The March Hares

I'm playing with some overlapping themes today for Rogue Redhead Designs, LLC.  You will find my blog post there.

It's still March, so I used this month's color prompts of purple, green and gold.

It's our third month for the Holiday Inspiration Club.  This month, we're encouraged to make our own backgrounds.

I decided to venture into the world of washi tape.  The green roll was a store bought item.  I made my own washi tape for the purple and gold strips using Rogue Redhead Designs stamps onto soft white ultra matte sticker paper sold for this very purpose at

This bunny stamp set is so adorable.  You can find Beatrix Potter A Winter's Tale in the Rogue Redhead Designs, LLC store under "other manufacturers".  Bunnies would be my favorite animal -- especially to craft with--  so you know I had to get this stamp set-- I love the Beatrix Potter rabbits in their little coats--so vintage---and you know I love vintage!!!!

Even though they're winter bunnies, I decided these two could also pass for spring bunnies.  Where I live, we always need a coat or jacket until mid May.

I also used:  s.e.i. card stock, Ancient Page Plum Wine ink, Ranger Wendy Vecchi Tree Branch Archival ink, Stampin' Up Watercolor Pencils and Whispering White card stock.

Entering these challenges:

So here is the dilemma:  this card is so generic, including the sentiment I chose, that I think I can use it for Christmas, Easter, Mother's Day or any other occasion where someone "needs a hug".  That will explain my mixed bag of challenge entries:
