Our theme for the next few weeks is Easter/Spring Cards 4 Kids. This year, the deadline for Easter cards is March 16. Non-Easter-specific cards featuring bunnies, chickies, and all things spring have longer shelf lives and can be used for a variety of occasions.
Our sponsors for this challenge are Bugaboo and Tonic Studios. Bugaboo is offering a prize of 4 digis, while Tonic Studios is offering 8 colors of Crystal Drops Gloss. Our thanks to both of these wonderful companies for their support of SAS4Kids.
For my card, I used the fun, fun, fun Hey, Chickie image from Bugaboo.

I'm beginning to understand I can do most (all?) of the same things with digis as I did with old-fashioned stamped images. So, I printed several copies of this little chickie to do some paper piecing for a little bit of dimension.
Did you notice those blood-shot looking eyes? Turns out the Stickle color ran a little after applying Glossy Accents. Not sure if these blood-shot eyes are a good thing or not. But, there not going anywhere now. LOL :)
Finally, this design was inspired by an Operation Write Home sketch. I used oldie-but-goodie OWH Sketch #12... by the uber talented Carol L. :)
Hope you'll join us for this challenge over at SAS4Kids. In the meantime, thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
