Hey Chick! for Stampin’ Addicts Sale-a-Bration 2017 Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Stampin’ Addicts Sale-a-Bration Blog Hop! We are excited to be featuring many of the items that you can earn for FREE during Sale-a-Bration this year (January 4-March 31, 2017). You may have arrived here from Mickey Roberts’s Blog where she featured the Any Occasion stamp set or perhaps Tanya Boser’s Blog (if you are going backwards), or you may be starting here. In any case, all of the blogs link together in a circle so you won’t miss a stop!

I am excited to be featuring the super cute Hey Chick stamp set. It has three chickens, egg, and three sentiments. It could be used for Easter and all year round. My first card features the soon to be retired Petals and Paisley’s Designer Series Paper. (Stock up now!) I also used the Watercolor pencils. Yes, I am excited to announce that Stampin’ Up’s Watercolor Pencils are back and better than ever!

    The chickens scare me, but I love what you’ve done with them. I may convert to liking this set yet!

    Yapha, your chickens are just adorable! I especially love the third card with the chickens peeking through the windows.
