Easter Chicks

Hi Everyone, I really don't know where my time is going, I was going to make a lot of Easter cards, I had so many ideas, then I looked around and there wouldn't have been time to post them. SO - it's this card at least 3 of them, the only kind I made. I'm ashamed to say this went to my brothers and wives. The greetings inside were slightly different and I had to rush them to the post.

Anyway, I've been using my digital stash, the paper is from years ago, I copied it to my new computer in 2015, but I've had it years before then. I thought it may give them a smile with the cute chicks.
paper - BDR Hugware
Easter chicks - The Hungry jpeg - 3D'd
print and cut on the Cameo
sentiment - computer generated 3D'd
Nuvo Crystal Glaze
Spectrum Noir clear sparkle pen
die - Tonic rectangle 

Now to bore you with a few more photos of the garden
I came home after posting the cards and saw in the front garden in the bright sunshine, what I thought were lilies, then realised they were tulips open wide, what do you think?

I was also surprised to see the Rhododendron bursting out.

The weeping Birch is also springing open

The Berbaris is flowering

 The white Heather and the Spirea 
competing to see who can flower the most.

The Euphorbia putting on it's lime green show 

You'll be glad to know that that's the last of the garden for a little! while.

Keep and safe and well Everyone, I hope you are keeping busy,
 all I can say, I'm sure I wasn't this busy before lockdown!

Happy Easter

Your garden looks lovely, everything is certainly starting to spring into life with this warm weather - we have been busy planting seeds in the greenhouse, all vegetables though!

What a lovely bright, happy card Faith, the chicks are so cute. Beautiful photos of your garden, it’s much further ahead than ours. I too can’t get my head round Easter this year probably because our routines have all gone to pot at the moment xx

Nooooo........ I love your garden photos! I have daffodils blooming right now despite the fact we had freezing rain right before they popped open. But sadly on Easter Sunday we are supposed to get snow so I will enjoy these beauties for a few days!
Your card is so adorable! I never had the patience to learn the Cameo so it sits unused. Your card sure does look like spring has arrived! And your garden, too!

What a cute card with the adorable chicks & sweet floral paper! Looks like the plants are about the same at your place as around here. Lots of tulips in the neighborhood & my earliest rhodie is in bloom. It's similar to yours--a beautiful pink.
