Hi everyone! If you made any purchases at Squigglefly last week, be sure to have a look HERE to see if you won!
Did you have a great weekend? Mine went by fast as usual, but what a beautiful weekend it was! Did you see the Super Moon on Saturday night? Gorgeous!
It did get rather warm - about 80 degrees both days - but it was cool early in the evening and in the mornings. Bees are everywhere! Riley keeps jumping and snapping at them. She's going to be sorry when she finally gets one!
I did learn a little about how to use the Cricut, and I've played around a bit. So far my biggest problem is that the mat is so sticky the things I cut tear when I pull them off. I can work with the really simple cuts okay, but intricate things are tricky!
I've got an Easter card to share with you today. I made this for the Outlawz challenge on their homepage that is to make any kind of greeting card and it has a great prize, so I'm entering this there too!

the image I used here is one by Cheryl Alger called Easter Chicks. I colored with Copic markers and did a little chalking around the top of the basket with yellow chalk. The chicks are fluffed up with some yellow flock! Aren't they cute all fuzzy?
The sentiment is computer generated. See that label the sentiment is on? I cut that with the Cricut and sponged some Lavender Lace around the edges. The image panel is punched in each corner and then I pierced on the bottom layer to draw attention to them. The little carrot is one I made with some cardboard and embroidery floss. It's popped up on some small pop dots.
Today is a brand new challenge on Squigglefly's blog! Vicki has challenged everyone to push her buttons by using buttons on your project!
