My new Newton's Nook Design stamps arrived today! So of course I just had to play with them. I used Made from Scratch and Newton Loves Coffee. I have a couple naughty kitties that like to spy on the cookie dough in hopes they can sample it while my back is turned! LOL! ~D

Welcome to another great challenge from Cupcake Inspirations. 
This week we are sponsored by Fresh Brewed Designs.

For my card, I used Fresh Brewed Designs' Chick with Bunny Ears. I just loved this little fella's stick legs!  I paired him up with some fun pattern papers and a sentiment from Newton's Nook's Designs. I die cut the bow and assembled. A fun, yet simple, card for my grandkids!
Hope everyone has a Happy Easter!
