Hey Chickie....

Here's my little jump start on Easter! I saw the Fall-to Layout #79 on the Clean & Simple Stamping Blog, and instantly knew this little chickie needed to be center stage for this card! I love this layout - right up my alley!!!!
I did a little paper piecing for the egg, it's a wonderful way to use up some of those scrap pieces that I've got; all of which I used here are scraps from the Sweet Pea Collection. Have I mentioned what a great bargain that paper pad is? It's like getting 4 packs of DSP for slightly above the price of two. And the paper is so stinkin' cute, you just can't go wrong. Seriously people - you need this paper in your stash!
There's that little chickie - isn't she so cute??? Yes, this one is a she - hello - pink egg!!

And this chickie is clearly a boy!!!!
I made up several of these cards (selling on my Etsy shop!). They are not only clean and simple, they are quick and easy! Run the card front thru the Big Shot using the polka dot impressions folder, stamp the little chickie, color him/her in. I used watercolor crayons (of course!), stamp again on patterned paper and cut out the egg portion, adhere that to your colored little chick, and assemble the rest.....simple as that! AND - it's nice and springy.........
That's all folks!
