Happy Easter


Hi all! Just hoppin' by to wish you all a Happy Easter. When I saw this free digi on Alice's sweet blog, I grabbed it right away from A Day for Daisies.

I wanted to color the little chicks in rainbow colors because years ago, I remember seeing them exactly like this at a local farm fair. Colored chicks!


It was such a novelty and they were one of the most popular features at the fair. My sister and I stayed by the incubator and watched the chicks hatch--fun!

I flipped one of the images so the chicks were facing each other, and colored them all with Copics. I typed the sentiment using a cool font by Jennifer McGuire that you can find here. I love a cool font.

Thanks for stopping by and sharing a bit of nostalgia with me. Happy Easter!

  14. Yes, I remember the colored live chicks too. As a child I wondered if they were embarrassed to be so oddly colored but then maybe chicks are colorblind or don't detect color the way we do. I think it is no longer acceptable to color the chicks which is why you don't see them anymore. Anyway, your card is so Eastery and brings back happy childhood memories. Thanks for taking me back in time...good times! Have a rainbow Easter!
