Hey, Chick Card

Hey, Chick is by far my favorite Sale-A-Bration item this year. These chicks are just too cute plus they make me think of my mom and sisters. My mom has always love roosters, hens and chicks and has decorated her home with them for years. It seemed like every birthday and Christmas we were buying her more. At some point she had to get rid of some to add newer ones. At least I think she got rid of them, they may just be in the garage. Our house even got daubed the Chicken Coop at some point, having 7 daughters I'm sure played a role in this along with the decor. I'm sure there was lots of cackling going on! LOL!!!

The other reason this set makes me think of my sisters is because of the crazy hair on the one bird. We always tease each other about having crazy hair or not combing our hair. We all have long hair and it can sometimes be hard to tame the frizz. We especially tease one of our sisters who shall remain nameless.... or shall she? I guess you might need to watch the video below to find out.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Sweet & Sassy Treat Box

The Sweet & Sassy Framelits are a must have especially for Valentine projects. I used them along with the Sealed with Love stamp set to make a cute heart shaped treat box.

I really wanted to make a Valentine's project that was pink rather than red. Right now SU! has an awesome suite of Valentine's products but the dsp is red and white so all the ideas I have been seeing focus on those colors. I guess I was feeling the need to be different, lol!

My original box could not stand up on its own but when I set it down on its side it gave me the idea to make a heart box that lays on its side, I am really happy with the way it turned out and know I can adapt it to other colors and even use DSP for decorating and it will be just as cute. If you decide to make a heart box similar, I hope you will share it with me because I would love to see it.
