Fred She Said Blog Hop-Hey Chickie

Welcome to the FRED SHE SAID SPRING BLOG HOP! If you got here by way of Donna, you are on the right track. If you just happen by my blog, please start at the beginning at Tracy Lynn-Fred She Said Blog. You are to collect a word along the way to be eligible for the prizes. One random winner will receive a $25 CAD (Canadian Dollars) from FSS Store, $25 GC for CropStop, and 2 Digi Paper Sets from Bearly Mine Designs.
We would love if you would leave a comment so we know you were here!!!

Here is the order of the blog hop in case you lose your way along the way:
Tracey-Lynn, Donna, Carol (that's me), Tracey McD, Darsie, Robin, Danielle, Nancy, Anne, Marlena, Michelle, and the Fred She Said Blog.


My creations for the blog hop were made with the new colored Easter Chicky which you can find here at the Fred She Said Store. One of the fun things about being on Tracey's design team is that she will ask for requests. Well last year I just loved the freebie chick that she did and asked if she would do it with the chick cracking out of the egg.

Well be still my heart. This is what she sent us and I am just over the moon for this image....can you tell. I have created a egg shaped Easter Basket, and an Egg shaped easel card, and an envelope to put this cute card in. This is the Easter Basket. I was able to find some really cute little chocolate chicks made by Lindt that you can see peeking from inside that match it perfect.

Here is a close up of this very cute image. I used some tiny prima flowers, the Martha Stewart frond and branch punch as well as the butterfly punch. I attached tiny gold rhinestones to the flowers. I punched the lacy part of the egg with the Martha Stewart corner Gothic Arches and fence border punch. I used lots of stickles to make this sparkle and shine....my favorite embellishment!!! The edges have been distressed with Rangers tea dye distress ink.

This is the very sweet easel card. As you can see, it matches the Easter Basket perfectly. This little set will be going to my Mom for Easter. I know she will love it.

I made an extra egg to slip under the bottom. It is attached with a brad and swings out so I can sign the card. I have a hard time signing my cards as I don't like messing them up!!! lol So I like the added feature and try to make something to write my message that is hidden in all my easel cards.


My word for the blog hop is - Hippety
