Nicole and Meighen's Bday/ Bloggerversary Bash

WELCOME to

TWO CHICKS AND A BIRTHDAY HOP


A big huge HAPPY BIRTHDAY and BLOGGERVERSARY to Nicole and Meighen and thanks for hosting this blog hop!!

I’m so happy to be a part of this wonderfully talented group.


Let's get straight to it.

I’ve been wanting to create a larger easel card ~ one that would fit into a legal size envelope so this was the perfect opportunity.

The major instruction for this card is that when it’s laid out flat (not folded at all) it needs to be 18½” long ~ the rest is up to you.

 



The bunny, basket and eggs were cut from DOODLECHARMS.
The bunny footprint was cut with CURE CUTS A LOT





Of course what critter project doesn't need some PEACHY KEEN STAMPS (I drew in the whiskers)


I added a little scrap ~ folded and glued so the basket would stand up once opened.




Then I gluded the basket onto a little patch of flocking "grass".



I cut the basket twice and cut the handle and little bottom strip off of the pink so it could be layered. 




I love little banners.  This is how I make mine.

I print out my sentiment (using MS Word) leaving lots of space between each letter.  Then I grab my FISKARS star punch and align the letter within the "point".







Then cut the point off.



Draw a doodle line or use bakers twine to hang your banner from.

Now for a giveaway.

I’m going to put together a little “grab bag” of supplies ~ you never know what you’ll get (don’t you love surprises??)

The “conditions”

1 ~ be a follower of lifeatwalnuthill.blogspot.com
2 ~ leave a comment

It’s as easy as that and I'll be picking a winner (via RANDOM.ORG) on Monday, February 7th at 7:00 AM (EST) I'd really like to get this into the mail ASAP as it will include some seasonal things you just might want to use for the 14th 
Thanks so much for stopping by.

  46. ~ What a cute card! I love how you've done the mini banner - thanks for showing how you did it! The 7 blog hops I've done in the last day are starting to change my mind on this banner trend - I am not really into the whole banner trend, but seeing all the different styles is making me think twice!
