Easter Bonnets


Hello folks!  It feels like ages since I’ve posted anything.  But not to worry – I have two cards I made for the Out of a Hat Challenge this week.  They are asking for Easter bonnets and after searching the internet for ideas, I decided to opt for a couple of vintage Easter pictures with bonnets in them.

Easter ChicksThese little Easter chicks are so adorable and a sure sign of spring.  I wish we were seeing spring here.  We’ve had nothing but snow, snow, snow!

Another Easter ChickMy second card showcases a different sort of Easter chick!  She’s just hatched too but hasn’t quite come out of her shell yet ;0)  The strip of patterned paper down the right side was punched with a Martha Stewart border punch and then inked with Desert Sand ink.  The focal image was framed using kraft card stock, cut on the Cricut, and then mounted onto a piece of aqua blue card stock.  Lastly, the paper flowers were glued down the left side and adorned with pearls.

That’s it from me today.  I will just make it under the wire for the challenge so I must be off to add my post!  Have a lovely week and happy crafting!

  2. LOVE your Easter chick! The whole thing is FABulously SHABby chic, but I esp like how you captured the essence of the pussy-willow, with those glitter paper/pearl elements in the corners.
