chicken soup for the soul (SCS, CPT, WMS, Retro)

Two cards comin' at ya.  First one was fun. And oh so difficult.

Listen to this chicken soup challenge (HYCCT1223): "use a chicken (hens and roosters are acceptable too ) on your card, and elements that spell the word S-O-U-P."   BTW, Sabrina, the hostess chose this because she remembers cooking up chicken soup for a friend every time she had chemo.  What, pray tell, starts with a "U"?  Think about it!

Here's my card.  Can you find my S, O, U and P elements?  Bet not.

Methinks this will work:
S:  Stickles, scallops
O:  oval, orange
P:  pink, plaid

I was inspired by the colors and crepe paper treats from The Creative Paper Trade's third challenge too.

Followed the sketch from Waltzingmouse Challenge #120 and used Waltzingmouse stamps.  I'm so glad I treated myself to  that Frenchy set with Mr. Rooster.

Second card is for HYCCT1217 to decorate the edge of your card.  I also used the Retro Sketches #34.

I love original card from Laurie W.  I actually have that PTI stamp (it's not seen ink yet). May have to give it a whirl.  Used some Tim Holtz stamps on K&C PP for this notecard.

Whew!  Thanks for coming by.  Happy Weekend ya'll.

Both cards are just delightful! I love the country and homespun feel of the first one and the decorated edges are darling on the 2nd card!! Also to let you know that I used Bazzill card stock for my RIC challenge card. (Can't go wrong with Bazill card stock!!). And thanks so much for all your wonderful comments in my blog!
