Easter Chicks

Time flies by and before I know it it is a few days since I have posted - but as we all know there are times when we need to touch base with real life! I am very blessed to be able to craft whenever I want to, so time is not an issue for me, although I think I tend to be more productive when I have a deadline or two - no time for procrastinating over decisions!

This is a very quick and easy, slightly whimsical Easter card - how cute are those darling chicks from the retired Layers of Color Rise and Shine clear art stamp set.  The chicks have been stamped, cut out and coloured with Stampin' Up! Chalks/Pastels

I have used the Spellbinders Grand Calibur to cut the egg, using the Spellbinders Classic Ovals Nestibilities, with ribbon added, along with a computer generated sentiment - quick and easy!

This card is from the following challenges:
Crazy Amigo Challenge - April does what it wants (free theme/ anything goes)
