Easter Parade

Good Morning!  I hope everyone had a good weekend.  I got together with some friends and stamped.  I always enjoy those days.  It is alot of fun to share the fun!

Today we have a really fun Challenge for Going Grey with Scrap-Creations and a wonderful sponsor!  The challenge is to Pick 3 of the following to use on your card.  Ribbon, Flowers, Pearls, Glitter, Buttons, Charm.  I decided to use almost all of them.  I have ribbon, flowers, pearls, glitter and a button.  If I can put 5 of 6 you can make a card with 3!  The sponsor is a Heart Song Designs!  You need to check them out.  They have such great images.  I had a fun time working with the chicks on this card.

Going Grey also has some new DT's.  Please welcome Tonya Sarnowski, Jovita Torres and Frances Rodriguez to our family!!  You need to check out their card ins addition to our returning DT's, Mary, Jackie, Kristine and Kristen from Going Grey.

The other wonderful challenges this card fits are:

Barely Mine - Sketch - I bought a couple packages of their digi paper and I am in love!!  I found myself matching up every image I color with their paper and thinking it was perfect.  I loved this sketch and couldn't wait to use it.
Cooking it up with Kate - Sparkle, Shine & Shimmer. - I love glitter and I put it on the flowers and my button has the glitter built in!
Crafts & Me - Use Yellow - Using yellow on my card says Spring is here!  It is still cool in the NE but I loved using it on this card.
Paper Pretties - Bring on the Bling - I do like using bling.  I have pearls on the flowers and the card and glitter on the flowers and the button.
Color Create - Pastels (Easter Optional) - I love the pastel colors on the paper I used and when I saw this stamp I thought Easter Parade.
Craft us Crazy - Easter/Spring - I love making Easter cards with chicks and bunnies.
Fun with Shapes - Easter -  I thought these chicks were so cute to use on my first Easter Card of the year.
Paper Cutz - Easter - Little chicks are so cute at Easter.  I love the real soft cute ones and I love using them on cards.
Simply Create - Do it yourself - I did everything on this card myself, including making the flower out of my ruffled ribbon
Card Makin Mama's - Embellish it - I love embellishments.  I have ribbon, pearls, button and my flower on this card.
Craft your Days Away - Spots & Stripes - I have the polka dot yellow paper and the yellow dots around my sayings on this card.
Little Claires - Any celebration with Spring theme or Colors - Easter is a celebration and the blue, yellow and pink in this card are spring colors.
Creative Cowgirls - Spring or Easter - I made this as a Spring & Easter Card.
Card Cupids - Dots and/or Stripes - I have both on this card.  There are dots on my yellow CS and Stripes with the Daisey's on the background.
The Corrosive - Pastel Colors - I love bright spring colors and I love the yellow and blue on this.
Stamp Something - Digi Day - I love Digi Day!!!!    This one with the chicks is so cute!!
Delightful Challenge - Flowers - I love flowers.  I have them on the BG, the image and I made my own out of the ribbon!
Raise the Bar - Spring Showers or anything that has to do with Weather - Appreciating a sunny day for a parade is Weather related!!
Ooh La La - Easter - I love Easter images.  In this case it is cute little chicks.
Stamp with Fun - Easter - Don't you love making pretty Easter Cards?  I do.
My Partner in Crafting Crime - Layer it Up - I love layers.  I think it adds alot of dimension to all of my cards.
Stamps R Us - Easter - I love making Easter cards.  They are so cheery.  
Digital Tuesday - Easter Parade - LOL when I saw this I knew I had to play!!!

Thank you for stopping by.  I really appreciate it.  I hope you like my card.  Thanks to everyone who leaves a comment.  I look forward to reading all of them.
