A Delicious Doodles Easter

     Here's the last of the cards until my camera is back in my hands in just few hours.  Because of the camera problems, I missed getting my DT card done for the challenge at Delicious Doodles this week (where the theme is "Fairies") but I did paper piece this fun chick popping out of her egg.  This is a new image from Teri and you can find it here.  Isn't it an adorable image to use for Easter?

Sketch is from I {Heart} Sketches 
and the paper piecing idea came from Freshly Brewed.

     That paper has been in my stash for so long, I can't even remember when or where I got it.  I know it started as a 12" X 12" piece of scrapbook paper and this is about all that's left from other projects.  This piece would have ended up in the trash but it seemed perfect for this egg and background.  BTW, the part of the background dp covered by the matted image has the hole where I cut the bit for the eggshell.  How's that for frugality?  :-D

     The chick is colored with pencil.  Both the sheer ribbon and the bow were in my stash.  The sentiment is from a rubber stamp which I masked to get just the greeting part.

     Challenges:  (There's a ton of "Easter/spring" themes this time)

     I hope your weekend is starting well.  I'll have another post this afternoon, just to show that my camera is back home, doing it's job as it should.  :-D  Thanks for visiting and Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
