Hey, Chick!

I'm playing along with the MFT Sketch Challenge again this week.  I'm using the fun and versatile stamp set The Whole Herd.  I love all the cute barnyard animals.  Making this card did make me realize that I don't know what color chickens are.  I tried to make mine speckled, but it didn't come out quite like I intended.  The papers are all from my scrap pile, so I'm feeling a bit smug about that.  Haha.  I love using up scraps--not that I need to conserve.  I will never run out of paper.  I couldn't get the sentiment to stamp right, so after a few failed attempts I ended up hand writing it. 

My Favorite Things has also been holding summer school, and it's been so much fun to read all the blog posts and watch the videos.  I've learned some fun and helpful things.  For example, this card uses the rule of thirds AND it uses line to ground the chicklets (who were floating aimlessly on the gingham before I remembered my lesson!).  I feel good about incorporating 2 of the lessons, but there is more homework to do! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Loving that you incorporated Summer School tips in your card! Fabulous right? I'd say the examples you used are :) I'm such a sucker for these chicks--too cute. I also enjoy that you used your scraps...I too do the same, and sadly, I too will never run out of paper. Good problems, yes!? Thanks for joining us on the MFT Challenge! :)
