"Chikin" Dinner

     My family has friends whose autistic son is utterly mad about one of the nationwide food chains which serves 'chikin' and has had an entire, years-long, advertising campaign which features cows encouraging people to "eat mor chikin."  One of the things his mom does it to give him cards every few days and I'm constantly looking for images (sometimes photos) which I can use to make cards for her.

     When I saw the latest image for this month's Progressive Challenge at LeAnn's World, called "Aaryn," I knew he'd make a perfect card for her to give to Jacob.


Colored w ProMarkers
Cut w Tonic Studios die
Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon
Card front embossed w Linen EF

      In addition to that card, I found this advertising photo of one of the Cows leading cheers in one of the restaurants but, thinking of the current state of affairs, I added a mask to the cow, found some scraps of dp, printed an appropriate sentiment, and voila', one more card!      :-D


     Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

Connie, your cards are too cute and really fun knowing that it is personally fit for someone you know! That's what's so cool about making cards for others as we can do this! Love how you've added the mask with your photo! LOL!! Very clever my friend!

What a funny story Nana, it made me laugh! I think the mother is happy with your card: it is very appropriate I think!
And I also want to say that I really love the cat at the top of your blog :-)
