Hey Chick-a-Dee

If I would have known that my buddies would be "rewarding" me so much I would have stopped smoking long a go!! lol

Look what came today from my blogging buddy Janice

**and I thank you Janice for not sending me 
items from Fanny  May candy store,
I have gained 12 lbs so far!! yikes

**my apoligies to the rest of you wonderful ladies for not posting pics of what you have sent** 
I am so bad at remembering to do so before I start playing with goodies!

Thanks for all the support and encouragement you all keep giving me :)

OK, on to my card!
Skipping Stones: Sketch #73
Basic Grey Challenges: Spring or Easter (and at least one BG item)

basic grey: kioshi buttons, lime rickey (yellow) and hopscotch paper, su card stock, stamps: skipping stones chick chat, sewing machine, su chocolate chip ink. i hand cut the hills, distressed the front one and popped the grass, and paper pieced the cute chick.

Check me out sticking to a sketch almost 100% LOL 

Now I am off to make my Christmas card for the week!!

Hope you all have a wonderful Easter :)
