Hi there! I hope you all are doing well this week. I have been a busy little bee, getting ready for Easter and organizing/purging all over the house: closets, drawers, bins, etc. "Spring cleaning" as it were. It feels good to get the house in better order, but I have been SOOOOOO busy! I did want to get to this week's TCP Tuesday 155. I haven't gotten to play over there in a couple weeks! Leigh is the hostess this week, and you have got to click on her name there, and go see her A-MAZING, adorable card! So so cute! :) Anyway, it's a sketch challenge this week, and here is the sketch:
I made my card a long card, or what I call a "legal" sized card, because it fits in a legal sized envelope. It's 3 3/4" x 8 1/2." I needed one more Easter card, so I got to use my VERY favorite TCP Easter set. I decided the long card would be a fun opportunity to stack some things up. In case you haven't noticed, I really like to stack things! Anyone remember my layered cake card? LOL :) So, I used my oval punch to create some eggs for the mama hen to sit on. I stamped the sentiment on the bottom egg. I made my chicken from a MME yellow gingham paper. For the patterned paper in the background, I used a new piece with musical notes on it and a fancy die-cut border from Sassafrass Lass, too fun! I thought the musical notes would be cute for the bird. This card was just crying out to be sewn on, so I caved and dragged out my sewing machine. I dream of the day I have a space big enough to work where I could leave it out all the time. Not much more to this card, a resin flower and some fun, striped ribbon complete the look.
I was super thrilled to see my Frosty card featured over at Jingle Belles today! That card made me smile, so I was so glad to see other folks felt the same! :)
