If you love me true, if you love me still...Our love will always be real...

Happy Saturday, yall! I hope you're having a great weekend so far. After I post this, we are headed to the movies to see Paul Blart, Mall Cop...hopefully it will be funny! The boys are super excited.

Today I have my Sketch for You to Try sample for you...and just for kicks, I decided to just play. I felt like playing with Anna Wight's Crazy for Chickens set, so I pulled it out and created this little 4.25" square card.

Cute, huh? If I do say so myself. *wink* I stamped the chicken image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock, then masked him and stamped the bale of hay 3 times, and then the little chicken feed speckles. I colored the entire image with my Copic markers, and after distressing and sponging the edges, I layered the image on Chocolate and Pumpkin cardstock. I already had a scalloped rectangle cut out of Pumpkin in my scrap bag, so I adhered it to the corner of my card and trimmed off the edges. Then I wrapped some brown twine around the corner and tied it off with a brown button from my stash (which is rapidly growing...I have a current button obsession). The card base is Saffron, embossed with the Forest Branches embossing folder, sponged, then layered onto Chocolate and finally onto my Kraft card base. I stamped the adorable little sentiment onto a tag die from my Cuttlebug, then layered it with Pumpkin, Chocolate, and tied some twill ribbon with frayed edges to finish it off.

I hope you enjoyed my chickie card today! Visit Jen's blog to see the sketch and samples from Jen and our guest Kirsten. Then check out my girls Amy R, Amy S, and Susan for more eye candy. Carole is spending the weekend suffering in Aspen *hmph* but she promised to catch up later this week.

Ok, off to the movies! Have a fabulous day!

Coolest card evah!!! This one just pops off the screen girl. Wowza!!! On another note, I read your post from CHA and just wanted to send hugs your way. I have never had kidney stones but I know people who have and seeing their pain just made me want to reach out and hug you and take yours away. Hope things are getting better for you.
