Our February New Release Mini:

Spring Joy

Isn't this little bunny the cutest? It made me REMEMBER WHEN my sister and I were little we each had a bunny. Mine was "Bugs" and hers was "Bunny". The thing I REMEMBER about Bunny was that Bunny had bright orange pee, and when we had to clean out his cage it was really yucky!!! When we got our rabbits, I didn't know that rabbits scream when they are scared. We kept them in a hutch in our garage to protect them from the elements and one time our dog got into the garage and was barking at them, and we heard the most piercing scream come from their cages. They were fine, just letting us know they were upset. I REMEMBER WHEN my kids were little they had a bunny named Sundae, and my son Josh even had a wild bunny for awhile. When Sundae died we tried to get another rabbit. Sundae had been an extremely calm sweet rabbit and when we got Midnight, we expected the same thing. Midnight turned out to be an extremely anxious rabbit that bit all of us so we had to find her a new home.

I stamped the bunny from the blessings set 2 times. Once on the green dp and once on a piece of tan cardstock. I cut the tan bunny out and layered him on the green. I know that these are supposed to be Easter lillies and supposed to be white, but I REMEMBER WHEN we lived on our farm, there were day lillies that grew all along the roadside that were bright orange and pink, so that is why these are colored this way. I hope you are having fun on this blog hop.

I love this song by Alan Jackson called Remember When. It always makes me cry a little bit, but I love it!!
