It's another DUDE!!

Mornin' hens!! Can you believe it, ANOTHER DUDE!! Tee-hee!! I couldn't resist resist using SUPER TROOPER TRIPP from Dude Time Doodles for my BIL's birthday card. Shooowee, ain't he a CUTIE?? Look at them arms!!! *swoooon* I even gave him a little 5 o'clock shadow too! LOL! My kinda man!! I printed the digital image onto some Neenah Classic Crest card stock and colored him with my Copics. I stitched the image panel to some SU Basic Black card stock and then adhered him to this great DP from Cosmo Cricket's Joy Ride collection. I printed the computer generated sentiment inside a speech bubble and attached it with a few pop dots.

Here's the inside: snort!

To finish, I punched a small hole in the image panel and threaded some stitched ribbon through for a cool "highway" look. LOL! Now, I'm off to the mall cuz it's BLACK FRIDAY! Woo-hoo!! Maybe I'll get lucky and SUPER TROOPER TRIPP will pull me over!! Bwah-ha-ha-ha-ha!!
{{{hen hugs}}}

Chaaaarge it!!!
Wish me and the Lil' Chick luck!

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and the number one thing we do on Thanksgiving is - EAT!! Yup, that's right, I'm gonna be busy EATIN'!! Oh, and not just a little, nosiree, we eat a bunch!! Did I mention this is one of my favorite holidays? LOL! Uh-huh, this hen LOVES to eat! The main entree at Thanksgiving is of course, the TURKEY! Yum!! Me love me some turkey. Hmmm, a hen eatin' a turkey???? That's kinda like being a cannibal though isn't it? Eweeee, maybe I better give that some more thought. *snort* Ok, enough of my silliness, onto today's card. Which needless to say, is all about Thanksgiving. Meet Heath Hunter! Heath Hunter is one of Dude Time Doodles newer images and I just LOVE him to bits. Ain't he a catch? Bwah-ha-ha-ha! Check out those teeth! Pfffft! Ooh-ooh, and here's the best part.....

The inside: Tee-hee! Ain't it a hoot??

Did I mention that I'm in the SPOTLIGHT today over at the Dude Time Doodles blog?? Yay!! I was so exited when Tammy asked me to be their spotlight designer. Yippee-skippee! So I thought, what better time to start a new That's Krafty Thursday challenge!! Right? Now you hens know the drill, but for all the new hens just visiting the hen house for the first time, well shuck your shoes and put your little hen feet up and sit a spell. I'll tell you how it works. You see, it's real complicated to play along so pay close attention. First, you need to make a project and use some Kraft colored card stock on it. Then...... um, wait a minute..... then ......well lands sake, THAT'S IT??? Yup, that's all there is to it. Nothin' hard about it at all. When you're done, just link it up below before Wednesday, December 7th at 7:00pm EST and I'll pick my TOP CHICK PICKS and post them right here on my blog on December 8th. Oh and of course the winners will also receive Clara, The Krafty Chick badge for your blog side bar so the whole world can see that YOU are one KRAFTY CHICK! So, you ready to play along?

Happy Birthday Ryan!

Mornin' hens! This little card is for my nephew Ryan. He turned a whoppin' 7 years old last Thursday. He plays a little Bball with his church so I thought I'd personalize a card just for him. After some searching, I finally found this image over at Digi My World. It came as part of a set but I loved the image and felt it was perfect for Ryan. The colors of his team are Gold and Blue so I colored the image to match. This DP is from an older Sassafras Lass paper pack and I just used my Cuttlebug embossing folder on some rust colored card stock to make the textured panel behind the image. Hopefully, it resembles a basketball! LOL! Okee dokee, that's it for me today. I hope you hens all have a wonderful Monday! {{{hen hugs}}}

So "Beary" sweet!

Mornin' hens! Isn't this card CUTE? How could you not fall for this cute little guy? Makes me wanna {{squeeze}} him! Tee-hee!
I made this card for a friend who needed a card for a baby shower. The mother is expecting a BOY and her theme is Bears. Isn't this the perfect image? I just love it when a plan comes together! Yay!
Ok, I stamped the image from the "Baby Baby" set from Ladybug Crafts Ink onto some Neenah Classic Crest CS and colored him with my Copics. I cut the image out with my Nesties and sponged some chalk ink around the edges. I popped the image up with a few dimensionals and tied this coordinating ribbon around the panel. I stitched around all the panel edges and added the Baby Boy's name below the ribbon in the shape of a banner. I can smell the BABY POWDER now! *sniff-sniff*

Today's card is also a MID-WEEK reminder for my That's Krafty Thursday challenge. The challenge doesn't close until November 9th at 7:oopm EST, so you've still got plenty of time to play along. Just make any ol' project using some Kraft colored card stock, then link your project below on my That's Krafty Thursday post. I can't wait to see what Krafty projects you hens have up your wings!! {{{{hen hugs}}}

Mornin' hens! So whatcha think of today's card? Oh boy, do I ever LOVE this card.
This is for my Lil' Chicks fella, AGAIN..... Yup, this is his THIRD card!! Lil' Chick say's, "don't worry Mom, he's savin' all of 'em!" Good boy! *snort* Anyhoo, he just closed on a townhouse and I wanted to send him a CONGRATULATIONS card. So I thought this image would be PERFECT! The inside reads, "Congratulations on "scoring" your new home!"
Great huh? This image, called "Penalty Pete" is from DudeTime Doodles. I think he's FAB and can think of several occasions to use him for! Ok, so I printed the image onto some Neenah Classic Crest CS and colored him with my Copics. I stitched the image to some SU Chocolate Chip and then adhered it to this DP from My Minds Eye. I finished by adding this big copper brad on top of some twine tied in a bow. Have a GREAT day! {{{hen hugs}}}
