Rainbow Chicks


It's Thrifty Thursday with My Creative Time, a day to use your scraps or recycled products on a project!  I pulled out my scrap drawers to make a fun Easter card!  This a 3 1/2" x 6" card.  It took a while to find a good scrap for my sky, but there was one deep in my drawer that worked.  I added a few clouds made with the MCT Stitched Cartoon Cloud Dies.


I selected a rainbow of scraps for my chicks' shells and cut them with the dies from Hello Chickie!  The die for the chick itself comes with a die for the eyes and beak, but there was a small tragedy in my craft room when I was cutting the dies apart.  The eyes and beak flew across the room and have yet to be located. :-(  I had to improvise with some Glam Rock eyes and square cardstock beaks.  The grass that the eggs are nestled in was made with the Stitched Grass Die.  I stamped the sentiment, from Hello Chickie!, on an oval made with the Stitched Oval Die.


I thought this sentiment, from Happy Hunting, was just perfect with the rainbow of chicks!  I stamped it on the inside of the card and added a little egg made with another die from Hello Chickie!

Be sure to stop by Emma's blog to see what she and the rest of the design team have to share with you today!
