Tea for Two

Hi friends.  Busy day today.  Hope everyone had a great Wednesday.
I wanted to share something with you today about my card

If you have been stamping for a long time, you may remember the Holly Pond Hill line of bunnies from Uptown Stamps (no longer in business).  Well, I receive the Newsletter from JoAnna Sheen (she is a well known crafter who appears on TV there regularly) and lo and behold, she is featuring an unmounted line of these Holly Pond Hill bunnies.  So, I went to the cabinet and opened the drawer and there were 10 of these adorable stamps from years ago!  I inked up the tea party one, and made a card.
Out of curiosity, I went on ebay and there are some of the originals for sale, and some are listed as high as $39.99 each (good luck with that!).
My card is simple, wanted to let this little scene be the center of attention.
Pink Card base is a Spellbinders Large Scallop circle Grand die.  Spellbinders classic circle dies.
A white lace doily.  Small white flowers with a pink center and the blue ribbons.  Colored with Copics.  Everything old is new again!!!
Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great Thursday.  Until later...........

Awwwww such a sweet image and coloured so beautifully. How lovely to remember that you have a collection of those cuties and it sounds like they are worth a bit of money now too!

I love these stamps and am thrilled that they are being reissued. I have only one and cannot afford them on ebay.

Your card is darling and I love that it looks like a doily with its pretty shape

Saw Holly Pond for the first time when I was was new to blogland, about 3 1/2 yrs ago, and absolutely adored them but couldn't get any and then they just vanished and nobody seemed to use them. Then I saw them on Joanna Sheen, haven't got them yet but i'm working on it.

This is so magical, a beautiful and enchanting creation Sue.
Happy crafting
