did you know...

...that september is national chicken month? no seriously, i swear i'm not making this up. it's a bona fide occasion, sponsored by the national chicken council, which i'm also not making up. there's even a snazzy national chicken month logo, which i am really really NOT making up! see?

believe it or not, i do have a POINT with all of this, because in honor of national chicken month-- (but, alas, independently from the national chicken council)-- this week at shopping our stash we are looking for projects which feature a BIRD... it doesn't necessarily have to be a chicken, but it can be if you want, and in fact many of my fellow dt members have made AWESOME chicken-based projects which i know you'll enjoy! sadly, i didn't manage to pull off such a fowl-featuring coup, but my card does have two lovely little birdies:

patterned paper: crate, american crafts, echo park, october afternoon, sei; glossy white cardstock: paper accents; florals: recollections; brad: crate paper; ink: colorbox; adhesives: elmer's gluetape runner, 3m foam tape, gluedots, sewing machine

i used the latest sketch from stuck on you sketches, which i think you'll agree is rather fab:

and now why not head on over to SOS to see the gorgeous projects? but the next time you're feeling hungry, remember to...

(you're welcome, darlings!) :) :) :)


  1. Wow, you've really researched Chicken Month! HAHAHAHA! I LOVE your take on that sketch, too. And you make me want to sew on my cards more. Sigh.

  2. Eat chicken...Love it.
    Your card is WOW...so gorgeous!

  3. I can never 'hear' "eat chicken" without thinking of cows holding a sign ;) I happen to love those little birdies! The clipboard & banner are perfect - and that big orange bloom! LOVE!

  4. Maybe next year the national chicken council would like to sponsor us and we can have some kind of chicken related prize pack!!??!!
    Fab take on the sketch - love the pretty soft colours and all the embellies!!

  5. Somehow I was really hoping you'd go the chicken route ... and was strangely disappointment when you didn't :) FYI your link at SOS is broken

  6. Beautiful card, really! I knew you would make something pretty and soft. Love it!

    You wouldn't be CHICKEN now, would ya? :D) :D)

    I'm sorry, I couldn't resist.

  7. yep I agree, fab indeed, and so is your card. Thanks for joining us at SOUS.x

  8. So much for the cluck-cluck chickens.....give me this wonderful bird any day of the week! SO very pretty!!
