One Cute Chick!


Hello, Everyone! It's a very happy Thursday here in Maine. After a day of pouring rain yesterday, today is sunny and heading for the 80's! My cards today are full of pretty spring flowers, starting with the patterned paper from Basic Grey. I just fell in love with it, and had to use it. I had this cute chick image from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff already printed, colored (with my Prismas) and die cut. It was just waiting for the right card to come along, and I think it did! I made the flowers by using a flower punch and bazzill papers. You first punch the flowers, then scrunch and mash them up, then peel the two layers apart. I layered each flower to give it more depth and added brads from elements. I also made a small card with a the scraps from my first card a piece of ribbon and some purple stickles. Click HERE to go to the Mygrafico shop to buy the Cute Easter set.
You can check out the rest of the design team's blogs and see what they did this week - I'm sure it will be fabulous! The links are in my side bar, or you can go to Lindsay's Blog and find the list there. I know she will have a fun freebie for you and some extra special crafty inspiration! I'm off to enjoy the sunshine - Happy Digi Stamping!

My cards qualify for the following challenges:

Dare U 2 Digi Stamp - Anything Goes
Drunken Stampers - Scraps
Ann's Creative Nook - Round and Round We Go!
Cupcake Craft Challenges - Blooming Charming
