Hoppy Birthday Bunny Card

hOpPy Birthday!

Two of my friends have birthday this week! Gail turned 50 on Sunday and Donna is turning... something-or-the-other today! (I don't know whether her age is a secret, so let's just leave it that).

It's so nice seeing those young chicks follow in my tracks by a year (and a half or two), and Gail saying goodbye to her 40-somethings and finally turning 50! Welcome to a new decade, filled with awesomeness, glitter, and many more wrinkles! Hey, we've earned them all! :-D

Gail has this bunny hop running on her blog to celebrate, and here is my contribution - a colourful card with the adorable Bonny Bunny that Donna designed for Rubber Dance!

Bunnies might not like tulips, so I added some carrots for her in the bouquet: 

No birthday girl/woman is too old for glitter on her BD crown:

So with this, I wish Gail a happy belated 50th birthday (I know she celebrates all week)
and Donna a happy birthday today
and many more awesome years to come for you both!

♥ ♥ ♥  Love you! ♥ ♥ ♥

I'm entering my bunny card to Gail's hopping challenge:

Thanks for looking!

You may leave birthday wishes to Gail and Donna below,
and praises to me for a card well made, of course ;-)

Altered Kettle - published in Craft Stamper magazine!

I had an article about how to alter an old kettle in the April issue of the Craft Stamper magazine (which came out in March). If you have that issue, check pages 22-25 :-)

Here it is again, although without the step by step instructions - you need the magazine for that.


Interested in the magazine? Go to to buy subscriptions, for single copies, or the digital version from

For my kettle, I used colours that match our April challenge over at the Rubber Dance blog - as well as our theme this month; altered stuff. You may choose between the two (colours or theme), or make a combo of both: 

You have the whole month to join.

The kettle stands on my workdesk, filled with paint brushes I use - so it's not just for decoration.
During Easter, however, I've filled it with colourful tulips and placed it on our dining table.
Stamped used on my kettle are the Crazy Flowers from Rubber Dance.

Thanks for looking!
