Respect The Chickens



WoooHoo I am back in blogland! Did you miss me?!  I've been on a break from blogging and crafting, due to health issues, but am happy to finally be back!  A big thank you to Jodie, the artist, all the admin staff and my fellow DT members at Bugaboo Stamps for allowing me this break from DT duties, to take care of my health.  Bugaboo Stamps and Catch The Bug are the best ever!

My first project, now that I'm back, is for Humor Me Wednesday at Catch The Bug. Humor Me Wednesday is the day of the week when we celebrate some of the nation's funniest humorous holidays! Today, I am celebrating International Respect For Chickens Day, which happens this week! Yes, yes, I know - this is an Easter card and Easter is already behind us. I just couldn't resist using this retired chicken image, though, from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers! Isn't he adorable?! Unfortunately, he is no longer available, but there are others much like him, available in the shop at Bugaboo Stamps!

I went with my pastel colors for my card, which are perfect for Easter! I've used two glittery flower buttons above the image, to add some sparkle. The image is colored with Promarkers. I used some Easter egg printed ribbon from my stash, across the center of the card, and yellow ribbon, tied in a handmade bow, below the printed ribbon. The sentiment is punched with the word window punch from Stampin Up.

*Sniff* *Sniff* I'm very sad that this is our final challenge here at Open Minded Crafting Fun Challenges. I have loved being on this team and am really going to miss it! *sniff*  Okay, okay, enough sniffling.  I'm going to get my sparkly card all wet, if I don't stop the sniffling!

Such a fun and easy one to enter.  Remember, you have two weeks to play along with us for chances to win a prize from one of these great sponsors:















I made a fun Halloween type card, using the image, Zombies Walking Dead, from SLS lines, colored with markers. I love the fun mix of patterns on these papers, with the touches of glitter.  All papers are from my stash. A great way to showcase our last challenge, don't you think?!
