Springtime Chickie

     Hello chickies!  :-)  I have a little cutie this morning to wish you a happy spring.  The image is "Springtime Toadstool" from the Whimsy and Stars Studio etsy store.  Couldn't you just squeeze him.  LOL
     I've colored him with Copics and chalked the background.  The image panel was ringed in Diamond Dust for a little sparkle.
     My teammie Cheryl has also posted a card using this little sweetie today.  You can pop over to her blog to see her version.  She gave this little fellow some fluff with flocking.  :-)
     Pop over to the Whimsy and Stars store and check out all the cute Easter and springtime digis Mabelle has in the store.  Bet you'll find several you can't leave without.  :-)
