Chickie Couture #7 and a GIVEAWAY



Hello, blog friends! Popping in today with my next installment of "Chickie Couture" for DeNami Design!!!

This time around we're heading back to school! It's my pleasure to introduce to you: 

Nerdy Chickie!


Wouldn't this be a fun card to slip into your kiddo's lunchbox...or, give to a teacher?!?!

Nerdy Chickie was super simple to create! I stamped the Large Chickie I60 image, added some color with markers, and cut him out. I hand drew the glasses, cut them from black cardstock using a craft knife, and then wrapped masking tape around the center part (couldn't resist that little detail...HA!) The bow tie is from the Funny Faces set CL-CY003 and the pencil is from Back To School Chickie CL-E153. The background notebook paper was created with Basic Borders 1 CL-BD004 and a border punch (see complete supply list below).



I hope you like my Chickie Couture creation for today!

Now how about a GIVEAWAY?!?! Leave a comment on this post for a chance to win a SURPRISE prize package! That's right...I'm not going to tell you what's up for grabs---you just have to trust me on this one!!! Comments must be received by Friday, August 16, 2013 at 11:59PM PST. I'll announce the lucky winner here on my blog on Saturday, August 17th!! GOOD LUCK!!!
