Happy 4th of July!

Happy Independence Day! I hope you all have wonderful plans for this weekend! It sure is a hot one here in Florida! We're planning a BBQ over at my Mom & Dad's with the whole family so that ought to be fun (and yummy of course).

Isn't this chicken the BEST? Oh, how I do love farm animal stamps! This stamp is from Whipper Snapper, another one of my favorite companies and Anna Wight is one of their illustrators. She is AWESOME!! If you like farm animals, you gotta check out her sets.
I made nine (yup-that's right, nine), of these little cards to send out to my family for the holiday. I send out cards for just about every holiday. Of course, they all know the drill.. NEVER and I mean NEVER would they even think of throwing away one of my masterpieces, so they PROUDLY display them when I visit their homes. {grin} My family is the best, they do know how to flatter me (not to mention stay alive). I colored my little patriotic chicken with my Copics and stitched around the outside. The DP is from Kaiser Crafts and the card base is SU Kraft. I tied some ribbon into a bow and added a button threaded with twine to the center. I stamped a few images on white cardstock as well as some on Kraft. I couldn't make up my mind which one I liked best so I used both! Have a wonderful, relaxing weekend!!

  1. How adorable. I like them both. I think I like the one on Kraft CS better, but the white one looks good also. Great job on the coloring. I like the bows with the buttons also. Have a great time at the BBQ and a great weekend.

  2. These are absolutely darling, adorable, fun and fabulous!

  3. I saw Teresa's at the bank on Friday and I just adore him.

  4. How WONDERFUL! I'm so glad Sandra gave me a link to your blog so I could see these little masterpieces!! I'll be sure to come back and see more of your shared projects! Cluck cluck! -Anna.

  5. I love the brown chickens! The dots on his tummy are cute.
