Cosmo Cricket Play - Lena & Hans

I have had a long day! I started it off running errands and picking up drain cleaner, shower cleaner, and some other stuff we needed. My intention was to clean the bathrooms -- but I started to do a load of laundry and realized how much of a back log of clean laundry there was that was not getting put away that I went to the source, my closet, and realized it was not getting put away because the closet was a mess. SO, flash forward a few hours -- I gutted my closet onto the bed and I am slowly hanging things up and reorganizing and making it all nice and pretty -- but there is still a ton of crap on my bed. M will freak when he sees how messy it is -- but I decided there was no chance of getting it all finished before he gets home, so I took a break and stamped a card instead. *evil grin*

I stamped and colored some chickens and a cow (Penny Black) on a sample rectangle I had left of my Prism Papers sample that I got months ago. I was trying to find some paper that matched it and I came across some Cosmo Cricket samples that my old room-mate, Carrie, had sent out. The paper in the Dutch Girl pack matched perfectly (this one is called Lena & Hans and secretly that is what I am naming my chickens on this card) -- partnered with my real red card stock and sage shadow card stock -- the card was "mostly" complete. I played with some black with white polka dot sheer ribbon and found a pleasing way to layout the card. A final touch was to add the liquid applique on the chickens to make them "fluffy." The sentiment is one that I picked up at Michaels -- by jg demi for Studio G. It was just perfect for this card. The sentiment is popped up on pop dots! So, are you sick of the cows yet? I am just having so much fun with them, I don't know that I can stop -- maybe this week I will do a cow image giveaway so some of you can have fun too!

Okay, back to the closet cleaning for me *grumble grumble* Happy STAMPING!
