He said, “Why, it sounds like a rooster!”
“A rooster?!?” I exclaimed. “Who do we know has a rooster?”
“Well, dear, you do live in the country. Perhaps one of the farmers around here now has a rooster.” The love of my life replied.
“Oh, brudder!” I moaned slowly rolling my sleep-deprived body out of bed. I decided to just get up and get ready early for work.
As is my usual routine, I stumbled to the bathroom and when I turned on my radio, the disc jockey was cockadoodle-doodling! I thought that was really weird, but you know how disc jockeys will do anything to boost their ratings. Stumbling to my stamping room, I turned on my computer to get my morning fix of stamping news.
“Cockadoodle-dooooooooo!” screeched from my computer as it roared to life.
“What the…???” I exclaimed. You see, my computer has never cockadoodle-dooooed before!
My foggy mind still wasn't making any connection when I went to the links in My Favorites.
I clicked on the link to one of my bestest buddies' blog called, This Is My Story. (You may know her as Mothermark or Cindy. I lovingly refer to her as da Muddermark or sometimes her alter ego, Gertie.)
“Cockadoodle-doooooooo!” screeched yet again from my computer as the infamous This Is My Story glob came into view. I just had to chuckle when I saw da Muddermark’s inspiration teapot today: it was a chicken!! Oh, brudder!
By this time, I was finally fully awake and it dawned on me that somehow, some way, da Muddermark had stopped by for a visit. She has amazing powers and this was her way of reminding Bertie (my alter ego) that it was Tuesday and she wanted me to get up and play in her TEAPOT TUESDAY challenge!
I knew it was definitely a sign!!! Quickly, I showered and readied myself for work so that I would have some time to make a card, and here’s what I came up with:
I stamped one of my favorite chicken stamps from Stampin' Up's Best of Cluck set with Tuxedo Memento Black ink so I could color him with my Copic markers. The layout is a design from the Card Positioning Systems website, sketch #118.
As you can see, my chicken also has the pox, so he'll be safe in attending the tea party in the coop this week.
You wanna play, too? Go check out the details on Cindy's glob! Bertie's bringing m & m chocolate covered chicken eggs!
I also have to show you this adorable teapot pin that MariLynn sent me. MariLynn has been a faithful Mothermark Teapot Tuesday challenge participant, and I am honored and delighted that she made this for me! Isn’t it cute?? Thank you, MariLynn! You are so very thoughtful and sweet!
Have a wonder.....er, I mean, COCKADOODLE-DOO splendiferous day!
