Papertrey Pallenge

If you follow the Papertrey PALs blog, you know we've started back up again with our Pallenges. Rebecca hosted the first one and challenged us to create an Easter project. I knew I was going to have a hard time with this as I don't really have anything Easter themed. And DH's grandma always gets Lexi an Easter basket, so I didn't need to do anything along those lines.

So, I figured I'd somehow do a card. As I was searching the dollar bins at Michaels (those bins are wonderful!), I came across an adorable little chick stamp. It's wood mount, but I figured I'd try it out. Hey, it was only $1!

Here's my final product :) I had to stamp him a couple times because my fingers got so sweaty trying to cut him out, that he had black splotches all over his face! I don't do well with cutting, so I get nervous I'll screw it up!

I took a bunch of scrap papers and cut them with my 1" square punch and then used my sewing machine to make it look like a fun spring quilt. And I did put a panel of lemon zest inside to cover up all my sewing!

Thanks for the challenge, Rebecca! Come join me on Monday as I'll be hosting the next four weeks and our next challenge!

I love this little chickie! So cute. I'm jealous of your stitching too. I always admire cards with sewing but have never tried it myself. Great job Liz.
