~Happy Scrappy Monday & Chicken Update!!!~

Good morning my crafty friends!

I had a wonderful weekend with my boys and crafty friends.
The class in Mt. Juliet, TN was so much fun!

I did get a small chance to scrap this weekend but VERY small.
I began a new album (to be shared shortly) and this card for a friend.
I used the April Tally Kit, and I have to say I love the colors of it.
this special Autism Charity! :)
I also used some vintage lace from my friend Gloria in Louisiana
she is just a doll and sent me some awesome vintage lace!

Ok on to the chickens....we had to move the chicks out to the shed because
I am developing allergies and I was in agony with them in the house.
Thankfully it is getting warmer and this weekend we introduced them to
the older laying hens. It was too cute! One of the red chickens went RUNNING
up and just stood there watching. It was too cute!
And of course more adorable chicken butts LOL
I had to snap pictures as they all played int he yard.
We are also excited to expand the fence for the new bigger and better flock.
We will begin work on it next week. Now we just have to find a rooster
or find out one of the baby chicks might be one! haha! That very well could be.
You can see they are 100% healed and growing like weeds, this is going
to be a fun new flock I can already tell!

That's it for me today, I am off to scrap this album and catch up on DT work.
All through April we have new releases and new goodies so stay tuned! :)

Have a beautiful Monday everyone!!
Stay tuned because I am going to host another GIVEAWAY this week
and I also have a special video coming up.

What a beautiful card and good to hear the class went well.

Don't you just love how fast the chicks grow? Do you have a Tractor Supply Store near where you live - they have roosters for sale at ours. They were Red (darn my memory!) red somethings. They look a lot like your red hens. They also had a selection of bantams - they are the sweetest chooks.

Happy Monday. I love the card. The sentiment and the color are so great.

Thanks for the chicken pictures. I know I'm not the only one who likes to hear about your chickens.

LOVE your cards! Beautiful layers here! Thanks for sharing the photos of your chickens, remdinds me of my country (Dominican Republic). We used to have chickens and my daughter had a blast following them around the first time we went back to visit.

My neighbor has chickens and they lay the brown eggs....it's so cute seeing them run around their yard. In fact, my husband bought a few chickens for the neighbor, so we can have the eggs. We live in the country and don't have a fenced area where we could keep the chickens safe from the dogs, and our neighbor has a safe area...so, I can still enjoy looking at them outside my office window by the computer and even my scraproom window! Just love how they run around! And the card....I love it!! Very pretty!
