An All-American Chick ... A 15 Minute Project

Pin It

Happy Tuesday, boy and girls!

Today's card project was created for no-good reason using this uber-cute stamp from Imaginisce's "Fairest of Them All" collection.

I stamped the l'il birdie using Outdoor Denim dye ink on Stamper's Select card stock from Papertrey Ink, then die-cut the stamped image using a Nestabilities Labels One die.

I adhered a strip of Glitz Frosting, tied on a striped grosgrain ribbon, and added a cute heart-shaped eyelet. Easy-peasy and ready to serve in just 15 Minutes!

For all the patriotic deets, check out the Supply List, below.

Sooooooo, this weekend Sheila, her crazy sister, Jill and I were hanging out when Jill, who is unmarried, mentioned she was anxious to have children.

"Ummm ... wouldn't it be a good idea to have a husband first?" Sheila asked.

"Maybe," Jill replied, "but I want to have children and I want to have them while our parents are still young enough to care for them."

Now there's a plan!

Love your CAS card! That birdie is a cutie. Jill makes good sense. Parents are usually more helpful than a husband anyway.
