Easter Cards for two of my Grandsons

Firstly I have to thank three ladies for the blogcandy and bracelet that I won and received during the last week, its been a complete and delightful surprise to find that it has happened, its quite awhile since I did, so Im absolutely thrilled by my wins. Firstly theres Clare Taylor of http://littlebearcrafts.blogspot.com/ for the gorgeous stamps that I won last Friday, and yesterday Claire Hall of http://clairebsd.blogspot.com/ for the fabulous blogcandy, and lastly Id liked to thank Amy Gould of http://amyscraft.blogspot.com/ for the beautiful bracelet she sent me to give to my granddaughter, thank you so much girls from the bottom of my heart.
Ive been rather busy this morning creating two Easter cards for two more of my grandsons, as both are about the same age 9 Ive created two very similar cards, as you can see, luckily they are from two families so wont be aware that the other has received something thats almost the same as theirs.

They are both made from the same chicken and for the first one Ive used the basket and the second the truck, these are all Magnolia stamps. For the second one Ive stamped the chicken then masked it to stamp the truck behind, for the first one Ive actually stamped the basket, then decoupaged the chicken on top. Both were coloured with my copic pens, and then cut out with my Nestabilitie die Label No.8 and the mount was created by drawing around the mount and then cut out. The sentiment is one that Ive created and printed from my computer and  mounted onto a piece of blue card.
The base cards are 6"x 6" white cards with three papers from the Hippity Hoppity Downloads from Nitwits, the first paper is all over egg pattern on blue paper, this was mounted onto a piece of blue card, with the second layer which is check pattern on which I have used the chick border punch by Martha Stewart and stuck across the centre, and the final layer is a another piece of blue card with the last pattern paper which has blue and purple spot design over it.
Ive then stuck my mounted image in the centre and my sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side.
