The new challenge at Shopping Our Stash is called, "Here Comes Peter Cottontail" and if you guessed we'd like to see Easter cards, you're 1/3 correct... we'll also take Passover greetings; OR anything with a bunny on it. So there are plenty of ways to go. I'm representing Team Bunny!

I've been longing to make some big collages, but there just isn't enough time in a day; so I decided to settle for making a collage card. This sweet bunny came from a very tattered, garage-sale copy of a Little Golden Book. He's inhabiting a background made from torn vintage paper, beautiful trading stamps that Stephanie found at a thrift store, and not very much in the way of official papercrafting product, I'm afraid; except for several older, out of print Eyelet Outlet Washi styles, and a bit of Shabby Shutters Distress Oxide ink around the edges. I used my ancient We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper though, and quite a bit of Scotch Create Gluestick... does that count? I had so much fun making my bunny card that I didn't want to stop collaging, so I made a few more cards:
I found this canary on a swing in an ancient, falling-apart book about pets while I was looking for bunnies, and I couldn't resist him. He was kind of small for an A6 card, so I filled in with a rose illustration from the same book.
But then I found ANOTHER rose illustration... and a couple of really nice butterflies; also I had leftover torn bits of sheet music, foreign text and dictionary paper that were too small to keep, but too big to throw away, so I thought I might as well glue them onto a background. Collage-making often snowballs in this manner, I find, lol.
Hop (like a bunny!) over to SOS and see what the rest of the crew have created, then start planning what you'll link up with us this fortnight!
