A New Day – Stampin’ Up! Card

DSC_0020

Hello there,

Today’s card has been chicken approved. . .

DSC_0011 2

Hey, don’t be bothering us!  We are busy here, I tell ya!  Yep that’s two of my girls busy at work, doing what they do best.

DSC_0012 2

Laying these lovely eggs for me.

DSC_0013 2

Last year we purchased 10 Black Australorp chicks which are now laying the most beautiful brown eggs almost daily.  They are calm hens and never cause any problems.  They just go about their day in a kumbaya state of mind, softly clucking, scratching and pecking.

DSC_0004 3

But wait!  This year we added 10 White Leghorn chicks, they are now pullets (teenagers) and are hell on wheels!  We have found them on top of the coop, fences, sheds and in the neighbors yards.  They are every where!!   For their own safety we rounded them up one day (not an easy feat) and clipped their flight feathers on one wing on each of them.  This is so they cannot fly straight and get lift to get up or over things like the fencing.  On a normal chicken this is enough to keep them in the chicken yard, not these girls.  They are still escaping and we are forced to clip the flight feathers on their other wing, rascals.  I’m quite sure I scare my neighbors half to death running around in their yards in my PJ’s some days with a huge fishing net racing after these white blurs.

DSC_0018 2

These girls should start laying beautiful large white eggs in about two months.  I’m told they are egg laying machines and lay almost an egg every single day.  I’m thinking they better, lol.

Now how about today’s project you ask?

DSC_0020

Tomorrow, June 1st the brand new Stampin’ Up! Annual catalog is released. Yep it is one of the most exciting days of the year for me and that catalog is full of off the hook new products!  Now, I have new products from the catalog stacked up on my desk but I hold back and wait until you can purchase the products before I start using them in my projects, torture for me, but seems only fair, right?  No sense teasing you with products you cannot get, that’s just mean!

So here is my first project with a brand new stamp set from the new catalog, Wood Words, item 143928 and is available tomorrow, June 1st,  whooohoooo!

Be sure to check back here tomorrow because I will have the online link to the new catalog!  Get ready to be amazed. . . .

Flowers for a Friend – Stampin’ Up! Card

DSC_0027

Hello there,

What could be better than sending sunshine and flowers to a friend, even if it is in way of a handmade card.  Your friend will certain feel the love.

I love the look of the flower hedge in today’s project and putting highlights on some of the flowers in the right places gives the hedge a bit of depth.

Sepia Scene – Stampin’ Up! Card

DSC_0005 2

Hello there,

Don’t you think today’s card project looks like an old time sepia photo?  I love this warm look and it was easy to achieve using some of the wonderful ink colors from Stampin’ Up!  They really do work great together and they are colors I reach for almost daily in my stamping.

I kept the layout of this project very simple (no frills) to give it a more masculine air.

Oh Honey – Stampin’ Up! Card

DSC_0027

Hello there,

Guess what I have been up to?

Screen Shot 2017-05-25 at 3.27.12 PM

Inside one of my hives, looking at the top of the second level.  In between every frame hanging there is lots and lots of bees and honey.
Screen Shot 2017-05-25 at 3.26.45 PM

I had to add a second large brood box a couple of weeks ago to handle all the new baby bees being born ever minute.  I’ll have to add a 3rd box before long.  The queen in each of the hives are really laying eggs.  I’ll try to record a bee being born so I can show you, it’s fascinating and they are so cute with their furry coats.

So you guessed it, I was working with my beehives this morning and of course, they gave me inspiration for my project today.  I hope this creation inspires you.  There is lots of fun dimension happening from 3 different levels on this card front.
