A country cutie

Cock-a-doodle-doo!

Good morning peeps! Were you up with the rooster crowing?
I've actually got a neighbor who has chickens and a rooster and let me tell you, I've heard that bird start crowing at four in the morning! Oy!

So why all this talk about chickens? Well today is review preview day over on the ATS blog and I've colored up this sweet little Country Lula Swiss Pixie. Because she is holding her basket of fresh eggs of course I had to hunt down some fun country themed papers to go with her. I ended up mixing from a couple different lines of October Afternoon and I was delighted to find a sheet that had a bunch of little farm life cut-out images on it. Once I cut out the water pump, egg basket and black hen I had a nice scene for Lula to live in... even if it does mean that she has to start her day at the crack of dawn, LOL! ;)

There are plenty more review preview cards from the rest of the team, as well as some adorable Fairwee cards from my SN gals so be sure to hop on over to the ATS blog and check out all the inspiration. :)
Ok, time for me to get myself ready for work. Have a great day my friends!

Hi Amy,
This is an adorable scene. I just noticed the egg in her apron pocket! Too cute. I love her hair and will try that color combo. Love this fun scene you created with the OA papers. You always have the best ones. :)
As for roosters crowing, I hear the neighbors at around 430-5 am everyday. ugh, that's way to early for me! lol.
TFS!

Completely adorable, I love how you did her hair and all the pieces you put together for the country scene. Even the eggs are adorable!

Hi Amy. I feel really bad as I didn't even get a chance to tell you yesterday how adorable this is. I love the new stamp and I think I am going to have to get her. I love the colors you have used, they remind me of my Grandma's house when I was little. lol... When Jerry and I were first married we lived in a small trailer in a park out in the country. It's funny because the neighbors behind us had a ruster and I soooo know what you mean about 4am ruster calls. Heehee.. Have a great day. Hugs Lisa
