Because I want to...

I was surfin' around and checkin' out the challenge blogs when I came across one of my favorite ones to visit! I LOVE checking out the Order of the Opus Gluei Blog! They always have something pretty cool going on, and the poobahs are always so nice! So...Instead of going to bed, I stayed up a little later and made this Notecard folder set for their 'Chicken theme' challenge!

The best part? I ONLY used my scraps to do it! :) Everything, 'cept the cute little Studio G chicken stamp was in my scrap pile! I'm always so happy to use up some of those odds & ends! How 'bout you?

The 5 matching postcards inside read:
'Just Chicken in'
 'Something to Squawk about'
 'Scratchin' and Peckin'...'
'Not to ruffle your feathers but...'
 and 'Happy Bird-day!'
