Haiku Bunny hopping to a friend :)

Wow! It's Friday already ~ I can't believe how fast the weeks are flying by.  And what a whopper of a storm we had last night and this morning with Tropical Storm Bonnie - massive rains, our pool overflowed and the ground had inches of rain when I took the poor doggies out :x

Today's card is a long overdue post of a card I made awhile back for my dear friend Paola's Asian card swap - one I missed, sadly, when my dh fell ill and ended up in the hospital.  I still wanted to send my sunshine friend her hostess card anyway, unless she hosts a 2nd Asian swap and then I'll be first!  Hee hee! :) 

I created this faux pocket card (not sure if that's for real, I just made it up since I invented a few different folds for this, lol)  using my beloved Haiku Bunny stamp - loved so much it had never seen ink in the 2 years I've owned it!  Dh saw me admiring this one day and it's been super hard to find - in fact, this sold for over $300.00 on ebay once!  Insane, I tell ya!  And one day, while surfing the net, there it was on a site that I bought my treasured Kodomo stamps from (you may remember my Asian Kit-Cat card post with my other kittens!)  They had a few left in stock for less than $11.00 - ohh that poor ebayer! :(   Dh bought it instantly for me without me even asking - I nearly cried.  He said it was for my birthday that was 2 weeks away but it's just the way he is always so kind and  thoughtful - he truly has a beautiful soul.
And he was the inspiration behind putting this card together - it came together so easily and without struggling for once!
