Mornin' hens!! I hope ya'll had a good weekend. The DH, Lil' chick and I took my MIL out to dinner on Friday, to celebrate her 81st birthday! She's a wonderful woman and sharp as a tack! Seriously, if you didn't know any better, you'd think she was in her 60's!

Anyhoo, I decided to make her this silly birthday card to tease her about all her cats! It seems every time I visit, she's adopted a new stray! LOL! I saw this image several months ago and bought it on the spot for her birthday card. She got the biggest kick outta this card, she even told me she was gonna frame it! Ahhhh, right to the ol' chicken's heart!! *snort*

Ok, so I printed this great digital image called the Cat Lady from Just Inklined, onto some Neenah Classic Crest CS and colored it with my Copics. I stitched the image to some SU Real Red CS and adhered it onto some Cosmo Cricket's Odds and Ends DP. I used my MS border punch along one edge behind the image and finished with some polka dot sheer ribbon tied in a cute bubbly bow. Oh, and I had to add some Glossy Accents to her glasses for that perfect spectacle shine! LOL! OMG, check out those lips!! She cracks me up!

Okee dokee, that's it from the hen house today. Oh, and don't forget to enter my That's Krafty Thursday challenge too! You still have plenty of time but I thought I'd remind ya anyways! Have a MAH-VELOUS Monday! {{{hen hugs}}}
