Happy Easter

Happy Easter! This is the last Easter project that I have to share with you this year. It uses part of the Dancing Egg & Chick image from Whimsy & Stars Studio. You can see the entire image further down in my post.

2012-04-10 WSS Chick tag WM

This tag started when I was sadly looking at all the little scraps that were the only remains of my favorite papers from the October Afternoon Sidewalk pad. I decided to stitch them together to make a tag. I actually stitched the scraps of DP to a scrap piece of white CS, which I glued to my tag, so that the back would remain nice.

Here is a look at the whole Dancing Egg & Chickie image.

Just a quick heads up - next week Mabelle will be giving away a free digital image on the Whimsy & Stars Studio Facebook page. Stop by and “like” her page now so that you don’t miss out!

You won’t see me around much this coming week. My daughter is on spring break and I am going to take the week off blogging, try to stay off the computer, and enjoy my time with my family. I’ll be back posting as usual the week of April 16th.

Thank you for stopping by!
