Bunny Butts

My sister, who once upon a time lived every little girl's dream of becoming a professional ballet dancer, collects photos of animal butts. This may have started in high school when she attended the North Carolina School of the Arts, where she was thrown in with college students at far too tender an age.

Anyway, over the years, when my husband and I are at zoos, I try to get at least one animal butt shot because, you know, I'm a thoroughly supportive big sister and encourage Lisa in her hobbies.

So when I saw the bunny stamp in Clearly Besotted's Woodland Pals set, I knew who would get the first card I made with it.

Note that I grounded the bun-bun with a border-punched piece of lime green card stock and created a bunny butt with a 1/4" pom pom. This wouldn't fit through the regular mail, but I intend to hand it to her when I see her later this summer.

She will laugh and laugh and hang it on her fridge with the other animal butt pictures.

And speaking of laughing, tonight at the dinner table, my 15-year-old son said, "She was dressed prerogatively." George and I just about died laughing. I love that kid.

stamps: Clearly Besotted
ink: Memento Luxe
paper: Papertrey Ink white, unknown lime green
accessories: Martha Stewart grass border punch, glue, pom pom


  1. Interesting hobby, fun card! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Cute Overload calls them 'tocks. They even have a whole month (Tocktober!) devoted to animal butts. I'm sure your sister would love - Cute card! :)

  3. I love the misuse of our wonderful language. It can be one word or a phrase; they all crack me up. One of my husbands favorite sayings is, " A bull in a china cabinet". I don't have the heart to correct him. My other favorite is my mom's explanation of how blueberries are so good for you, "They are loaded with anti-intoxicants"! My coworkers and I love to discuss how many foods are filled with that wondrous property.


Thank you so much for taking time to comment!
