I have been trying to get to Mothermark's Teapot Challenge all week...mentally planning in my head and then...wha-la...the week was gone, and it was time for the next challenge. I thought I would do last weeks and got out the only bees I have...and guess what...they are rabbits pretending to be bees....and...they are the only rabbits I have too....so I am thinking this card qualifies for both challenges...and that way I don't have to miss any Tea Parties!!!
So how about it...a two challenge card...c'mon be kind to the tired stamper who happens to be feeling a bit smug at this great achievement...I hate to miss a good party and I is thirsty!!!!
I used Fiskar Texture Plates for the background DP and inked it with butterscotch ink, wanting to give the effect of honeycomb. The rabbits are from my friend Hannah (aka bubblefrog) who started me on the Happy Hopper, House Mouse and Gruffies addiction....I chalked the HH's and the rest is pretty self explanatory........I guess I will have to get my own cup of tea until I find out if I am allowed to attend these Tea Parties....pretty please Cindy....
Thanks for looking - what do YOU think!?

Bwahaha! You da man! I mean da woman! You are brilliant! What a wonderful little card. I have always just loved that image, it is the most precious! And by the way, there are no boundaries! Only how you are inspired! Hee!
Okay, so now that you are at the teaparty you are probably hearing the scuttle-butt that there are left over bees taken up home in the teapot spout. As bunnies show up and reproduce they are getting very aggitated at the bunnies disrupting their hard work. Your bunnies were as brilliant as you to show up in bee costumes! Snort...they're no dumb bunnies! Those bees will never know!
Thanks so much for coming. I am glad you did! And you are in girlfriend, definately invited to all past and future tea parties! Your card rocks!

I agree with Cindy, your bunnies have to be the smartest bunnies around. How wonderful that they are dressed up like the bees. I love your textured background. How creative of you to think of these little bee-bunnies for both teaparties.

Awwwww, I love this card and those cute bunny bees! WOW, Linda, you are smooth girl! Getting in 2 challenges, clever and beautiful what can we do but bow in front such smarts! Great job on the background too. I've yet to finish mine, but with the way things are going today, there is snow falling all over here, I should be staying quietly inside and make cards, but no, dh is here and we are on the road again!!! Beautiful darling, just beautiful!

The tea mistress is correct! This is just adorable and very clever. I'll bet you are the first to crash two tea parties at once. Great job on the BG DP too! I even forgot I have some of those Fiskars thingys somewhere...

The way that I see is that this is rabbit species known only to a small area of Canberra - and you have caught them in action... How could we - across the pond - and so caught up in our fog - know that this was a little known species of rabbit!! Well, I for one have know been educated, and thanks for that Linda! Live and learn, I say!
And the information - I mean card - is delightful!! I do like the fiskers embossing plates - great work!
OMGosh, those bunnies are just gorgeous, Linda, and smart and sneaky too, lol!!!! This is just adorable, gf, I'm busy trying to catch up on you and Maddy now, before you head off to bed!!!! WAY TO GO, girl!!!
