I've been doing a lot of Christmas cards and treats lately.  I have several more craft fairs coming up so I need fun things to sell at those.  I got to pre-order from the Occasions mini catalog and the Sale-a-Bration catalog but haven't had much time to play with my new stamps.  I did manage to eek out a few minutes to create this card with the fun FREE chicken stamp set though. It is a Sale-A-Bration set called Hey, Chick.  I paired it with a stamp set from the Occasions Mini catalog called Birthday Blast for the background.  I need to make a scrapbook page with pictures of my chickens with the cute Hey, Chick stamp set.  Will I get time before Christmas?  I doubt it!  Something to look forward to, huh?

As  you can tell, this picture was made before Halloween.  I've been making cute earrings with the Cookie Cutter stamp set and punch out of shrink plastic.  I always used the oven to shrink the plastic but someone said they used their embossing gun so I tried that and it is great!  Fast and easy and so much more fun to watch than leaning over the oven door.
