Just for fun....

This little card was actually part of a joke but I thought I'd share it with the hens today anyway. You remember me tellin' you that my little chick's birthday party was last weekend right? (Oh by the way, it was PERFECT and she LOVED her cards! Yay!)

Ok, well I had told her that she wasn't allowed to look at my blog last week since her birthday cards were posted. So later in the week, while I was talking to her on the phone, I told her that I had 21 clucks on one of her cards! (I get real excited when I get lots of clucks! *snort*) Ok, so the DH overheard me tellin' her this and then he got on the phone and said, "I hope you like snakes!" and my little chick says, "Snakes?? I hate snakes!!" and the DH says, "Well that's what's on the birthday card your Momma made for you. {so he starts describing the card that doesn't exist!} ....It's a snake with a frog ridin' on it's back and it reads, "sssssssslithering by with a birthday hi!"

Well, the two of them got to laughin' so hard about this fictitious card, and they continued with this all week long. Every time she would call, the DH would HISS into the phone, and she'd start laughing all over again. Good grief!!

Ok, so then at the last minute on Saturday, I decided to actually make the card he dreamed up! Seriously, I made this card in like 30 minutes! Finding two stamps that were actually sized right was the hardest part! This snake is from High Hopes Stamps and the little frog is from a Whipper Snapper set I have called "Hooked on Fishing". As soon as my little chick opened this card, I thought she was gonna fall off the chair laughing. Tee-hee! She got the biggest kick out of it and yes, the inside does read, "ssssssslithering by with a birthday hi". LOL!!

Have a great Wednesday and don't forget, tomorrow is the start of a new That's Krafty Thursday challenge, so be sure to get that Kraft cardstock ready!! Woo-hoo! {{{hen hugs}}}
