Teri over at Delicious Doodles released a new image today called "Easter Chick". He's such a cutie that I thought I had to have a play ........ or two!!
I follow lots of blogs and love seeing what other people create. One blog I do follow avidly as I love my Spellbinders is Christine Emberson whose blog is called Hope and Chances. The title of her blog was quite apt for me recently. I make my cards to sell to raise funds for different charities so funds are very limited. Bloggers worldwide often send me bits-and-pieces to help my cause but I enter challenges and blog candy and put anything that I win to that good cause as well ie "hope" and "chances" and recently I was blessed to win some of the new gold corner Spellbinder dies from Christine. This is my first time to play with them and I love them. They are perfect for any card/creation but I think the shapes lend well to male cards/creations.
At Christmas time I saw Christine make some candy wrappers on Create and Craft so I thought I'd make some with this gorgeous chick from Delicious Doodles. I have coloured the image in with Promarkers and knew from the start I wanted to do some Zentangle on the chick's egg. The backing paper I have used is K&Co which I got for my birthday last year. I have finished the top wrapper with some die-cut corners, orange fibres, peel-off sentiment and some Papermania Glitterations.
Here is a little sneaky peek of what is inside. To measure the candy wrapper I used my Crafter's Companion Boxer board and scored to take into account the width and depth of the bars of chocolate. Bother wrappers were different dimensions as one bar of chocolate was thicker than the other!!!
I am entering these wrappers into the following challenges:
Celebrate the Occasion - Spring is in the air
Crafty Sentiments - Hello spring
Deep Ocean - Cute and cuddly
LEJ Designs - Things with wings
Word Art Wednesday - Anything goes
Delightful Sketches - Here's one for the boys (I've used the corner dies rather than flowers/other female orientated embellishments as I have made these for my two boys)

Polkadoodles - Easter
