Under the Weater!

Happy Tuesday friends! I hope you are having a good week! I hope your day off(for most of the US) was great! My kids are so funny, being used to German Holiday breaks from school, and just learning about the holidays in the US, my 5 year old daughter told me she didn't have preschool because it was King Ludwig day! King Ludwig was one of the Kings in Bavaria that they learned a lot about and we was several of his castles etc., it cracked me up! So, Happy King Ludwig day to you too!!

I'm working like a crazy women to get all my ducks in order so my household doesn't fall apart while I'm away for a few days...Daddy will be great!! And, my son(7) told me that he and his sister(5) will be great for dad, it will be Ruby(almost 2) that will be the challenge...ha ha ha!! Anyway, onto some fun for today!

This cute image comes from Lizzie Anne Designs February Mix, "Singing in the Rain". It is a GREAT collection of images! You can check it out and the info about being a mix club member...it gives you a serious deal to sign up for the club! Anyway, check it out here! I just love this little chick image!!

I used some white cardstock for the base of my card. My next layer is aqua mist cardstock and it has been run through the Big Shot with the swiss dots embossing folder. I used my corner chomper-do you know how much I love that thing!?-to round the edges. I stamped my little chick and then colored her in with copics. I cut her out with my bloom nestabilites and then mounted her on a chocolate chip bloom, that has also been swiss dotted! I tied some 5/8" grosgrain ribbon round, and then mounted my little cutie. The sentiment was stamped, punched with a circle and then mounted on a small saffron bloom.

Isn't she such a cute little image!? The fun we can have with her is just neverending!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a great productive day!! Until tomorrow, toodles!!
