Bunnies & Ice Cream

***This is my second post of the day.  For my CASology post please scroll down or 

Hi there!  I have 2 more cards to share with you today. First up is a card using the sketch at the Taylored Expressions Share Joy challenge.  I adore the TE Grumplings animals.  There are a few different sets (all on my wish list of course) but at the moment I only have the Party Grumplings.  I hadn't inked up the bunny from this set so I decided today was his day.  I coloured him with Copics and used some bright patterned paper for the stripes behind him (I have no idea who made them - they're from about 2008!).   

ETA:  Lindsey suggested I should also play along with the Naughty or Nice You're Number's Up challenge so I'm throwing my hat in the ring!

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Smokey Slate) Stampin' Up
Patterned Paper:  Stash
Stamps:  (All from Party Grumplings) Taylored Expressions
Ink:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Die:  (Wonky Stitched Squares) My Favourite Things
Markers:  (RV13, Y17, YG23, V17, E37, C1, C3) COpic
Gems:  Recollections

Next up is a card for the Curtain Call challenge.  I know those are snow cones in the inspiration photo but I was never really a big fan of those.  I'd take ice cream over a snow cone any day!  Here I used bright colours and framed the Reverse Confetti sentiment with the matching ice cream dies.    

That's all for today.  Have a lovely evening!

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Melon Mambo, Calypso Coral, Peach Parfait, Crumb Cake) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Sentiment from Love & Ice Cream) Reverse Confetti, (Envelope Pattern) Hero Arts
Ink:  (VersaMark, VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Dies:  Reverse Confetti

I love the Grumplings too, and only had the party ones for the longest time. I didn't even know TE had a challenge! :o I love the bunny, and he's perfect here. (You could probably play with us at Naughty or Nice with this... hint, hint.) Awesome colours for the second card!
