This also comes with a fun story ... When we were young, we went to the store (it was around Easter time) and as we where looking at the Easter decorations and chocolates, my brother found a little package of fluffy chicks. The package was open and there was a chick missing from it. My sister told him that someone took that baby chick and now it's missing it's mama! Well, my brother just starting crying and was very sad for that poor fluffy chick that would never see it's mama again !
It was a running joke for a few years after that !!
This Easter card I made for my nephew, my sister and my brother in law.
On this card I used googly eyes for the bunny and glitter on the eggs
This is a funny story.... when they received the card in the mail, the googly eyes had fallen off and where at the bottom of the enveloppe. My sister came up with the theory: " the chicken got pissed off that the bunny was getting all the credit for the easter eggs and decided to peck it's eyes out."
I laughed so hard because she thinks of the craziest things sometimes ... Love you guys
