Hey, y’all – here we are at Friday again. Here in GA we’re hunkering in our houses trying to avoid the smoke from the fires in GA, TN and NC. Seeing pictures on FB of horses in harms way, homes burned or in jeopardy. Please pray for all the humans and animals affected. Help them if you can. And pray for rain. Or snow. Or any sort of wet stuff to come from the sky! 🙁
As for us, as we hunker, we’re watching Finn grow! And become more and more of a “velcro” dog! His fave activity (well, one of them!) is to “help” me in the kitchen in the evening.
Now. This next picture may be disturbing to some of you as it shows the naked bottom of a 6 month old child. So, if you’re easily offended, please scroll down really fast!
I noticed something the other day. I have proof that my little kid is an angel. It’s written on his….bottom….
So anyway – on to my card for today. It’s almost as cute as my puppy!
One of the fun little things you’ll be able to get for FREE during Sale-A-Bration is a stamp set called “Hey, Chick”.
My design for this card was based on the sketch from Mojo Monday this week – I just turned it on its side!
I took a piece of the farmland design in Carried Away and matted it on Watermelon Wonder card stock for the card front. Then I wrapped a length of Peekaboo Peach 3/8″ Ruched Ribbon around the panel, securing it in the back with scotch tape.
For the art work, I took a square of Whisper White and stamped two images from Hey, Chick on it. For the large hen image, I used my Watermelon Wonder, Peekaboo Peach and Night of Navy Stampin’ Write Markers to color the stamp directly, then used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to stamp it on the card stock square. I added the egg in Peekaboo Peach and then colored his legs with the marker.
The sentiment is also from Hey, Chick, stamped in Watermelon Wonder on Whisper White. I snipped a banner end with my Paper Snips and then added more Night of Navy “stitches”. Using a Stampin’ Dimensional and some Liquid Glue, I adhered it to the card front.
Finally, I added a Peekaboo Peach Ruched Ribbon bow with some Liquid Glue and that was it for the card front! 🙂
On the inside, I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to add a second Hey, Chick sentiment in Watermelon Wonder in the middle of a Whisper White panel. Then I stamped a bunch of Peekaboo Peach egg-people across the bottom, and added the hen peeking in from the side. I used the same marker-to-rubber inking technique as I did on the front of the card.
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Hey, Chick hen and egg-person on the front – plus some more Night of Navy stitches…
Et Voila! I loved this little Hey, Chick set when I first saw it at OnStage – so had to get it right away! I never would have figured to use the Carried Away DSP with some chickens, but…it’s pretty versatile paper, it seems! Hope you like – and will put these on your list to get free during Sale-A-Bration. 🙂

STITCHED SHAPES FRAMELITS UPDATE
Because of the extreme demand, the Stitched Shapes Framelits (item 145372) are currently on backorder and will be placed on non-orderable status on November 21, 2016, at 10:00 AM (MT). After Monday, when you enter this product’s item number in, you will receive a pop-up notification asking if you would like to be notified via email when this product is back in stock. This allows you to find out immediately when the item’s status changes and it is again available for purchase.
You’ve still got time to get your set ordered so you can get them just as soon as they become available – so don’t wait! Click here or on the image below to go right to my online store to order the die set if you’d like to be able to order before the number is turned off. The number will be turned off on Monday and you won’t be able to order them until the supply is replenished. I’ve made several cards in the past few days with these great Framelits if you need some motivation to get them ordered before you can’t! 🙂
Stampin’ Up! gave us an estimated arrival date of 28 Nov for the shipment of dies. Hopefully they’ll be back in stock that day or very soon after, so there’s not too much time before you can get them!
