Addicted to Stamps & More Challenge - Holiday

Good evening friends!
Here to share a new challenge that's up over at
Addicted to Stamps
For this challenge, we'd like to see your "Holiday" creations!   So get ready to pull out your crafty stash and have some fun creating!  Our sponsor for this week is Stitchy Bear Stamps.  They will be giving away 3 images up to $10 worth!!  We can't wait to see what you come up with!

Here's what I've decided to do for my creation:
TEE!!  This chick makes me smile! :)  I've paper pieced the chick and the Easter eggs next to him!  I've used my oval shaped dies to make a fun egg-shaped shaker card!
The fun stamps come from a set called  Spring Has Sprung  by The Alley Way Stamps.
I've used a grass border punch to create the grass for the images and then stamped some more "grass lines" from an image in the set.

I've stamped the background with a sentiment and image from the same stamp set as well.
Here's what the inside shaker elements look like:
I put several brightly colored sequins in there along with some flower sequins and other elements that I have in my stash.  The bird's beak was colored with an orange metallic gel pen.  I've attached a bow at the top of the card as well as some twine for a bow on the chick's neck.

So be sure to hop on over to the challenge blog to see what my fellow friends have created for this challenge too!!  Hope you can join us!
Thanks so much for stopping in this evening!!  See you soon! :)
