Happy Easter Chicks

Good morning, and a big Happy Easter to you all! Just wanted to pop in to wish the Blessings of this day to all of you, and share a card, that will be for the Mr. As usual, his the last made, since I don't have to consider the time aspect of mailing.



- background was sponged DOX in colors that were on the focal image. Stamped and embossed the stamped egg that is also on the front of the card. Used Detail white, then did the sponging. Used a water brush to go over the inner design, which lifted some of the DOX color.

Penny Black transparent set for the Easter Chicks. Aren't they just so cute?

- DP snippet from some earlier Easter cards, colored the image, diecut with a S/B die.

- IO wooden image of the egg, colored with copics, then applied Glossy Accents, fussy cut.

- Stamp Doc image for the sentiment.



 
 
The last of the Easter cards, which were mailed late. This was a cling Penny Black image, colored with copics.
 
I must apologize that I am woefully behind in returning visits, but don't give up on me. I'll get round though it may take me a few days. I'm appreciating all the wonderful folks who stop & take time to leave encouragement and kind words.
 
Just have a wonderful Blessed day. We will be with the family who are here locally, and plan to go out for dinner.  Big hugs. Thanks for stopping in.

  23. These are both so cute, and I love the reference to smelling jelly beans LOL I have that PB image and never pulled it out to use it this year?! I do love how you added the smaller sentiment to the bottom - it's so cute and fun with that gigantic egg! Hopefully your Easter was a nice one - ours went well, and then we woke up to 5 inches of snow after being in short sleeves outdoors yesterday! Strange!!!
