Hey Chicky

Well I was meaning to post yesterday, but a call came from Sears that our new entertainment unit had arrived. This was a very exciting prospect as my 2 year old son has made it his mission in life to destroy all our electronics and dump all my books on the heads of unsuspecting guests who enter the door. This unit means that everything is now up high and locked up. YAY!! The downside.....How you pay so much money for a piece of furniture only to have it say some assembly required. Some assembly meant all assembly. My poor husband got it home and the two of us ( mostly him with me helping in the passing and occassional lifting) put it together. Then I spent until two in the morning cleaning up the room, breaking down boxes and organizing everything unto the unit. It looks awesome. Needless to say it was to late to post!
This card is from one of the new upcoming sets from CCdesigns. It is absolutely adorable with 4 different chicks! There are a whole bunch of other sets joining this release along with another great background.
Recipe:
Stamps: CCdesigns
Paper: Basic Grey Two Scoops DP, SU Celery, Barely Banana, CCdesigns white CS
Ink: Stewart Superior Hybrid Ink Pad in Burn Umber, Distress ink in Spiced Marmalade, Red Brick, Lipstick.
Other: Spellbinder Nestabilities, Cuttlebug flower dies, May Art Brown satin ribbon, Cuttlebug dots embossing folder, Spellbinder tag die, mettalic rub-on, Copic Markers, Faber and Castel color pencils, Twinkling H2O's, White acrylic paint, Spica glitter pen, Stickles in Fruit Punch, Dew Drops.

All supplies except SU CS and Faber pencils, Tag die available at All That Scraps. Flower was cut out from Cuttlebug flowers using Basic Grey Dp and then distressed with scissors, distress ink and embossing tool. Stickles were added to edges. Everything else is self explanatory.
Have a great day,
Hugs,
Sophie

Although I'm a couple of weeks late in reading your post, I had to comment on the self assemble furniture because my DH constantly wonders when we are going to be rich enough to afford furniture you don't have to assemble yourself - sounds like never!!

Love your blog!
