You have seen the little chick from Honeycomb Happiness stamp set in previous post just saying Oh, Hello

5 Honey Comb Happiness Chick & Egg Easter Saleabration 2016 #stampinup www.stampstodiefor.com 2b

I thought it would be fun to put him hatching out of an egg for Easter.  It is not too early to start planning for your Easter Cards and Treat Holders, it is just around the corner on March 27.

So for your Mom's next big day or just because stamp her up a special card.  Nothing means more to a Mom than something hand made by their child no matter how old you get.

This year for Christmas I received an ornament our 37 year old son made.  It touched my heart strings as only a special gift from a child can do. 

Paul Waggoner Christmas Ornament 2015 -2

He melted crayons on the inside a clear class ornament.

He then used acrylic paint to add his finger prints and then dated and signed the ornament with a Gold Metallic Sharpie.  

A true treasure!

Our February Border Buddy cards will feature the Botanical Blooms and Botanical Builder Framelits Dies. Don't you LOVE it when you don't have to fussy cut out stamped images?
