Scrappy Mom's Challenge

I decided to try the Scrappy Mom's Terrific Tuesday Challenge. The challenge was to use your Simply Charmed cartridge. Here is what I came up with.
I inked the edges with the Creamy Brown
ColorBox chalk ink. I added stitching with
my sewing machine.
The *Hello, Sweet Little One* sentiment if from the
Scrappy Mom's stamp set-The Charmed Life.
The sweet face is from the Peachy Keen stamp set
PK-754 Critter Faces set A Medium
By glueing down the outer twigs of the nest-it
gave the nest a *rounded* look.

  • Peachy Keen Stamps PK-754 Critter faces SET a Medium
  • Simply Charmed cartridge
  • Create a Critter cartridge
  • AC cardstock
  • DCWV The Linen Closet stack
  • Creamy brown chalk ink
  • Scotch Quick Dry glue
  • Stampin Up Pop Dots
  • Simply Charmed cartridge pg.35
  • 2 1/2" shift chick and egg (I used my Gypsy to *hide* the face on the chick)
  • Create a Critter cartridge pg.53
  • 1 3/4" accessory nest 
I was going for one of Martha Stewarts fancy chickens for my inspiration. I used my Gypsy to *hide* the face on the baby duck. I stamped the face and turned the duck into a chick. I popped the nest up with pop dots and glued the twig edges to create a rounded look to the nest. I know I will be making more of these cards with different chicks and beautifully colored speckled eggs. Perfect for spring!

I have to finish up valentines for tomorrow's post. Enjoy the rest of your weekend :)
