Just Chicken In... {The Kraft Journal}

Good Morning and Happy Monday everyone!!!
It is time for a new challenge over at The Kraft Journal!
This week we want to see all your 
Clean and Simple 
or otherwise known as CAS creations
(a personal favorite of you may know from many of my cards)

As you may know from previous posts..we raise chickens~ hence the name of my blog :) and I am always on the lookout for chicken stamps....well I found this adorable older set from 
 Stampin Up~Best of Cluck 
but had the hardest time purchasing it....they were going for CRAZY prices on eBay so every time I was close to winning the set I was always outbid :(
Well I finally won it and this is the first time I am using it ....
So I hope you like my card!!
And I even finished off the inside....
What do you think.....Such a cute chicken right????
Since it is CAS, there were not a lot of extras added so I  linked all the products I used from The Kraft Journal below in the supplies used.
I could see making these in bulk and packaging them up for a quick hello to send to a friend.
It was super simple to put together and really what too the most time was the stitching and waiting for my stickles to dry!!

Supplies Used:
Paper~ Brown Kraft Cardstock, Bazzill Vanilla, Black
Stamps~ Stampin Up~ Best of Cluck
My Creative Time~Spring Chicken Backgrounds
Ink~ Vintage Photo Distress Ink, memento tuxedo black
Other~ Sewing machine, stickles (yellow, xmas red, frosted lace)

And here are a few pictures of "my girls"
The leader of the bunch.....she loves to follow us around  
digging for bugs....what they do best....
Bath time....rolling in the dirt

Well that is all I have for today....Thanks so very much for popping in to say hello!
Have a GREAT Monday everyone!!

  7. Jessica,
    Oh my goodness I love this. That sentiment is super cute. Your girls are adorable, never thought I would say that when speaking of a chicken, but they are! You are quite the busy woman

  8. What a sweet card, both inside and out. I could find a couple of people to use this card for. When my brother in law was living in Hawaii every morning he would go out for a run and be attached by a bunch of wild chicken, so we love to tease him when ever we get the chance! and the my daughter nick name is chicken! I actually asked her why just yesterday and she said it was because her legs don't tan so it is just a running joke between her BFF and her. Anyway I have rambled on enough, I just wanted to pop in and wish you a Happy Monday and say have a super great week. TFS!
