Hangin' Out


If you missed my scrapbook layout for TSG Stampbook Saturday
that posted earlier today, you can click here.

     It's super quiet in bloggie land today, but if you're like me, you've been outside soaking up the sun and greenery of spring. Ahhhhhhhhh......  I just popped back inside for a drink of cold water and thought I'd go ahead and post this card while I was here.
     I ADORE the Girlfriends!!!!!!!!!!!  These ladies from Art Impressions Stamps just crack me up and they are so much fun to color.  AI is having a special "Girlfriends" challenge this week and my wonderful friends at City Crafter Challenge are celebrating their third birthday.  Thought Kirsty and the gals might like this one.  I'd also like to enter this in the challenges at:

Stampin' for the Weekend--friendship
Papercraft Star--use a stamp
Marker Pop--anything goes


     I usually make 5.5" x 5.5" cards but had to go to a 6" x 6" for this one cause the stamp itself is 5.5" wide.  It's CAS but you really don't want to take too much away from this bunch of cackling hens.
     The sentiment comes from AI.  I don't have the stamp for it so I just printed it out from my computer and added the Happy Birthday part.  Their stamp is a lot more elaborate.
     Hope these girls give you a laugh when you come in from however you spent your Saturday.  I'm going back out to do some weeding and give my car a bath.
     Happy spring Saturday!

Supplies:  Paper--My Mind's Eye "Handsome Boy", Bazzill, Recollections, Copic XPress-it Blending card; Stamp--Art Impressions "Comfy On Couch"; Ink--Copics; Tools--sewing machine; Miscellaneous--Michael's ribbon, flower, and button; Kraft Outlet Hang Tag String
