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!
