Bunny bath

I've used a bit of a neglected stamp on this card.  I've just had a wee look through old photos and it seems I haven't used it in around five years, tut tut!

Rats forever

This card features my favourite papers and my favourite animal.  This stamp's part of a set and I wouldn't have known it existed if it wasn't for a comment on my blog, so even strangers are encouraging me in my stamp buying habit ;)

ABC Christmas Challenge - J & K

Time for another challenge over at the ABC Christmas Challenge, and our host is Dorte.  This month the themes are -  

'J for Joy'
  and 
'K for Keep It Simple' 

Our sponsors this month are -

the prize is a £10 voucher

and

DigiStamp Boutique
the prize is a £10 voucher


There's also a prize from Dorte for another lucky winner.

I've combined both themes this month.  I've recently realised I don't have any stamps with the word "Joy" on them, so as the image is from a CD (unusual for me) it was easy enough to add a sentiment onto it before printing.
