A sketch so nice I made it twice

Wow, a post AND a rhyme. Who'd a thunk it??? I wanted to get in a quick post while I'm laying here on the couch. I haven't felt well today. Someone had a crock pot of BBQ meatballs at work and it stunk up the office all day. Yuck. I'm trying to lay here and the cats keep getting in the cabinet under the sink. Grrr... I've chased Godiva out twice and Titus once.

So, I really liked AmyR's sketch (Scroll down 2 posts) so I decided to use it again for this card. The chicken is TCP's Beans, Bunnies and Peeps, Oh My! and the sentiment from TCP as well.
I loved the slightly startled look on the chicken's face. It also reminded me of a chicken door stop my Grandma had while I was growing up. It was a fat patchwork chicken and was there as long as I could remember. Her name was Henrietta. I called my mom to ask her what happened to the chicken and she said that the fabric wore out and Henrietta was thrown away. Then mom said the chicken's name was Robin. I disagree. First of all, why would you name a chicken Robin?! Henrietta is a MUCH better name. So, she called grandma this morning who also said that the chicken's name was Robin. I think they are starting to get forgetful, since I couldn't POSSIBLY be wrong. I told her to ask my brother when he gets home from work. He too remembers things like that...

Anywho, I used Basic Grey's - Offbeat paper, SU!'s Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate chip and that odd Coral / Mango color who's name I still don't remember. Today I shall call it Persnickety Peach.
