It's A Chicken Thing!

Friday, July 24, 2009

I'm soooo glad it's Friday!

I've been so busy since I got back from our little vacation (laundry, grocery shopping, house cleaning, etc) that I just can't wait to kick back this weekend and do some fun things like stamp and color and maybe even some blueberry picking. Yeah! Sounds perfect doesn't it? What are your plans for the weekend?

Mr Chicken is planning a quiet weekend doing what he does best - fish! :)

Chickens really do fish. I swear it! Or at very least, Anna's chickens do! LOL Mr. Chicken is from last month's release 'Hooked On Fishing' from Anna Wight and Whipper Snapper. This is the first time I've used the zig zag stitch on a card and I love how it turned out!

I colored Mr Chicken with reinkers and my trusty aquapainter. Then sponged around the edges with Antique Linen from Distress Ink's. The patterned paper is from The Green Stack by DCWV. Looooove this paper stack! I paired it with some bitter chocolate Bazzil cardstock, some cream buttons and a little bit of plaid ribbon. Love a good clean and crisp card! :)

Thanks so much for putting up with my intermittent blog posts this week. Things should be back to normal next week. I may even have some cute pics of my little Syd at the beach. :) Have a great weekend!

I NEED this set! I posted in the general stamping forum under the thread "the cutest thing" that there is a small fishing tackle box someone made and I need a fishing set for it. This is the perfect set for my needs. I am so glad you posted. I will have to remember to order this when I can.

Hi Sandra! Welcome back!! Your cards are always terrific and this one is no exception. Great zigzag stitching!!! Maybe I'll break out the sewing machine some day and try this.
