Haven't these humans heard of tofu?

Viola! I managed to play along in Midnight Madness's sketch challenge this week. This card is for Art Impression's monthly contest in which the theme is "my other craft-Stamp a card about another hobby". I love to cook and bake so I went with the chickens looking in a cookbook. I can imagine they think it is quite disturbing to see a cookbook about 1,001 ways to roast a chicken! I can make a very good chicken, but my claim to fame is my cheesecake. Just ask my good friend Peggysue! We met recently at a location half way between our houses and I surprised her with a cheesecake. Ohhh, it was sooo good!! Are you drooling yet? Sorry, back to the card. Anyway, the dp is cooking from nana's stack. It sure is cute paper! The ribbon is something I picked up at Michael's.
Wish me luck on winning in the contest!

Stamp: Birdies and the girls
DP: Nana's stack
copics: a few yellows and a few oranges
accessories: ribbon

Thanks for looking!

  6. Karen, it's so good to get a laugh and this one did it for me!! That image is hilarious and the book they are reading may not be suitable for "chickens"!! No one ever said they were the smartest creatures. I love it and you made great use of the sketch with your wonderful dps, details and ribbons.
