The Flopsy Bunnies...


"Now...Flopsy, Mopsey and Cottontail...who were good little bunnies... went down the lane to gather blackberries, but Peter who was very naughty...ran straight away to Mr McGregors garden......
Ah...the books of my childhood...Morning all.
I painted this watercolour about 10 years ago...along with a couple of others and had them sitting in a folder in a drawer. I did them just after my first daughter was born and we went to Yorkshire for a week and to The Beatrix Potter Experience with my mum and my brother. It was the last trip away with my mum who sadly passed away a year later.

I found them during a clear out and have now made them into some cards.
They will not go in my stock basket but will be sent to my special girlfriends.
Thanks for stopping by...last few days with the girls before school..bye for now!

  1. I absolutely adore Beatrix Potter, and I live in West Yorkshire and I've been to Beatrix Potter land. It's absolutely beautiful and seeing your gorgeous card makes me want to go again. Your colouring on the card is so beautiful, in fact it looks as good as Beatrix's herself.
    Happy crafting
