Addicted to Stamps and More! - Addicted to Colors Challenge #38 {Regal Rose, Sahara Sand and Tempting Turquoise}

Hello dear friends and blog followers!  I have another Easter card to share with you for the ATS&M Addicted to Colors Challenge #38 {Regal Rose, Sahara Sand and Tempting Turquoise}.  

I got this darling little stamp during a visit to a Hobby Lobby.  Oh My Goodness - have you ever been in one of those stores? It is an awesome experience for crafty people.  I'm actually glad that we don't have one of those stores locally, as I would spend too much money there. But it sure was fun to visit.  I really was almost overwhelmed after a bit as there was so much to look at and touch.  But then I spotted this darling chick stamp and in my basket it went - just too cute to pass up :o)  I literally could have spent hours in there but my husband and son started acting like monkeys until I couldn't ignore them anymore and had to leave (so sad - but probably best for my pocketbook). Those two ya-whos (my husband and son) have figured out how to get me out of a store when they've had enough by acting ridiculous. One time they wanted to get out of Target and were following me around with a Whoopie Cushion - ducking in and out of the aisles and laughing hysterically (can you just imagine?). I just kept ignoring them until people started looking at us all very strangely. Then I decided it was probably time to go - since we do go there quite often and it would be embarrassing to be kicked out by the management.  My daughter just starts complaining about her feet hurting - that's a little easier to tolerate, until she decides to just plunk herself in the middle of the aisle and whine for a "driving" cart (oh for crying out loud!).  I guess you can figure out why I usually avoid shopping with all of them as much as I can - lol!  It's a little better to take them grocery shopping as everyone splits up and takes a section of the list. The unfortunate part is we usually end up with quite a bit that wasn't on the list. :o)

So, back to the card for this week. I first stamped these cute little Chick-bunnies on Sahara Sand cardstock and colored the bunny ears with my Regal Rose and Tempting Turquoise ink and a blender pen.  I wasn't sure the colors would show up very true on the SS cardstock - but it turned out pretty good.  Then I fussy cut around the image to put on the rest of my card.  My mojo took a massive nosedive after my fussy cutting and I had a hard time deciding what else to do. It's such a bummer when your MOJO suddenly disappears!  I fussed around for a while trying to decide what to do - trying different patterned papers and embellishments, but nothing seemed to please me, so I ended up thinking I should just go the CAS route.  I pulled out an embossing folder to help give the big blank space some interest, and added a block of the blue to help the chicks stand out a bit more - ta da, Done! Whew :o)  

Well - that is enough from me for today! I hope you enjoyed your visit here and will come back again.  I'd really love to see what you create this week for the ATS&M Addicted to Color Challenge #37 - so go get busy won't you??!  The other gals on the DT have prepared some wonderful inspiration for you this week. I hope you will go visit them too.

Til next time... Hugs and happy crafting! D
