Which Came First?

Which came first doesn't really matter to me, I hardly even give it a moment's thought.  But I have been wondering is this a chickie or a duckie?  I thought I might get a clue from the name but nope this is Paper Pretties' "One of Those Days".   Chickie or duckie, I like it.  There's lots of reasons to like this stamp.  It's cute, it's a good choice for paper piecing or for coloring, it's small enough to repeat on a card but it's large enough to stand alone.  It can be used on an Easter card or for a plain note card.  So what are you waiting for, you gotta add this to your stash.

I didn't forget the inside
 If you haven't guessed this week Paper Pretties' challenge is to paper piece.  Yippee, one of my favorite techniques so I used the image three times.  That was fun and quick.  I think it took longest to decide which papers I wanted to use. 
Need more inspiration, well go check out what the rest of the talented design team made and then get inky and play along with us.  Don't forget to link your creation up here.
