Peter Rabbit and Company

I am sure you have heard the saying, "Multiplying like rabbits".  Well, it is certainly true.  Rabbits do have a tendency to multiply, especially this week in my Stampin' Studio.  I was happily cruising through Pinterest when I came across the cutest rabbits created by Pamela Staples.  They were screaming PIN ME!  Suddenly I was collecting rabbits and they were quickly multiplying.  You can see my collection HERE.   Eventually I stopped collecting and started creating.   All told I ended up with a dozen adorable rabbits. Here are three that hung around long enough to get their picture taken.

You too can invite Peter to visit.
