Bunny Front & Back by Reneé Matarese

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing a fun little image from the 4404 – Bunny & Ducky Mini Set and 4537 – Bunny & Ducky Mini Dies.

These adorable little critters were made with a front and a backside so you can use a window or shape to show them peeking through.

When you open the card you the backside of them.  Cute huh?!

Copics used: 

E50, E81, R83, RV52

it's a love thing!

Hello AI Fans!  

I have another fun lovey dovey card to show you that is great for Valentine's Day, for your Anniversary, or even to just say I love you to that special someone in your life! I used #4752 Love Thing Set. Aren't they just too cute??!! They're stamped onto Cryogen White paper and then colored with Copics. The pattern paper is Authentique Smitten, but I can't seem to find it in stock anywhere. It appears it might be discontinued. 

Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit today and hope you have some time this weekend to get crafty! Squishy hugs!!
