Easter Chick

Happy Saturday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. We had our fish fry at church yesterday and today I feel like I am in recovery mode. (lol)!!

I spent 9 hours there. I make the crab & shrimp chowder so my day starts at 12:00 noon. All the prep work is time consuming-especially de-veining the shrimp. But the end result is so worth it. We sold out of the soup.

After we close the staff gets to eat and there were ingredients left this week to sample the chipotle tacos. Incredible is the word!! The chiptole sauce is made from scratch by our resident chef, Lou.  He does a fantastic job. They are a big hit with the crowd that comes to the event as well. Next Friday will be our last one for this year.

Now onto my card for today. This one I made for the sketch challenge #427 on Splitcoaststampers. Janette was the hostess and she provided a great layout.

I need more Easter cards so I pulled out my Stampin Up set "a good egg". I paper pieced their shells and colored the chicks with prismacolor pencils and gamsol.

This is a Stampin-Up only card -the designer papers are "sunshine and sprinkles", "a cheerful treat" and" polka dot parade" collections.

The middle panel is melon mambo and I used the Stampin-Up honeycomb embossing folder.
Well that's it for me today. So until next time........God bless
