Super Sketchy Sunday!

Eggstra Eggstra! Read All About It!

We have Chickens!  We built a Chicken Ark and we bought four Golden Comet hens.  They are my Golden Girls and I call them Sophie, Dotty, Blanche, and Rose.  They all look the same and I can't tell them apart, so I don't know who is who.  I have to rely on them to look at me when I say their name.  Sometimes I can tell who is who by their actions.  If one is strutting around like she's sexy, that one is Blanche.  One was clucking a lot today, so that must have been Rose telling St. Olaf stories.

Here are some pictures:
This is the first day we brought them home.  Don't worry, they have food and water.

This is the attic of the ark when it is opened.  There are two nest boxes and a roosting area.  Both long sides and small sides come off for easy access and cleaning.  Those long handles are for moving the ark around the yard (similar to a Chicken Tractor).

Our Frist Egg!  His name is Sheldon.

We are on our way to a dozen.  Actually, we've had over a dozen eggs produced to this date.  We've eaten some already.  They are delicious.

Stair Stepping, Color Scheming Card

I made this card using the Stair Stepping Technique. It was fun and very easy to make.
I chose these colors:  365 Cards, Day 91:  Color Scheming.
I also used a new sticker tag for the Something New Challenge at The Crafty Table.

Lounging Lady Card

This is my Lady Lounging Card.
I used an old vellum printed die cut that I had from way back when I first started Scrapbooking, my last big scrap of script paper, and some silver photo corners to complete the vintage look.
