Peachy Chickie Card

Hello my treasured friends!

First and foremost, Happy New Year to you all! I have missed you all greatly, and it feels great to finally get back into crafting and blogging! During the holidays, I lost my creative mojo, then got it back, but my room was a huge mess so I couldn't craft. Then I was thinking about my crafting, and I really figured out that due to my hectic school schedule, and the amount of my own crafting projects that I need to get done, I should focus on those things, and hence, not apply for any design teams. I will however, be participating in the challenges going around that I see fit with a project that I'm working on, etc. By doing so, this will really help contribute to my New Years resolutions, and I hope that you all are working towards yours as well!

So let's kick off the year right! I created this adorable chickie card for a dear friend of mine. Her birthday was last week, and she absolutely adores chickens, chicks, and anything of the sort, so this one is for you my friend! :) Peachy Keen is having a linky party, which you can participate as well here. I'll also be entering this into Celebrate the Occasion's challenge, to create a child's birthday card, and into Birthday Sundae's Challenge to create a birthday card. This card will fit right in, and you can play along as well here. So are we ready?? Here it is!

Isn't she just the cutest?? My friend loves chicks and the colour purple, so my Trendy Twine's Grape Fizz was the perfect addition! Here's the list of treasures!

Trail of Treasures:
  • Card Base - 3.5 x 6" cut in kraft cardstock, and rounded at the outer corners with the Creative Memories Corner Rounder, and inked the edges with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Ink
  • Card Layer - shape from Cricut Lite Lacy Labels cartridge cut at 3.15 x 5.75", cloud paper from My Little Shoebox's Home Tweet Home Collection, and cut an additional layer in green and used the Fiskars Grass Punch to create the grass
  • Chick - cut from Simply Charmed Cartridge at 3", faced stamped with PK-754 Medium Critter Faces, added Trendy Twine's Grape Fizz for the cute bow, and added Inkssentials White Enamel Accents for the tummy
  • Balloons - punched with Martha Stewart's Balloon Punch, and added more Trendy Twine's Grape Fizz to finish off the balloons
I have more projects to post, so visit me soon! Enjoy your weekend everyone!

Until next time's treasures,
