Heartstrings Design Team Cute Critters

Hello everyone!
This time we are all to create something with a critter.....
I thought for a long, long, long time, OK and extensive period of time about what to create.
I right away knew that I wanted to use the stamp with the sentiment:  "Beauty grows around us.  You see it everywhere...all of life's a miracle, the Lord counts every hare!" by our wonderful sponsor My Heart Stamps 4 You, but I just did not know exactly were or how to use it. I thought of a hare of course! but how? I thought of a two page layout with critters since I do own the Cricut cartridge "Create a Critter"... and nothing! I looked at all my cute designs from Silhouette, some rather cute and even beautiful, but still nothing!!!  Since I did not want to disappoint Shelley nor any of the wonderful ladies in our DT, I continued to search... I looked at all the bunnys I have,  I even went out and purchased a Sizzix hare die.  I cut the die/hare several ways and in several different colors, I went as far as flocking it! following Anne's video tutorial (check it out), but still not happy!!
The result is the most simple card with one the most powerful sentiment!  After stamping the sentiment, my search continued for the perfect embellishment, ribbon, metal charm... etc.
I know that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but the simplicity of this card, to me, describes this sentiment so perfectly... "Beauty grows around us. You see it everywhere...all of life's a miracle, the Lord counts every hare!"

Thanks for looking and for enduring the long Gab...mhhhh maybe that's why they call me Gaby?! lol

Just for that! I am offering some blog candy!
