Hippity Hoppity....

I had to travel out of town again for business. Before I left, I took 30 minutes to through together this card and am now up late at the hotel posting it. There are a few challenges out there using bunnies.

This is a mini 3"x 3" card. The secret to doing this super duper quick card is to have a stash of die cuts ready to pull out at any time. Fortunately, I had a bunny in the stash. It was a duplicate from the spring card post here.

The idea to have a stash of die cuts came from a post I saw at FCCB Quick Tip Tuesday's

When cutting a shape for a project, why not cut extra to have on hand. I started to do this and have a very mini stash started. So this morning, I grabbed some shapes and glues them down. 

What I have learned is I really need to build up this stash. makes it so quick and easy to make a quick card.

I am linking this card to the following challenges... 
 
How I did it....
Bunny and layers cut at 2" from Kate's ABCs
Frame and circle were left over pices from other cuts form other projects. 
Base of card is 6"x3" when folded is 3"x3"
Sentiment is from My Pink Stamper 
Inside sentiment says Happy Easter also from My Pink Stamper
