Chicky Night...and the Birthday Boy!

The last time I had this stamp in stock they sold out so quickly that I didn't even get one! So....I grabbed one for my personal collection FIRST this time! LOL! Are these the cutest chicks ever? And they are ready for a big night on the town!

The stamp is Penny Black's Chicky Night .

I stamped it on watercolor paper using Versafine Onyx Black ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder.

The stamped image was colored with Tombow (water based) markers and a blender pen. I added some bling to the belt on one of the chicks, and the loop earring using Hero Arts Gemstones .

I also used a bit of Stickles Glitter Glue on two of the dresses. Women DO need to shine and sparkle sometimes...don't they?

The flowers are from the Art Flowers collections by Hero Arts.

I really try not to put too much family stuff on my blog. I realize that's not why most people stop by. But I did want to share a couple of pictures from Jacob's 4th birthday party today. It was wild and crazy, and he had a blast! In this picture he was driving a car at Party Central, feeling like a big boy.

Did I mention that it was LOUD in there? LOL!


And this was the best picture I could get of him blowing out his birthday candles.

He is usually pretty photogenic and good at letting us take pictures of his cute little self. But today he had way too much going on to be patient with the grandparents who were trying to stage pictures.

Thanks to each of you for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful week!

Your grandson is adorable! Quite photogenic too.

Love your card and will surely be CASEing it this evening because (guilty as charged) I was one of the many who purchased this stamp from you last month. Glad to hear you got it back in stock so the rest of your readers can acquire it. It's my favorite.
