Welcome Baby Ainsley!

Mornin' hens!  Well, you've probably guessed from the title of this post that my BIG (or should I say little) surprise is Lil' Chick's new peep, Ainsley.  (Hatched March 14th!) 

Look at that face. Isn't she picture perfect?  Yup, I'm a proud Grandmommy! Lil' Chick, Doug and Jaxon are all doing great.  What a wonderful family Lil' Chick has.  We're so blessed.

Today Lil' Peep is 2 months old.  If you hens remember, I celebrated a birthday every month for Jaxon, so he we go for Lil' Peep!  lol!!  I made this little pop-up box card after seeing Lawn Fawn's owner Kelly make it on YouTube.  You can watch her video HERE.   I actually already had the stamps but didn't have the scalloped box die.  And what a great die to have so I'm glad I picked this one up. The box is super simple to make and when you use double sided cardstock, it makes it even more awesome.  I made another envelope to go with this card but forgot to take a photo of it.  I'm becoming addicted to making envelopes with my new 1-2-3 punch board.  It sure is a great way to use up a lot of old scrapbook paper I have.  That's a win-win for me!!   

Okee dokee, well that's it for me today.  I'll leave you hens with a photo of my two sweet babies.  I hope you all have a MAH-VELOUS Monday and I'll see ya back in the hen house real soon.  {{{hen hugs}}}

Happy Mother's Day!

Evening hens!  Just wanted to pop in and show you these three Mother's Day cards I made, and of course to wish all mothers a wonderful day on Sunday! Isn't being a mom one of God's GREATEST gifts?  

I saw this card by Kelly Alvarez on the Simon Says Stamp You Tube channel and fell in love with it, and therefore ordered every stamp and die to make them for Mother's Day this year.  I just love how they turned out.  Each jar is a shaker box with sequins inside and a jar shaped card with a printed Mother's Day greeting is attached to the back.  It's not visible from the photo but if you watch the YouTube video HERE you'll see how Kelly made it.  I also used my 1-2-3 punch board to make the envelope boxes for each.  While these cards do fit into an A2 envelope, I felt it was a bit big as well as lumpy looking, so I decided to make an envelope boxes for each from old scrapbook paper.  Take care, and stop back by next week for a special post from the hen house, ok?  {{{hen hugs}}}
