Happy Easter

I can’t believe it is already April!  The year seems to be zipping by already.  Since Easter is next weekend, I had to ink up this little cutie (Chirpy from Penny Johnson) this past weekend when I was creating my card for my Stampavie post.  It’s such an adorable image!

I stamped my image using tuxedo black memento ink on copic x-press it cardstock.  I chose some patterned from October Afternoon’s Sidewalks line and colored my image in coordinating colors using copic markers (listed below).  I stitched my patterned papers and added a white paper doily and some flowers and pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts.  Then, I finished off my card with a cute Easter sentiment seal from Catslife Press.

Have a great day!

Hi Niki,
Sorry I am so late coming by, I have been trying to get my life in order and also have actually started to design my blog! I have the name, my philosphy and have writen the first post, but I am still playing around with backgrounds etc, trying to get it right. It's a learning curve but I am getting there, thanks to my lovely daughter who sat with me today giving me some tips.
I adore this card, so colourful and exciting. Perfect for a spring/Easter card and that little chick is so cute I want to tickle him! LOL..
Hope all is well in your world. Hugs Linda
