Goo Goo for U!

Mornin' hens! I know, you've probably been wondering where'd that Spotted Chick get off to, huh? Well, the DH and I "flew the coop" and took a little VACATION! Yup, we sure did and boy did we have a blast! We've been "on the go" for the past two weeks but each day had it's scheduled NAP too! Tee-hee! Uh-huh, I'm practicing to be the PERFECT "retiree"! *snort*

Ok, so even during my busy time off, I was thinking about the hens (really - I was!), so I managed to fit in a few hours of crafting too. So here's a little card I made for my Lil' Chick's good friend who is expecting her first baby. Just a congratulations card for her BIG news! This is a set I've had for quite some time now. It's a Kim Hughes set from Cornish Heritage Farms. They're no longer in business but Kim has started her own business now, Paper Smooches. I just LOVE her style and her handwriting is the CUTEST ever! Be sure to stop by and check out her SUPER CUTE sets.

For my card, I stamped the stork onto some Neenah Classic Crest CS and colored it with my Copics. I stitched the image to some SU Basic Black CS and adhered it to this older October Afternoon DP called "Ducks in a Row". I love the soft colors in this pack. The flower embellishment was done using the My Favorite Things rolled rose die-namics. I thought it added such a sweet and soft touch to this card. To finish, I added some glitter to the stork's sack and then added the sentiment with a few of the letters colored in with my Copics. So SOFT & SWEET! Have a GOO GOO GREAT day! {{{hen hugs}}}
