It's a Bunny Hop!! Linky Post

Hello.  Welcome.  It's my birthday!!  Soon!!!!  I will be the big 50.  So I decided I wanted to celebrate in style.  The party is booked and I am hoping for CAKE!!  Actually, that's a certainty.  But I decided I also wanted to share and celebrate with my blogland friends so I have organised a Bunny Hop!


  And in the spirit of birthdays and the giving of gifts I have prizes!!  A big super thank you to my sponsors who have generously supplied some bunny themed goodies for me to give away.  I have also found a few bunny themed things to add to the pile of carats.

My heartfelt thanks to the following amazing companies who have offered some of their wonderful bunny themed stamps and/or dies for me to give away to you!!


Rubber Dance is a Norwegian stamp company.  All the deeply etched red rubber stamps are lovingly handmade by the owner Bibi in her home based workshop and sold unmounted.  Rubber Dance have supplied this beautiful Bonny Bunny stamp set for me to give away.  Thanks Rubber Dance Stamps.

Crafty Individuals is based in the North East of England and is co-owned by artist and designer Jean Hardy and professional photographer Malcolm Noble.  They primarily design and make rubber stamps for the craft industry and also stock a range of other arty and crafty products.  Crafty Individuals have supplied two pairs of long eared stamps for me to give to two lucky hoppers.  Thanks so much Crafty Individuals.

Poppy Stamps is based in Seattle producing a line of rubber stamps and craft dies from the creative people at Memory Box!  Poppystamps have generously offered to send one lucky person their Cupcake Party stamps and the brand new Easter Bunny Egg die.  How cool is that!!  Thanks so much Poppystamps.

Beverley Brown is the owner and designer of Uniko clear stamps and paper crafting products, a small family run business.  Being an avid paper crafter and stamp addict for many years, plus completing a BA (Hons) in Textiles & Surface Design, Bev decided back in February 2012 to combine her passions and launch her own range of stamps, designer dies & digital paper collections.  Uniko's quality photopolymer clear stamps are made in the UK and are thicker than ‘standard’ clear stamps to minimise the chance of tearing & damage.

Uniko has generously offered one lucky winner their pick of any in stock £4 stamp.

OK, so what you got to do to be in with a chance of winning some bunnies??  
Here's me rooles........
  • You must create a card with a bunny, rabbit or hare as the focus.  A tiny little bunny hiding in a corner don't count.  Bunny shaped cards welcome.  Your card must be new and not published anywhere online before the 12th April.
  • It's my birthday, but the cards don't need to be birthday themed.  As long as we can see the bunny/bunnies it's good.  
  • Your bunny can be stamped, paper pieced, die cut etc, but please no digi's. 
  • You can link up to three cards, as long as each one is different and in a separate blog post.  I would love you to include my badge in your post, or better yet put it in your sidebar.  Bunnies like company!!  Hoping to see lots and lots of bunnies.
  • You can join up to 5 challenges, including this one, with your card.  So max 5 links if you want to still be eligible for my prize draws.
  • If you would like to send me your bunny themed card by snail mail I will be hopping all over the place with joy, but it is not a requirement for winning prizes.
 I will be featuring my sponsors in blog posts over the next couple of weeks, along with some inspirational makes and also details of my own prizes so don't forget to check the Bunny Hop posts for more fun and maybe surprizes.....  My blog will undoubtedly be filled with bunnies, starting with my first post in a little later this evening......

Ready, Set, Hop...........

  4. Hoppy Birthday! What a fun way to celebrate! My mother once gave my daughter a pet bunny as a birthday gift. It a long story but Fluffy the bunny went from humble pet to eventually work as a show bunny.

  7. This is such a fun way to hop into the Big Five O! I hope many people will hop along with you and wave those 40s goodbye with lots and lots of bunnies (we all know how quickly they multiply ...). I'll join in with a bonny bunny soon.

  26. wishing you a very Happy Birthday!

    I heard about your blog hop through Fiki and made a card for her husband for his upcoming surgery. sorry I won't be able to send it to you, but hopefully it's okay since I'm sending it to him instead. ;)

    I don't have any bunnies as pets, but we do have quite a few wild ones that live in our big backyard and out at the camp where my husband is Director.
