Hey There Chickie


Is this not just about the cutest little chicken you've ever seen!!!!! I LOVE the little polka dots on him. It's a free image that you could get by playing the progressive challenge over at Delightful Inspiration. If you didn't play last week in order to get the free image, you can still buy it in her store.
This will be going to my sister-in-law as a "just a note" card. She absolutely LOVES chickens. She has them in her kitchen, dining area, and all through the house. CLARIFICATION: Susan, over at Susan's Day Off Creations just left a comment on this post wanting to know if she had like LIVE chickens running around everywhere.......When I finally finished laughing I figured I'd better clarify my previous statement - She has chicken type ITEMS all over her house - like figurines, pictures, etc....(Thanks, Susan!)

This was fun to do and I got to use my chicken wire background stamp again. I used Real Red, So Saffron, and White card stock. The image is framed using the Nestabilities Label 1 die. The sentiment is computer generated.

Thanks for stopping by...........

I like how you added color to the background of your image. The chicken wire and red check are perfect complements to your chicken.

I read your description of how your sister has "[chickens] in her kitchen, dining area, and all through the house" and I'm envisioning having to step over chickens running around, clucking and laying eggs all over the house. I know you mean items with chicken images, but it's just funny the way you put it.

Oh my- the image of live chickens running all over (they smell really bad too....!) I love chickens (on items...well, to eat too....LOL)- and the image screams for red- perfect! I had better get off the computer and go make mine- it is going to be a busy week!!! I love the BG and love the button accent! TFS
