This is the card I created using ThereSheGoes stamp set titled, "Tastes Like Chicken" Apparently there was SOME discussion on how inappropriate it was to have a Possum in a frying pan and blah blah blah....I personally think it's FUNNY!!! I mean it WAS my idea along with the sentiment! ;) LOL I couldn't get the possum to sit nicely ON the couch so I figured I'd tuck him under to welcome unsuspecting visitors when they plop down on the couch! LOL I used the Home set (Topiary) and the TWeeterpated set (wall paper) and the Tastes like Chicken set (couch, framed art and possum) along with my trusty ruler and skinny sharpie to create the walls and wood floor, this is a trick I see a LOT on the MFT Cards that are great! I stamped the couch onto some OLD paper that I had around (wonder WHY I bought it) and then versamarked over the top used Clear EP then versamarked AGAIN over that and used UTEE for the second layer, cut them out and tucked the possum pieces out and put the couch down, using my ATG gun.......I hope it makes ya giggle!





THIS is the card I made for McGael and her Farm Swap...it's using SU Roosting and a Chickenwire BG stamp that my mom gave me from her stash....BOTH were unused, I though I had bought it on SCS but I remember it's one of the SCORES I found at the yard sale at my LSS...$5 WAHOOO....SO anyway I stamped the BG onto MFT Paper Panels and then the rooster and then lined up the chickies underfoot....I colored images with Copics and the paper is SU also from the EE Family. I came back with the Gelly Roll glitter pen and followed ALL the lines of the chicken wire to give it some oomph and then realised the sky was BRIGHT WHITE so I chalked it lightly in Bashful Blue SU Chalks, THEN realised the BIG GAPING HOLE in the card where the sky is so I filled it with a Button that I did NOT leave naked (it's a rule) I filled it with some of the Making Memories Twisted floss stuff..... VIOLA! Chicken Card!

I told you already, but I love both of these cards!!! That possum under the couch is killer! Such a creative idea, and hilarious!! And the farm one is really cool! I like the chicken wire and the wooden coop. And always buttons. Someday I will figure out how to make them work on my own cards.
