Hello and welcome to Monday – I’m happy as I have a day off from work today *woohoo*.  Our theme over at stamp with fun challenge this week is ‘Easter’ and I decided to make a card and matching chocolate holders (I used viscount mint biscuits – yum).  The super cute image I used is from DigiStamp Boutique and is called ‘Easter chick’ and is from the ‘a touch of spring’ set of 4 digi images.  I coloured the image with my promarkers and cut it out with my circle nesties.  The gingham paper is a very old pack that was from Joanna Sheen and the patterned paper is doodlebug.  The plain card is from the papermill shop.  I decided to have a go at distressing (although I’m not very good at it) – it did help though that my blade on my paper trimmer is very blunt, so I was already half way there lol!  I added a bit of doodling with my fineliner pen and deliberately was a bit sloppy (honest guv!).  The ribbon is from my stash and the little rosebud flower is from wild orchid crafts.  The sentiment is from PB and the lollipop flower was created by stamping lots of circles and roughing them up a bit lol!  The brad and adhesive pearls are from my stash. 

There is a prize on offer this week courtesy of Paper cupcakes and the lucky winner will receive this cute digi image called ‘nose cuddles’:


The rest of the DT have created some beautiful samples for your inspiration so please pop and take a look. 

My card fits in with the following challenges:
