Cute Chickies Blog Hop


Welcome to the next stop on the Chickies blog hop.  You should have hopped here from Andrea's blog.  I am sure she had something amazing for you to look at!  If you didn't come from Andrea's blog and you would like to start at the beginning of the hop, just pop over to the DeNami Design blog.

If you are like me, as soon as you saw the chickie stamps from DeNami Design you fell in love!  My collection of chickie stamps just keeps growing!  I started out trying to make a CAS card, but I just never seem to be able to manage it.  Here is my project for this hop.


I cut a window in the card using a scalloped circle die.  I cut the frame for the window using the same scalloped circle die and a slightly larger one.  I stamped the Chickie in Balloon and colored it with Copics.  I cut it out and popped it up in the window using a bit of foam.

Don't forget to leave a comment because every comment gives you a chance to win one of two $20 gift certificates.  You have until 11:59 PST on Monday, February 13th to leave a comment on all of the blogs.  The winners will be chosen randomly from all of the comments.  In addition, one $20 gift certificate will be given to a random participant (design team not eligible).

It's time for you to hop on over to Suzanne's blog.  I will bet she has something wonderful in store for you!
