Happy Fathers' Day!

My dad loves, loves, loves fruit! When first thinking of the design for his fathers' day card; I felt this bunny might be too cutesy. But a recent conversation with my mom about my daddy snacking on his fruit throughout the evening made me realize this little guy was perrrrfect!



Doesn't he look like he's really enjoying those apples!!! The background papers are from the Cosmo Cricket 6x6 Garden Variety paper pad. And the stamp is Happy Hoppers - House Mouse Designs. I stamped him in sepia ink and then used a combination of water color pencils along with markers and a water brush. The apples are coated with a glaze pen several times.

My dad will receive this along with a gift certificate to the local produce market so he can stock up on his yummy fruit! Love you dad!!!
