Wee Chicks Sketch

Another lovely sketch from Renee Lynch for the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog!  This week's is very versatile.  I got a sneak peek of the Mischief Makers' samples and they are so awesome!


Here is my card:


This week I used the L'il Buddies set with papers from the Melissa Frances "Kitschy Kitchen" Collection.  I just purchased them and have NO idea why I waited so long.  What an awesome collection of papers, and just my style, too!

Cut the dotted paper with the little pinked square from PTI's Button Boutique die collection.  I colored the chicks with Copic markers.  Stamped them twice to save me from having to cut out those teeny little feet!  I then popped up their bodies with dimensionals.

Can't wait to see where this week's sketch will lead YOU!  Upload your creation HERE by next Friday, March 16th.  Be sure to include at least one Waltzingmouse Stamps image on your creation, so that you will be eligible to be the randomly-selected player who will win a WMS stamp set of choice!

*DON'T FORGET!*  Next Saturday, March 17 is St. Patrick's Day!  It is also the Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Party, and of COURSE the theme is St. Patrick's Day/Irish/green!!  The blog party will start at 1:30 PM EST and you will have a whole day to upload your creations to the Mr. Linky group on Claire's blog!  I can't wait!

You know I love these little chicks and they look wonderful on the pinked squares! Amazing how that paper looks like cloth. And using pearls for the grain is so clever. I'll need to CASE that idea! Love your choice of sentiment too!

Cute as always, but what puts it over the edge for me? Those little pearls for chick #2 to peck at. Ingenious.
