Hey Chickie!

Hi all! Thanks for the comments about yesterday's tutorial! I didn't tell you this yesterday, but to make sure that the directions were easy enough to follow - I actually sat my hubby down and made him do it! His folds were kinda crooked, but he did it! Man, that guy must love me!! LOL!

Yesterday I showed you one of Asela Hopkin's new stamps for Easter that is sold through Cornish Heritage Farms. Well, I decided, it was too cute of an image not to be able to use year round! So, here's what I came up with. Take out the Easter saying and add "Hey Chickie," then, only ink up the chick - not the egg - and you have a fun card to say "hey" to your girlfriends!

To make the card, I just stamped the chick in permanent black ink, colored with watercolor pencils and cut the shape out (both scalloped and regular circle) with my Nestabilities. And, the sky was added with some dots done in sky blue ink just by tapping off the color all around the chick. Now that I look at the little guy, I also outlined one side of him with a really light blue Tombow marker to make him "pop" a bit.

Here's a close up....
Now, all I am going to say about tomorrow's post is this - it just might make you hungry!! :-)

Have a good one!!
