ROFL!!! This is one of my Dad's most favorite cartoons ever!! He even has the t-shirt!! When I saw this stamp over at Art Impressions, I knew I had to get it so I could make this card for his birthday. I really struggled with this layout though. I wanted the cloud background to be visible behind them but didn't want them just floating on a branch in the sky either. So I decided on adding the woodgrain DP on either side and I think that sorta grounded the image and I like the end result. I showed it to my hubby and he said, "take that dumb ribbon off!!" You see I listen to him real well!! Phhhhhfffftttt!! It's one of MY cards, therefore it MUST have ribbon!! He not know me vaywee well, do he?? So I stamped my image onto some SU Very Vanilla and colored with my Copics. I cut the image out with my circle Nesties and adhered it with a few dimensionals. The DP is from Cosmo Cricket and I matted it with some SU Chocolate Chip CS that I punched with my Martha Stewart border punch. The top DP is punched with my SU Scalloped border punch. Now I will give my hubby credit for the bones. He said I should add some bones to the side. Yeah, sometimes he gets it right!! So I ran and dug through my punches, found my little bone and punched two out. I added some shading and then TIED ON THIS CUTE LITTLE STRIPED RIBBON to finish!! LOL!! Okee dokee, that's it for me today. Be sure to leave a comment below and let me know what you think of my feathered friends. Have a SUPER Tuesday!

I've been a crafter all my life but finally found an outlet for my passion for paper about 9 years ago and I've been stamping ever since! I'm married to the most WONDERFUL man in the whole wide world, and we've just recently become grandparents to our SWEET grandson Jaxon! I work full time but hide out in my COOP (stamp room) every chance I get! I LOVE this hobby of mine, and sharing my creations with you here in the HEN HOUSE. I hope you enjoy your visit! Awwwk!
