Sassy Chick with Amanda

I have loved every minute playing with Sassy Chick!  Between the clever sentiments and darling icons, this set is perfect for spring!

I love making small Easter baskets and filling them with fun treats.  I die cut this basket using this file and decorated the sides with grass and bright flowers.  I stamped a happy sun and adhered it to a little straw.

Each side of the basket is covered with grassy hills.  I stamped a bunch of bright flowers and made a border along the front of the basket.  I wish my flower beds looked this good in real life!

Almost every year we get new chicks here on the farm and they are such funny little creatures.  I layered some grass and used the tulip blossom as an eggshell.  One little chick thought he would try to fly and got a little turned around!

I couldn't resist putting this cute little chick in a pair of bright red boots.  I made the puddle by scribbling circles with a watercolor pencil and then going over the circles with a water brush.  Super easy!

Happy Spring!
