Inspiration

While having a wonderful meal Wednesday at Nancy Zook's with my Red Hat cronies, I noticed Betty wearing a cute shirt with 3 cute chickens wearing Red Hats.  It gave me a fabulous idea for a card.  I spent yesterday designing and cutting kits for a dozen waterfall cards for out Red Hat card class in 2 weeks. 
Although I was super thrilled to have one of the cards ready, I still had 6 small strips of patterned paper left over and I was neither saving it nor throwing it away.
Instead, I made these 2 fun cards.

The stamps are from SU; chickens are colored with watercolor pencils and blended with clear Wink of Stella; the dialog bubble is a cut from the CTMH Artistry cricut cartridge; the frame is a die cut; ribbon is from CTMH; the embossing folder is from Darice; and I added a few Skittles from Double Click.
 I hope you weren't expecting to see the waterfall cards.
They'll be shared after the class.

I can't believe there are only 7 entries, so far, in this week's Tuesday Throwdown Out of The World Challenge!  As a design team member, I'll have fewer comments to leave.  But, I really do enjoy visiting different blogs.  You must have something space related in your stash!  What about a cow jumping over the moon?

  6. Well, I love your 'save' on that purple paper, Debi. Throwing away anything purple would be a shame. :-D Beautiful and fun cards!
