Hey Chickie!!

"Thanks Easta' bunny bawk bawk!!" Does anyone remember that commercial? I think it was for M&Ms
Anyway, I made this card for Easter. I found this adorable little chick in the Simply Charmed cartridge and I knew I HAD to make it!!!
 I cut  the chick and eggs out of white cardstock and colored them w/ some Distress Inks in Scattered Straw and Mustard Seed for the chick and Broken China and Faded Jeans, Crushed Olive and Shabby Shutters, Victorian Velvet, Worn Lipstick and Spun Sugar for the eggs, which are from Sugar & Spice cartidge. The face stamp is from Peachy Keens Happy Lashes. The saying is from My Creative Times Turn that Frown Upsidedown set. Paper is Papertrey Ink, Recollections and Paper Studio. And Seeing Spots Cuttlebug folder and I put what appeared at the time, a yellow feather on it's head (looks brown now) lol

Shamrock Wreath

Hi Everyone!!
I hope you are all having a great week. Mine has been a little sad, my 100 year old Grandma died on Sunday. I also feel happy for her to be at peace now. She has had a rough go of it lately. She went peacefully in her sleep. She can now be w/ my Grandpa who passed in 1977. We'll miss you Grandma.

Thanks for letting me get that out, now on to happier things!! I made this wreath in honor of St. Patty's Day. I love how it turned out!! Soooo bright and cheerful!!
Are you ready for the long list of cartridges used? Here goes...
Celebrate w/ Flourish, cindy Loo, Create a Critter, Don Juan and Simply Charmed.
Paper is Color bok, Recollections, Glitz and Glitter and Papertrey Ink.
I used my Sakura gel pens to add some stitching and LOTS of Glue dots and glue.
