Starting the Weekend Out Silly

Happy Friday everyone! I made this card last night with the "other" new stamp set I mentioned in my last post. Inkadinkado has a number of small $1.99 stamp sets, and I bought this one when I ordered the Basic Gray butterfly stamp for no reason other than the fact that the two dumb looking chickens and the play on words amused me. As you'll note, I didn't get too carried away in the way of design with my card. That's mostly because I don't know who I'd send the card to, as I'm not a big drinker myself nor do I have a lot of friends who would appreciate an image of two chickens boozing it up. It will be one of those cards that I add to my "For Sale" box at work that someone will snap up right away, passing up those that I labored on much longer. That's kind of how that works. As for the card, there's not much to say. I colored the image with markers.

Materials & Tools: Colonial White, Orange, and Holiday Red cardstock; My Minds Eye patterned paper; Black ink pad; Brown Bag, Sunflower, Orange, Holiday Red, Sunflower, Kiwi, and Vineyard Berry markers; Inkadinkado Cocktails? and Papertrey Ink Polka Dot Basics stamp sets; Orange mini brads; Stampin' Up Ticket punch.

My hunter left town around noon, so I'm on my own for a few days. So long as there aren't any maintenance issues or alarms in the middle of the night in the apartment building I'll be cool until he comes home for a couple of days midweek. As for this evening, I'm going to go check out the sketch challenges on my favorite blogs and see if I can't create a little something. As always, thanks for stopping by. Later!!

How funny! I'm not a drinker myself, but I appreciate the humor in the image! Maybe you are just so giddy over all the stamping time you're going to have this weekend that you FEEL drunk?! LOL

Whatever, thanks for sharing and enjoy your creative time.
