Sorry you're having a RUFF day

Mornin' hens!  One of Lil' Chick's fur babies had surgery last week so I decided to make him this card.  When they first brought him home he was really sore, and didn't want to even move.  But Lil' Chick and Doug figured out he'll move for ice cream!!  Woot-woot!  Me too!  LOL!

So they would go to Burger King and get him an ice cream cone just to get him to eat.  Psssst... I think he's just faking to get some ice cream!  {snort!} Anyhoo, I made him this little card and put a Burger King gift card inside.  Bwah-ha-ha-ha!  Hey, just wanted to be sure he knew Grandmommy was thinking about him.  

Okee dokee, that's it for me today.  I hope you hens have a TEE-RIFIC Thursday!  {{{hen hugs}}}

I think you're SPECTACULAR!

Swoooooon!  Ain't it GRAND!  
OMG!  I can't get enough of this card.  I just keep smiling every time I look at it.

I know, I'm crazy, but what can I say!  I made this card for my ever so SPECTACULAR son in law Doug!  Because he is just that - SPECTACULAR!  And I thought it was high time I told him so too!  I've been wanting to make this card every since I saw Jennifer's post HERE but I never got around to it.  Finally, this past weekend, I did.  And I LOVEEEEE it!  I know he will too!  Hey, that's why we're cardmakers right?  To let people know we're thinking about them.  Man, I love this little hobby of mine!

Here's a close up of the glasses.  I die cut 6 pairs from black cardstock and one pair from black fun foam.  This created the height I needed for the googly eyes. I also adhered a piece of transparency between the first and second layers too!  I added the eyebrows and mouth just like Jennifer did and I think that little touch MAKES the card!  Oh, and I decided to add the little bow tie on the bottom since Doug wears a suit everyday to work.  Too cute, right?  Okee dokee, that's it for me today.  I hope you hens have a GREAT day!  {{{hen hugs}}}
