A Little Laundry

Well, I guess I could talk about the baskets of clean laundry that are sitting my living room, waiting to be folded and put away.  But I’m not going to.

Instead I have to show you this cute paper I found!  I’m not really sure how the clothes on the line translate to an anniversary card, but I decided to do it anyway.

On the inside I added another small strip of the paper at the top and then added the little chick there in the corner!  Isn’t he cute?  I first inked with Paris Lights and then rolled the edges in summer sunrise.  Used a brown maker for the feet and eye.

Decided I wanted to carry the theme onto the envelope, so I drew my own clothesline and cut and glued that onesie.  I am not one for cutting, but have always loved the look, so I have been forcing myself to practice.

And of course I had to add another little chick on the front. 
Hope that you have a great weekend!  Anyone got good plans?
