Hello, hello my friends!
So I had intended to have this card made for a review preview this past week but there was a bit of a hiccup in that plan when my mom ended up going back to the hospital in Seattle on Wednesday. She is still there but I'm hoping that she will get to return home sometime this week. No worries in this being a huge setback or anything, it's just a part of her healing process and she really is right where she needs to be. It certainly doesn't help that the air quality is so extremely poor here, the smoke is just thick and horrible... you can't even see the mountains across the lake anymore! I'll be so glad when we get some rain to help put out all of the forest fires.
Anywhoozzle... all that to say that this card took a bit longer to finish than I thought it would. ;)
But I really wanted to color up this sweet new Lucy with her great hair and funny little chicken pals. The background was a real no-brainer, as soon as I opened up the Harvest Lane 6x6 paper pad it's like the pieces all put themselves together. Which is a big reason why I LOVE Simple Stories so much. When I spotted that house in the print it reminded me of a chicken coop for Lucy's feathered friends.
Well, I promise you'll be hearing more from me soon... October previews are right around the corner and I can't wait for you to see what we have in store for Christmas. :)
