Birthday Card~ St. Patty's Day Card~ and My Chickens :)

Hi Bloggers!!!
I have a few cards to share for a couple of different challenges along with a couple pictures of 
"The Girls" as we call them
Spring is in the air today.....it was a beautiful 63 degrees outside but very windy so nothing could really be done outside without being blown over.
I did manage to get a couple of projects done though...
I recently won a stamp set over at Paper Smooches~ this adorable Party Pals stamp
and I was dying to ink it up.
I made this birthday card!
The stamp and sentiment are both from Paper Smooches
Designer Paper is from Simple Stories (?)
Cardstock is all PTI
I colored the image with my copics and added some Twinery Twine in Maraschino.
The edges were all distressed using my Tim Holtz distresser

I am entering this card into:
Birthday Sundaes~ Birthday card w/ Sentiment

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
My next card and gift bag are using the super adorable file Lucky Me and 4 Leaf Clover Shaped Card  from 
Now I posted my DT project yesterday and if you missed that you can check it out here
but I loved these files so much I wanted to play with them some more
So my card uses the 4 Leaf Clover Shaped Card file
Instead of using the shaped card I cut all the layers and just used the front of the card for this.
I added 
My Creative Time~ Scalloped and Stitched Circle Die to the center along with the Tiny Tag Die in which I put my dollar bin stamped sentiment
I tied it all together with Trendy Twine in Twisted Lime
and added some Diamond Stickles for some Bling :)

I am entering my card into the following Challenges:
Pumpkin Spice~Button, Twine and a Circle
Little Scrap Pieces~ Use a Button and a Bow


Finally my Gift bag is again from the Lucky Me file and I used an envelope for the actual bag!
My fellow DT'er Tmika shared the how to on her You Tube Channel
A very super simple bag tied all together with some fun ribbon I had in my stash!!
I plan on filling it with some treats for my son's teacher!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Ok now I just had to share some pictures of 
"The Girls"
It was so nice outside and they were loving life! I was trying to take some pictures of my card when they came to the back door to be photographed...LOL
Aren't they too cute?!?!

On that note I am signing off but will be back tomorrow with a new color challenge for
E.A.D Design!!!
Have a GREAT night!!!
