Easter Chick

I am back to share another Easter card with you, only a couple more to share which is just as well because tomorrow is Good Friday here in the Southern Hemisphere.

I have used another image from Magic Moonlight Free Images - they are just so adorable and certainly helped me get multiple cards created.

I have cut the image with the Spellbinders Labels Twenty Three Nestibilities- don't you just love the shape of this one - it was definitely a 'must have' one for me...and if you know me at all you would know that I am going to tell you that I cut the Die using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Machine.

The sentiment is computer generated and has been cut with the Spellbinders Ribbon Banners Shapeabilities and the used the Die as a mask before removing it - it is such an effective technique - I love it! The background paper is from way down deep in my scrap pile and has been embossed using one of the new Spellbinders M-bossabilities - called Flower Fun.   I love these folders, the embossing is so deep and the folders are double sided - you have to love that!

This card is for the following challenges:
My Mum's Craft shop - Easter/animals
Papercraft Star - anything goes 
Paper Shelter Challenge -anything goes/ Easter 
Simon Says Stamp - use your favorite tool (Embossing Folders and Spellbinders Dies)
The Perfect Sentiment -  Easter + bling
Waste Not Wednesday - always "use your forgotten stuff"

Thank you for your comments and all of the support you give me - you make blogging such an amazing place to be!! Your encouragement is such a blessing for me - it makes my day!  I will be back later today with a Sneak Peek of my Spellbinders post. God bless you!

  3. Gorgeous card Linda and yes these images are just so lovely!
    When I read your comment about it being Good Friday tomorrow in the S. Hemisphere I had to smile... It's good Friday here in the N Hemisphere too lol! Difference is, here it's spring. I guess you may have meant that in some parts of the world it would only be Good Friday the day after tomorrow because of the time difference.....

    Have a very happy Easter when it comes!
