suited me- go figure!).

The inside came about kind of accidentally, but I liked the way it turned out so I left it- sometimes the best things happen that way!

Hope your day is going quickly- one more day until the weekend! Stop back tomorrow for a look at a sweet baby card...
