A "Chicky" Thank You

I am still on Cloud 9 from Stampin' Up's OnStage event that was held on Saturday. Two of my fabulous downline friends and I made the trek to Richmond, Virginia for it. I am excited for the new upcoming catalog! My wish list is a mile long already!  And the free stuff we all came home with was FABULOUS! Plus, spending time with these two gals, there was bound to be lots of laughs, stamping, and little sleep to go with it all.

This is also Jack's spring break, so he is helping me hold down the fort this busy week. Besides work, I have to get Jack a haircut sometime, he needs new shoes for school and everyday, he wants to visit the Easter Bunny, * tomorrow is my birthday! Woo Hoo! *, on Saturday we are hosting an Easter Egg Hunt and brunch for the family (Jack did help me fill 160 eggs),  and I have to help the bunny finish his shopping this week for Sunday. Oh how I wish I was Samantha off Bewitched that I could just wiggle my nose and get things done. Guess it's not a 'break' for me this week! Ha!

With Easter on the brain this week, the sketch at Create with Connie and Mary instantly had me thinking about bunnies and baskets. I decided to use the Basket Bunch  bundle to create a thank you card for a friend. Even though it is an "Easter-ish" set, I think it could be used for so much more! This little chick decided to bring her friend, rabbit a basket of carrots as a thank you. How sweet, right? The coordinating framelits in the bundle, make quick work of all the cutting. I decided to also emboss the Soft Sky card stock with the Falling Petals Embossing Folder to add a touch of dimension. I hope you and your family have a very blessed Easter! Happy Stamping!


  1. So sweet! Simply perfect for Easter! The flower stamped side combined with the embossed background make this extra special, I think!
