Hello Everyone and a warm welcome to my 90th follower. I know people come and go and maybe tomorrow there will only be 89 but for today there are 90 so, a big thank you to all of you and to the many who drop by and leave wonderful comments.
Well Spring still seems far away as I look out of the window at the dark clouds, the cold wind and the daffodil buds which are still waiting patiently to burst into flower
Thought I might help Spring along by entering two challenges.
At Tando Creative Challenges this time the theme is New Beginnings and what could be a better new beginning than the birth of a new life. When I was a chemistry lab technician at a large school they had eggs every Spring. All had been tested to make sure they contained chicks and they were for the first year lessons really. What softies we all became as word spread that one of the shells had a hole pecked in it and all the staff flocked from far and wide to watch the chick immerge. Not a pretty site with its feather stuck down and looking all beak and eyes but in no time at all all fluffy and cute. ahh
This is the tag I made for the challenge. The cute chick and eggs were a free digi image I found online and I printed it onto parchment and coloured it from behind. The 'new beginning' is printed onto parchment as well. The ribbon is coloured with distressed stain -come on Spring !
The second challenge is Show us Your Twinchies which is a challenge not to be missed. Always wonderful ideas for these small works of art. The theme this time is Spring.
All the stamps are from a little set I have had for ages--it is a Docraft set and may have been free on a magazine a long time ago. I did draw the simple birds--I guess you could tell that I did lol. The images look a bit shiny in real life because I found lots of Sakura pens I had forgotten about so I used those. Nice to find things you had forgotten about.
Thank you for dropping by
Love Chrissie xx
