Hey There, Chickadee!

It's me! Did you think I'd never come back?! Well, it's amazing what a sinus infection can do, I tell ya. The thought of doing anything other than lay on the couch seemed very remote, and stamping seemed even more unlikely. But I just couldn't go another day without creating something! And I thought a nice, bright card for Easter might cheer me up:

Isn't that chick cute? That's one of the shapes included in the Click Simple Spring Fling template collection from Papertrey Ink. I've had him sitting on my desk forever and I thought it was high time he get on a card! I love that you can resize the shapes for different projects. All I did to jazz him up was to add a rhinestone for an eye, a beak with my Copic marker, and a wing using a small oval die. And I finally got to use my new egg die on this card, also from Papertrey Ink. I stamped my eggs using Polka Dot Basics II and nested them into some grass made from Spring Moss cardstock. The grass was created with my Silhouette, but I defined it a little more with some small sharp scissors to make it look more realistic:

I love how the texture of the grass looks against the card, especially with some of it poking out a bit. And I couldn't resist the sentiment from Everyday Button Bits; it was too perfect for my little chick!

Well, I hope you are all having a great week so far. I have to keep this somewhat short, as it's getting late and it is a school (work) night. Now that it's lighter later outside, I get all confused and assume I have much more time than I really do to get everything done before bedtime. Does this happen to you when the time changes?

One more thing...thanks for all the get well wishes! See you back here soon...promise!
