New Thank You Cards

My lovely friend, JennyBunny of JennyBunnyCreations, sent me a lovely package with earrings (which I did not do a great job photographing, btw) and bread when I was feeling down. She's a lovely friend. I wanted to send her a little something for all the kindness that she's shown me. I didn't want it to be some boring generic gift that I could give anyone. I wanted it to be special and wonderful like her. So, I came up with the idea of making thank you cards for her business. I think it's always nice to get a little card from someone thanking you for your order.

I was creatively blocked for a LONG time with all the stresses that I have going on right now. But I kinda had an idea I wanted to get across. I wanted it to be pink and black. I wanted it to say thank you. And most importantly, I wanted it to have a bunny on it.

I really struck gold with the bunny. I thought I would have to settle for something cartoony and cutesy, but I found a very realistic stamp of a bunny. That made me very happy. The card stock was a bit more of a challenge. I couldn't find the exact pink I wanted. I guess, in hindsight, I should have used a purpley fuschia but what can I say, hindsight is 20/20. And by golly, black card stock is expensive. Which is really annoying! I might have to start ordering it online. I also tried stamping the bunny on a printed background but that kinda made it look like crud instead of being super cool like some cards I've seen.

If you are JennyBunny and you want to be surprised, do not look any further!
