easter greetings

I have created this Easter card using this Easter chick image that Jolanda has sent me from her shop, Cards Etc. Shop. Isn't it just adorable?


Jolanda is from the Netherlands. She has started her own on-line shop. She sells her own Digi Stamps and Cuttingfiles…

Digi Stamps – printable stamps to resize, print and colour
Cuttingfiles - files in SVG or Scut format to cut with your Cricut (Expression) using the 'Sure Cuts a Lot' or 'Make The Cut' software! – bags and boxes and shaped cards.

All these files are downloads, so no shipping costs and no waiting for the mail carrier!
And you can pay with PayPal. You can hop over to Jolanda’s store here.

I wanted to use both images on the same card, so I decide to do a gate fold card. I went looking through the current challenges and found this sketch at Sketch Saturday.

While searching through the challenges, I also found the following challenges that I can use this card as my entry to:

Stamp With Fun -- Challenge #51 - Easter
Stamping for the Weekend -- Challenge #35 - Easter
A Spoon Full of Sugar -- Challenge 95 - Easter
Allsorts -- Week 44 Spring is in the Air
Secret Crafter Saturday -- Challenge 75 - Spring has Sprung
Crafty Catz -- Challenge # 24 - Spring
The second image is of course for the inside of the card.


That's it for today. Thanks for visiting. Appreciate you dropping by. Enjoy your day!


Stamps: Digi stamps from Card Etc. Shop. Sentiment is computer generated.
DP's: Chatterbox Scrapbook Walls violet dahlias and light parlor stripe. I don't know the make of the ochre-coloured paper--not writing on the back.
Tools: Martha Stewar border punch rings, Marvy Uchida scallop circle punch, Colluzle circle template.
Misc.: Reflections half pearls.
