Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner! (And Sneak Peek)

Thank you all for the lovely comments on the 1,000th blog post! I especially liked the suggestions, and will work toward implementing some of them (like more instructional pictures).

The random number generator picked number 4, which just happens to be (drum roll, please) Jill's comment. Congratulations, Jill!!! Your "candy" will go out in the mail tomorrow. :)

While we are on the subject of chickens, isn't this Sale-A-Bration set just the cutest thing ever?! I loved having chickens many years ago, and hope to have a small flock next year. (We'll see how it goes with my "Honey Do" list, haha. "Honey, would you please build a chicken coop?")

Anyhoo, chickens are so entertaining to watch, and are good for keeping the bug population under control. Plus, there's nothing better than a freshly laid, home-grown egg. The ones in the store pale in comparison....really! I remember telling my daughter (pre-school age at the time) that the tomato hornworms we had pulled off the tomatoes and fed to the chickens would get turned into eggs. She didn't want to eat eggs for quite a while after that, lol.

Here's the "How To"
 Greeting: Scrap of Whisper White 1-1/4" x 2-1/4"
 Image: Shimmery White 2-1/2" x 5-1/4"
 Mat: Real Red 2-5/8" x 5-1/4"
 DSP background: Party Animal (coming in Occasions catalog) 4" x 5-1/4"
 Card base: Real Red 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" scored and folded at 4-1/4"
  1. Adhere DSP to card base.
  2. Stamp chickens in Basic Black and color with blender pen. (So Saffron, Cajun Craze, Real Red, Smoky Slate, and Soft Suede used here.)
  3. Adhere image to Real Red mat, and then to card base.
  4. Stamp greeting on scrap of Whisper White, die cut with smallest Stitched Shapes oval, and adhere to card with dimensionals.
Note: The Hey Chick stamp set will be available when Sale-A-Bration starts on January 4th, and the Party Animal DSP is coming in the 2017 Occasions catalog, also January 4th. Let me know if you need a copy of either or both of them!
