Cock a doodle dooooooooo

Always on the lookout for new papers--that pretty much describes me.  I have a paper addiction.  I owe it to my friend, Catherine Mace, who taught me a lot about stamping and paper.  She told me paper was to USE.  I used to buy it an then be afraid to use it, because if I did, it would be gone, and I might need it for something.  Yes, crazy, I know.  Now I have thousands of sheets and always buying more.   I have been sharing it, however, with friends and my sweet grandchildren.  Also am "recycling" some of it (the patterns I no longer like because my tastes are always changing).  I have actually printed other patters on the back of it.  It is usually a great "weight" so it is perfect for that, and I am enjoying trying my hand at using some of the gorgeous digital papers that are available.  I also bought an envelope die from Sizzix and am making envelopes; so pretty to have a colorful envelope OR colorful envelope interior.  The papers on this card are something new that I picked up last week on sale at Hobby Lobby.  It is from a pad called "Countryside Villa" and it is from The Paper Studio.

I borrowed the stamp from my friend, Sandy.  It's from Inkadinkadoo and was a perfect fit with this particular paper.  I am glad she had it, because seriously, I never expected I would be in the market for an image of a rooster!  Just goes to show. . . .
Here's a second card using the same image and papers.

What a beautiful card. My grandmother had Roosters as decoration in her kitchen. Thanks for reminding me of those sweet memories. :)

Such a wonderful card! My Mom had a collection of roosters and now my sister inherited them :) Love the homespun feel Beverly!

Gorgeous rooster cards. When I lent the stamps I had no idea what you would do with it. Roosters aren't your usual subject. The cards are right on.
I'd take one of your rooster cards anytime.
