easter tweeties (Neat and Tangled, ATCAS, SSS)

These little tweeties will be adorning DS and DD's Easter baskets this year.  Yep, they are well into their teenage years but they still like looking for the hidden basket on Easter morning.  Wonder where they got that (hee hee)?

Wanted to play at Little Tangles where the challenge is Shaped Cards.  I remembered that there is a free digi of an adorable little chickie and decided to fussy cut him/her into a shaped tag for the baskets.


Printed them far enough down on CS to be able to make a fold at the top before coloring with watercolors and fussy cutting.  Hid the fold with the bow or cowboy hat (a paper-pieced Kim Hughes stamp from CHF) and grounded them with a touch of green watercolored grass.  Such a sweet image, don't ya think?

Also hooking up at:
Addicted to CAS - #9 Spring (these are certainly springy and pretty CAS in my book)
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes.

Hope the Easter bunny's good to ya.



Supplies tags:
Paper: CS The Paper Co., PP Martha Stewart
Stamps: digi Neat and Tangled, hat CHF
Ink : Versafine
Tools: scissors
Other: watercolors

Great hiding of the fold, maria. The cowboy hat is the perfect size. Super-cute, love the grass that you left too (skinny extremities always throw me for a loop when fussy cutting!)
