Spring Chicky






Whew, we've gone from the lion to the lamb pretty quickly here, although it is super windy today. The snow is melting fast and I'll be pulling my flip flops out soon! A fun and easy challenge at Pile It On this week:

Spots and or stripes
Technically, the piece behind the chick is a striped chevron design, but you can't really see it, so i'm not sure it counts. However, I got lots of dots in so I should be good! I am still working on mixing my love of clean and simple with my addiction to paper - what do you think? The flower is made from tissue paper and turned out great, you just stack up a bunch of tissue paper circles and scrunch!

Challenges:
Card Makin' Mamas - Use green (and a coloured image)
Clearly istamp - Anything Goes
Polkadoodles - Polka dots, stripes or both
Do You Stack Up - Things with wings
Sparkles Forum Challenges - Things with wings
Dutch Dare - Tic Tac Toe (bright colours-flowers-springtime)
Whimsical Designs - Sketch
Cupcake Craftroom - Spring Bouquet
Cute Card Thursday - Signs of Spring
