Chicken Soup Wishes

Happy Friday All!
Today I'm joining several cousins for our monthly cousins breakfast over in PA but wanted to share one of the cards I created for one of the five boxed sets I'm creating for one of my 1st cousins (delivering this set today).

Enabled by BFF Diane (Nellie's Nest), I recently placed an order through The Scrappin Cottage when they were having one of their amazing sales and thought this fun Chicken Noodle Soup die would make a great get well card.  These boxed sets are actually gifts for some of my cousins Amish friends who are getting married.  I sure hope these ladies like the cards I am making because I know how crafty the Amish ladies are themselves.  Anyways ... back to this fun die and card.

Here's what I came up . . .

What do you think?  

I've used Spectrum Noir alcohol markers for my coloring and it actually took me awhile
to come up with the simple design because I didn't want to take away
from these dies.

The top border was created from a scrap of floral designer paper that I punched
using a very old Martha Stewart border punch.  And, how about that sentiment ... perfect huh!

I was over visiting my crafting friend Doni High (Lime Green Giggles) and was
showing her this die set and she said "Oh wait ... I have the perfect sentiment stamp."
I think it's from Picket Fence but don't quote me.

Okay, sorry but this needs to be short & sweet today!
Hope you all have a FABULOUS day!!

As always . . .


  1. What an adorable card my friend! That little chicken sitting in the soup bowl is just perfect to brighten someone's day, especially if they aren't well! You are right, the sentiment is perfect as well. Your friend will love this for sure!

  2. This is super cute Dar! Yes, I can't stop myself from shopping when CC has their amazing sales. Your card is so fun!!

  3. Oh my, that pour little chicken, look at his expression lol...fabulous and FUN card sure to cheer anyone up...and nope I don't have this die yet, and waiting for the next sale LOL!!

  4. It is very cute. So cute that I want it! Great card. [Bunny]

  5. How fun and cute card!! :D Lovely design!

  6. What??? OMG, this is way too cute! That chicken! The noodles! Ack! Or should I say b'kok!!?? Your kitchen-y looking paper is perfect for it. Looks like wallpaper and curtains. They do have some amazing sales at The Scrapping Cottage. I always look at overstock and retired, but then I get drawn into the rest of it and, well, you know what happens then. Looks like the same sentiment set I have which is Words to the Rescue. The die you cut it with is also perfect for the kitchen. So adorable all over, Darlene!

  7. Oh my goodness this is perfect, love your coloring and you have put it all together wonderfully. She is going to just love this!!

  8. Love this card, that chicken's expression is precious!

  10. Yes, indeed! That is super cute! I can see why you wanted to own it. It works fantastic for a get well card.

  11. Absolutely cute and fun! These Amish ladies will appreciate the cards all the more, because they appreciate the work and love it goes into making them. I'm sure they'll love it them, Darlene!
    Have a wonderful day.
