Happy Earth Day everyone! Time for the planet to celebrate right? So grab your tie dye and granny glasses or just a trash bag and head for the beach, the mountains or just your park down the road and give Mother Nature a hand in whatever way you can. There are lots of links online to what’s happening in your own communities. Using Google just enter Earth Day in (insert town and state) to find ways to help and ways to party.
Since bunnies are a creature of the earth I thought is was more than time to share a few more bunny box pictures and my own tip sheet.
Today is also my own honey bunnies birthday (would be his 60th if he wasn’t already in Heaven). Do they celebrate birthdays in Heaven? I’ve always wondered.
If you haven’t seen the other bunny boxes I’ve made and posted here is a refresher:

I just noticed that James must have been on a dangerous assignment (getting between me and the chocolate kisses possibly?) recently…one of his toe pads has gone walkabout. Sigh…even a tuxedo is no guarantee of safety these days. 😀
I do have a close up of his sign so you can see the pretty All is Calm paper. The lettering was done with the Rotary Alphabet stamp (it’s bigger than the sign for sure). I cut a rectangle and rounded the corners then added the “stake”. Pretty paper on the front and reinforced on the back with a strip of Basic Black cardstock.
(Yeah…the placement could have been a bit better. :D)
Stay tuned for a bride for the tuxedo bunny…sans sign of course. I’m still trying to decide on the dress. Isn’t that just like a bunny bride…slow to decide instead of hopping to it?
Here are a couple more fun bunnies. At Easter time I made some for the neighbors and of course they said Happy Easter. Now that Easter is past I’ve swapped out for Hello Spring! Assuming Spring is planning on visiting for more than a day or two here and there. No pressure Spring…I just want to say Hello.
Does it look to you as if Cabana Boy stole a kiss (chocolate of course) from Pretty in Pink Chick?
The supplies and directions links from the earlier posts have the basics. These two were done in Pretty in Pink (retired color) and Coastal Cabana (about to retire In Color). I used the Sale-a-Bration Coastal Cabana ribbon and button and the flower centers for Cabana boy are Bermuda Bay. Doesn’t it just seem as if those two names and colors are meant to be together?
Here’s a tip and tricks sheet with various links and more in the way of directions:
Bunny Boxes – A Linda Parker CASE with info & tips sheet
And here’s Linda Parker’s Video that gave me the idea for the CASE (copy and share everything):
That’s it for the bunnies. Can’t wait to see what you create for yourself (I’d love a link to your creation). I just know there are other famous bunnies waiting to come to life as a bunny box.
As a reminder:
Not only are the retiring products going fast Stampin’ Up has also added new items to the Clearance Rack. Most from the 2014 Holiday Catalog.
Take a peek and don’t forget to use the hostess code: EAE3TYVU

Cool way to recycle right? From the warehouse to your craft room and then using it all up to spread joy to others!
Since the Watercooler Challenge gang just had a Watercolor (and silhouette) challenge last Sunday I thought it appropriate to close with a fun watercolor Earth Day image.
Hope your Earth day was a happy one.
Hugs and Blessings,
