Happy Birthday Chick...

Hi everyone! :)  You know the biggest fun of my 2nd job....opening boxes and seeing all the new goodies we've ordered for the shop! You know the biggest downfall of my 2nd job....opening boxes and seeing all the new goodies we've ordered for the shop! At least I'm still making $5 dollars of my paycheck for the weekend ;)  hehehehehehe!!

When I saw this little cutie from Woodware Stamps (company out of the UK) I just knew I had to have it and then I read the sentiment, well that just sealed the deal right then and there!!

Isn't she adorable and how can you not just giggle at the the "no spring chicken but still a tasty dish"? As soon as I saw it I knew I had to make this for my's sooooo her!! A cute little critter and a funny pun, right up her alley! 
I wasn't sure about how to do the layout and keep her center of attention, I opted for something easy and had the issue of what papers...I went with some "french country" prints by Graphic 45, I thought the colors were so pretty together. You can easily see how I put the card together. I cut a tall fold base out of charcoal cardstock (4 1/4 X 11) then cut the base panel ( 4 1/8 X 5 3/8) and added it to the card base. I added a strip of the flowered paper to the bottom and then decided to add more layers VS. the cream colored crocheted lace I was going to add.  I used the "nest" stamp to make a little border by stamping it and then distressing it and then added a little charcoal strip that I had edge punched. I distressed a white doily and added it to the upper center of the card and placed my focal image there. I added the legs by poppong them up on foam take for some fun dimension and to make her look like she was sitting up. Notice something missing?? After adhering the chicken I realized that I had forgotten to put her on a panel of charcoal that I had cut...GEEZE!! There was no way to get the chicken back up without tearing up the doily and there was no way to get the doily up either without tearing up the panel under it...sigh, it had to stay just like this....dang it! Ahh well, it still turned out cute even though it missing that charcoal panel. ;P  Just imagine it being there, hehehehe!!

That's all for me today. I'll see ya back here on Monday with a new challenge from The Shabby Tea Room! I have a pretty little CAS card to share ;)
