Bunnies and Circles

I'm so stinkin' EXCITED!!!!! This morning I found the best email in my box! I ran around my house clapping my hands and cheering and my husband looked at me like I was going crazy.

You see, I found out that I was 1 of 3 people chosen to be a Guest Design Team Member at the PENCIL LINES. WOOHOOOOOOO!!!! You have no IDEA how HONORED I am! Pencil Lines has one of the BEST Design Teams around. Each week I Ooooh and Aaaaah over what those gals create, and I can't believe that they'll be using MY SKETCH in April! HECK YA! Can't wait to see all the amazing things they do with it. :) :) :) Thanks for letting me share!


Our local TV station had this recipe on one of their shows yesterday. It's so flippin' cute! I NEED to make this for my family for Easter. It's Bunny Bread! They used it to hold veggie dip, but I think it would be cute by itself too! Just thought I would pass it along!
Veggie Rabbit
2 Loaves Rhodes™ Bread Dough, thawed but still cold
2 sliced almonds
2 large raisins
1 egg, beaten

Cut one loaf of bread into 1/4 and 3/4 portions. Shape 3/4 portion into egg shape for body and place on a large sprayed baking sheet. Shape 1/4 portion into pear shape and place above body for head. Clip side whiskers with scissors. Cut second loaf in half. Cut one half in half again for ears and roll into two 16-inch ropes. Fold together and place on top of head.
With remaining half of loaf, divide dough in half. Take one half and cut into two pieces. Shape into 2 large thumper feet and place under bunny. Clip toes. Divide last piece of dough into 1/3 and 2/3 portions. Divide 2/3 portion into two hands and place on side of body and clip fingers. Divide remaining 1/3 dough into two large balls and one small ball. Place two large balls on face for cheeks and one small ball for nose.
Place 2 raisins on face for eyes and 2 almonds for teeth. Brush everything with beaten egg, even the teeth. Cover with sprayed plastic wrap. Let rise 15-30 minutes. Remove wrap and bake at 350°F 30 minutes or until browned. Let cool. Hollow out tummy and fill with your favorite dip.

Card Challenge 2 is up at Colorstory Challenge. And here is the card I made following Kim's awesome tutorial. The center is a clear transparency. I just love the way the patterned paper on the inside of the card peeks through. Come on over and create a card with us! I can't wait to see your spin on this challenge!
