Spring Chickie

Hello Crafty Friends!

It's Inspiration Time over at STAMPlorations. This week my teamies and I are showcasing stamps by our very own Shirley under her label 'The Bee's Knees'.

I decided to work with the Fowl Play to create a card inspired by the saying: I'm no Spring chicken. Here it is ...

The chicks are stamped and coloured with Promarkers.

I then used the Clouds stencil and Tempting Turquoise inks to add the fair weather cloud background, stamped and die-cut the sentiment (Sweet Spring Wishes CUTplorations Phrase Die) before layering up as seen and finishing off with a wiggly eye on the larger chick.

I am entering my card at:

AAA Cards - CAS Game #87 Shiny Spring  - went with a Spring inspired colour scheme and die-cut the word Spring from shiny gold mirror card

As mentioned earlier, this week we are showcasing stamps designed by our very own Shirley under her label 'The Bee's Knees'. All her sets will be reduced by 10% apart from the Party Girl set I used in my card which will be 20% off.

Of course Shery will still draw a winner at random from all the comments left on this month's Inspiration Posts over on the STAMPlorations Blog. Pop over to see what my teamies created and to leave a comment for your entry into their prize draw.

That's it from me for today. Have a lovely week!
