Now for my cards.


The first card I made using the adorable stamp set Cool Chicks.
I colored my bird  with Copics and just had to add the google eyes!


The background is a Cherry Lynn Designs chicken wire die.
I cut it, then cut it apart to make it bit more "ragged".
I adhered it to some sticky back tape then added Waterfall Glitter.

The sentiment was inked with Versamark, then heat set

I finished with a pretty bow and an embellishment.


The next card, I just love, it is so full of pretty, happy colors!
I stamped the chicks using Birds of a Feather and Cool Chicks.
I colored them both with Copics and added Sugar Plum glitter
to the shoes and flower of the first bird



and Spirited Green Glitter to the high heels of the second.
A Viva Cream Pearl Pen was used for her pearls.


For the Sun I used Lemonade glitter for the center
Color Burst Lemon Yellow for the outside.

Now you need to continue on your way
and
The next stop on the hop is MARIE 

Entering the following challenges:
Fresh Brewed Designs .... Tropical colors
Dragonfly Journeys .... If The Shoe Fits
