Coffee Chick

Had to post my weekend card a little early...too excited to wait. I think we can all relate to some extent this little scene. Drives me nuts when the kids (or hubby) go trouncing through the house in dirty shoes! I must say this doesn't happen very often....but when it does!!!

If you know your stamp sets well, which most of you do, you can see I altered quite a few of them to suit my purpose.

The Papertrey sentiment is originally "the right shoes" where I inserted "coffee" with my Karen Foster snap stamps.

The chicken is Penny Black, which originally holds a cell phone where I inserted a coffee cup from My Favorite Things. I tried one of the larger cups first....that did NOT look right (scale wise). So I used the cup from the square focal image of that set. Make sense???

The "oops" is Karen Foster snap stamps again. I covered it in a bubble as to make it look like the baby chicks' thought. The bubble was some packaging I saved from my Heidi Swap brads.

Stitched in pink to match her purse and cup. PP from my stash (old). Inked the edges to make it even more dirty. I had fun making this was quite the process!

Oh, I love how you changed the sentiment. I'm really not about the shoes.... it's ALL about the coffee! :)
