Mad as a March Hare!

When you hear the saying "Mad as a March Hare", you probably think of Alice in Wonderland, and that´s why I´ve made an Alice themed card for this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge with that theme (credits for this one: Sherrie Drummond and Finecrafted Designs) - and I hope you´ve noticed that there´s an Alice themed ATC swap currently running on this blog (if you´re interested, just scroll down a bit ...).
But did you know that the saying appears in a book of proverbs in 1546 already? Originally, it recurred to the mad behaviour of hares in the springtime, and that´s the idea behind my second card for this week, using rubber stamps from Stempelmine, Red Lead, Catslife, and Stamping Fairies.

What fun you've had with this new theme. Both of your postcards are a delight! Alice is always fun and your second postcard had me staring at it, smiling and enjoying all the fun details you included. And your Alice card, I do believe I would enjoy living where we are all mad here. Fantastic postcards!

Two wonderful postcards, Marion! Love the somewhat muted colors in the first, and the vibrant bursts of Spring color in the second! Well done!
