Hey, Chickie!!

Good Monday morning to all! My Hoppy Easter stamps came on Friday and I got many of them stamped right away! They are all so terrific, but I remember when Diana first opened her preorder and showed us these images-this was one of the first ones to catch my eye! She is soooo cute in her costume! After choosing the image I chose the sketch from the Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge blog. She has some really great ones! Then I set to coloring our sweet Tilda! She came out just as I hoped she would. I found this oval in a stash of cut ovals that I had discarded from previous cards-the bottom was aqua so I put it back in the Spellbinder's Die and used my stencil brush to swirl on some Adirondack lettuce ink! Perfect background!
I chose my papers from the recent Cosmo Cricket release 6x6 pad. I got the card laid out and decided the Kraft needed a stamp so I called on my SU background-linen.
Once I got the buttons on I needed something on the left so decided on this single flower and some fern punches.
No room for a sentiment on this 4.5" x 4.5" card so I will finish the inside with a layer of dp and then use my "Hey, Chickie!" sentiment for a hello card to a friend. She doesn't need to be just for Easter!
She makes me smile!
Wishing you a terrific day! Thanks so much for a great blog week last week! I have my attempt at a Distressed Tilda card for you tomorrow!
Cheryl
