Finally, I See the Sun!

Could it be?  Is that actually the sun peeking up over the horizon?  It seems like ages since I last saw it.  My yard is squashy, my chickens are damp, and we need some serious drying time.  Here's hoping today doesn't bring any little showers.  To celebrate the sunny day, I made a fun little card.  Hope you like it!

Stamps:  Gradation (Impression Obsession)
Ink:  Versamark
Paper:  Enchanted Evening, Cork Sheet (PTI), Powder (Hero Arts)
Misc:  Wooden Sentiment, Dot Mask (Studio Calico Card Kit), , Shine Spray (Mr. Huey's),  Bubbles & Crab Sticker (Random Things In My Stash)

I found this cute crabby guy while cleaning out my basket of random embellishments.  He was too cute to not make a card with.  It was a ton of fun to make this little card and I hope you enjoy it!  On a side note, remember the picture I shared of my little peepers when my husband picked them up at the post office?  Well, here they are now:
Have a great weekend!


  1. Love how you made the sand out of cork. Fabulous! And here's hoping the rain stays away for a bit for you!

  2. Wow, are they egg laying chickens? And are they messy to have in the yard? Or are they penned?

    What a cute little crab, fun card!

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Joyce! Yes, they are for eggs and we've grown pretty attached to them even though I swore we wouldn't. ;) They poop and like to scratch around looking for bugs but I've been surprised with how easy they really are to care for. Plus, they keep the bugs in my garden and yard down to a minimum. Can't beat that...especially with all the rain we are having. I'm worried that when we finally dry out the bugs are going to be terrible. More snacks for the chickens, I guess.

  3. Hey there! Your card is ADORABLE! And I am guessing our chickens are the same age! They look the same! I had to look twice because I thought that was a pick of ours! lol!
