Easter Chickens!

Hello chums!
What a glorious day it is today! The sun is shining, the birds are singing.....wonderful.
I know I haven't really been posting much this year because of with everything happening with my dad; but I am getting back on track now and hope to be posting a lot more makes. I also have something exciting in the pipeline that you will all be able to join in (watch this space).
I would also like to get back to doing a regular spot showcasing makes using the Cricut Mini. You never know, it might tempt you to pop one on your birthday or Christmas wish list (just make sure you leave it so it can be seen/found/read. 
Anyhoo! Talking of makes; I know Easter has been and gone (there are still some choccy eggs left - yummy) but I have another little card to show you.

What you need...

Patterned papers: TV Dinner 8"x8" Mini Deck - Cosmo Cricket
Card stock: white
Stamps: Picoti Picota - Artemio
Ink pad: Onyx Black - Versafine
Promarkers: Apple cider, Cocktail Pink, Pineapple Crush
Ribbon: dusky pink
Gems: clear

What you do...

Stamp three chickens and the eggs across a piece of white card 12.5cm wide. Colour in and mat onto the bottom of a 12.5cm square blank, trim any excess.

Cover the top two thirds with the quirky squares paper. Tie a loose knot in a length of ribbon and attach across the bottom edge of the paper.

Print out a sentiment, trim and fix to the right of the blank just above the ribbon and finish off with a few gems.

This paper pad from Cosmo Cricket is so me :o) it's very retro with lots of quirky images and wonky lines. The colours are muted tones of pinks, greens, yellows and creams. Reminds me of some of those 1950's cartoons. Love it!

Tomorrow I'm in London for the launch of the new Cricut Explore, hosted by the fab Cricut EU and Ranieri Communications. So looking forward to it. I went to the Cricut Mini event last year and it was a fantastic day, with lots of demos, makes and goodies. Why not check out their website? http:/

For now though, back to the commissions for Crafts Beautiful and PaperCrafter magazines.

Take care and thanks for stopping by xxxx
