Snowbunny

Hello lovely people. I hope you had a good weekend.

I'm here today with my DT card for


where the theme is Festive Furry Friends...CUTE of course.

I used (one of our Sponsors)  Meljens " Snow Bunny"


...just how cute is that face? Coloured with Promarkers with a sprinkling of Glamour Dust and some Viva Decor Ice White pearl pen to finish off.

 There is a story behind the sentiment. Are you sitting comfortably? Then I'll begin...

 Once Upon a Time many years ago (30 to be precise...blimey, how did that happen??) a  young farmer wanted to attract the attention of a shy bank clerk and didn't know how to go about it (yeah right, he was a tinker, but for the sake of the fairy tale just go with it!!). So, as Christmas was approaching he journeyed into the local town and chose a Christmas card to send to her. On the front was a little dog looking very sad and forlorn and the sentiment said " If I followed you home this Christmas....could I stay?". The shy bank clerk and the young farmer got together at the Young Farmers' New Years Eve bash and lived Happily Ever After. 

I still have that card in my memory box.....altogether now....aaaaaah!!
