nothing says Easter like a chick...


 Good morning everyone...wow would you believe we have sun, mind no heat yet but wall to wall sunshine...I'm loving it...my lovely Dad is off on his travels, I will miss him of course but am chuffed to bits hes going he needs a break and some excitement in his life...we live in a gorgeous area but there isn't much to do around here especially in cold weather, I hope hes out and about everyday and has brilliant fun...can you believe its almost Easter...omg how fast is this year flying by...a perfect time for starting Easter cards and a mix of this fab stamp and the sun inspired mine for today which is using the gorgeously cute Whimsy Follow Me...aren't all those little chicks so sweet...I coloured it with my usual Distress Inks and teamed it with some of the gorgeous bright Echo Park - For the Record 2 Documented papers, the paper pad and the stamp are from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...I finished with some flowers cut from another sheet of the same pad and buttons added to the centres and some glitter on his pretty wings...well they are wings so have to be glittery don't they lol...I cant for the life of me remember where the sketch is from but am entering this for the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge, Sparkle N Sprinkle Creative Challenge and the Love to Create Challenge too...Phil's off work this afternoon because he has a hospital appointment, just a routine thing nothing serious but it means we can have a rare mid week treat of heading out together so I'm off to get the old war paint on...whatever your up to today I hope the sun shines on you too
