Mojo 187 -- Easter Blessings

Hello! It's time for a new Mojo Monday sketch (#187).. I hope you will join us!

By the time this posts, we will be getting ready to head to the children's hospital.. My DD, Sabrina, is having some surgery on her both of her big toes this morning.. :( Wish her (and us luck)! I have no idea what this week (or the coming weeks for that matter) will be like, but I do have a few posts scheduled for this week.. I will try to get around and visit blogs when we are back home and things have calmed down a bit.. As always, I appreciate your visits and sweet comments!

With Easter being so late this year (at least it seems late to me), I thought I'd try to get a few Easter cards made. I used Verve's Egg-stra Special today. I stamped the little chick in the egg, colored and paper-pieced, then I cut out the image. The chick is popped onto the Embossed Oval Die and both of those are popped on to the Classy Label Die. I colored some seam binding with a Copic marker and added some yummy twine from my last Verve order (Julee's packages are almost too pretty to open!).. I stamped my sentiment on the largest die in the Charming Oval Die Set and made it into a tag.
