Smiley from Good Tuesday morning!  Yesterday I had an email from my buddies over at, Stan and Russell, that they had uploaded some new images.  I’ve been waiting for the colored Alice in Wonderland images because I’ve had an idea running through my mind for a few weeks now, which they did get uploaded.  However, they also uploaded a bunch of new Easter images!  I couldn’t resist downloading one with little yellow Smiley from millan.netSmiley from to work with.

I think that when I was a little girl I received a live chick for Easter one year.  I really don’t remember it, but my mother told me I did.  What I do remember is going to visit relatives with my grandparents one time, and my grandmother pointing out a goose that was my Easter chick.  I only remember seeing it one time, but that memory lingers with me . . . . it was a darn big goose!

Anyhoo, here’s my first chick card . . . I’m sure there’s going to be a few more because I absolutely love the new images!


I teamed the image up with The Stamp Simply Lilac Avenue Kit, sponging the edges of all the paper before sewing the background layers to the base.  I added just the image, but the design looked so bare to me that I made a frame from the glittery sheet that matched the background.  If you look closely, you can see the glitter on the frame.

Well, I have another doctor’s appointment today and then I’m going to visit with my uncle, maybe a class tomorrow, and then my baby . . . Kate is getting married on Friday!  Did I tell you?  I know I posted on Facebook when I found out but I probably haven’t said anything here.  They are going to the courthouse since they just bought a house  . . . saving money bless their hearts . . . smart kids too . . .

Anyhoo, thanks for stopping by today and remember  . . . enjoy the adventures that come your way today, because life is short!Smiley from

  16. As usual, beautiful card! Have you every made anything that looked crappy? Don’t think so!! Congratulations on your daughter’s marriage. Smart choice not to have a big wedding. I don’t know about other areas but here in NY having a wedding is a very expensive proposition. My daughter and son in law chose not to have a big wedding and “eloped” in Antigua. As a result they were able to buy a house after being married only one year. Much more important than the big fancy reception. The most important thing is that they’re happy!!

  17. Congratulations becoming a new mom-in-law; you’ll make a great one! Your card is adorable and so spring-looking; lucky is the person who receives it 🙂

  18. Gorgeous image and card, Sherry! Wow! Congrats to Kate on getting hitched! Smart kid saving all that money

  19. This is beautiful. I love purple and yellow together. One of my guest bedrooms is painted yellow and I painted pansies around the window, door and closet. I have an Aunt who made me a beautiful quilt using the same colors. The room is so feminine. I went to Twisted Sisters site and they have some beautiful images. TFS.
