Happy Easter Chicks with Egg Cart

Coffee of the Day - Hazelnut

I have to start out my post with a great big apology to everyone. I have been feeling absolutely horrid for so long, and have really been taking it out on everyone around me - both online and in person. I am so very sorry and ask your forgiveness. no matter how I am feeling, it is no excuse to be anything less than kind. all I can say is that I will try to do better.

I did manage to get to my craft room today for a little while. I really want to get a card made for everyone in Lauryn's family. if you aren't familiar with Lauryn's story, you can read more about her on the Facebook page that has been created by her family. she is the 2 year old grand-daughter of Linda Payne, who many people know for her talent and contributions in the crafting community.

I used images from the Crafty Secrets digital set, 'Spring Chicks.' papers are from the Basic Grey Fresh Cut collection (I've told you how much I love this one, haven't I?!?!), flower is Prima, twine is from Target, ticket punch is EK Success, kraft reinforcement sticker is from The Kraft Outlet, and everything else is from my stash. I added a cute little yellow envelope, a doily, some buttons & sequins, a bit of washi tape, and faux stitching. oh yes, I also used my SU! ink squirty tool. so love that thing! :)

I hope Lauryn's mom and dad like the card. make sure you stop by the Lots of Love for Lauryn blog to see what's up in preparation for the card drive blog hop on Monday. I had to pull out of helping out with it, but I still plan to take part in the hop. so many artists have provided artwork available for a donation and lots of prizes, too. :)

Thanks for entering your beautiful creation in my Victorian Spring challenge! I love the little buttons and sequins and stitching -- the whole effect reminds me of what I would find in my mother's vintage sewing basket, which I loved.
