Hay There!

So I have to admit that it took me two hours to write this blog post.  Why?  Because I stopped after uploading the pictures to do a quick Facebook check.  Not the smartest thing I’ve done!  Because one of my peeps on Facebook had a link to a funny blog post.  And it was very funny so of course I had to read more.  And then I clicked on a link from there to another blog and you all know what happened next… an hour of my evening lost to the interwebs… clicking on one link after another… quality time all around. Good thing I made this card before I went blog surfing, otherwise there would be no card for me to share today. Heh heh. ;)


I created a farm scene using the new Green Acres stamp set from Taylored Expressions.  The inside of the card is blank so you will just have to imagine the amazing conversation that the horse and chicken on the front are having.  It might go something like: 

Horse: “Neigh.” 

Chicken: “Cluck cluck.”  

Yeah, they rock the social circuit. ;)


Of course, now that you have seen the close-up and how the chicken is groovin’ a sparkly do (courtesy of Copic Spica pens and Glossy Accents) you might be imagining a dialogue with a bit more pizzazz. ;) 

Chicken: “Know where the chicks are?”

Horse: “Neigh.”

Mr. Horse isn’t the helpful type (snicker).  Got any ideas for a good horse/chicken convo leave ‘em in the comments for everyone to read. :)
