Sweet Sketch Wednesday #112 - Hey Chickie!

Happy Friday! Today is the big day my son finds out who his 2nd grade teacher is. He has been excited to find out since the last day of 1st grade 7 weeks ago... He can barely wait till 6pm so we can go check the rosters. haha .. he is a funny kid.

Anyway, yesterday I finally had a chance to play around in my craft room! These chances are few and far between lately so I grabbed my brand new Paper Smooches and got to work!

I was inspired by the wonderful sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesdays. I just love that blog and the talented ladies on their DT. I always find inspiration there!

Also, this card fits into Phindy's Place Challenge where we are challenged to use die cuts.. which happen to be one of my fav's!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

I agree, your card is super cute!! It is a darrling set! I love that little bird! I got a chuckle out of your son because my grand-daughter was here last night and couldn't wait to find out who her teacher is. She won't find out until Monday, two days before school starts. Isn't it wonderful the love school! Thanks for joining us. We love your creations!
