Farm Fresh Chickens



Well, I jumped on the bandwagon and bought some of this Farm Fresh DP and couldn't wait to make something with it. My daughter had a snow day today, so this a.m. I promised her I'd play in the snow with her (it wasn't good snowman-making snow though...bummer!), so after going outside for a bit and getting some hot chocolate when we came in, I went straight to my stamp table!

The layout is from the CCEE girls, who just started back with challenges yesterday. I just flipped the sketch sideways.

Stay warm!

You picked the perfect dp for this stamp Denise..I think they were meant to be together..Great job on the distressing..We had a two hour delay. My son was so disappointed.

Gabriela said...

Oh yeah - I love that October Afternoon DP with this chicken stamp. This is fabulous! Minime also had a snow day down here in VA and our snow wasn't worthy of a snowman either but it was fun cuddling and making S'mores with hot cocoa and teeny tiny marshmallows. Be safe.
