  3. Ginny...I love it...only took a second to get it but I'm fresh from a good nights sleep and several sips of my morning coffee (LOL). What a sweet image...and your colorring is great.

  4. I actually laughed out loud when I saw this sweet funny and clever. As always, your colouring is impeccable and truly brings the scene to life, ~ginny. I love the angled and matted background papers and how the bottom one isn't confined to the card space...very fun! You always inspire me!

  5. Brilliant image and design Ginny☺

  6. That rabbit in disguise should be arrested for stealing the poor snow man's nose and warm clothes .......Ginny, I'm creased up at the humour of this image and love that you gave it such prominence on a beautifully designed card ........I just feel so sorry for the snowman who is not having such a Happy New Year. Thank you for such fun ...your card is terrific and memorable.

    Thank you for sharing this lovely card in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx ( OSAAT Team )

  12. Such a great card Ginny!! Love the teal colour you've chosen as the main colour for the rabbit's accessories and papers too. The layout works really well, but the layers are not overpowering, and the little bow is perfect....
