For My Sweet Friend

It's another midway post for
Craftin' Desert Diva's Linky Party!
This week we have a color challenge.
I know that Easter was yesterday, but I want you to know that these sweet chick cards can be used for so much more. The tag on mine says For My Sweet Friend. But these could be given out all spring with a tag that says Hello or Thank You or how about Thinking of You. The opportunity to give a smile with one of these cute 3.5x3.5 cards is endless! The set of spring cards comes with four different designs and the Tiny Tags stamps will give you many options for a sentiment.

For the eyes, I masked off most of a face stamp from the Winter Faces Assortment by Peachy Keen. Masking is a great technique on stamps to only use the portions of a stamp you want. It helps you to use your stamps in a variety of ways that you otherwise would not be able to.
Supplies Used:
My Scrap Chick Cut Files: Spring Faces Cards
Doodlebug Designs: Hello Spring
Trendy Twine: Bubblegum Tafffy
My Craft Spot: Tiny Tags
Peachy Keen Stamps: Winter Faces Assortment
Bazzill: Cardstock
I hope you will join us at Craftin' Desert Divas and enter into the Color Challenge Linky Party! You have until Sunday to enter.
Here are the colors for the challenge.
