Happy Easter

Hi Everyone!
Gee, here it is Friday night once again and it's looking like I don't have a life! Au Contrair (sp?)... I've got all my Blogland friends!!

This card is my entry into the Sketches With Heart #2 challenge at Heart Song Inspirations. I apologize to all the lovely girls there that I'm not using one of their digi images for my card!! I'm new to digi's and although I could download the file there was no way I was able to open When I have a few minutes this weekend I'll do some researching on the net as to what program I should use, etc. Until then.... I'm so sorry!

The stamp used was from Elzybells Art Stamps #E0085 Chick Trio. The dp's are from SEI and Keepin' It Real by Amy Hurley. I've been trying to use bits and pieces of my stash to fill in the rest. Ribbon is from WalMart and I made the glue dots myself in two sizes.  The circle and circle border were cut on the Cricut.

Yes, the image is kind of small for the sketch but I went through everything I had that was Easterish and it was either too big, or too small. Now it sounds like I'm talking about the three bears! I started putting it together last Sunday after seeing what our sketch for the week was.  This was one of those cards where you put it in a spot you'll see it a lot and you keep thinking... It's okay, It looks like heck, It looks spectacular, It needs a whole lot of something! These were only thoughts as I knew if I were to say them outloud for a few days people would wonder if I'm on 'crack!' The finished product was acheived after dinner tonight. I kept adding glue dots to fill in and make up for the small image. It's not my favourite but I made the deadline!

I can hardly wait to see the sketch for next week so I can find my mojo and brain cells that seemed to get away from me for the last 10 days.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

So cute and I love the bright cheery colors! I'm so glad you came and joined us again at Heart Song inspirations, hopefully we'll see you next week too:)

Sheree your card is adorable! I love the image. At least it is a picture of chicks with eggs instead of rabbits with eggs. Who ever heard of a rabbit laying an egg - go figure!

Tell us more about coloring glue dots?!? Won't the card stick to whatever is on top of it? Is there a way to remove the stickiness?

Inquiring (and crafting) minds want to know!

No problem about not using a Heart Song digi! But keep trying!! Once you get them figured out, they are great! Resizing options are endless for creating whatever you need!! :) Keep trying, and please keep playing along with our sketch challenges and sharing your adorable work.
Hope you have a great week!!

Hi Sheree love your card the colours are lovely thanks for comments about my papers and steampunk card a lot of people seem to be doing this style of card and every one is different it's just a mix of metal bits like the washers and nuts I used some thingvintage and you can also use cogs and clock or watch workings as for the papers they are so easy I did mine by getting a piece of photo paper and using a mixture of alcohol inks normal inks mics and cosmic shimmers and just played around the only prob with doing this is you can never make 2 the same lol I also used twinkling H20's wet them and dipped an old tooth brush in it ans sprayed it all over for a speckled effect you get really messy but boy it's loads of fun lol you should have a go if you don't like what comes out it's only a piece of paper at the end of the day so nothing lost

Sheree, your card is really cute! I had problems opening digi stamps when I first started too, but discovered that some of them come in zipped files. You can download a free program to unzip them at Zip Reader. It works great & you will love digi images!
Thanks for the comments on my card. Yes, it is from an actual Stampin Up stamp, not a digi. I've used the truck many times for guy cards.
