DeNami Cute Chickie's Blog Hop ...

Welcome to the DeNami Design "Cute Chickie's" Blog Hop. This month we are showing you how versatile their CUTE CHICKIE'S are to create with.

If you are following the hop you should have arrived from Heidi's Stamping, Knitting, Etc. Blog.  If you just arrived, or get lost along the way, head on over to the DeNami Design Blog for a complete list of the 27 participants.

Last month I showed you the Valentine's I created for my daughter Katie's classmates. So this month I created cards for her teacher, and the 4 assistants in her class, using E130 Chickie in Balloon.
I stamped a couple of the E137 Small Cloud using the masking technique, stamped the Chickie in Balloon and then fussy cut out a second balloon after coloring with my Copic Markers, and attached it with 3D Squares.  Tim Holtz Distress ink was used to create the sky, and then I stamped the "Thank You" sentiment from the PF26 Assorted Greetings Stamp Set.  I will add a personal message inside for each of Katie's teacher's.
