Good Morning! Good Morning! It's a Happy Day Today!

Hello Neighbor! Are you having a Happy Day today? The day is still young here, so I will have to get back to you on my day. LOL....of course Maeve has already taken the top off her sippy cup and dumped the milk onto my car seat and proceeded to "rub it in". (while waiting at the school bus stop with Orla). I am sure that spilled milk will come back to haunt me on the first hot day this summer. mmmmmmm...won't that be a pretty summer scent!! :P eeewwwww!

For those of you that celebrated Easter yesterday, I hope that it was a lovely day. We had a nice day. My kids are the only kids on my side of the family so they get lots of attention. They also usually provide the entertainment and stories about us that I usually wish they wouldn't share! LOL! Random stuff like "Mommy ate a Snickers bar for breakfast yesterday" or "Daddy has lint in his belly button". Nice. Good thing those kids are so dang CUTE! ;)

This Tilda stamp (and the chicks) are part of the Magnolia Easter Collection. But I don't think chicks have to be for just Easter. I wanted to make just a Springy feeling card. What do you think....just to Easter-y? Tilda's dress is paper pieced. Then I stamped the little bundle of chicks she is carrying, cut them out and pieced them again over the dress. I must admit that one chick was maimed in the creating of this card. :( While cutting the the little pair that are perched on the sentiment, I got a little snip happy and the one on the left lost a leg. YIKES! Please don't turn me in the ASPCA! It was not intentional, and I did try to perform surgery to attach the limb...but it was too late. It was a lost cause. However, I am happy to say that he is hopping about my card on his one leg and doesn't seem to even notice. I hope the receiver of this card doesn't notice either. LOL!

This card was made for this week's TechnoStampers Sketch. Check it out! Join in on the fun! While you are there ooooh and aaaaah over MJ's cards too. :)

Have a Gleeful Monday!

TeeHee, kids are just so fun! Remember they are only young for such a short time. I love your card for my challenge today. I agree chicks are not just for Easter. They are too cute to keep hidden the rest of the year. Fabulous card, thanks for playing.

Hi Kerry,

So love to hear your stories. They always put a smile on my face.

Chicks are for spring so use them all you want.

Beautiful card even with the one legged chick LOL

A very cute and delightful card, Kerry. Love the papers and colors. The chicks are so cute popped up like that...looks warm and fuzzy. Great card! Hugs, Cami

Cheryl said...

This is a real beauty!

Linda S. said...

Nope, I could not tell one of the chicks only has one leg. As an animal lover, I was so glad that you at least attempted resuscitation and re-connection. lol This card is darling, and I vote for using chicks through early Summer. Linda S. in NE
