Friends with Flair, and a Happy Easter!

 
     Morning blogging friends!  We here wee are heading into a holiday weekend, and a beautiful one.  I just realized I have been so busy, that I have not posted since last Friday's FWF!  Please be sure to check out all of the wonderful creators that have linked up, this week.  There is always that chance to win a prize for either commenting, or adding your Unity creation to the list!

     My card uses the KOM from April 2011, called "Small Things Matter Most".  I saw this adorable little chick and sentiment, and decided to run with it.  I always love seeing the dotted highlights people create with their Copic markers, and gave it a go.  I think it created some movement for my tumbling chick, what do you think?

     My papers are fromMy Minds Eye, and their Gnome Sweet Gnome collection. 

I would also like to enter this for the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamps - Anything Goes

OWH midweek throwdown - Use stripes

Unity Friends with Flair - Anything Unity

     I would also like to wish everyone a very happy, and blessed Easter!  I will be in and out of town, so this might be my only chance at wishes.  Just remember to have control, and back away from the jellybeans!

Well I don't know if I like your advise. I was hoping to binge eat the Jelly Beans. You're no fun. !!!! LOL I love this card and I really like the dotted highlights. It does give the impression of movement. I have always been afraid to try it. Thought I might ruin the whole image, but I guess I can try to be as adventurous as you, after all I'm going to eat Jelly Beans this weekend. Stay safe in your travels and enjoy.

Mary Anne, this is the best card I've ever seen you make! I love that chick! And the dots -- definitely look like movement.

No jelly beans for me. I don't like the pure sugar sweetness of them.
